Sharper Image® Motion Activated Candy Dispenser
This dispenser would have been great if there was a lip to catch the contents. Sometimes just moving the container or accidentally moving you hand in front of it causes content to dispense.

Purchased this dispenser mid-December for my cubicle. Discovered it doesn't dispense if there's not enough candy. After 4 short weeks, it stopped dispensing. Refilled it-nothing. Changed the batteries-nothing. The light just quit working, maybe burnt out but no way to change it; or the motion detector stopped working. Either way, it was fun while it lasted, but definitely should last longer than 1 month.

You're in for a treat (or seventy).
**The below review is written by an actual owner. All events are true, and without exaggeration.**
Do you love candy? Then boy are you in for a treat. Unless you don't need a treat, then this is still the perfect choice! Why, you ask? This nifty gadget not only dispenses candy, it has portion control! Are you a bit on the slender side this holiday season? Swipe your hand under and presto! You've got more candy than Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. On the flip side, did you have one to many pieces of mama's sweet apple pie for Christmas Dinner? Hit the egg nog a little harder than usual? Well good thing the dispenser somehow recognizes you've got bear claws for hands. Four pieces for you. Nine times out of ten, this bad boy accurately dictates how much candy you really should be eating, and little ones, this baby is definitely on your side.
And how much should you be eating? Too lazy to walk all the way over the counter for a sweet treat? Well then you probably don't need that sweet treat anyway, and this dispenser is sure to see that. As you pick this dispenser up off the counter it gives out a warning cry, releasing a small portion of it's treats... and the second you set this fine piece of machinery on the table it's going to be raining skittles all over the family pet. Mr. Snuggles sure does love the taste of the rainbow, and since you were so lazy half of your delicious treats are now in a puddle of blues, reds, and yellows all over the floor. Better be a bit more sneaky next time, silly!
All in all, this grade A piece of Chinese handy work is sure to keep you and that cute little pomeranian happy as a clam. Not to mention how much cleaner your floors will be!

Did not dispense candy
Put batteries in, set on hard surface and candy didn't dispense. Will exchange, but if it still doesn't dispense, going to get full refund.

Gnerally speaking... I like the dispenser and am trying to think of healthy snacks to put in it. I stole the gift from another employee, because I wanted to 're-gift' it to my daughter. I'm reconsidering this only because it's hysterical to watch co-workers come into my office to take/steal some. Sometimes it only dispenses what's left in the hopper from the prior usage, sometimes it only dispenses ONE and other times they've removed their hand too fast to find them spill all over. :-)

Consistently jammed when trying to dispense candy or nuts.
