Comments about HearthSong Lighted Metal Detector:
Bought this as an incentive gift/reward for my 5yo son. It misses LOTS of metal items [like coins] but picks up stuff with more metal content. For the price, it's not bad. It finds just enough stuff to keep him interested.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Grandparent
The metal dector was very small and not sensitive enough. we threw coins in the yard and my grand daughter had to find them first and then put the metal detector on top of them before it would beep. She lost interest in about 15 minutes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The detector is sized well for children, but I'm not convinced yet about its sensitivity. I hid coins in the yard and even when they were lying flat the detector did not always pick them up.The dial is also very sensitive, and tricky for my son to set by himself (he's a very bright six).But he does really enjoy playing with it, and we will try it in some more locations.

Fun product for 5 year old
We throw money in yard and my Grandson finds it.He also uses it to find out what is really made of metal.Is well made. Still works after being left in rain.

I bought this metal detector for my 7 year old daughter, who loves adventure, sleuthing, and just overrall having fun outdoors. She absolutely LOVES her metal detector! She can use it indoors and out, (indoors when its raining but she still feels like pretending to look for treasure) and she has actually found some treasure/money outside with it. It's a great little toy for kids, I highly recommend it! Only drawback would be that it doesnt come apart where we could possibly take it with us when we travel (on an airplane,etc.). We will be going to Puerto Rico in a few weeks, and I'd really like for her to be able to use it on the beach. I'll see what I can work out though, she loves it!

Fun for awhile
from Golden, CO
This was fun for awhile and then our 9 year old lost interest. It is not very versatile in terms of creative play.

Light weight Metal Detector
from Macon, GA
I was very disappointed in his metal detector. It's appearance isn't bright-cheery enough for a very young child and is too "toy-ish" to meet expectations of an 7 yr old. Dubious quality in design/construction.
