Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusting Problems I bought this toy on a Sunday and by Monday it was not working anymore. The toy was pretty cool and my boys had fun playing with it. If they can find a way to keep the water from leaking where the power switch is the toy would be perfect. Definitely wouldn’t recommend until they fix this problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Idea but poor performance I bought this for my son's birthday. He was so excited after the tornado experiment. Next we tried the lava experiment. The pump didn't work. He was very disappointed because that is what he wanted to use the most.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too bad My children loved this toy but unfortunately the switch rusted out after a couple of weeks of light use. We didn't even get to try all the experiments. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor construction for being made for water We bought this to go with the wonderlab. The only thing our son requested. It was fun for a day and then it started leaking everytime we put water in it. Now the switch is rusted and the toy is no longer working

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is a big disappointment Purchased this for my children for Christmas and it started leaking from the base the first time we used it. not it wont come on after drying it out replacing batteries. the button to blow bubbles into tornado did not work. we have had several little tikes products over the years and this one does not measure up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn’t recommend!!! I bought this for my son as a Xmas present and am very disappointed. I wasted a lot of money buying the ingredients (especially the mineral oil) just to have it absolutely do nothing other then separate and create a clouded mess on the top part (the lava experiment). I see a lot of other parents showing pics of their kids successfully creating it- I tried TWICE. Wasted the money on mineral oil TWICE. And it made a horrible clean up. So after that didn’t work we tried the “foaming fountain” which calls for rock salt. It would be nice if they could clarify what they meant by that because everyone I asked informed me it was likely ice melt (the directions show a salt shaker so one would think it would be Himalayan salt or something of the sort- still would be nice to use better wording considering google search engine also pops up ice melt when “rock salt” is searched). The only one we haven’t tried yet is the dancing spaghetti but so far this toy has unfortunately been costly and ineffective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks through base and shorts out. Bought this as a Christmas present. First use was great, for about 5 minutes. Started leaking out the bottom. So we returned it to the store we got it from and got a replacement. Second one leaked through the base and shorted something keeping the LEDs on when the power switch was turned off. Motor stopped running next day (after the batteries were replaced).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It worked for a day For some reason, it stopped working on the second day we had it. Worked great and was really cool on first day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun learning experiences My 2 year old son got this for Christmas. We have had to leave it at my parents house for now because all he wants to do is play with it. He loves the tornado and the bubbles. We have not been able to do all the experiments yet but this will be a fun way to teach both my young boys. The only problem i have had is cleaning the blender after putting the oil in it. Other then that it has been a great toy and will definitely come in great for their lessons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cant open battery compartment I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son and the screw that opens the battery compartment wouldn’t open and got stripped. My husband had to take all the screws off the bottom and turns out it wad screwed into a nut. Literally it’s made impossible to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for little kids! My kids love this Little Tikes Stem Tornado Tower, is very easy to use and the instructions are easy to read and understand. My kids help me to assembly very fast and in a couple minutes was easy to use! The functions are easy to handle and the ways to make the experiments was fun and very recreational, very good for kids all of ages. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Science and discovery We have only done the tornado. We thought outside the box and added glitter. (Reminder glitter is difficult to clean and if you think outside the box/example cards little tikes is not responsible for any damage caused to the toy or anything else) i only wish the zip tie at the top of the blender wasnt so tight. I cant get it off and feel like ill damage the container if i keep trying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok toy! I recently received the Little Tikes Stem Jr. Tornado Tower. To me the toy is ok. I have only tried a couple of the experiments, but they were pretty simple. My 4 year old has enjoyed, but after she completes all of them all, she probably won't want much to do with it. Not sure if I would recommend or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loved this! I was sent this product for free in exchange for my honest review. My almost 4 year old daughter absolutely loved this toy. It was really fun to use and she liked learning what the different functions would do. Such a great little toy for inquisitive children. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attention Grabber My 3 year old son loves this! He will sit there for hours making tornados and putting his toys into it to watch them spin around. Not much supervision is needed, except for when things need to be measured. He also really likes the lava lamp experiment. So far the only downside I have found is that it can be a little hard to clean up after the lava experiment due to the mineral oil. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, but needs work I was excited to try out this STEM Jr. toy with my 3 year old son. He loved putting the gears in the water and watching them spin around. He now asks to play with the "Tornado maker" every day. There are some things that I think that could be fixed. I was disappointed in the design of the "blender cup". Since it cannot be removed from the base, it makes it harder to clean after using oils from the experiments. It would be helpful to have an actual measurement, like how many ounces you need of the mineral oil on the Lave experiment. We ended up needing 40 oz of mineral oil to get to the 3/4 full. 2 of the 4 experiments failed for us, the Foaming Fountain and the Dancing Spaghetti. We tried them both 3 times and couldn't get the same results as the card. Overall the concept of this toy is great, it just needs a few fixes to make it better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of Fun! Little Tikes Stem Jr. Tornado Tower is more than meets the eye. The activities are endless, clean up is easy, and it's easy to store. The activities aren't too complicated, but they also allow your little one to learn, and give you an opportunity to teach them as well. Great bonding toy with learning included. Definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Sensory development! This was such a fun Little Tikes toy for my child to try! So easy to assemble for parents. The bright colors and the see-through canister to see the tornato in action is what really grabbed their attention the most. The orange button was a little challeging to push but eventually they figured it out. They wanted to add other "objects' to the tornato but I had to say no only what it included. Overall, super fun and well built. This is great for sensory learning and congitive skills. I think you get what you pay for in this case and very awesome for teaching your child science, especially if you homeschool and doing a lesson on weather patterns. Very fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Educational and fun My children and I had so much fun with this. It makes learning a very fun experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! The Little Tikes Stem Jr Tornado Tower has become my daughter’s favorite toy! The cup to fill it is just the right size for her to do all on her own. 3 settings to control the size of the tornado and the button for bubbles is just too cute. I really like that it came with 2 cards that have pictures plus instructions on how to create 4 seperate activities. It’s already assembled, so adding the batteries was all it took. Clean up is a breeze too: just a simple twist and then empty it. Definitely worth snatching this up, it’s a great educational toy that the kids will love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun!! My 3 year old son loves this. He is really into tornados and loved creating his own in water with this. It comes with 4 easy to follow experiments. My son really had a ball! It kept him busy for hours. After doing the tornado experiment he put some of his small toys in and watched those twirl around. I highly recommend it. He was able to do everything on his own with the help of myself with measuring ingredients for the different experiments. I took it out of the package and added the batteries and it was ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun toy! This was a really cute and fun to for the kids! It was fun for them and they liked using the 'blender' to stir up what was inside. It is nice and interactive and made them want to try putting other items in the 'mixer'. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cool concept My kids love this toy. We tried all the suggested experiments and they started to think of their own. My oldest is 5 and parental supervision is definitely required. My only complaint is that the buttons don't work very well. The throttle lever doesn't work 3/4 of the time and the bubble button gets stuck. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
