Hard to control. Did not make designs. Wheels didn't stay
I was very disappointed in this product. I had hoped to share a bit of my childhood with my granddaughters but there was no way we could get these to work. The wheels would not stay in the grooves to make a design. They constantly jumped out. I thought it might be just to hard for the girls but it did the same thing when I tried. Instead of the fun design we only were able to make disappointing scribbles. I just threw them away.

They don't work
In order for Spiro art to work, it acts as a gear. This product does not work because the space where it twirls or acts as a gear slips. Its like a screw that's lost all the threads or a tire without treads. It is a pointless purchase and frustrated my students.

Does NOT work
I loved spirograph as a kid and was excited about this but it does not work. I, as an adult, can't even get it to successfully work consistently, let alone a kid. The grooved inside circle slips when you are doing your spirals on the inside every time the pen/pencil get closest to the edge. Very disappointed.
