Horribly made product! My son was so excited ro play with this amd it didn't work. The parts are cheap plastic and they don't go together like they should in order for it to work correctly. Very disappointing!

Bought in store so I didn’t see the reviews. It was aweful. The light weight plastic made it extremely difficult to even get it set up perfectly so that it would work.

Doesn't work. So frustrating. Not designed well at all. The only redemption...my five year old says it's the best toy for hilarious laughs (because it never worked right).see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a terrible product. I bought it for my 8 year old son - he couldn't get it to work - everything falls over when you try to balance the hockey stick on the bowling pin. I tried too for quite a while and can't get it to balance either. We'll be returning this. It looked fun - but it wasn'tsee moreof the reviewer's review

Why didn't I trust the awful reviews? We purchased two Rube Goldberg kids. They were useless. They do not complete the task. And while I see the humor in a Rube Goldberg machine NOT working, the same should not be the case for a purchased toy. The fact that this toy made it to market shocks me.

Terrible product. Does not work at all. Leaves your child frustrated. I sat and tried to do it myself with no luck. Have two items by Goldberg and neither worked. Waste of money. Should not be allowed to sell products with such low reviews.

This toy quickly transformed my autistic 13 year old's excitement & anticipation into dejection & disappointment. Sad, because it could have been a great toy if only the pieces were made better. Perhaps if the ball, wheel, & pins were more solid, and if the rails & poles were sturdier, less flexible...see moreof the reviewer's review

The concept is cool, but delivery falls short . It's super frustrating after tinkering time and time again, over and over again , and it still doesn't work. Everything has to be PERFECT or it WILL NOT work. There is no way a child can do this on their own and actually enjoy themselves. We still have...see moreof the reviewer's review
