3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept, poor manufacturing 9 Feb 2008

We bought this toy as a return gift for 7-8 year olds. After the party was over, we decided to assemble this ourselves. The boys had a lot of fun making the electromagnet, but assembling the bell turned out to be too difficult for them.

The manufacturing is of a poor quality and the final piece doesn't align well with the rest of the pieces and we had to hold it in place whenever we wanted to ring the bell. Overall, it was a fun exercise and raised some interesting questions in the children's minds. But it could have been much better.
1.0 out of 5 stars Our Cub Scout den tried to get this to work for 2 hours...Nothing! 28 Feb 2014
By Gary Bridgman - Published on Amazon.com
The first milestone in the instructions is winding the electromagnet and testing it with a battery. Our scouts (4th and 5th graders) couldn't get past this step, even with three adults helping out.
Does. Not. Work.
2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - cheaply made - not for kids 31 Jan 2014
By Stephen F. Midlock - Published on Amazon.com

The parts are so cheaply made that they don't fit right, don't align for an electromagnetic field and only work if they're soldered by an adult. The buzzer doesn't work at all. Don't waste your money.
1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time - Pray your kid still likes science afterwards 21 Jan 2013

Yet another science-type toy that I hope doesn't turn my son off to science or engineering. There is no way that anyone actually attempted this before they marketed it and stamped the slinky name on it. At least a slinky goes down three steps before it turns sideways and rolls down the rest of the way. We tried a few of the setups on this pathetic excuse for fun, and NOTHING WORKED!!!! We spent multiple attempts winding the cursed copper wire into an electromagnet, and neither time was successful. The plastic pieces DO NOT FIT, and have those plastic burrs and flanges that you always wonder if you're supposed to trim off, or leave them.

Looks like they have 8 left in stock right now, and I hope they let those 8 rot in their warehouse. Please don't reduce their inventory, for your kids' sake, and for the sake of our countries science and engineering future.
3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to build 4 Oct 2010

This is a nice idea for a lesson in electronics and how to build a circuit, but the wires are too thin and fragile for a child to work with. The insulation is clear, so it it difficult to tell when enough insulation has been removed to make connections. The Electromagnet worked, but the rest did not, even after taking everything apart and retrying twice.
