Cmiller Posted September 16, 2013 Share Posted September 16, 2013 Months ago, we introduced a series of mixes titled 'Crane Toppers' to our website. At first we began with the Funko Pop! figures for 'Monsters U', 'Smurfs', Germies and audio speakers/ headphones. Now, we've added MP3/4's and more Funko Pop! figures depicting the 'Duck Dynasty' cast. All of our toppers are pre-strapped for use in cranes or redemption machines, but the straps can be easily removed if desired. The idea of using 'Crane Toppers' is similar to using premium 2" capsules in a Treasure Mix and showing it on the display. It entices the customer to play more to win the better prize. Of course one would position the premium prizes under the less expensive items, so that they are harder to grab, but clearly visible enough to motivate the customer to continue play. I have a vendor in Washington state who placed two headphones in a knobby ball crane and doubled his profits, even though one of the headphones was won. It definitely is a concept that has been in the market previously, but has had a new generation of operators who are now seeing a nice return.
