I ordered this Dancing Leaves Wind Spinner, because I loved a similar wind spinner i saw at a friend's house. Also it was on sale. This was over a year ago. I prefer to make a review on an item after at least a year, because then I have more of an idea of the quality. I have had my wonderful Danding leaves wind spinner almost two years and it has performed perfectly. I did reinforce the support rod after reading the reviews, but it is a wonderful highlight to the view out of my home office;. At least one side spins with the slightest breeze and both side really get rolling with a good wind. You have to keep it lubricated and make sure the support rod is plumb straight up. But I love it. I highly recommend it.

I like the look of the Wind Spinner with Dancing Leaves. I would like this item better if it would actually spin. Even on the windiest of days it sits motionless.

I received this last June for Father's Day and it just landed in the trash dumpster. It was nice for a few days. Soon after putting together the nuts keeping the the rotating pieces kept coming off. I had to rig a way to keep them on. This spring I brought it out to put outside and the pole had rusted so much it would not stay together. What a waste.

I got this spinner for Christmas and I love it. It didn't come with instructions, so it took me a little while to figure how to attach the propellers. I noticed some of the other comments said it didn't turn unless there was a really big gust of wind, and I believe they don't have it attached correctly. There are 2 nuts, 2 cap nuts, and 2 cover plates. The open bearing side goes on the outside when you put it on the poll. Then the regular nut goes on. This lets it spin freely as it only touches the inner piece, and doesn't impede the bearings. Then the cover plate goes on followed by the cap nut. Now it's tight, but spins freely. Good luck!
