To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought these for my daughter when she was 2 and 1/4. She always liked baths but the first day playing with these she didn't want to get out. I had to drag her out after an hour in the tub and the water had gone cold. For the next week she ran to the bath tub every night to play with her toys. Eventually she did get bored with them, so I put them away for 3 months, then brought them back out. She was super excited to play with them again, and it was amazing to see how much her understanding of them had improved. She still didn't really get the gears but loved the different tubes. She just turned 3 and I got them out a third time and now she loves connecting the gears.
These aren't perfect. The tubes don't really connect into each other that well, so she really just plays with them individually figuring out how they work. The suction cups work so well she gets frustrated she can't unstick then. For the price we've got a lot of milage out of these. Make sure to have some little cups available to use to pour water with. Other reviews mentioned a mold problem. I've never had an issue with mold. I usually just leave them in the tub to dry after her bath, and put them away the next day. A five year old would probably be bored of these pretty quick. But for my 2 year old daughter they were perfect.
Several reviews say the same thing and my hopes for a differing experience have been dashed. I likely will need to return these because while I keep hoping for a different outcome, they simply don't stay stuck to the tub or to the tile wall above. The tub isn't anything fancy, just your run of the mill ceramic tub with the typical square tiles surrounding it. These won't stay stuck and when we tried to configure them for optimal spinning/water flow, they simply don't spin or the water flows at odd angles despite best efforts to align things to work. I'm an engineer so I should be able to figure this out, but haven't been. They look sturdy enough for bath play by a kid, but the functional result has left myself and my child wanting.
I LOVE the concept of this bath toy, and the whole thing isn't bad. My son loves the ones where a wheel spins when the water hits it- a lot of the other ones fall a bit short and don't stick to the tub very well. Once you pour water in them they slide down. I also have an issue with a few of the spinners coming off the tracks- and the gears are very hard to turn which makes it not work as it should. Good concept, but needs some work.
I had 3 pieces that wouldn't stay stuck to the tub or wall. Plus some of the wheels wouldn't turn. The plastic started to turn a cloudy color the first time I used it. It made the toy look dirty and grimy like it was well used. I couldn't get it to look clean again no matter how I tried to clean it. I guess it has something to do with my water. But I returned it and got my money back because it wasn't worth it.
Good enough but a little disappointed. The larger toys won't sit straight when suctioned so my kid has trouble pointing them to chain them together and some of the toys won't spin as they are supposed to so he gets disappointed. He pulls them off and just scoops water so I guess that works
I was really excited about this. It seems really sturdy and well made with great suction. I love the colors. Unfortunately my kids have not played with it as much as I thought. Not sure if it’s just really hard to line it all up to make the water flow or what, but they have lost interest after the initial excitement.
I wanted to love this. The peices come apart and go together as if you should be able to configure it in different ways, but they don't stay together. The spinners don't spin when water is poured on/through them from a cup. Overall it looks way cooler than it is. I'm very disappointed I picked this more expensive toy over some of the cheaper option.
My stepson absolutely loved these. It gives him a way to play with water the entire time in the bath as well as developing his puzzle solving skills by figuring out how to make the different pieces move when he pours the water in. They stick very well to the bathroom walls but I will warn that sometimes after a day or two one may fall off in the bathtub when it is empty and scares me to death. The thicker plastic stands up to a three year old.
