Good compass for children – Compass Keychain with Thermometer Reviews

posted by Mobile777 on 06/25/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Compass with a rotating scale
- Thermometer with Celsius and Fahrenheit markings.
- Wind chill factor table
- Key-chain to tie to your keys!
Cons:
- Thermometer takes some time to adjust, like other cheapish thermometers.
- Compass needs to be balanced to show the direction which is not useful for navigation.
- Build quality is cheap.
Other:
This can be a nice gift for a child. Let him try to balance the compass to make it show the right direction, or send him to stand in the cold for ten minutes till he realizes what the temperature really is. Don't rely on this for field navigation or anything serious.
Bottomline:
Overall, it has many nice functions that can be useful for kids as their next toy.
