Product Description

With a look that encourages interaction, and game play that's action packed, SwingyThing makes the perfect addition to any toy shelf. It's incredible fun for kids of all ages, and it can be challenging enough to captivate adults as well. Once you pick it up, it will be tough to put back down because the pieces start twirling around immediately. There are six pendulums in all, and each rotates easily, and independently from the others. You can spin them in either direction, and you can even get two pieces to spin in opposite directions at the same time. A simple movement will begin the game, but incredible concentration, and ample practice will be required to win it. The set includes a metal stand to display the toy, and a color poster that provides as many as 98 challenges to master. It's designed for children 6 and up, but people of all ages will find it addicting and enjoyable.

Take it with you on your next road trip, stick one on your desk at work, pack it to kill time in a waiting room, or keep one around the house for independent play that doesn't involve screens or batteries. Top quality materials ensure that it will last for years, and simple operation ensures that anyone can use it. Because it requires focus it helps children improve concentration, and because the brain is forced to work in tandem with fidgety fingers, it also helps to improve hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. As relaxing as it is fun, this unique toy also helps to reduce stress because it's hard to not have fun while holding it. A toy, a game and a conversation piece all in one, this thing will be a hit no matter where it ends up.

How To Use It

Just looking at it makes you want to pick it up, and once in hand, the pieces begin to twirl and sway instantly. Essentially there are two types of spinning parts; flippers and dippers. You'll find three flippers at the center, and three dippers surrounding them. With practice, anyone can learn to isolate movement in order to pinpoint certain flippers and dippers. Spin them around just to watch them move, or work through specific challenges to move certain pieces while others remain stationary.
  1. To play, hold with two hands. One on each side, gripping the metal rod.
  2. To get the flippers spinning, move the toy in an up and down motion.
  3. To get the dippers spinning, move the toy in a back and forth motion.
  4. Use the included poster to master 52 different challenges. After finishing the main 52, go back to the ones with a slam and try to spin pieces in opposite directions for up to 98 different challenges.

Have not really liked it
I "get the idea" but I have no motivation or desire to play with it. It just does not appeal to me. Having said that, I think some people will like it, and to is well made.
