I purchased this for my 8 year old grandson who loved it. It was not only fun but he learned basic scientific principles from woking with it.

Horrible product that doesn't work

Comments about Thames & Kosmos Gyroscopes and Flywheels:

Nice concept but the instructions were hard to follow (I'm a mechanical engineer so I deal with drawings, schematics and such quite a bit). I bought this for my 10 year old thinking he would enjoy it but he quickly lost interest because the instructions were not clear. Worse yet, the pieces didn't fit together very well - nothing like Lego pieces. My husband ended up forcing some pieces together and then prying them apart. This product is rated for kids ages 8 an up. I can't imagine the kids having enough strength to easily assemble and unassemble this. We ended returning this product. Save your money and time- NOT WORTH IT!!

Kids lost interest

Comments about Thames & Kosmos Gyroscopes and Flywheels:

My seven year old enjoyed building the "bots" but soon lost interest because they didn't go or ride on the track. They would just fall over. We returned it.
