I actually bought this during the last Kids Woot-Off. They were larger than I expected and they don't look like $5 toys, so they would make good Christmas/birthday gifts to have on hand for boys in say the age 4-8 range. I gave one to my 5-year-old and he quickly mastered the crane and didn't tire of it as fast as I feared. I am always happy with toys that require no assembly. It only comes with six Squinkies, but the fun seems to be catching them with the crane and then shooting them out when you insert your coin. That's probably the opposite of how it's supposed to work, but that's what my kid found fun, anyway. You can always take the little plastic balls and fill them up with other things,too, I guess. So - decent purchase, if you need to stock up on gifts (I'd say the $5 shipping for just one doesn't make a lot of sense).
