I was lucky enough to review this product on my blog and it was so much fun! Lots of great ideas to use this in the classroom by burying some learning maipulatives with some metal attached. A great way to get the students engaged in learning for sure!see moreof the reviewer's review

I received this to review for LR and it's just the perfect size for your smallest toddler & preschool age children. It is a great way to introduce treasure hunting and items made from different materials to kids and would be fun for a preschool enrichment center as well!see moreof the reviewer's review

The too short handle will wear a child out after a while, as even a 4 year old has to hunch over to use it. But the lights and sounds that go off when a metal object is near are very fun. This is perfect for doing some great independent play on the beach, in the sandbox, or even in the back yard.see moreof the reviewer's review

We got this product for our grand daughter who is almost 5 years old. She loves to be outdoors and my husband has a metal detector and she is too young to use his. We really like this metal detector from Learning Resources but we do wish it had a little longer handle. She is average size for a 4 1/2...see moreof the reviewer's review
