Though of this one whilst looking at the deep fry vending machine idea. Take one of the crane games from an arcade. Add three or four 'death chutes'. Stock with irritatingly cute soft toys. one of the death chutes could be a deep fryer, others that spring to mind are a combustion chamber, circular saws and an acid bath. The toys in these things are not normaly worth having anyway. This would add some excitement to a fairly dull contraption. Maybe you could retain the chute that leads to freedom, and the idea the becoming navigation of the obstacles; not dropping the toy into the death chutes (unless you want to!)

       Fill it with Furbies. I'd feed it banknotes until I was destitute.

       Then you'd have the *Save the Endangered Furby* protest...

       ... and we could put them in the machine too. They're sick - killing them is a kindness, really.

       I see traumatized children. Surprised no one has mentioned cat uses yet.

       Traumatized children inside the machine? Nah, that sounds a little too harsh, doesn't it?   

       I see a resurgence of voodoo dolls coming to market very soon.

       there are always those funny little troll things. they, shirley, were intended for something like this.

       how do you get the troll into the machine?
rbl, Aug 23 2002

       That's easy. Tell him there's a great pole-pants idea in there...

       How about a mulcher?

       How about a chute that pitches the toy into a batting cage?
