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.

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.

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.
