Default claw machine victory!!!

I was at the mall toady with my daughter, went to radio shack to pick up some more resistors. On the way out there is the notorious claw machine that has rapped me in the past. NOT TODAY! HAHAHA

I had 5 quarters with me at the start. 1st attempt landed scooby doo just to the inside front of the drop hole. 2nd attemp I was able to just come around and knock him over into the drop zone.

Taylor was excited so we decided to try for more, having no change I dropped in a $5. 10 credits were given.

3rd attempt netted the bear. 99

4th attemp netted the blue guy

5th attempt netted the green bear. Only when dropped he got wedged and would not fit thru the hole.

having 7 credits left I decided to drop the claw a few times to knock it down. unsuccesful after 3 credits.

With 4 credits remaining I said to hell with it and went for the MSU fist. Score! dropped right on top of the bear. Now having 2 things stuck in the machine I spent the last 3 credits dropping the claw, again, unsuccesfull.

What to do now....? I stuck the blue guy up on top of the back side of the door, unable to place hime far enough up the door I had to use scooby to finish pushing the blue guy up. Success! I slammed the door up a few times and the blue guy was enough to push the bear up and reposition him!

All three cam crashing down. My daughter was so excited! It was a great moment that I will never forget.

I have a bad temper when I lose money so easily, so I never attempt those machines.

AWESOME, my dad and uncle dropped a lot of money in those machines back in the day never had much luck. Nice to see the bear is sporting the number of Nascar's next champion!
