Kids love Halloween because they get to dress up, act like a monster, and be rewarded with free candy. Then you become an adult, and suddenly have to deal with little monsters demanding free sweets. Halloween is suddenly less fun, unless you build a Lego robot to deal with trick-or-treaters.
Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks’ latest creation is this Halloween Candy Thrower (you can build your own with the plans available here) that hurls tiny Snickers, Mars, and Reese’s peanut butter cups at anyone who walks up and triggers its motion sensor. You don’t even need to say “trick or treat” to be rewarded with candy, which feels a bit like cheating to all of us who grew up having to mutter that free candy password.
