Cheap, tacky, not good enough quality for cosplay purposes, and no where near tough enough to withstand child-play.

I purchased this for use as part of a costume, although I found myself a little disappointed.
The light sabre is effectively a low quality flashlight with a three foot retractable 'blade' attached to it. There is a switch on the handle that activates a coloured light, and the colour of the light can be changed by pressing the switch again. There are a total of about half a dozen colours available that allows you to choose what type of light sabre you want.
The handle unfortunately *looks* like a cheap plastic flash light, and when the blade is fully extended it has a 'stepped' look about it as a result of being constructed of three sections that slide into each other much like a radio antenna does. The blade is wobbly and fragile and isn't realistic or convincing enough to be used for anything other than the cheapest and most tacky of fancy dress costumes, nor would it be sturdy enough to resist the rigors of child-play in my opinion.
Finally, at about £12 I think the item is overpriced, with trademarked Star Wars light sabres being available for not a great deal more.
