We purchased this item not having any clue what it was. After reading the instructions on how to assemble we were adamant on whether or not it would work. I said no way. My boys (9 & 6) both said yes. After we assembled the toy (which was SOOO easy, btw), we tried the product out. I explain the ...see moreof the reviewer's review

The first one we bought broke when my son tried to assemble it, but we returned it and the replacement has been fine. This is NOT a “follow the instructions and it works perfectly” sort of toy. You have to tweak positions of pieces and muck around with it, but I think that’s the whole point. If your...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a great concept, and I got a couple to give as gifts after seeing good reviews on Target.com. Later I saw terrible reviews of this same product (purchased at Target) on a different retailer's website, so I decided to open one and try it out myself with my kids before giving. I would definite...see moreof the reviewer's review
