Spy Gear Micro Spy Kit XS1 Review (Spin Master)

What It Is

The Spy Gear Micro Spy Kit XS1 delivers five stealth-sized pieces of spy gear perfect for completing any mission. The Spy Gear Utility Belt holds a Micro Agent Motion Alarm, a Micro Agent Listener, a Micro Agent Night Spyer, and a Spy Lazer Pen. Place the Micro Agent Motion Alarm next to a door or in a hallway, and when someone walks by, the alarm will sound. Turn on the Micro Agent Listener and insert the earbud into one of your ears. This electronic listening device hears sounds up to 29 feet away. The Micro Agent Night Spyer uses a focused red light beam to let kids see in the dark up to 24 feet. Its 2X power telescope is aimed to view the lighted area. The Spy Lazer Pen can be used in multiple ways. First, press the button to activate the laser pointer/flashlight. You can insert one of three colored lenses to change the light's color. There is also a telescope on the back of the pen. And the pen can be used as a, well, pen. The Spy Gear Micro Spy Kit XS1 also includes two belt clips for attaching the Motion Alarm and the Listener.

Is It Fun?

The Spy Gear Line is all about letting kids pretend to be spies and go on spy adventures. This playset comes with everything kids need to engage in creative roleplay. Most of the gear works really well. However, the Micro Agent Listener didn't work so well from 29 feet away, but if you're only 10 feet away, it does pick up even the tiniest sound pretty well. We also wish that the utility belt had clips for carrying all four tools instead of just two. Without the extra clips, kids can't easily bring all of their spy gear with them.

Who It’s For

The Micro Spy Kit XS1 is for ages 6 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The Micro Agent Motion Alarm requires two AAA batteries, which are not included. Six button cell batteries are included for the other devices.

The Spy Lazer Pen operates with harmless infrared light beams. It is not a true laser product.
