As of May 1st, 2010 the Milwaukee County Zoo has swaped out the Alligator for a Green Stegosaurus and the Flamingo for an Orange Tiger.
I am told more will be changed to dinosaurs as we get closer to the end of May for their dinosaur exhibit.

William A Jones as swapped out the red giraffe for a red manta ray at Brookfeild zoo. There is also a new machine on the way for the bear exhibit.

Thanks

Does anyone know where the Pirate Molsdarama with “Florida Turnpike” is exactly located? I woud take a trip to buy one of these.

posted by Ron Humphrey on 05.30.10 at 10:37 am

Hey Ron,
As far as I know there haven’t been machines on the Florida Turnpike for over 20 years or so. I remember getting them on the Turnpike as a kid on the way to my grandparents’ house. I have seen a few pirates from the Field Museum show up on eBay in the last couple months.
Hope that helps.
Will

posted by Will on 07.18.10 at 11:11 pm

There is one seller now selling those Pirates from the Field Museum for $9.99 each plus $3.26 for shipping. He currently has 10 lightish blue pirates available from the Field Museum. Sounds like a good profit margin if anyone buys them from the greedy man–he’s not a collector, just a seller. I won’t bore you with a link, if you want one ebay search for mold rama.

posted by Vlack Veard on 08.03.10 at 8:27 am

The Mote Marine aquarium’s machine made a gray shark, back in 2007. I don’t know when it changed to the seahorse.

I found the cow-making machine in the farm exhibit at the Lincoln Park Zoo, but does anyone know where the gorilla-making machine is?

posted by Suzy on 08.10.10 at 9:21 am

I love the fact you have the locations list. I got my first one at Marineland in Palos Verdes, CA around 1975, (a dolphin)
Can you tell me if a locations list exists for California?

posted by Heather B. on 08.17.10 at 10:35 pm

Vlack– I’ve seen quite a few MARs up on eBay with a starting price of $9.99. Wouldn’t pay that for newer or current molds, and hopefully others don’t encourage that either.

Suzy– Mote Aquarium has had the grey/black shark for the last several years. They just switched to the seahorse a few months back. Not sure where the LPZ gorilla is located.

Heather– I think the LA Zoo was the last location in CA, but got rid of all of their machines a couple years ago. I was there in 2004 and they still had them, not sure exactly when they disappeared.

posted by Will on 08.24.10 at 12:26 pm

The Milwaukee County Zoo swapped out the kangaroo, koala, and panther machines for additional dinos. (purple T.Rex, grey brachiasaurus, and brown stegosaurus)

Kind of a bummer. I wanted that panther.

posted by Jane on 08.26.10 at 1:49 pm

We just went to Busch Gardens Tampa Labor day weekend…..we got a dark grey kangaroo, pink flamingo, black gorilla (one arm raised). Saw an elephant and a tan giraffe…….didn’t spot a tiger or a rhino…..

We also owned (yes, past tense) many more from the Lowry Park Zoo before my son of 4 demolished them……..

We have a light stegosaurus from the Orlando Science Center..

Wiki Wachee currently has a blue mermaid and a dark green alligator (allgiator was out of order when I went over the weekend).

There is a ridiculous seller on ebay, with many recent mold-a-rama up on auction, advertised as being older. This seller is also claiming that there are no longer mold-a-rama machines anywhere in chicago. I doubt anyone will bid since they want like $80-100 for each figure. It’s pretty apparent that the seller recently went around the chicago area bought a bunch of them and is lying about them being super rare. Very sad!

I’m a historian and my small company The History Bank dabbles in all things history. We’ve specialized in world’s fairs and have become somewhat obsessed with MARs. I had several as a kid–in 1962 at the Seattle World’s Fair–and I’ve just stumbled into the current world. I’m doing research and we may do a book for the many collectors of MARs and of funky stuff in general. I’m probably much older than most of the folks I see collecting, but there’s no law against being a fat old historian; there are probably enough young ones! This site does a terrific job of listing locations, what’s in the machines, etc. and it’s this approach that I’d like to see+history in a book. I’ve just gotten serious and been trying to find folks like you who obviously studies and loves the things. I’ve bought many on ebay and you’re right about the mix of collectors and sleezy sellers and it’s occasionally tough to differentiate. This newest guy (9/23/10) on ebay is flat out lying–says machines are gone (doesn’t answer emails either). It’s tough for someone like me and myriad others with even less knowledge trying to figure out if ANY of this material is actually old such as the fairy castle. Like everything on ebay (we sell historical items too but focus on accuracy and honesty–novel concept!) it can be very difficult trying to sort out the 2-3 vintage pieces from the 10 someone is calling old. You see it in every genre of collecting–so sad that dishonesty abounds, but at least you can usually tell quickly–about 10 seconds w/some of these hot shots–whether you are talking to (or buying from) a serious collector or someone out to screw you. Thanks for providing this space and hope to hear from you re: book suggestions, for example. Best, Norm Bolotin (and I’m anxious to hear form any and all collectors who have history to share) PS I was able to mount a search and find about a dozen original 1962 Seattle World’s Fair Mold-a-Ramas and I was beyond thrilled. I never thought I’d find examples of these. I’d say that finding the 12 was during the 1990s primarily and thanks to collectors/hunters at flea markets before the internet and ebay was a factor for half and then the second half on ebay.

