It was alot of hassle actually getting this product over christmas, but finally arrived after weeks of waiting. The little boy it was intended for was delighted with it, and proved the most popular present (more than the bigger ones) over christmas. He hasn't stopped using it, and as regards value for money - as a stocking filler - I would highly recommend it for any young amateur naturalist.
Remember you do get what you pay for....if you want an all singing all dancing product for an older person, it will probably fall short. Its clearly intended for the younger person, and will give hours of free nature watching, lightweight, and easy to carry whenever out for a walk or picnic (small enough for little pockets).
As an adult I have also slipped it in my pocket too when going out for a walk, its not super powerful, but you wouldn't find me complaining for the money. A good, lightweight - yet robust product.
