Classy Claw Machine
A claw machine that, instead of being filled with cheap plastic knockoffs, contains interesting and high-quality prizes.
Disclaimer: This might be a WIBNY.
Small prize claw machines are typically filled with cheap, mass-
produced trinkets that have little to no actual value and are, frankly,
boring and uninteresting. There's no thrill in winning a crane game
just to receive a low-quality piece of plastic. In keeping
tradition of upscaling fondly remembered childhood nostalgia (see
links), I suggest a "high-end" claw machine. Like the surprise ball
(see third link), this claw machine would be filled with eclectic
vintage curios and handmade gadgets. The items in the machine
would be one-of-a-kind and hard to get, things that you wouldn't
normally be able to buy; the prizes would be packed by hand, with a
diverse selection of cool knickknacks carefully curated for each
shipment. Of course, the claw machine would have to be a bit more
expensive to use, to make up for the higher quality prizes. But I
think that a lot of people would be willing to pay five dollars to get
something that's fun and unique.
