This review is from: Playskool Classic Sit - N - Spin (Toy)
This is the first review I've ever written on Amazon. I guess I've been fortunate enough to never before have seen a product quite so bad as this.
Just put this together for my 2 1/2 year old. He seemed pretty psyched about it as we were putting it together, but this is not the same as the original Sit & Spins at all. It's cheaply made, and doesn't spin properly, regardless of the surface we tried. I recall that the original was made of a hard plastic, and ran on steel ball bearings. This product uses a softer plastic, and doesn't have any ball bearings. When he tries to turn the handle, it simply flexes and bends instead of turning the seat. I'm not sure what Playskool was thinking when they put this design into production. It is going back in the box, and back to the retailer.
Don't waste your time or money.
