This awesome adventure kit is modelled on the principle of metal detection used by the troops in the forces to locate mines and create a safe path for our servicemen and civilians. Now you can embark on explorations in your garden with friends with this real working extendable metal detector. This kid-size metal detector has an LED powered indicator and large adjustable sensor area making it easier for you to locate your hidden treasures. The telescope extension means the handle adjusts so it can be used at different heights and makes it easy to store. The audio detection is highly sensitive and buzzes to signal it has found metal.

bought one last year, not very good.

If you want to take up metal detecting as a hobby, don't be tempted to buy this. Even at £25, it would be far too cheap and nasty for any meaningful searching.

Probably OK as a toy for kids. But it would disappoint anyone who wanted a decent detector.

And it certainly ain't an "HM Armed Forces Metal Detector" ! Read the small print, which says it ". . . is modelled on the principle of metal detection used by the troops . . . "

Sorry OP, I know you have posted in good faith but people get really disappointed and can be put off metal detecting as a hobby if they buy cheapo detectors.

No worrie s- but this is a toy - its from the toys & games section - its meant as a present for a child - says kid sized - think its just a bit of fun for a child to play with (_;)

A kid would still expect to find some treasure, may as well give them a stick and tell them to beep as they walk along and save the money lol

yea, and i haven't tried it - but it does say - This kid-size metal detector has an LED powered indicator and large adjustable sensor area making it easier for you to locate your hidden treasures.

Won't be brilliant for a tenner - but my lad would have fun with it (i think anyway !)

We brought a national geographic one from toys r us in October for my sons birthday and that wouldn't work with keys or money under it, they were a nightmare to refund it too, they said its a toy what do you expect, my son was rather disappointed too, he expected to walk along the beach and find treasure

Fingers crossed you one works better!
