This is my Pooping Moose. Lift his tail and he poops a gumball.

I like it, great idea. What happens when you lift his leg?

Nice Job.

The original pooping moose was originally invented in Alaska no far from where I live.

Here’s a little history if you’re interested.

WASILLA – Poop Moose has pooped its last candy dropping.

The wooden moose that dispenses treats from its rear brought its inventor the Manufacturer of the Year award from the Made in Alaska program in 2000, but owner Darryl Fenton said he’s done.

Sales dropped off after Poop Moose was confronted by a less expensive rival a few years ago. Made in China and sold in Alaska Fred Meyer and Wal-Mart stores, Mr. Moose is more approachable at $25, a quarter of the price of the original handmade Alaska version. A smaller Poop Moose sells for $70.

Fenton, 39, said with sales down he can no longer afford employees to do the manufacturing in his Wasilla shop and a health problem makes it dangerous for him to run power tools himself.

Fenton said he’s looking for a buyer to revitalize Poop Moose. Sales were as high as $350,000 in the late 1990s, he said.

“Now it’s pretty much zero.”

Fenton invented Poop Moose in 1995 and patented its dispensing device. Lift the head, and candy stored in a closed compartment in the moose’s back is released from its rear. About 100,000 dispensers have been sold, Fenton said, most made by Lower 48 manufacturers.

I have been looking everywhere to buy one of these. I bought one years ago from QVC and I haven’t been able to find one since. Do you make these for sale? Do you know where I can purchase one? Your’s is awesome! Thanks.
