Comments about Educational Insights Geosafari® Sonic Sleuth.:

Pretty impressive performance. Sat in the kitchen with a friend and heard conversation in the living room (approx. 30' away) as if it were right next to me. Then our 9-yr old took it out to a winter field to listen for animals in the wild. He heard pheasants, squirrels and grasshoppers! He likes to think he could hear conversations of pilots in low-flying private planes too - keeps up the sleuth persona!Downside was that installing the battery was not intuitive. The directions were wrong and we had to email the company to learn how to get it in. Not great on Christmas morning when Santa has finally delivered the long-awaited toy.Once we got it working - a very cool toy - a much more impressive performance than expected!
