        No Good

        By The Tester

        from Albany, NY

        Comments about Poof Slinky Inc. Slinky Science Tornado Maker Kit:

        My son had one of these for about one week before it completely stopped working. We got him a second one and that one worked for about two weeks before it broke. Piece of junk, do not buy.

        Comments about Poof Slinky Inc. Slinky Science Tornado Maker Kit:

        I bought this tornado maker for my eight year old son for Christmas. He is obsessed with tornadoes and was extremely excited when he received it. On Christmas day we filled it up with water and he got to enjoy it for about an hour before it started making a loud grinding noise, and then completely stopped working. I called customer service and they promptly sent out another one and I returned the faulty product.

        We received the 2nd tornado maker on the 28th. It worked for exactly 3 days, then started making the exact same grinding noise and now does not work at all. Sending this one back and getting my money back. I would NOT recommend this product to ANYONE!!

        Comments about Poof Slinky Inc. Slinky Science Tornado Maker Kit:

        According to my son, this was his favorite christmas present on that wonderful morning. However, the motor wouldn't turn on it's own, without sticking a pencil down in the water and getting it kick started. I did this for a while until that did not work. So I tore apart an old RC Truck that was in the parts bin, removed its motor, which happened to have the same size output shaft, but was a much more powerful motor. With a Dremel, hot glue and solder I replace the motor. Now, my 5 year old loves it. Why couldn't the company do this?

          Comments about Poof Slinky Inc. Slinky Science Tornado Maker Kit:

          My 6 yr old son LOVES anything that has to do with "twisters". When he opened this Christmas morning he was so excited. The tornados were pretty cool but then it started leaking from the bottom. He is very upset that this cool toy is "broken".
