kids pottery wheel
from BeaverDam Wisconsin
Comments about Alex Deluxe Pottery Wheel:
this wheel for starters works well for 9 & 10 yr. olds. It could use a little more speed from child's usage point of view, these girls r familiar with the real Adult Wheel, and are vey delighted as to it's performance as beginners would be.Suggested ideas to make clay stick in the middle were to try dysen the rubber material like liner bought from dollar store in a row. Can cut to any size,or use old material for platform grip.This wheel is great for starters and a joy to creative minds. A High Mark of Art from my Girls! Yes this is a good start and would recommend it to buyers! Sorry I cannot compare to other products on this object.This was a deal to Me!Price was very Fair!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cute, fun, and engaging
My 9 year old daughter got this for Christmas this year as she loves to work with clay. She'd had a few classes on how to use a wheel at a local studio, so I thought it would be fun for her to have one at home to play with. It's cute and has lots of fun accessories for her to experiment with, and she literally sat at it for 5 hours playing, so it was great for playing with. But realistically, it is still just a toy, and doesn't really compare with the real wheels you find at studios, etc. But for the price, it was a really great gift, and I wasn't expecting artist grade - i was expecting a toy. It did hold up to her play, but some of the gadgets I could tell were a little frustrating. (Hard to spin some of those little pieces manually when your hands are covered in wet slippery clay.) Be prepared for a lot of clean up work. :) Which is good - the bigger the mess, the happier the kid.

Returned this item
I spent an hour with my nephew trying to get this thing to work. The shaping tools knock the clay off the wheel. Hand work is difficult as it stops the spinning even with a light touch. Would not recommend this. It was a big disappointment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This was a gift for my granddaughter and she was thrilled to receive it. The price on it was [$] less than on [...]. I don't know yet what is great/not great about it. It certainly was the only stable pottery wheel available. I read other reviews by customers and they were mostly positive[...]...I think a great value!
