"My 6 and 8 year old sons love this and both have one. Now for how I feel about it. It is big and cheap looking. This is VERY loud and can't be turned off without removing the batteries, which requires a screw driver. Battery door flops on one end and doesn't stay closed. I wish I would have just saved the money and used a stick from the back yard instead of getting this, which actually would have made them just as happy!"
