Claw Machine

I visited Japan two years ago and collected a lot of stuff. At an arcade in Hiroshima, I played a claw machine over and over again, winning many small toys (pictured below). I had wanted to do some sort of project with them for a while. The toys are overly cute, and the game was overly addictive. A page of animated gifs seemed to be the appropriate combination of these two characteristics. I had also recorded audio on the trip to Japan, including the music that played in the arcade with the claw machine. I used this music and animated the toys to create my Monday project. Click on the link below to visit it (Firefox works best).
