    Great Toy

    This is a really cool toy, works much better than the ones when I was a kid! BN was quick with shipping and has excellent customer service. I love this store.

    Promote an interest in rocks & geology!

    I bought the same Rock Tumbler for my son when he was younger. Now, my niece has shown an interest in geology & rocks, so I found the same reliable tumbler. It is easy to use, all needed materials are included - even the rocks, and it even teaches patience! This is definitely not an instant reward item. It takes several weeks to grind and polish the rocks before they change into beautiful shiny specimens!

    Do NOT buy from B&N

    Do NOT buy anything from Barnes & Noble. They are going out of business and do NOT provide any customer service. If you do not believe me, google poor customer service Barnes & Noble.

    This product was substandard for 45.00. The drive motor could no

    This product was substandard for 45.00. The drive motor could not power to turn the enclosed rocks within the container. In fact the product indicates to engage motor, "tire with your finger." To frustrate one further you need to have the polisher actually polish for 48 hours. This is impossible if you have to watch and restart the motor every minute with your finger. Perhaps I received a faulty motor. I plan to return mine tomorrow and desire the customer service to be better than the comments that I read when desiring to post my feedback. Caveat Emptor.

    Barnes & Noble has WORST Customer Service

    If you order this item from B&N, please do not plan on received it since they will not send it to you. I was told it would ship 24 hrs after I ordered it and it still has not shipped. Every time I call B&N, they lie to me and tell me it is going to ship and this is nearly a week later. B&N is going out of business and it is GOOD since they have VERY POOR service.
