Child's Play?

I was very surprised to see this. It's supposed to be one of those machines that you put money into and then direct the claw over the toy of choice (and wind up getting some other toy). But in this machine, while there are some toys, it's mostly filled with boxes of cigarettes!

How expensive is one game comparing with cigaretters price?

Good on you for exposing this. It's a smoking gun!

Notice it has some stuff in it to entice the kids too. This is interesting.

Do you any idea who or what the money goes to?

This is CRAZY!

That is a crazy idea! Over here cigarettes must not be sold to children under a certain age....one of these machines would mean even a very young child could have access to cigarettes.

I can remember when candy cigarettes were in vogue. I "smoked" them as a child but thankfully never took up the real thing. Now, I can't believe the candy variety was ever allowed.

that is pretty crazy - jus as ruth said - here , you have to show ID - to be over 18 to get cigarretes - I am surprised it is so open and accessible - do many teens smoke in your country?

Interesting. At first I thought maybe it's an adult version of the game. But then you see the toys which are for children.

Bad, bad machine!!
