Preteen Builds Awesome Lego Candy Machine

It takes in nickels in exchange for M&M's or Skittles

Kids these days: if they're not screwing up and drinking marshmallow vodka, they're wowing us with their skilled Lego craftsmanship. Apparently, a 12 or 13-year-old kid made this Lego candy machine, with slots for nickels to get some M&M's or Skittles. It's super impressive, especially since pennies and dimes don't work (for those sneaky thieves in his home, i.e. probably kid brothers).

There are even locks in place to prevent robberies, and secret Lego pieces altered to hide among the regular ones, and three individual chambers (one for M&M's, one for Skittles, and another for the money). Watch below as the narrator shows you how the machine works, opening it up so you can see the mechanics of it. Unfortunately, we imagine this means those sneaky thieves will be able to break into the machine, but honestly, $0.05 for five M&M's is such a rip off.
