This review is from: Doctor Who - Electronic Sonic Screwdriver (Toy)
I've got a vast collection of toy laser guns and hasbro lightsabers at home, but none of them compare with the sheer joy of an electronic replica of the Doctor's 2nd favourite piece of technology! Well, all I can say is FANTASTIC. Years and years I've been waiting to finally get my hands on my own Sonic Screwdiver, and now I finally have one!
This is a brilliant little gizmo and great fun for anyone who sees you with it. You just can't resist picking it up and zapping the nearest lock! Not only that, it's refreshing to have a TV show toy that isn't a gun of weapon of some sort. So if you're a parent trying to raise your kids with the right moral values, this is the perfect gadget!
My only criticism of it would be that the main shaft/handle does feel a little flimsy, especially when you extend the screwdriver head. But the interchangeable UV/black nibs, cool zapping sound effects, free Doctor Who post-it note booklet and sheer enjoyment of owning one of these make any imperfections pale into insignificance.
Oh, and here's a cool little tip. UV light can charge any glow-in-the dark phosphorescent material much quicker than a conventional light. So if you have a glow-in-the-dark mobile phone cover, room decorations or any other glowing objects, use your screwdriver to charge it up in a matter of seconds!!!!
