An arcade in East-Yorkshire, England changed their typical winnings from the ordinary stuffed animals to more coveted prizes, like toilet paper and hand sanitizer, according to Global News.
Eddy Chapman, owner of the British arcade, has decided to capitalize on the coronavirus outbreak while attempting to keep people’s spirits up.
After noticing that many shoppers were "panic buying," he thought he would, "have a bit of fun with it."
Chapman appears to have started a bit of a trend. Another man, in Devon, England, changed his movie-themed prizes to hygiene amenities as well. “We evicted the character from Frozen and the Peter Rabbit teddy bears and replaced them with hand sanitizer and toilet rolls,” Rob Braddick 48, of Ho Barts Amusement Arcade told the publication.
Photos of Braddick’s creation were posted onto Facebook and he wrote: “This is all getting ‘loo-dicrous’ in Westward Ho! That small Carex hand sanitizer is nearly as rare as hen’s teeth.”
The photos show the claw-machine games filled with toilet paper, which people are hoarding world-wide.
Players will pay around $0.65 for three attempts to get a roll of toilet paper, while chances for the hand sanitizer bottles are a little pricier, going for around $1.30.
“It’s a bit of light relief with everything that’s going on,”said Braddick, “Hopefully it will raise a smile, which I think everybody needs.”
