Nice, but realy small

Very tempted, any reason this would be unsuitable for my 4 year old daughter?

Does she have a pacemaker or metal plate installed in her head? Or like to play with your bank cards? If any of the above then no.

However, it's not really a toy. And it's too small and undetailed to be of educational use.

What I think is that you really want it for yourself, 'cos it's cool, and you're justifying your purchase via your daughter...!

I do that sort of thing all the time, so I know what I'm talking about :roll:

Does she have a pacemaker fitted? (edit oops...thekanester you beat me by one minute!)

I had something very similar bought me for Xmas that was same company etc just that it had some lights in the base also.
Anyway it is very fussy in terms of getting it exactly right to 'float' any knock and it sticks to the magnet. It's one of those things that is cool for a few mins but then you can't be bothered to sort it out again after you switched the power off.

Jeez,you've really got a handle on mitchwales haven't you?

You should apply for a job of say,police psychologist,you know like the fictional 'Fitz' in "Cracker":roll::thumbsup:

Just picked one up from my local store. Looks cool. Small in size so I don;t think this has much educational value. Doesn't run on batteries. You have to plug it in all the time. Wonder what the electricity consumption would be? :?

great spot ive been looking for one of these for a while now. Just got the last one reserved at my local store. Cheers poster!!!

From the reviews on Argos' site I would say "No".

One reviewer points out that the globe drops from the magnetic field when turned, thus making it unsuitable for a seven year old.

Hardly the ideal thing for a four year old ....?
