It's just like I remembered. The blue liquid was cloudy at first which made it difficult to read but it's still just a fun decoration/toy that reminds me of the one I had when I was a kid.

Not anything like the original one. I thought the one I bought was defective, but I guess it’s just a terrible design. It’s sad that a classic toy is now a badly designed shell of the original. Don’t buy.

Not as good as they used to be. The triangle doesn’t want to come up to the top all the way so it’s hard to read it.

Not so magical

MauiKim - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This Magic 8 Ball isn’t so magical! The little triangle doesn’t reveal any answer, it just tilts on it’s sad little side leaving you in the dark! Don’t waste your hard earned dollars!
