Comments about Product: My daughter is 7.5 years old and this was an instant hit this Christmas. The toy itself is a simple idea (two wooden wheels, attachment pieces, clamps, 2 baskets, & string) but has already provided lots of entertainment. We are considering a second one for added fun. The string provided is super long and can really run across any room. We purchased this along with the Holiday Mini Fairies, which fit in the baskets perfectly. At one point, my daughter & a friend visiting sat across the room from each other passing notes in the baskets. This is a well-made toy that is easy to put up and take down. It is fun for indoors or outdoors (although I wouldn't leave it outside), and is great for imaginative play.
