Spy Gear Spy Wire Mic Review (Spin Master)

What It Is

The Spy Gear Spy Wire Mic lets young secret agents covertly record conversations. Attach the recording device to your belt and line your jacket with the wired microphone. Press the record button to activate audio recording and capture conversation. It records up to 10 seconds of a conversation. To play back your recording, press the play button and the conversation will play through the Spy Wire Mic device. To erase the recording, simply re-record or turn off the Spy Wire Mic.

Is It Fun?

The Spy Gear Spy Wire Mic lets kids feel just like a real spy as they roleplay different spy adventures. The directions say that you want to be within three to four feet of your target for optimal recording, but even when we were that close, the recorded sound played back with a lot of static, and it was difficult to make out what our targets were saying. We tried getting even closer to our targets, and the result was pretty much the same. Clearly, this is for more imaginative role play; it's not remotely like "wearing a wire," which is probably a good thing.

Who It’s For

The Spy Gear Spy Wire Mic is for ages 6 and up.
