Kinetic Sculpture Pinwheel Spinner
I couldn't wait to get this home and get it in my front yard. When I opened the package (I ordered the pinwheel, not the flower), some of the petals were already bent. I thought this was probably from the shipping, but the fact is that while the inside "spokes" are heavy and well made, the "spokes"(the ones that actually catch the wind)attached to the inside ones are very flimsy and easily bent. If they survive one of our windy Texas summers, I will be very surprised. In addition, some of the screw holes didn't line up and while trying to get the screws in, the screws stripped out and now I can't even get them out to replace them. BUYER BEWARE!!! This was my purchase from this company and will probably be my last.

does not work
the sculpture, while looking nice does not spin even in a fairly strong gust.it does not have a diectional pivot, there fore you must be sure to point it into the wind. Also the blades are not balanced, requiring more wind to overcome the bottom weight. I am going to return it if possible.

needs a zero rating
I bought the flower spinner and it was very difficult to assemble the flower spinners, each of which comes in halves and must be attached with screws to fittings that do not line up. One of the flower spinners would not slide onto the spindle fully and therefore the hub that covers the screw could not be screwed on. Additionally, that spinner does not spin smoothly; there is friction and the wind will not turn it. The wind does not turn the other spinner, either. Moreover, unlike other kinetic wind spinners on the market, the entire head is stationary and does not rotate, therefore it cannot catch any crosswinds. Parts arrived with visible rust. The directions indicate that this product is made of iron and not steel as indicated to the answer provided on this website to a consumer question. It must be polyeurethaned periodically to prevent rusting. I am completely dissatisfied with this product. It has not turned once in the wind, no matter how strong and its construction is defective. I would recommend that no one buys this spinner.

The kinetic flower spinner doesn't spin. It was hard to assemble because the holes you are supposed to put the screws through are not aligned. The blades are not balanced and the flower won't spin. I turned a leaf blower on it at top speed and finally got only one of the flowers to spin.
