Bringing Animated Characters to the Penny Machine Business

March 20, 2018   •   In Press Releases   •   By charactersunlimited

Experts in animatronic characters and penny crushing machines, Characters Unlimited Inc. and Lindberg Manufacturing have joined forces to bring you the first machine of its kind: The Character Penny Machine.

Upon insertion of $1.00, the animatronic character instructs the user to select 1 of 4 custom penny press designs. The shiny, new penny drops from a hopper that holds approx. 1,000 pennies and into an electric penny crushing mechanism. With its hand attached to the crushing mechanism handle, the character appears to actually be crushing the penny. The crushed penny then drops into a metal tray for the customer to take home.

Characters of any theme may be placed inside a character penny machine. Names of just some of machines we have made in the past include: Gorilla’s Pennies, Pappy’s Pennies, Pirates Pennies, Salty’s Pennies, and Esmeralda’s Pennies.
