These probably aren't wonderful, but they seem to be proper prism binoculars, not faked up field glasses. A better toy than most toy bins.

Excellent for 'bird' watching

Seriously, are they any good for general use? My hubby wants to get some for his Father this Xmas but we really don't have a lot to spend, so if these will do the job it'd be great.
Otherwise, any other suggestions in this price range please?

You might be better getting the £15 ones from Lidl, if they still have them. I doubt these are much better than playthings.

Can't imagine they're great (probably not very robust) but for the money I'm sure they're fine if they're not going to be carried around and dropped too much.

If you're looking binoculars for most used (unless you plant to mount them on a tripod then 8X (or maybe 10X max) is a reasonable magnification - don't be suckered in by useless higher powered stuff or (worse still) zoom ones.
