Recently Henry and I have been having lots of spy adventures! We have been investigating lots of mysteries and trying to solve clues and beat the baddies!! When I was Henry’s age I longed for any kind of cool gadget like James bond would have. Now a day’s technology has exploded and kids literally have possession of some of the coolest gadgets that my childhood James Bond fantasy would be jealous of!
What is a spy without some night vision googles though? When I heard about Spy Gear Ultimate Night Vision Goggles by Spin Master I was almost as excited to try them out as Henry was!
Spy Gear Ultimate Night Vision Goggles
The Spy Gear Ultimate Night Vision Googles mean that you can continue your spy missions even when darkness falls! They allow you to see up to 30 feet away in the darkness by using infrared LED’s.
The googles come with an adjustable head strap which makes them comfortable for any head size. The Infrared eye piece clips onto the googles enabling you to see in the dark!
What Did Henry Think?
To say Henry was excited would be a massive understatement. This idea that he could ‘see in the dark’ just made Henry bounce off the walls. I don’t think he believed me when I explained what the googles did. We made his bedroom really dark using a black out blind and when Henry put the googles on he was blown away that he could actually see! This meant that we spent two days in a house of darkness purely so Henry could use his night vision!! I walked into his room to find him laid in the pitch black just wearing said googles!!
I think that he is sold – well and truly! Since trying the googles we have been able to extend our spy adventures and Henry is now a fully-fledged real life spy!
What Did I Think?
I wish that this had been around when I was a kid! I love that the head strap is adjustable which means that it can fit comfortably regardless of head size. The head strap means that you can remain hands free whilst using the night vision which enables you to complete spy missions unhindered – exactly how a spy likes it!!
The spy goggles were easy to setup and just require 3 AAA batteries. There was no building or fiddling involved like I thought there might be. For a children’s toy the night vision is absolutely fantastic and the quality of the overall toy surprised me! I mean lets be honest I don’t know if James Bond would have one in his spy kit but for the mere amateur spies we are they do the job phenomenally well!
This is a great toy to encourage the imagination and a fun addition to role play games.
Want to be a Spy?
The Spy Gear Ultimate Night Vision Googles are recommended for ages 6 years – 12 years but I had a whole world of fun with them myself!! They retail for around £39.99 which I thought was a little steep for a toy but having tried them they are soooo worth it!!
