4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining fun, 31 Mar 2014
I bought this for my daughter, who absolutely loved it. It is a fairly standard adolescent werewolf romp, but has its entertaining moments.

Item arrived very rapidly.
THe wand arrived quickly and was nicely packaged. The recipient, the 4 year old son of a fiend, was absolutely overjoyed with it, particularly the flashing light! So, in that sense it was a huge hit.

Changing the battery and fiddling around a little inside seemed to fix it. I took off one star for this flaw, but would still strongly recommend the product.
