Customer Reviews

A great rainy day project!
Kindle Customer
The problem is that the clay just moves around on the wheel and you can't really form a pot.
Parent of Newborn
The motor is way to small for what the product is intended to do!

Ignore the negative reviews on the web about this product. If you have an ounce of common sense and just a little bit of knowledge about how a pottery wheel works, you will love this one. Yes, its a toy and the motor is weak but its just right for small hands and small projects. We got this out of the box on Christmas day because my 8 year old couldn't wait to try it. Within 10 minutes she had made a beautiful little pot with very little help from me. She loved it and was not at all frustrated by the process. We put a plastic cloth over the kitchen table and even clean up was easy. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

You have to keep it small. We started with a tennis ball size ball of clay. It was very easy to keep centered without the centering tool. We just plopped it down and started by gently working a hole in the middle as the wheel turned.

Keep your hands wet. The clay should slip not stick. Be aware, however, that keeping it wet also made the ball of clay slip on the surface of the wheel at first. We had to pick up the clay and wipe off the wheel and bottom of the clay with a paper towel a few times as we worked until it began to stick to the surface of the wheel a little better.

Stop the wheel often to re-center or pinch the sides to even them up as you work. Its supposed to be fun and mistakes are easily corrected with some water on your finger to smooth it out.

Keep your expectations reasonable. If no one in your family has ever worked with clay or seen a pottery wheel you might need to start with an art class at a local studio before you try this on your own, even with this toy version.

I got this for my five year old daughter. She had been asking for one, and I was able to get it for a fraction of the price thanks to a sale and a coupon. The reviews were disappointing, but we gave it a chance anyway. I was pleasantly surprised! We have used it several times and really enjoyed it. My daughter rates it five stars. My only complaint is that the cord on the foot pedal is not long enough to actually reach the floor. We have been using it as a hand pedal instead, which has worked fine. I do agree with one of the other reviews that the tool arm is difficult to use. I have found it easier just to use the knife manually for shaping. Also, I found that using a spray bottle to keep the clay wet while you are working made all the difference. The directions do not stress that enough.

The other positive reviews here are accurate. My 6 year-old received this for Christmas and, with my help, was able to create her own little pots.

Here are some things to keep in mind:
- use water, in fact, have a little dish of water nearby to keep your sponge in. This clay seems to almost suck it up and it needs the water to be slippery enough to form.
- help your child learn that the clay needs to spin WITH the plate, they may not instinctively understand this. It takes less pressure than they think.
- this is not best suited for the dining room table unless your child wants to stand. For easier positioning use a low table, like a coffee table, then your child can sit on a chair.
- ditch the green clay centering tool and the hole digger thing. They don't work well or help.
- give your clay a good throw onto the center of the wheel. It's hard to make it stick well to the plate which is why I only gave it a 4 star review. Otherwise we love it!

Watch a couple of videos online to help you and your child get a visual for how to throw a pot. With some background you should experience some success.

Bought this for my 10 yr old daughter last year for Christmas and she still uses it. I ask her often if she needs help and her answer us, "I got it".

My 7-year old received this as a birthday present from a friend. I was dubious as to how a plastic, battery powered pottery wheel would stand up. Both my daughter and I were pleasantly surprised.

We first tried the bowl centering and shaping tools that it came with and they clay right out of the package. We found that the clay was too dry to work properly. What we did was add water to the clay and we kneaded it until it was a lot softer. To do this you just dip you hands in water so they are wet and then knead the clay. If it is still too stiff to mold easily with your fingers, get your hand wet again and knead a bit more. Do not dip the clay in the water or pour water on the clay. :) If you've never worked with clay before it may take some trial and error. If you get it too wet, let it dry a bit, re-knead and try again. Wet hands are ESSENTIAL! And you need to re-wet them as you work the clay whenever the clay starts to stick to your skin.

After we were happy with the clay texture, we just threw the clay ball on the wheel, like a good potter should, and ignored the shaping tools. Again, you have to have wet hands. If the clay doesn't slide past your hands and the wheel turns they (or the clay) is too dry. Dip your hands in a bowl of water and try again. The motor will slow down and stop if you press too hard, but honestly, it's powered by 4-C cell batteries and is essentially a toy. You can't work it like a real potters wheel with a real motor, but if you are gentle, get the clay is nice and soft, and you are patient, it works just fine.

We made a pretty little pot that wasn't perfectly round, has one side higher then the other and a thick bottom--my daughter thinks it is perfect and so do I. Great introduction into making thrown pottery!
