Walmart 5491 Highway 151 Marion
Walmarts in general are filled with claw machines, so I'm sure on future trips to Walmart I will dip back into this well, but I did the one in the main entrance, not the food entrance or the garden entrance. There were also two options, the one with the gold watches and stuff and those weird black rocks in the bottom, or the one I ended up playing.
Completely stuffed with lovable toys
Now this particular machine was well stocked with decently usable stuffed animals. Most on top are snowmen which seem more fit for a mom to decorate the house with than a little kid to have, but that's ok, still a decent quality plush toy. An interesting thing to note about this machine is the ad in the back of the machine which shows a very sad bear getting rescued from the claw machine and a slogan. Now I'm not a good blogger so I didn't write down that slogan or even remember it, but it was something like Play to Win. Might have even had the word me in it, as if the bear needs you to win it.
Down to the brass tax of things. Overall this machine was pretty terrible, I mean yeah look at all those quality toys, but let's be honest. They are all too big. Machines like this have toys that are too big and the claw is too loose, even though there is the illusion you could win because the toys are teasing you on top. You get around the sweet spot between the head and the arms with the claw and it just breaks grip and comes up empty without even lifting the bear out of place. Now where is the fun of that, I don't even feel like I could win. This particular machine was 1 dollar to play as well, so poor grip, and 1 dollar to play. It was a pretty standard machine, unlimited moves, but a timer set to 30 seconds, so plenty of time to get from one end to the other.
Bottom line is, I wouldn't waste my time with this game again. The bigger prizes are usually not worth trying for, they are just too heavy for the claw to support, it needs some serious grip to get around those bad boys.
