About 12 weeks ago, well before the Lockdown Stay at Home orders one of grandsons had a look through one of my toy books to find a “Lollie/Candy Dispenser”.

Pa can you make me one of these?

My answer was, you have a birthday in September!

With assistance from Handy and supervision from Papa Smurf an old honey jar was added to a slide mechanism. Of course Handy wanted to sample the M&M’s and Skittles but Papa Smurf warned him off opening the bags as they are for Ollie’s birthday.

Good fun.

-- Lifes good, Enjoy each new day...... Cheers from "On Top DownUnder" Crowie

Neat little prezzie for a sweet tooth crowie...

Wish you were my grandpa… my immediate family didn’t temp me my birthday till it had to be disclosed when I was enrolled at school at the age of 8. Only told me about Santa quite a few year later.

Can it be alcoholised? That ”shot” sized dispenser may be a tad too small.

My daughter said.
Dad, We have to do a TEST RUN!

After seeing it worked we left it full of the M&M’s in the wrapping.

Now that will definitely be a WOW FACTOR photo for Ollie.

Very nice, Peter! Did Handy get his sample after the test run? Sounds as though he’s been a very patient helper!
