I bought this along with Galt Toys Paper Planes
as a fun little gift for my dad's birthday. I was a bit worried after reading some of the reviews that said it didn't work but there were enough good reviews for me to take a chance on it.
The instructions for assembling the launcher were pretty poor. They instructed you to attach parts which were not included and left out instructions for important parts that were included. However, it's not that difficult to work it out yourself so my dad didn't have much trouble putting it all together.
At first we, like some other reviewers, thought that it didn't work at all as the planes would just get stuck in the spinners. There is also an unfortunate design flaw as there is a screw just in front of the plane which will stop it before it launches unless you angle the plane carefully to avoid it. However, all you need to do is adjust the gap between the spinners (which is easy to do, they are designed to be adjustable) and the planes fly through them as intended.
Overall, it was exactly what you'd expect, just a bit of fun which provided a couple of hours of entertainment. Once my dad had worked out how to use it, he had plenty of fun shooting planes at us! It's more of a novelty toy than anything. If you want to use different planes in it you have to adjust the spinners each time, which does get a little frustrating, so the fun wears off quickly.
