As a more mature Dr.Who fan i found the larger sonic screwdriver with lights and sounds fantastic, but i looked about four playing with it. This torch is an excellent alternative, its smaller, simpler but still has a good Dr.Who feel about it. Yes its very basic, but i found that the LED was very weak (2mm diameter LED), and it being such a simple design, i took it apart and soldered in an 8mm one instead, amazingly easy and now its a unique, very cool and very bright torch.
Make sure you know what your buying, this is the torch ONLY!! the lights and sound one is a larger and different product.
