It is ok but for more serious watching I suppose you would need to pay more. It arrived promptly and was what it said it was.

This is actually a 2.5 star review because the price including delivery is now £8.89p.
I paid £5.90 for this periscope including delivery, and at that price it's just about ok as a stocking filler, but if I'd paid even one pound more then I'd be annoyed. Put it this way: if I'd had the chance to handle it in a shop before purchasing, I wouldn't have bought it.

The sad thing is, as is so often the case, this could have been a great little item with just a bit more care put into the design/manufacture. On the plus side, the image is commendably clear, although you only get a very narrow angle of view; I guess this is due to the compact design. But that's not a big problem; where this toy lets itself down is the sloppy build quality.

Its three sections telescope into each other, and it relies on friction alone to keep the sections either fully opened or closed. There's no locking mechanism of any kind, so that when the periscope is in its collapsed state it won't stay that way; the tubes just fall open and slop in and out of each other in a very loose, rattly way when it's being carried. Not the end of the world, but makes it feel unnecessarily cheap and nasty.

The colour I received is a nice fire engine red, which I actually prefer to the yellow shown in the picture. If your kids are still too young to be disdainful of poor design, and if you can get this item with free postage like I did, then I guess you could do worse than to buy this, if only because there are so few options to choose from. Otherwise, you'd be better off making one yourselves as a 'make and do' project. It's not too hard, and there are several instuctionals on the net.

Although given a post Xmas delivery day, I was delighted to receive it the day before Xmas Eve, so was able to give it as a little present to a boy who absolutely loved it. It is well made and a great bargain at the price.

Reasonably priced good quality toy, quite small but effective. Useful viewing tool for my son: on trains, in crowds, at the theatre.

Quite good quality, and works ok, but much smaller than I expected! Probably should have read the setails more carefully. Otherwise fine.
