    Neat little Kris Kringle present

    posted by foundit on 11/23/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    I drew a friend's child in the Kris Kringle. She said he likes cars and this looks neat within the price range. Very compact packaging in the can. Everything has it's own place. Even those cones lock into the lid so they don't fall out when not in use :...
    Cons:
    No batteries in the pack but that's not a big issue.

    Cons:
    The wrist strap thread will get in the way when tail standing it but the torch will still stand; just at a slight angle.
