I would like to say that I will review a toy every Tuesday. So, I am saying that, Im just not promising it. OK? Ok. Now that we got that dope straight, here is the toy:
This is the Eyeclops. It has some award for smart kid toys or something like that. Educational thingies. Anyway, you plug one end into the tv and you use the other end, the eye part to look at whatever, cat hair, a penny, the fur on a teddy bear, the scab on your sisters knee, our the grime under your fingernails. It magnifies the object, just like a microscope might. We played with it a lot at first, and we saw some pretty disgusting stuff. This was fun, disgusting can sometimes be fun because you go: "Ewww, gross" and then you usually laugh.
Unless you have a little mad scientist on your hands though, the novelty may wear out and that is the only problem I have with this. It sits in the playroom, plugged into the TV and I havent seen anyone use it in a while...but I guess it could come in handy. We might decide one day that we NEED to look at something magnified 300 times or whatever it is, and then we wont be at a loss of what to do. We will be prepared.
Anyway, so I give this toy a 3 out of 5 stars. It works well, its easy to use and hook up, its full of neat-o power, but it may be short lived, depending on your kids.
