Cheap and disappointing
Posted 8/21/2012
Rating: 1

This is a cheaply made product that disappointed everyone. I saw this product and ordered five so I could give them away to my son's friends on their birthdays. My son got his for our block party and it just doesn't work. It is poorly made and the lines are not clear and straight they jump like dots and you can only put one piece of chalk in at a time. Also the chalk runs out pretty quickly. We were so excited about this clever toy and it is just disappointing.
We assisted our customer. First, select a flat, smooth surface for Chalktrail. Lowering and tightening the chalk will likely reduce the jumping of chalk lines. If any product fails to draw out enthusiasm, chalk up a better experience with a visit our Returns & Exchanges center.

Deceptive packaging - wouldn't buy again

I purchased this product for my 6-year old daughter's birthday. She recently learned to ride a bike, and loves sidewalk chalk, so this seemed the perfect combination of positive reinforcement and interest. The picture on the site and on the box shows the rear wheel of a bike and multiple lines of chalk, leading me to believe that the holder held multiple colors of chalk. The suggestion from the pictures is that after slapping this on a bike, you have a near-instant chalk rainbow trail. The reality is that the holder accommodates only one piece of chalk at at time. The only thing this will do is to make a single line of single-color chalk behind your kids' bike. That is, unless the ride the exact same path four times and have the bike skills of a young (and presumptively pre-steroid) Lance Armstrong. BORING. Admittedly, I didn't read much of the description. I saw the picture, and purchased wholly on that...
Look closely at the image, and you'll see, a single piece of chalk is held by Chalktrail. Chalktrail builds motor coordination and visual spatial abilities by challenging kids to retrace their path for a Spirograph-like effect. When they smile over success, ahhh... Now that is beautiful! We contacted our customer to assist.
