        Comments about Poof Slinky Inc. Scientific Explorer Treasure Tracker:

        I purchased this as a beginner metal detector for my ten year old grandson. It is very lightweight. Had I actually looked at it in the store rather than viewing it online, I would not have bought it. I expected a sturdier item. It quit working properly after only about twenty minutes of usage. My grandson was very upset! So was I. I will be returning it to the store. Hopefully they have a better quality one in stock.

        DON'T BUY THIS TOY!!!!

        By mom of 4

        from Texas

        Comments about Poof Slinky Inc. Scientific Explorer Treasure Tracker:

        We just opened the box, put the battery in, and it won't even turn ON. My son is so disappointed (And so are we!!!). I don't have the receipt, it was a gift, so we are stuck with this toy that he never even got to play with.

        Cons

        • Ineffective
        • Not sensitive enough

        Best Uses

          Comments about Poof Slinky Inc. Scientific Explorer Treasure Tracker:

          This item looks cool. Only good thing i can say about it. Even on the most sensitive setting it wont penetrate the earth, or even a coin sitting on the table. u have to be right on top of it for it to sound off. You would be better off spending the extra money to get one that actually works. Im gonna get my son one of the Bounty Hunter detectors this year. hopefully it works! wish me luck!

            This is a Christmas present so we have not used it yet. My son is 7 and I think it will be awesome and lots of fun to keep us busy this summer. I had one in my teens and we spent hours searching for special treasures. I am looking forward to using it with my son. The quality seems great.
