Mold-A-Rama Photo Gallery

My first encounter with Mold-A-Rama machines was 35 years ago at the Denver Zoo. You could choose either a black gorilla or a green dinosaur. When you deposited two quarters in the machine, it came to life. You got to watch the action through window on the machine. Clear plastic tubes would deliver hot waxy plastic into a metal mold. After a little while the mold would open and your cast toy would drop down the chute, still warm and smelling heavenly. Are any still in operation? (Thanks, Gary!)
