I have a brother who has downsyndrome and he likes to shake paper which has the similarity of this toy. It is something he likes to do with his hands, so I figured that this could take the place of his paper shaking. I liked it for him because eventhough he is mentally disabled he was able to use it with ease. The only problem is the magnetic wheel tends to fall out of place and has to be reseated on the rail. All in all it served its purpose for my brother, it is a great toy for the disabled as well as an over active child (ex. Autistic, ADHD,ADD etc.)

This toy was the hit of Christmas. More so than other more expensive gifts under the tree. All three of my children (two 12-year-olds and a 17-year-old) were fighting over who got to play with this. It's nice to know that the simple toys are still appealing. My only frustration is that the lights stay on whenever it's attached to the metal frame and now are burned out. Will have to figure out if I can replace. But toy still works, just without the light show.
Also, was thrilled to be able to find something like this on Amazon - couldn't imagine trying to find in a store. Like a needle in a haystack.

The rotating wheel has a LED light inside, which lights when the wheel touches the metal rails. It is good, as it makes the rotation more funny looking and interesting for the kids, but at the same time it means that the batteries will discharge if you just leave it somewhere with both magnets touching the rails. It will just glow in wain.

The wheel is also very light - much lighter than I expected, which means that it does not gather much momentum, and so does not look as magic as some other models. It moves quick and light, there and back; you can't really feel that it travels back on it's own, despite the gravity, in a strange way, as it happens with more heavy, more quickly-rotating, and slow-moving wheels. Nevertheless, it works.

The biggest problem of the toy though is with the plastic thing in the handle that holds two rails together and parallel. On the 2nd day it break off, and although I glued it twice already, still kids manage to tear it apart regularly.

We dote on our grandchildren-especially at Christmas. Growing up poor in WV and being of that certain age, I remember what enjoyment we got from simple toys.
So,upon seeing this, I hoped my grand-daughter, who loves science,might like it.
After all the presents were opened,and things had calmed down, there was my grand-daughter at every turn, playing with this. Wonderful !

I bought this for my 3 year old son, who couldn't stop playing with this toy at a friend's house. The charm wore off quickly, but he still occasionally finds this amusing. I agree with other posters that it's annoying that the light stays on when the wheel is attached. Also, the plastic clip comes off easily, but is also easily snapped back into place.

I bought this for my 3 year old daughter. It reminded me of the toys I had handed down to my as a child. She really likes it except it jumps the track quite a bit and doesn't stay on. They metal sides seem bent but no matter how much we tweek it we can't fix it. The one I had when I was little RARELY fell off, it was made much better than this one.

I use this in my profession - working with children who have autism, this is a great momentary distraction and reinforcer if using Applied Behavior Analysis. Kiddos with autism love things that light up and move, and this fits the bill. Oh, and my cat enjoys it, too!

I loved this toy as a child and thought a light would be a great addition. However out of the package the twirler was not able to properly stay on the track. After a few seconds the twirler became crooked and was not be able to move on the track. Frustrating for adults. I would recommend finding a similar but better quality spinner.
