Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kamp Truly Surprised!
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!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cathyjones Hope for a full refund!
Bought these for my son to give to his third grade class. I tried one and they are horrible. The wheel jumps off the track when you get any speed. One time when it jumped off track, the wheel broke into four pieces. I know how to work this, since I had the original back in the 60's!
Could never be given as a gift.
Hoping for a full refund!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Duffy8 A little disappointed
I put these in gift bags with other treats for Santa to hand out at our family Christmas party. Unfortunately, the metal bars bent which made the toy no longer functional.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Redvinemama Frustrating
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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MomBos 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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pmhand poorly designed
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.
