Funko, a maker of collectible vinyl figurines, unveiled a patent-pending vending machine with a touchscreen that dispenses character toys called Snapsies.
The patent pending snap-and-match technology allows kids to add an extra layer of personalization to an already diverse lineup of characters like rock star unicorn Jett, super-athletic mountain goat Billie, and hedgehog Boe, the baker, according to a press release.
To support this line, Funko has created a delivery system with a touchscreen-display retail machine that lets kids immerse themselves in the world of Snapsies through video shorts created by Funko Animation Studios. The machine dispenses a toy capsule for instant unwrap, snap and play.
The machine dispenses a mystery Snapsies character in a plastic capsule costing $10 that comes with a head, body and accessories to snap together, according to a CNET report.
If a kid gets more than one Snapsi, they can snap together different character parts to make your own custom character.
Snapsie machines will arrive in retail stores this fall, starting with Target, according to the press release.
