5.0 out of 5 stars fun toy 26 Dec 2009
By Dr Phibes VINE VOICE

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Too difficult for my 8 year old to make, but only took Dad 10 minutes and was ready to use. Made a good stocking filler, very small have a close look at the picture, but ideal for an 8 year old and wont take up much room. The idea is to try to move along the wire without touching it or it will buzz. Good value.

3.0 out of 5 stars buzz wire 30 Dec 2009
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The instructions aren't very clear and adult help is required for younger children. Overall though good, once you've had the patience to put it together, perhaps more suitable for older children.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scientifically stupid! 26 Dec 2012

Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
If part of the fun was supposed to be assembling this then I think I missed it. The lengths of wire which you have to join everything together are pushed into a metal ring which then pushes into a hole and a plastic pin into that. I think I still have marks on my thumb trying to push that pin into the hole once the kids gave up. Then you make the flimsy wire into the shape you need and 'wrap' the end of the insulated wire to the end of this. This then goes into a hole held in place by a pin at each end. This was far too loose, constantly popping out and flying across the room. It was at this point I was looking around for the 'Wand' used to negotiate the wire. It turns out you have to cut a length off this flimsy wire and shape a loop on the end to make up the wand!! After seeing the disappointing child's face and hearing the rubbish buzzer sound my frustration with this thing ended with me introducing it to the bin! Good riddance.

This product is tiny and not worth the money, far too much hassle with the complete self assembly and poor instructions. Would not recommend.

I bought this toy for my grandson and could not connect the wires. I asked my brother who is an electrician who said it cannot be put together because parts of it were broken and there are bits missing. I am very disappointed, if worked I know my grandson would have loved to give it a try. Would have been much better if already put together and working.

Couldn't construct this to work even with dad who is a builder! Buzzer did not work. Flimsy and frustrating. Christmas present ordered 22nd october so no refund. Money wasted.
