    Pretty good

    This is a fun product and was a great addition to our homeschool. Who knew two soda bottles could be so much fun? I would have given it 5 stars but for the fact that upon my first two attempts at using it water leaked out. This was made worse by the fact that we adding ample blue food coloring to our water. You have to get the bottles attached to the Tornado Tube perfectly for it to not leak. Once I got it just right no more leaking. It has survived a 2 year old and 5 year old. Again, you have to have it attached absolutely perfectly for it not to leak. The third try was a charm for us.

    Tornado Tubes
    Posted 11/4/2012 by Regina Hatcher

    Stocking Stuffer for Xmas, not given yet. Although I shook it to see how it worked. I found it simple and interesting. After a few times with it, I think my grandchild will put it down and play with it infrequently.

    I ordered this to use in my classroom with 1st and 2nd graders. They LOVED it, and have since asked me nearly each morning to make the tornado again. It's great!
