Why it’s awesome

  1. Engineered for fun

Behind the design

When we were testing an early prototype, one of our coworkers said it looked like a cute robot spitting out dominoes. So they drew a face on it. From then on, the domino machine had a face!

    Gave it as a gift. The young man receiving it was excited to start building it. He is going to be 12 yo.



    It works most of the time. It frequently jams.



    Really fun build, directions are great, but pieces continually fall off as you put it together so it gets frustrating. you need like 4 hands to make it lol. but it comes together and super fun to play with!



    I recently ordered the Domino Machine for my 9 yr old grandson. He loved It! The directions were easy to follow. All parts worked as intended. He continues to enjoy both the machine and the 100 dominoes that came with it! He gives it 4.5 stars! I give it 5.0 stars!

    We loved the domino machine!



    It was lots of fun to make however a few holes did not line up well and the face plate did move alot when lining up dominoes meaning a few times it did knock them down however it was fun to build but the dominoes themselves will be used more than the machine itself which is sad
