Additional common household items such as paper towels, newspaper, and a plate are also needed to complete the pots. A 12-page instruction booklet is included with safety tips, a brief history of pottery, and step-by-step, illustrated instructions for molding and painting pots. The pottery wheel can be operated with the AC adapter or with four D batteries (not included), and parental supervision is recommended. --Marcie Bovetz, mother and former children's librarian
