The "gripper has an adjustable strength". Many years ago at such a machine in a ten pin bowling club, I pulled out 8 cuddly toys for my then girlfriend in almost as many goes, before a member of staff suddenly appeared and declared the machine "Out of Order" and turned it off.

No it was working just fine as far as I was concerned. :-)
