My 8 year old really loves Magic Jinn. He likes the fact that Magic Jinn seems to be listening to him. With every question your child answers Magic Jinn gets closer to his answer and kids really seem to react to him. Maybe for the next Magic Jinn, he can guess another subject other than animals.

I received the Magic Jinn for free as part of a Bzz Agent campaign to test and review. Besides seeing how cute he is, and liking his bright colors, my first impression was that the battery installation was a bit of a struggle. The product design on that could definitely be better.My seven year old daughter and I decided that we would start with something simple just to see how it worked, then we would move on to a more obscure animal. Both my daughter and I had fun laughing and playing for quite a while, but we also found a few things that were bothersome:First, you have to articulate almost perfectly in order for Jinn to understand what you're saying to him. My daughter became increasingly frustrated with having to repeat herself and would just tell him to "go back" or even turn him off. I can't imagine this would be a fun game for anyone who has even a minor speech issue, or an accent. Second, Jinn is condescending. I've spent seven years teaching my daughter to be kind and understanding, to never speak down to anyone, to never be a sore loser and always be a gracious winner. Now, here's this toy doing the complete opposite, saying things like "I knew I was smarter than you!", really??? I was fairly taken aback.My daughter showed Jinn to a few of her friends and they enjoyed finding ways to "stump" him, which they did on a few occasions. I do recommend using animals that you have a fair amount of knowledge on, Jinn can ask questions that even as an adult you may not have the answer to without looking it up, and where's the fun in saying "I don't know" over and over! We also noticed that he will repeat the same question two to three times during one game. Not consecutively, but fairly close together.Overall, Magic Jinn offers some laughs and some educational opportunities, as well. However, it's not something I would have purchased on my own.

I was looking for a unique gift at a reasonable price that would actually get played with for more than a day. This is it. Especially young elementary school kids (K-3) will be intrigued by how it works.

Our entire family LOVES Magic Jinn! Adults and children of all ages. Super easy to understand and use. He guesses our animal everytime but never right off the bat so it makes it fun! He even has a great sense of humor and voice. His questions get you thinking and end up being educational for the kids. The perfect gift for anyone!

I am bzzagent, so I receive free products to try, share information, review and sometimes share discount coupons. I received a product that my whole family enjoyed.Hasbro's latest game Magic Jinn a little blue animal with an orange nose. After inserting 3 AAA batteries.You push his nose and he starts talking.I am not a fan of toys that make noise or talks. But I agreed to give Magic Jinn a try. The volume of his voice is loud,with a thick accent. He does not have a button to adjust it.He explains all the rules and starts asking questions, just like 20 Questions. You think of an animal and then answer Yes or No questions. Eventually Magic Jinn asks if "--- is the animal your thinking of.Magic Jinn has 300 animals in his database. And there is a computer app. I was skeptical that a toy could really guess what animal you are thinking. Magic Jinn proved me wrong. No one in my family could stump Magic Jinn. So it motivates kids to research rare animals to stump Magic Jinn.Which adds to the educational value of the toy.aside from the few negatives. It is a fun addicting toy that I recommend.

Fun At First
My 6 year old daughter was so happy when she received the Magic Jinn game in the mail (we received this game as a trial). She played with it for 5 nights and then she was basically done playing with it after that time. Magic Jinn did not guess any of her animals correctly but instead came up with some crazy animal names that my child had never heard of, rather than simple ones that she had thought up. Also, after the first 5 nights of play, Magic Jinn had already gone through a set of batteries. I was pretty disappointed with Magic Jinn, as was my daughter.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This toy has been popular at our house. We received it free to review, even after I thought they were bored with it, they began to play with it again. Even my 2 year old likes it. Its voice is creepy though.
My 4 year old love Magic Jinn

My 4 year old plays with this often. I was very suprised that Magic Jinn is even able to guess correctly when she answers a few of the questions wrong. Ladybug was one that seemed to stump him.

The Magic Jinn is an adorable little turquoise electronic cat that guesses what animal your child is thinking of based on the questions it asks and answers it receives back. Magic Jinn asks questions and the child can answer "yes", "no", "I don't know", or "it depends". It really makes the child think about what he or she knows about the animal in mind. My daughter was the perfect age for it at 6 years old - she loved it and despite her best efforts, could not stump Magic Jinn! My 2-year-old is a little too young for it, but was still entertained by his sister playing it and he wanted to carry it around often. My husband was able to beat Magic Jinn, so an adult with a more obscure animal may be able to do so, but children will definitely be challenged and amazed by this little cat!A few detractions: my daughter did get bored with Magic Jinn. She wished he could guess more than just animals and lost interest in playing. As a parent, I wish Magic Jinn had a volume control or headphone jack - he's a bit loud! We also found some of his phrasing a bit condescending ("I knew I was smarter than you!"), but that was a minor point. Overall a cute, fun and educational toy!We got to test the Magic Jinn out for free as part of a BzzAgent BzzCampaign.
so much fun

My daughter loves Magic Jinn. She plays it all the time. She has been trying to stump him since she got him. Magic Jinn has really challenged her even guessing correctly when my daughter was thinking about an earwig! My daughter has even researched animals trying to stump Jinn. I would suggest to all parents.
