Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Cheap to purchase and you can use it to make other models.
Bad points:
The air tower design itself is unstable; it doesn't sit vertically, which means it doesn't work properly. The balls get stuck half way up or launch themselves off the model. This is very disapointing as previous Knex models I purchased have worked well.

Paul, Lancing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Booklet very good at describing what to build. Kept the kids busy and interested for a long time - fantastic!
Bad points:
Once built, not easy to move, so make sure you have room to play with it or the kids won't get much time to play with it. Also sags over time due to the combined weight, so constant tinkering is required - although I don't nescessarily think this is a bad thing as it teaches kids how adjustments are required to keep things running smoothly.

My 10-year old son really wanted this toy and it absorbed him for a whole day. It's been a permanent fixture in his room ever since.
Bad points:
It needs regular adjustments to make sure the balls end up where they are supposed to !
