  5. Rating: 1 One Star by By A customer awful and not safe or good for a kid!
  6. Rating: 3 Three Stars by By A customer It was entertaining for a day or two. Haven't seen it since.
  7. Rating: 4 Great for STEAM/STEM Club!!! by By A customer Made these in STEAM Club. The only issue was keeping the can connected to the cable car.
  8. Rating: 1 Faulty Parts = Disappointed Nephew... by By A customer Got this for my 8-year old nephew since this type of thing is right up his alley. Unfortunately, however, one of the primary pieces in the box was manufactured incorrectly - not broken...just simply manufactured incorrectly, rendering the entire product useless. Now I have a disappointed nephew and a useless Tin Can Cable Car that I can't return. See pics and compare the instructions vs. the part.
  9. Rating: 4 my boys (4 and 2) love to do projects by By A customer my boys (4 and 2) love to do projects. this on hit the mark. Naturally we had to find the farthest two points and make our own string. the batteries don't last all that long but it is worth it to have a few extra sets!
  10. Rating: 5 a really fun model--even children might enjoy it! by By A customer I confess: I saw this kit on Amazon several months ago, and kept coming back to it, thinking it might be a cool gift for one or both nephews. I've liked construction toys and figuring out how things work for as long as I remember, so I eventually realized I was probably interested in this for myself first. I bought it, and I'm really happy with the purchase. Materials are good quality, assembly instructions are mostly easy to understand, and the whole project comes together pretty easily. (I can see how this would be a fun kit to work on with a child, mainly because the grown-up really wouldn't need to do much but coach.)Like other reviewers, I did away with the soda can. That's a cool nod to learning something with materials on-hand, but it still looks like a soda can. I tried my hand at a couple of paper-craft models of aerial trams, which was a lot more fun. The result is cooler, too, and it would be fun to think outside the box with a child, too. I attached a couple of photos of my amateur efforts at a paper model--it's supposed to resemble the Roosevelt Island tram here in NYC, at least a little.Like other reviewers, I'd like to have had more of the string used as the cable included, just to see how a longer span would work. Failing that, I'd like to know the specs of the string provided so I could order a workable substitute on my own.
