I don't really know what I expected when I ordered this.
on 1 October 2011
This is something I got for my G-friend as part of her birthday present and she loved it, thought it was cute and funny, which is exactly what I got it for.
'So why are you only giving it 3 stars' I hear you ask, well, It's small (around a foot long) and seems like I paid more than it is worth, maybe I'm a penny pincher but I would've probably been happier with another half a foot long so it seemed like a novelty instrument (which I guess it still is) instead of a toy for a child (which I also guess it is).
One down side that really bemused me was that batteries were included, but were stated to be 'test' batteries, so they lasted a whole 5 minutes, what's the point in that? I may as well have gotten batteries beforehand instead of having to run down to the shop to replace them in order to make sure my girlfriend wasn't disappointed. Furthermore, the part of the item you remove to fit the batteries requires a tiny, tiny screwdriver which only santa's elfs would possess.
In all, it's OK for a laugh, but feel short changed.
