My son was thrilled to receive it and we enjoyed reading the information on the back. Then came creating the actual tornado. When it arrived it had plenty of the foamy bubbles to create some impressive little tornadoes. Of course, you have to "swirl" it to get the tornado effect (because they are rotating columns of air, as my little tornado expert would point out). It's very easy to master the technique, and my son was creating his own tornadoes in no time. My son also found out that in addition to being able to create tornadoes with this, you can also create hurricanes by doing a shaking and swirling combination lol. After the first day, when he slept with it safely placed on his headboard, we noticed the next morning that the foam had settled a good bit. Turns out all you have to do is shake it and they come right back, so it looks like after having it for 9 days now that there isn't a danger of the foam disappearing permanently. I'll update if it does, but so far as good. For the price this really is a neat gift to a child, especially to one who loves natural disasters.
If you think this thing will constantly make "tornadoes" without any effort on your part, you are sadly mistaken.
This toy has been around for decades. Yes, it's just a tube of water, glitter and a bit of soap, but that's how it's always been.
I had one of these as a kid (and picked it back up here for nostalgia sake). You would often see these right next to sheets of liquid crystal and mood rings in any Science Center or Museum Gift Shop.
If you want to see an easy "tornado", you can grab a battery-powered mixer glass for dirt cheap and use that, or simply your home blender. Another option is the little "Tornado Tube" you use with 2x two liter bottles. Those were fun, but bulky.
This particular brand is well made and the scenery adds a nice touch. It's a bit tough for my son to create a proper tornado since it takes twisting of the wrist as you shake it. He creates more of a dust-up or a hurricane with his. But with practice he's beginning to get better.
Another nice touch to this toy are the tornado statistics found on the back. They explain and describe each strength of tornado and the kind of damage it can do.
People keep saying we could have made our own with empty soda bottles but I wanted something that would withstand a 5 yr old accidentally dropping it and such. Also, as I stated before, the scenery on this toy is a cute touch that I couldn't have done with an old 2-liter soda bottle.
For the price it's worth the convenience of not having to make my own. We could also make our own clothes too but most of us prefer to go to the store and buy some already made. Our money, our decision.
