My 6yr old autistic son loves this toy. It kept him entertained for over an hour. He gets so excited watching the coins spin. Wish there was a bigger one so the spin can be a little longer but would definitely recommend it.

The Vortx combined with magnetic chips and magnets has become the most requested activity in my speech therapy sessions. They earn chips for attempts and then get to use the vortx and magnets. They use up the chips and we start all over again! I bought one for graduate student who just finished his masters and he was so excited! I was so happy to find it here on your website (better than Amazon, FYI).

I knew this was going to be a hit since my kids always want to do the penny vortices at the mall. The kids in my daughter's Kindgergarten love this. They roll marbles, coins, etc. on it. It is a simple and neat way to observe physical forces on a beginner level.
