Product Types Part 3

Toys

Fun and entertainment delivered one capsule at a time! Toy vending can be very profitable but is also very dependent on your location and the products you choose to sell. Just like adults, kids are very aware of what’s popular in their world, so make sure you stay abreast of what’s hot in the toy market. Standard toy capsules are set to vend in 1” and 2” toy vending machines.

  • Perfect for: Kids, teens and young adults
  • Pros: Unique product offering. Easy to refill and manage inventory.
  • Cons: These machines see a lot of touching and handling by children so they should be heavy-duty and may require cleaning more often.

Novelty Items

These are in the same category as toys but the product is typically geared for teens and adults. Some novelty products you are probably familiar with; keychains, sports trinkets, and adult oriented jewelry, all fall within novelty item products. There is some crossover for kids, many children are avid sports fans for example, but not many kids are going to take a Harley Davidson keychain over a bouncy ball, so always be aware of your locations demographic to pick the best performer for your bulk vending business.

  • Perfect for: Teens, young adults and adults
  • Pros: Unique product offering. Easy to refill and manage inventory. Great for racks and multi-units.
  • Cons: Novelty item products are not as universal as many other vending products and do not work well, in general, as a standalone product.

Stickers

A popular flat vend product, stickers make a great addition to your product line-up when used with the right location and foot traffic. Typically geared for kids and teens, stickers come in a huge selection of styles and subjects to choose from.

  • Perfect for: Kids, teens and young adults
  • Pros: Unique product offering. Easy to refill and manage inventory.
  • Cons: Stickers are not as universal as many other vending products. Also most stickers only cover one theme per column, so using a 3 column or more machine per location is advisable; greater costs in your initial machine investment is normally required. Additionally many parents, who control the money, are not fans of stickers, or their removal when placed where they don’t belong, which could impact your sales in family oriented locations.

Temporary Tattoos

Great flat vend product to boost your bottom line. Tattoos are hot and have been for several years, with their popularity, temporary tattoos have become a way to have fun and make a statement about yourself and personality. This product comes in a super selection of styles and designs sure to please any crowd.

  • Perfect for: Kids, teens, young adults and adults
  • Pros: Very popular and unique product offering. Easy to refill and manage inventory. Wide array of design styles and looks to fit your locations demographic.
  • Cons: Most tattoo packs come with a central theme per column, so using a 3 column or more machine per location is advisable; greater costs in your initial machine investment is normally required.
