Rated 4 out of 5 by from Misunderstood features of product This is a well made product, however it was not what I was expecting. My granddaughter does enjoy playing with these, but for some reason I thought it would balance out if you put the different colors but equal numbers. Say one number 5 on one side and a 2 and 3 on the other side. But that is my misunderstanding not the company's.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this item. This product , like all the other companies, has failed to make this an exacting balancing toy. My son in-law has had to sand this to a working balance. Why is it so difficult? If using as a teaching tool, this product is a failure, and disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes I would buy again! My 3 yr old great nephew was the recipient & showed interest in this toy. While it was one of a few Christmas gifts he recieved, I really don't know yet his full interest when he got home--showed promise tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids Really Enjoyed! I bought this to use in a Preschool I work at. The kids love it and I laminated the card that shows different ways the balance can be used. I keep it at a table and the kids use it freely during center time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm buying another to have in my classroom This is a wonderful tool for children to use independently or with a friend. Helps judgement & cause & effect. Lots of fun!
