Product Description

GYMSPIN A ROTATIONAL DREAM Much like the dizzy disc, the Gymspin has a larger oblong base (26"W x 24" L) that spins freely on an angle. Gymspin accomodates other positioning devices like feeder seats or angle cushions also available on our site. This product is ideal for all children or adults up to 125lbs. Perfect for the child who needs a little larger seating surface than offered by the dizzy disc. Also works great in combination with the dizzy disc for the days where a more calm approach is required. Please take advantage of our special pricing on this unit while it last. On a therapeutic level, the Gymspin is a balance training device designed for use with children with balance or neurological disabilities. This three-dimensional toy features a spinning top disc that allows children to lie down, sit, kneel, or stand while spinning to improve balance and coordination.

I bought this for my five year old autistic son. He used it just a few times before it broke, the whole top part snapped off, it looked as though it was just spot welded on. It is an expensive but poor quality item, and I am disgusted by the way I was treated by the Sensory University! When I told them what happened, they emailed back to say they were sending out a replacement. They never did, nor did they answer a single one of my emails after this. I have requested a refund, but they won't answer any of my emails. Disgusting scam artists ripping off disabled children! I will never buy anything from them again. Very disappointed!

I bought this gymspin for my autistic son. We got for his 3rd birthday, (feb 2013)
He is always running about and spinning in circles and genrally really active. He doesnt play with "normal" toys so we wanted to find something that really appealed to him.
We searched for spinning toys and came accross this. We decided to go for it and buy it. I can safely say it has been worth every penny. My son absolutely loves it. And as the weight limit is so high i know he'll be using this for years. Its sturdy and robust. My boy is not gentle and bumps himself down on it, and it takes it all. He siesnt feel the effect of dizzyness so he can spin for ages. It has a fairly large seating area so will fit a ten yr old nicely, it will spin alone if you sit on it in the right position and just gently shift your weight. The bottom is weighted so it doesnt travel accross the floor, although i would reccommend its better on carpet or grass as hard floor are generally slippier. Obviously its not to be used standing up!!!! We've has this 18months now and it is still as used and loved. Its sun faded but thats what happens when u have it outside, its not affected the use.
It took a couple of weeks to arrive but as its from america its understandable.
A great sensory product.

Great fun but broke after 3 months! 17 Sept. 2012
By C. L. Cecil - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This was a fantastic spinning toy for my 6 year old autistic son. He's 50-60lbs, so well within the weight guidelines. He would spin so fast and it brought him so much joy!

After 3 months of daily use, it broke. The plastic in the base that the shaft goes through split, and would therefore no longer keep the washers and bearings secure, so when he'd sit on it, the top would be sitting directly on the base and would not spin. Those of you with autistic children can understand, when your child gets used to a particular activity in their daily routine and then have it break, it's a disaster! Meltdown city and impossible to communicate to my nonverbal child that it is broken.

The manufacturer of this product is a private source and you can NOT contact them directly. The representative of Sensory University (the seller) could offer me no recourse as the manufacturer only guarantees the product for 30 days! Just 30 days!!!

I had to reorder another one, which at $129 + shipping is not cheap! Especially if I am going to have to replace it every 3 months!

I would urge the manufacturer of this product to change the base of this spin disc as well as the way the base attaches to the seat--make it all metal plate and shaft, so plastic splitting is not an issue. Additionally, I would urge them to increase their warranty time and have the ability to be contacted by consumers! I'm really disappointed.

We loved this disc, which is the ONLY reason I am hesitantly purchasing another one. I hope the next one lasts a little longer.

Broken after 6 weeks and no option for return or replacement 3 Sept. 2014
By Nicola - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We bought a Spin Disc for our autistic 10-year son from one of Amazon.com's sellers, The Sensory University. We paid $120. We had this item for less than 6 weeks when it came apart - top from bottom. The mechanism inside has broken and caused the bottom of the unit to cave in.

The Sensory University replied to my message to say that they can not help me because I did not return the item within 30 days (we were 10 days past their 30-day period). Obviously, I did not return this item before 30 days because it did not break during that period.

Do they think that its acceptable for an item that they sell to break just after the 30-day period?

Amazon's A-Z Guarantee department said that they can not help for the same reason.

How can this be acceptable customer service from both Amazon and the Sensory University?

A wonderful product! 29 Dec. 2008
By L. Lankford - Published on Amazon.com
This toy is a must for children with sensory and balance issues. The sitting area is large and it is easy for children to sit comfortably with their legs folded. I bought it for my 8 year old who weighs 54 lbs. My 10 year old son who weighs about 75 lbs can sit with plenty of extra room. Once you start spinning, the toy keeps the momentum going. If you try to spin it too fast a child can fall off since it is on an angle, but you have to spin very fast and be a little dizzy for that to happen. It is very sturdy and I cannot find a single thing wrong with the craftsmanship of this product.

Awesome (!!) for exactly two months. 27 Aug. 2014
By Andrea - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm shocked this gets great reviews. It did work wonderfully for exactly two months, almost to the day. Our daughter spinned on it daily for about 30 mins per day.

Then one day, it just stopped working. We flipped it over and it was plastic on plastic worn away.

I contacted customer service and received this reply:

"Unfortunately the 30 day defective claim period has expired on this order. We do apologize for this inconvenience however we are required to abide by our posted return / exchange policy."

Wow. $99 for two months. NOT a good value.

Spins easily but a little bigger than I thought 2 Dec. 2012
By Jajons - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I really do love this spin disc. I am a traveling therapist so it is a little bigger and heavier than I would like for moving between locations. However, it spins very smoothly and the size makes it possible for the kids to be in many different positions and to easily propel themselves. I highly recommend it for quality!
