The problem with this toy is that it isn't a good crane toy. I will try to describe the issue, but it is hard to explain. The claw will only pick up balls in a very specific area in the container and the lever/claw combo only picks up a ball once every 4 tries, even if you have it in the right position. The crane mechanism often gets stuck and won't descend all the way. I was disappointed by this, but my son solved the problem by taking the top off the toy and pushing down on the crane thing with his hand in order to pick up the balls. I thought this would get old quickly, but he actually enjoyed doing this during the entire trip and got upset when we told him he could not take the toy out of the hotel room (for fear that he would lose all the balls).
Anyway, this is not a good crane toy, but in my experience, it was still fun. Since we travel a lot, I have a box of around 10 "travel" toys that I save for our trips. This has definitely made it into that box.
When we took this out of the package, I was still expecting it to not work like it should. In addition to the squinkies it came with, we added more that my son got for Christmas. He just turned 7 this month and had it figured out quickly. It took maybe 5 minutes for my 2.5 year old to figure it out, but she got it as well.
The crane works 9 times out of 10 for us. Every so often the hand won't grab a squinkie, but it will on the next try. Both of my kids love it, and think it's 'so cool' that they have their own crane machine since they love to try the ones in grocery stores and arcades.
I got this for significantly less than the original cost and probably would not have bought it otherwise. With that said, now knowing how much my kids enjoy it, I'd recommend it even at full price.

I got this for my nephews as a Christmas gift. They seemed to like it, but haven't really gotten back with the parents on it.Published on June 5, 2014 by Sassy
This was a huge waste of money. I should have sent out back. I would have if my kid didn't completely butcher the box. Not nearly as big as it looks. Read morePublished on January 30, 2014 by l. Keller

Bought this for my 4 y/o son for Chrisymas... His sister has many squinkies and it is hard to find boyish ones. The claw machine is awesome! Easy to operate, fun and original!Published on December 26, 2013 by Julie
