I took this photo last Friday at the Auckland Museum. It is a souvenir making machine. You put a coin in, and it presses it and out it comes with the souvenir picture of the building.

About fifteen years ago, we took the girls and we went to most places in New York, Washington DC and LA. The girls too enjoyed making their souvenirs too. Those souvenirs are gone, but it was good experience for the children.

Too bad you still don't have them.

Interesting machine!

My kids call these 'penny squishers' It's so cool to see them elsewhere.

I took a picture of this machine and am going to post it and have people guess what it is! It seems they are all red! Are you going to post the coin?

I like messing up with this machine sometimes we don't expect what comes out and that's a lot of fun. Happy weekdays!

We have alot of those pressed pennies from different vacations we've taken! They're the perfect souvenir, because they don't take up alot of space!
Happy REDnesday!