Just to let the community know I live close to the Orlando Science Center and I often pass by Gatorland if anyone needs something from there. Also Im looking for the astronaut as long as it has been around since at least 1980. Im trying to replace the one I had as a kid that I got from Kennedy Space Center in 79/80. Thanks!

I got most of the MARs at the Seattle Science center. (The stupid mole rat machine was out of order)

Brookfield Zoo now has three holiday Mold-A-Ramas: A red snowman, orange reindeer, and blue angel.

Some of the other machines are different than the ones listed above and they’ve all been moved into the buildings for the winter. The rest are:
Silver eagle
Grey rhino
White standing polar bear
Black waving gorilla
Red kangaroo with baby
Green alligator
White penguin
Brown Bear
And supposedly a grey elephant, but the Pachyderm House was closed the last 2 times I visited.

According to some messages on the Oklahoma City Zoo’s facebook page, their Mold-A-Rama machines are being removed. Please join me in contacting them and asking that they keep their machines!

The OKC zoo is the only location in Oklahoma with MAR’s, and one of only two locations in the entire Southwest US.

Brookfield zoo has their Halloween MAR’s operational until Nov.1 They are, Frankenstein, Troll, Skull, Devil, Tiki head, and it seems like one more. They can tell you at the information booth.
The Skull machine would only take quarters, and the Troll machine would not inject enough plastic so the back of his head is pretty bad. They are aware of the problem and are trying to get it fixed.

posted by Joe5988 on 10.24.11 at 11:56 am

FYI – the Henry Ford Museum has temporarily switched out the black antique car for a “limited edition” mold called “Liberty.” Its a tableau of a Civil War soldier shooting a cannon, to commemorate the museum’s recent Civil War exhibit in cooperation with the National Archives (which included an antique cannon). Although the exhibit closed in September, the mold was still available last week, but I was told it will be switched back soon so if you’re in the area hurry over and pick one up!

Last week I was a field trip chaperone for a middle school visit to the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. The kids liked the zoo, and the big hit was searching for all the Moldorama machines. They were fascinated by the machines, which amazed me with all the high tech gadgets they are exposed to these days. They were using their phones to look up the history of the machines and came across this site. The zoo had several of the molds switched out for the holidays. If I remember correctly the holiday molds were Santa, standing angel, and reindeer. One kid was buying them to give as Christmas gifts. The panther mold was not working properly, and several students lost their two bucks. However, we discovered that the main gift shop keeps a stash of them under the counter just for this circumstance. Can’t wait to head up to Mote Aquarium and get the seahorse, very detailed.

I visited the Museum of Discovery & Science in Ft Lauderdale, FL today. They had a brown otter and according to an employee it’s the only machine they have anymore. It’s by the main entrance, in front of the concession stand, and before actual admittance to the museum so you don’t even have to buy a ticket. It was $2.

Just got home from a great weekend in Chicago. My Girlfriend and I used the Chicago CityPass (Highly recomended deal to see all of Chicagos attractions) and we came home with 11 perfect MARS. We got:
Willis (Sears) Tower- Full Figure Abe Lincoln (Blue) Willis Tower (Black)
Lincoln Park Zoo- Gorilla (Green) Pig (Orange) The Cafe closed at 2 so we missed the lion.
Still Mad about this because we were there all day and waited till 230 to get lunch.

The Triceratops machine was broken with blue wax all over the mold and platform.
Museum Of Science and Industry U505 Submarine (Grey) Tractor (Green) Space shuttle (White) Train (Black)
I also have the Three Monkeys (Brown) and Gorilla (Black) From Monkey Jungle in Miami, FL. Where the Humans are Caged and the Animals Run free! a great place, highly recomended.

Gatorland still has its two machines. The white gator is just inside the entrance near the Gator Jumparoo show area. The black gator wrestling machine is back by the gator wrestling show area, but was not working today. There was no out-of-order sign, it just doesn’t seem to be plugged in. Be aware that several employees I asked told me that there were “numerous” machines and that I would just have to find them for myself. There really are only the two, so don’t waste your time looking for others.

A couple locations on the zoo’s map are slightly inaccurate. The shark is tucked away on the east side of the primate building, across from Macaque Island where the map shows it to be. The blue panther is inside the wolf trail building, not outside along the trail itself.
