Our Illuminarie Dual-Motion Windwheel must be seen to be believed! The kinetic design of the windwheel allows it to rock and rotate around a glow-in-the-dark globe in the center. This beautifully colored globe contains luminescent crystals that absorb the sun’s energy by day and release the stored energy by night. Enjoy this unique windwheel anytime of the day or night.
Comments about Product: Interesting wind wheel with two wheels with wind cups facing opposite ways so when the wind catches the cups the wheels are whirling in different directions, and they really move in a brisk wind.
Comments about Product: I gave this item as a gift and was there when it was opened. It was packaged well and arrived in excellent shape. It was easy to assemble and the spinning was smooth and would spin from only blowing on it. It will look beautiful in the yard. I want one for myself!!
Comments about Product: I love the shape, metal and blue glass ball! BUT I wish it was another section taller to catch the wind better. I have emailed the manufacturer and Wind and Weather if I can purchase another section of interlocking piping but have not heard back from either one. dfav
Comments about Product: I saw this at a friends house and wanted to find one. I searched the internet looking and found it at Wind &Weather. I was very happy to find it and ordered it immediately. My happiness turned quickly to disappointment. The Windwheel came damaged. They replaced it with another one, however; that one came even more damaged! It was bent and missing a spoon! It also does not spin as the video shows. Only the first wheel spin. It is not worth the price I paid!

Comments about Product: Much smaller than I expected. Once the stake is pushed into the ground, it is only 37 inches high. It needs an additional pole extender to make it a better height spinner. Bought 2 other spinners that are in the 60 inch height range, so this spinner is much smaller than my other two.
Comments about Product: I received this for Christmas and I really like the item. The spinner parts work great, but the globe has never lit. I don't know if it's because the sun is not warm enough in winter, or if it just doesn't work. I really like the looks of it, but I'm disappointed that it has not lit yet. I would recommend it as far as looks and quality, but since I've not seen it lit at night, not sure I should recommend it.
Comments about Product: This dual motion windmill will have your neighbors asking where you purchased it! When there is a light wind this spinner really moves fast and looks very pretty when it's in action and at night the glass globe glows at night without electric cords! I'm very happy with this purchase!
Comments about Product: Shoddy welding job resulted in it arriving broken. Overall quality was less than what I expected (thin material, lightweight such that it's hard to imagine it could withstand the elements). Very disappointed.
Comments about Product: It looks good spinning in the breeze. Didn't break in the recent wind storm. I'll say, though, that if it glows, I haven't been able to see it. We have LOTS of sun during the day and have no street lights or other night-time illumination. I admit I had expected more.
Comments about Product: I absolutely love this Illuminarie Dual-Motion Windwheel. It turns with just the slightest breeze and really spins like mad when the wind is blowing stronger. I just love the way it whirls around. I don't really notice it glowing, after dark as it is just glow in the dark paint but if you shine a light on it, then turn it off it does glow. It has stood up to some very fast wind with no problem at all. It is so fun to watch. I would totally recommend this windwheel. It is very well made of heavy metal. Very sturdy.
Comments about Product: The object is beautiful;however,I purchased this particular item to move with wind. The smaller wheel isn't moved by wind;the larger one is easily moved by wind. I really love the style of the product but wished I had listened to the reviews that complained about this issue. Next I'm going to try clipping the weight on the small wheel off to see if this helps. Beautiful as sculpture in garden.
Comments about Product: Item arrived well packed, and quickly. This is so beautiful, a little smaller than I hoped but very neat and well made. The slightest breeze sets it going, quite impressive to watch. Everyone wants to know where it got it. I will definitely enjoy this for years.
Comments about Product: This windwheel is the ultimate in windwheels. I couldn't resist and am glad I didn't. It didn't disappoint at all, quite the opposite. It couldn't be prettier and I hope to watch it for many years to come.
Comments about Product: The windwheel is just as beautiful as the picture. It would have been nice to know before the purchase that it must face the wind for it to turn. It should also be taken out of the yard if the wind is stroger than a strong breeze.
Comments about Product: I cannot answer these questions as this is a birthday gift and I won'tknow the reaction til 3/6. If you wish this information then, pleaseresubmit this request. The service re ordering and shipping was excellent.
Comments about Product: We really love this windwheel. It's beautiful and works very well in the wind. It takes more than a breeze to turn it but it's lovely when not moving too. It really adds a nice touch to our rock garden. We had really strong winds this morning so removed it although it remained standing. We didn't want to chance having the pieces damaged.
Comments about Product: This WindWheel catches the wind and spins wonderfully. It is eye-catching and even when there is no wind it is beautiful. With a slight breeze there is some movement, due to a pendulum type of action.
I have not seen the "glow in the dark" feature. As it is winter & I am not out then. I think you have to be real close to see that. Save that for summer!
I would have liked a longer/ taller pole for this windwheel, seems it should be 12- 18 inches higher. But it is still awesome! The actual windwheel is large enough to make a great presence in your garden.
Comments about Product: I gave it to my husband for his birthday. He put it in the garden and the wind blew and it went crazy. We like yard art and this ads more beauty to our yard. The key to pinwheels is to be sure they are balanced and they will turn in the wind.
Comments about Product: In the first location the spinner was placed, as stated in some of the other reviews, it did not spin; however, once it was placed in a different spot where it could catch the wind, it performed just as advertised. If it doesn't work in one spot, try another. This spinner really gets my guests' attention, even when it isn't rotating or the ball doesn't glow. An attractive addition to any yard/garden!
Comments about Product: This item looks great as yard art, but in the six months I have had it in the yard it has never spun. A friend has the same item and it only started spinning durning a hurricane when the wind exceeded 35 mph.
