Great Toy but a bit too fragile
on 3 January 2013
I bought this toy for my 9-year-old cousin for Christmas and if I was already at it, I bought one for myself as well (even if I'm 27 I like these sort of toys for chilling out) so now I can give a review of this product from two perspectives.
Personally, I like it a lot. It works smoothly, the voice that announces the score is clear, we compete against each other during parties (it's almost impossible to put it down), it's great fun, although the sensors seem to be a bit off sometimes (for example on rare occasions it senses one grab as if it was grabbed twice and thus shows an error).
I can also tell that my cousin - who usualy plays with a toy for an hour or two and then leaves it - just couldn't put it down for the whole evening we have been there. The three-handed mode is a bit too challenging for his age, but he liked it nontheless.
If I had to point out one bad trait of the product is that it is fragile. Do not drop it! My cousin kept dropping it on the rug and once it accidentally landed on the hard pavement it stopped working. Fortunately, we managed to fix it.
I give 4/5 for this product because if you design a toy that you are ment to 'juggle' with you should take into account the fact that it will be dropped, several times and apparently the manufacturer did not built the toy with that in mind.
All in all, nice product, great fun, good value but I highly recommend that you only play with it above a thick rug or the couch.
