This trick was fantastic when I had first received it. It confused everyone and allowed audience
participation. However, I went to use it after a couple of weeks of being out away and the modeling
clay had lost its bounce!!! The only way I could make sense of this is that it was getting too hot
where I had it stored, but it did not get above 75F. This made me upset that I had got only my $10
worth out of this $30 trick. This trick would have gotten an easy 5 stars if it would have been made
The other 2 reviewers did not have your experience, so perhaps you got a defective prop. As you bought it from Penguinmagic, you should contact them directly about this and I'm confident they will make things right.
