Magnetic Rainbow Spin Wheels
I was amazed to see what others said about the magnetic spin wheel. I buy 60 of these every year as part of a Christmas gift for my students. We have never experienced such problems! Sometimes the metal pieces need to be squeezed to be a little closer together...maybe others need to try that. I have never had one that could not be easily fixed. My 7th grade students love them!

These spin wheels do not work. The spindles are not long enough and do not taper at the ends, both of which features would keep the wheel on the track. As it is, the wheel is constantly falling off the track. In addition, the track is not long enough for the wheel to gain enough momentum to turn the corner at the end of the track. The spin wheel is frustrating to play with because it is nearly impossible to get it do do what it is designed to do. I purchased these spin wheels in spite of other negative reviews because my daughter really wanted them, but that is a decision I regret.

Good price, quality could improve
I purchased these for a gift bag give away. They are metal, so they are better than many of the plastic options, but they take some getting used to for the kids to get them to work. The kids liked them, but they could be improved by making the magnets stronger on the wheel. The one I got for $5 at the toy store works much better - so it's the price plus the "non plastic" that made me decide to get these for the kids.

These were purchased for a birthday party. The quality is poor and the design is lacking. Even when you get them moving, they tend to bind. Nothing like what you may remember as a kid.

Bought to sell at a Santa Shop, but wasn't overly impressed with quality to feel confident in selling them. Had no problem returning them thought. Customer service very helpful.

Not easily used
The item is constructed poorly. The wheel does not flow and slips off the ends. The metal form is not evenly shaped which is what causes the wheel fall off. It ends up being frustrating to play with. Also the plastic clip comes off easily and does allow the wheel to slip off at the < > part of the metal.

A fun prize
Used as a prize at a cub scout event. These were a lot of fun for the boys.

The toy falls apart easily and cannot handle speed

I bought 3 dozen of these for party favors and I'm glad I tried a few before giving them out. They fall apart over and over again. The cheap red plastic piece does not stay on the metal bars...it doesn't have a clip to stay in place. The magnetic wheels keep falling off the track & will ding up your floors when they crash down. I'm not sure what I will do with them...I don't want to pay to return them.
