why I needed a claw machine

and how to supercharge my business

I am unsure when my love for arcade machines truly began, but it undoubtedly had a profound impact on me when I watched “Wreck-It Ralph” in 2012. The film’s depiction of the arcade world resonated with me deeply, evoking a sense of nostalgia and fascination that I had never experienced as a child (given that I was born in the early 20s). The idea of queuing up to play captivating games, spending time with friends, and losing track of time in that vibrant atmosphere captivated my imagination. While I recognize that the movie encompasses much more than just the arcade setting, it was the “arcade feeling” that truly stood out for me.

Even after the movie had ended, I couldn’t shake off the longing for that authentic arcade experience, despite never having lived it in reality. Several years later, I decided to quench my thirst for the arcade world and unexpectedly found myself working shifts in a local arcade—talk about a dream come true! The mere presence of the “Fix-It Felix Jr.” game, the very one from “Wreck-It Ralph,” was an absolute delight, and I eagerly played it during every break. However, as fulfilling as that job was, I still yearned for something more.

When I embarked on the journey of starting my own business, I knew I wanted to create something extraordinary—a unique way to sell my products and captivate customers’ attention. And in that quest, a brilliant idea emerged in my mind: a claw machine! The allure of the claw machine’s charm, the anticipation of trying to grab a coveted prize, and the joy of witnessing others’ excitement drew me in. It was the perfect addition to my business, injecting a touch of fun and nostalgia that truly set it apart.

Now, I hope when customers visit my market stall, their eyes will immediately be drawn to the colorful, inviting claw machine. And that it not only adds a playful element but that it also creates a sense of friendship as people cheer each other on in their quest to secure a prize. The arcade ambiance I had always yearned for has become a reality, not just for me but also for those who visit my business. Every time I see the delight on someone’s face as they successfully grasp a prize, I am reminded of the magic that first captivated me when I watched “Wreck-It Ralph.” My love for arcade machines has come full circle, transforming from a mere longing to a vibrant reality that brings joy and excitement to both myself and others.

Fulfilling a long-time wish of owning a claw machine, I was pleased to visit their showroom and thoroughly delighted by the exceptional hospitality extended to me. Witnessing my son and his friend's pure joy and excitement added to the overall delight.

Ik heb onlangs een full-size arcade besteld en ik ben echt positief verrast! Hoewel ik geen eerdere ervaring had met arcades, gaf de keuze voor MadeForArcade me meteen een goed gevoel. Mijn verwachtingen zijn volledig overtroffen; de arcade ziet er prachtig uit!

La prise de contact est simple et rapide. Patron a l'écoute du client et connaît ce qu il vend. La machine achetée tourne parfaitement et ne présente aucuns défauts d utilisation ou de construction. Il y en a pour toutes les bourses. Complètement dans mes attentes, le son de qualite et le monnayeur est un plus dans ma recherche de la nostalgie.

Een mini claw besteld en in slechts 2 werkdagen geleverd zonder beschadigingen! Altijd vriendelijk geholpen geweest op mijn vragen, zelfs 's avonds laat en in het weekend. Duidelijke handleidingen aanwezig. Ze hebben ook een showroom waar je eventueel de toestellen kunt uittesten. Zeker een aanrader als je buitenlandse grijpkasten wilt kopen zonder gedoe met douane & hoge verzendkosten, koop het lekker lokaal bij made for arcade! Een onderneming vol met ambitie, doe zo verder!

We have ordered a 4K virtual pinball machine with 4 screens. Everything went perfectly, each contact with the team was quick and conclusive. Pinball has arrived to us in Switzerland. We chose to take a local carrier as it seemed easier for everyone. The pinball machine is fantastic and we don't regret our purchase. It's a pity that we can't modify the parameters of the tables (encrypted files). We definitely recommend Madeforarcade for any purchase.
