It comes apart which makes it easy to store and it is very easy to get back together.

It's a great teaching tool for the beginner and until you start needing precise measurements in your kid's coursework, this is a good balance to begin with.

The bucket balance scale is great for my kids learning "what is heavier or lighter" My kids are 5, 3, (& 2 although he doesn't use it that often).

This Bucket Balance is an excellent value. It has held up very well in the many months we've used it and is very well priced for the quality. Bucket balances are typically pricey. I'm very pleased with this purchase!

Great, works really well, is actually quite sensitive in terms of detecting differences in weight. It comes apart which makes it easy to store and it is very easy to get back together.

I bought this to introduce the idea of weight and balance to my preschooler. It doesn't take much to tip the scales of this balance as it's actually fairly sensitive. I've used it with the counting bears and just one bear will make it tip completely in one direction. The buckets are marked with 100, 200, 300, and 400 ml with 50 ml tick mark graduations. The lids snap on, but not very securely. The containers lift off the balance very easily as only gravity is keeping them on. It will need some adjusting of the calibration weights, located on the arms, once you get it out of the box and I've been able to get it fairly close to center. It's a great teaching tool for the beginner and until you start needing precise measurements in your kid's coursework, this is a good balance to begin with.

This scale is a good learning aid for young kids. It does not measure precisely, so if you're looking for something accurate you'll have to spend a little more. However, it's a good tool for kids. I found it useful.

My 4 year old enjoys balancing almost anything with this bucket....however, the lids fit a bit too loosely. It doesn't affect how the bucket is used but if we want to use a liquid, there is a higher chance that it will spill. The drawer pulls out nice and smooth and is a decent size to hold anything a 4 year old may want to place in it.

I am a high school math teacher. I thought this would be a good something to model algebraic equations for my algebra students. It did the job, but it's really kind of small for this purpose. On the plus-side, it's small enough that I can carry it around really easily and set it up on a student's desk if I'm working with just one student.

It's also fairly precise--enough to distinguish differences within 1-1.5 grams.

The booklet that comes with it recommends using the lids for the buckets as "plates" on top of which you can balance things, but the space is really, really limited as you can only place weights along the fulcrum of each bucket, which gives you about a 1 in x 3 in rectangle to play around with. Still, it does the job.

Great item, sturdier than our other hanging scale that broke. Buckets allow for more things to be compared. Two thumbs up!
