Advantages: Still works even with heavy handling
Disadvantages: Could get boring over time
My son saw this in Tesco and just had to have it, priced at just over a tenner he used his pocket money. They're cheaper online, Amazon are selling them for £6 delivered free. This toy is made by Mattel, so it's good quality.
What is it? it's an electronic mind reading guessing game- you think of an item then 20 Q asks you questions such as animal or mineral to which you reply yes, no, sometimes or unknown. Your reply is answered by pressing the relevant buttons on the front, there is also an undo button to change your answer. If 20 Q can't guess correctly within 20 questions you're the winner. The questions are displayed on a small easy to read screen. It is tennis ball sized making it easy to store and comes in several colours- ours is blue. The game requires 2xAAA batteries (which are included) but we've only had to change them once, they last ages and are simple to replace.
It amazes me how often it gets it right, only sometimes giving a random answer. We've tried to trick it with things like 'ghost' but it actually guessed that correctly. My son can play with this on his own or can harass the rest of us with it, which he does. It's a handy size to take out with him, for example in the car. Him and his cousin play with it loads, they spend ages trying to think up crazy things- it often guesses resulting in them being spooked, us adults are sometimes enthralled by it too!. His cousin has since bought one himself.
I think it's a good quality toy and it still works, the plastic isn't scuffed it still looks new and the buttons aren't broken. I would recommend this as a novelty toy.
Summary: Small and neat portable toy, that gets you thinking
