This broke almost immediately.

It was also very easy for him to put together by himself.

It was too heavy to hover when assembled.

Pretty awesome toy. I put it together in a few minutes. You can crash it into the wall and it will be alright. The only thing is, is you have to operate it on a hard flat surface, like wood or tile.

I was a little surprised how the cardboard box could hide the little mystery toy. With about 20 minutes of patient assembly, instant hover craft! Lots of fun. Watch out for the blade with the kids. This hovercraft does exactly what it's supposed to do. Worth the money. Good times!

This is a really fun toy. Who doesn't love a hover craft? Good project and educational at the same time. I recommend it.

I bought this for my 10-year old son (he has a fascination with hoover crafts) for a father-and-son project. The hoover craft assembled easily, and really hoovered nicely. It doesn't allow any steering, so it only goes in a straight line, but it comes with a pretty strong electric motor, and the hoovering effect is really cool. My son enjoyed it, and so did I. The only problem now is, he wants me to build a larger one for him to ride on!

I bought this kit for my 10-year old's Science project and it was a BIG hit! All of the parts were sturdy. You must read the instructions carefully and understand exactly where the tape should be applied so everything holds together as it should. Occasionally the tape would loosen underneath where the air would flow but I added more double-sided tape from the kit to hold it in place and used a stapler too. Use new batteries and watch it glide with speed! We love it!

My daughter saved up her allowance and decided she wanted to buy this. I agreed to help her put it together. It works great! We've had two issues so far:
(1) I inserted one of the batteries backwards. This was an easy fix and the manual even suggests it as a possibility when trouble-shooting. Well worth checking if yours doesn't work at all. I couldn't believe I'd done it and almost didn't check.
(2) If the batteries are not fully seated, if one slightly pops up, you'll still get enough power to spin the propeller and partially inflate the skirt but not enough to really make it go. The fix? Be sure the batteries are fully seated and install the battery cover lid with the flat side down. The instructions didn't really say and the flat side seemed more "finished" so I initially installed it with that side up. After a few minutes of play, I could hear that the motor wasn't spinning as fast; after a few more minutes I could see that it was barely inflating. I couldn't believe that the batteries had run out so fast but I decided to replace them. Once I got the battery cover lid off, I could see that two of the batteries were not completely seated anymore. I pushed them back down, flipped the cover over so it would push down on them to hold them down, and turned it back on. It fully inflated and was faster than ever before.
My little girl loves it. Best allowance money she has spent yet!

Let me start by saying that this is not a toy per se. This is not something your child will pick up again and again. This is more like a lego where the fun in in putting it together and seeing it in action.
