*Introducing* Kit of the Month

A subscription box for your crane game

What’s essential to running a profitable crane game program? High quality plush that’s relevantly themed or trendy and consistent win rates (because winners=players) are two of the main ingredients to a profitable crane game operation.

There can be lots of planning involved — You should be asking yourself: “What will be popular in a few months? Will the plush items I pick be high-quality and drive game plays? How to do find plush that meets my quality criteria in a consistent price range month over month?”

Unfortunately, these decisions are frequently made on guesses. We don’t know about you, but we like certainty! That’s why we created our Kit of the Month (KOM) program, to help you simplify and maximize the profits of your crane program.

What is KOM?

Our Kit of the Month program is just like any other subscription box program you’re a part of. You sign up and receive your new, high-quality plush kit at the start of the month, automatically. It’s hassle-free. Well… you will have to physically stock your crane with the new kit each month, but that’s all!

You don’t pay for the items until they ship and you can cancel at any time. Plus, It’s 100% backed by our Happiness Guarantee! (See our return policy here.)

Why you can’t live without KOM!

Without Kit of the Month, you risk having stale product in your cranes for months at a time. This discourages guests, especially repeat guests, from playing your crane games, which hurts your profitability.

In the Kit of the Month program, the new mix every few weeks keeps guests playing! It provides your cranes with a seasonal mix of trendy plush that arrives just in time to drive game play. For example, our January Kit of the Month is Valentine’s-Day themed animals, which gives you a whole month to sell through before the holiday is over! 
Just look at how lovable they look! 👇😍

Being a part of Kit of the Month also reduces product decisions, reduces ordering time and makes managing your crane program more efficient. With similar size and price points each month, you won’t have to adjust your win rates and payouts will be consistent, which also attracts players.

The kit features a different, generic theme of crane merchandise. It’s designed to be a convenient and affordable service that keeps your cranes irresistible and your guests intrigued. Here are some of our past kits:

When do I get my KOM?

If you want some more time to decide, you don’t have to sign up in January. You can sign up at any time in any month. After you sign up, your kits ship automatically each month.
