Pros:
The price is good, of course. You certainly get a nice aluminium whistle for $2 here. The light works, but I cannot figure out how to turn it off and on in any positive way. The item ships with a little bit of plastic over the batteries, so you need to open it up, ditch the plastic, and scret it back together
Trouble is, once you put it back together, the light is on, and... it's on! The only way I can see to turn it off is unscrew it a bit... Not the greatest...
Cons:
The compass isn't actually a compass per-se, it's a random number generator! :-) The compass really doesn't work!
Other:
Bottomline:
It's kinda cute. If you have a relative that you hate, give their kids some of these for Christmas (the kids will run around blowing the whistle like crazy and drive their parents mad!)... but don't buy it as anything other than a novelty!
