This review is from: 20Q (Toy)
This little toy, about the size of a small apple, is completely addictive. It is recommended for ages "8 and up": I exceed that by over 30 years and I can't put it down.
No, it doesn't get it right every time (I was thinking of "camera" and it guessed "nose", bizarrely..)but the truly remarkable thing is just how often it DOES get it right after asking apparently irrelevant questions. I reckon it outwits you 3 times out of 5 but, hey, it's just so damn clever even when it's wrong..
I agree totally that it is great for children but anyone under 8 might have difficulty answering some of the questions. "Do you bring it with you?" is the weirdest question as even I'm not sure what it is trying to discover with that enquiry.
It's handy, cheap, engrossing and baffling. Highly recommended.
I'm off to have another go. Will it guess "skipping rope", I wonder?
(Two minutes later). Yes it did. Awesome. Totally awesome.
