What is a dumHey?

You might be wondering “how did we come up with the business name DumHey Fun Factory and what is a DumHey? When our youngest son does something awesome or sometimes just for fun I’ll put him on my shoulder and march back and forth like a soldier.  My son came to call this march a “DumHey” because of the victory chant that goes with it which ends with “dum HEY!!”. “Dad give me a “DumHey” he’ll say. One of the greatest joys in life is being a dad.

History of our magnet mounted gumball machine

What started out as a fun family project has now expanded into a small side hustle & a chance to teach a few business skills to our homeschooled kids along the way.


It’s not often we see the cousins from AK. In an effort to make it memorable with a fun laser cutter project our magnet mounted gumball machine is born. 


When local cousins anounced they were moving to CO we were sad. As a goodbye, we’ll miss you, comeback often gift we gave them a slightly improved version is of the gumball machine.


By Sept the idea came to add the dinosaur dispencing head & the zig zag path that the gumball decends. Kids love to feed the dinosaur. 


In January and beyond improvements continued to be made. Being a makers is so much fun especially when it involves family and friends.
