I loved this thing SO much! I never could go fast enough, & it didn't make me feel nauseous at all. When I discovered the spinning Tea Cups ride at Disneyland...I flipped :)

I had two growing up, a pink and a blue. My mom told me that I used my first one so much I wore it out and that's why they had to get me another one! 35 years later, I now have the honor of my 2 yr old son having TWO also!!!!!!!!! :D

This was by fare my favorit toy! I had a blue one and used it everyday. That is until someone stole it from me. I've been sad ever since. ;(

Yeah, I had a blue one too! We'd always spin until we threw up! I would always go too fast but never threw up. 19 years later, I joined the Air Force, and I didn't throw up in the G-Force either!

I had a red one. The stickers were gone off of it because mine was a hand-me-down. I would ride that thing 'til I was dizzier than a drunk duck! I liked to flip it over and make wind with it, or spin for a while and then lift it up and look at the pattern on the carpet underneath.

We had one at my Grandmother's house that we all played with. We had a yellow one and after a while the stickers came off of it. I remember trying to stand on it and spin or two of us spinning on it at the same time. Man, the memories :)

Best toy ever. I used to have a blue one and I used it until I became too heavy to make it spin!! Awesome 80s memory!!!

Had the blue one, and loved it,,,,,,but I always wondered,,,are those 4 stickers suppose to be seats??? Even as a small child I couldn't figure out how 4 people were suppose to ride it at once!

I wore out so many of these things. I'd spin as fast as I could and never got sick. I turned the wheel on one so much the wheel actually came off. I'd slide it back down into the slot and spin again until the wheel started to work it's way loose. Rinse repeat. I'm pretty sure we have a picture with a brand new blue one nestled under the Christmas tree in one of our albums.

I remember being upset when I grew to big for it, LOL.

At the time my nieghbor was 6 like me, and had 3 younger siblings. They had the blue one with CareBears on it. Whenever I went over there I used to want to ride on it so badly, they let me a few times and that was it. For the most part they ignored it. Recently, I bought the orange/lime colored one for my 3 yr. old. He doesn't like it...jeez, kids today!

Between my brother, sisters and myself we must have gone through like 4 or 5 of these all in different colors, we had soo much fun making ourselves dizzy on them!!! Kid powered rides are the way to go!!!

My Sit N Spin was one of my all time favorite toys when I was 4 or 5! I keep thinking mine was orange, but it might have been red. I would get soooo dizzy. Sometimes my neighbors would come over and we'd sit opposite each other and try to spin it. It was REALLY hard to get both sets of legs around it! And then when you tried to spin it, it would be sooooo slow and it would keep sticking from the weight pressing down on it. It LOOKS like 4 people should be able to sit on it because of the stickers, but sadly it's a one-person toy for sure!

My brother and I LOVED this toy. A few years ago my dad bought one for my niece on her birthday because he remembers it as the most annoying toy we had... lol

This was my favorite too. My parents would tell my sister and I that we're going to break our necks spinning to damn fast on that thing. Why did they buy it for us then???

Never owned one- but loved it. I bought one for my daughter and she couldn't wait to ride it.Her first time on it she had a full stomach- I warned her. Then I had throw up all over my living room rug. Yuck speggetti stains all over the carpet. I never laughed/cried so hard cleaning it up! Ahh Memories...Priceless

I had one, only it was just plain yellow with a totally differant wheel: purple or dark green with differant colored circles on it. I loved it, though. Maybe mine was a spinoff brand or older/newer.

Okay, I sent in a picture of one that looks exactly like my old one.

Absolutely my favorite toy growing up. so sad when I outgrew it. I went to buy one for my son and they are all plastic now and the center thing barely locks in. miss the old ones
Dorothy - July 07, 2012 - Report this comment
The ones today are ridiculous and way overdone. I just got one for my's oval shaped and curvy, and allows the child to play music or Simon Says with it. Also, it doesn't seem as sturdy as the ones I remember as a kid.

I had the old-school Sit n' Spin when I was 4 or 5. It made me sick every time.
