I love claw games. I have no idea why, but I love them. I can't walk passed one without at least wanting to load it up with quarters. For years, my husband told me I was ridiculous, but he has since learned the magic of the claw. Now it's like our thing.
When we were on the cruise last month, there was a claw game in the casino where, instead of stufed animals, we played for $100. It was $1 per play, but I think we made our money back. Husband walked out there with $200.
Now that we're back on dry land, you can pretty much only play for stuffed toys, but it's still fun. We're like the dream team of scoping out an available get and finding the perfect position for the claw. If Little Brother is with us, the only thing that gets in our way is physics. And when the claws are rigged.
Last night, we pumped way too much money in to a claw game at a toy store. We like playing because it's fun to win, but the best part about the whole thing is that we almost always give the toys to a nearby kid. I don't think we need any more stuffed animals. We got to hand three or four complete strangers toy to snuggle with (so what if they're filled with lead?!), and they were all super appreciative.
So, yeah, we waste a lot of money on stuffed toys that cost pennies, but it's like our skill. We can master pretty much any claw game. And we can make some unexpecting kids smile in the mean time, so BONUS.
As always, it's hip to be square, kids.
