Needs better instructions
Really awesome hands on model of an engine. I lost the springs required to assemble the piston, I reached out to seller and they responded very quickly and send me the replacement with priority mail. Great product and support!

Great concept in a fun and teachable toy model. Little hands get tired with all of the screwing involved, but having them complete all steps results in a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Obviously with this being a toy, the tolerances aren't super tight, but in the end it works well enough for them to understand the concept.

My grandson wanted to learn how engines work.
Two critical parts cannot be completely attached to the block because two holes in each part are out of alignment by 1/2”. Without these parts the model will not work. I suppose they sent the wrong parts. The “PLAYZ” website is supposedly down for maintenance so they are not available to help. As a project to do with my grandson on our vacation, this is extremely frustrating. I don’t expect to ever use this company again. UPDATE: PLAYZ has contacted me twice since my earlier review. Both times they have been very supportive. I have been very surprised by the warmth of their response. They are offering a full refund (in 7-10 days) and an opportunity for our grandson to receive another model “at no cost.” Yes, the original model was a problem, but the company has been a pleasure.

This engine model was a blast to build and run. The Customer service exceeds all expectations.
had one of these growing up that i built with my dad, this one is not quite as sturdy and for the price is a bit more expensive than I'd like, but is cheaper than some others that are out there. It's a cool build to get the idea of the engine for the kids
I ordered this for my great grandson for his birthday. It was missing a spring and I have contacted the Playz manufacture twice about this problem and hoping to get a spring and I have not heard a word from them. Very disappointed. What good is it with no spring?? I have no problems with the seller, its just the manufacturing company does not care!
