Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Downfall (Toy)
I owned this toy as a child and have fond memories of playing this with my sister for hours on end. I therefore decided to buy this for my own children and to say I am dissapointed is a huge understatement. Why, oh why, has someone redesigned something so great and turned it into something so terrible.
There is nothing wrong with the build quality. You will never be able to manufacture something that is designed so terribly. Counters do not drop by gravity. The wheels can only be turned extremely slowly or counters do not drop. Counters even pop out and fall to the floor when between wheels. Why do you need keys to turn wheels? What was wrong with the original knobs?
If you ever owned the original version, DO NOT buy this.
