A children’s toy that’s as functional as fun
6 March 2018
I review a reasonable number of products, but I haven’t really used a metal detector before, never mind reviewed one. However, from spending a relatively short amount of time with this product, I can say that it is a great toy for those young explorers out there.
Obviously, this isn’t a hardcore detector that is going to find metals deep deep beneath the ground, but you should be set for a good 10-15cm below ground level. Really, from looking at other detectors, this is a common range for this price point, and obviously the pricier the detector, the more range you are going to get. However, as this is focused at those juniors amongst us, you’re not going to be wanting to dig mile deep holes with the provided trowel.
As mentioned before, this is a product primarily targeted at children. As such, the handle reflects this, being shorter than that of a full-length detector. This can be adjusted with the telescopic grip, which means that children of all ages could use the product.
If I had one gripe, I would say that the build quality is alright in some places (the handle for example) and the body could have been made of metal for greater strength. However, this would reflect in price, and would lead to the item becoming more of a serious bit of kit than a children’s toy.
Yet, if you’re looking for something that will no doubt keep your kids entertained as long as there’s things to dig up, this is the product for you.
Plus, the battery is included too :).
