    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Sonic Sleuth:

    This item is not what the owners manual states it is supposed to be or do, the owners manual states it has a frequency control on the right side of the handle. If that is the case it would not adjust on the one I received.

      Sonic Sleuth is So Fun

      By Alex the Sonic Sleuth

      from NJ

      About Me Education Oriented, Educator, Parent, Thrifty

      Pros

      • Easy To Use
      • Lasting Fun

      Cons

      • Tricky battery assembly

      Best Uses

      • Home
      • Outside

      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!
