What kid wouldn’t love spy gear!
My son is fascinated by James Bond, Sherlock Holmes or anything remotely spy/detective. He likes the gadgets the mysteries to solve and the mystique.
A few months ago for his 9th birthday he bought some e spy gear form his birthday money. He bought a lie detector test and security camera and an invisible ink kit. He and all of his friends thought these were uber cool (he did ask me if I had eaten the last big cookie though and told me I was fibbing!).
Well a big box arrived for him the other day labelled top secret and to his utter delight it contained various other Spy Gear toys to review from Spin Master Toys. We fell slightly in love with Spin Master Toys at this point.
We were very excited!!
These did look very exciting. Walkie talkies, night vision goggles, light sensors, audio spying equipment and even a spy watch were contained in his top secret box.
The night goggles are by far my favourite. They fit round the head a blue light enables you to see in the dark and even magnify what you are looking at. The also make you look like a beetle. Very cool for camping! Even daddy had a go!
The Spy watch would not look out of place on 007 and it has many functions. It can tell you the time in
Now this is a pretty awesome watch , it can tell you the time all around the world, had a motion detector a decoding screen and secret spy communication tools ( you can send tiny rolled up messages) This is watch 007 would love.
We also have the stealth com walkie talkies. Not only do these look seriously cool they work really well too . It goes round you r neck so you r hands are free and even if you whisper you can be heard up to 250 feet away. These cost £38.93 but are the best kids walkies talkies we have had.
Next up was the Spike Mic Launcher well I have never seen anything quite like this! Get the latest in high-tech Spy Gear! The Spike Mic Launcher delivers super spy audio surveillance. The special dart has a built in listening device. Just fire, stick and listen. With a live audio feed, you can hear conversations happening in far away locations. Each Spike Mic Launcher comes with additional foam darts that can be launched just like the secret listening device. How amazing is that! Spy Gear Spike Mic Launcher £24.99
Then we have the hi tech Spy Gear Panosphere 360 Spy Cam into any room and capture amazing 360° panoramic video. t! The included suction cup tripod and the Velcro band enables you to place the you place the tiny Panosphere in secret locations to record the entire environment. You can then use the included USB cable to download and review your spy footage. Someone suggested putting this on a remote control car. We love this idea! You could also pop it on your bike hat and record as you travel. Fantastic £57.81 (this was recently voted one of the top ten Christmas toys by Dads!)
Next we tried out the motion alarm. My son loved this. He put it by his door and it would sound off if his sister came near his DS . It emits a light beam that can detect movement up to 5 feet.Spy Gear Micro Agent Motion Alarm is
Excellent value at just £7.99
Well I cannot begin to tell you how much fun my son (and in fact all of us have had with these toys.) they are unusual , clever, they work really well, look great and really do enable your kid to go missions! Fabulous.
We highly recommend.
I have to say I think these toys would go down well with girls as well as boys my daughter and I were intrigued. Great fun!
Thank you Spinmaster this has been one of our most favourite toy reviews ever!
