Package Type: Standard PackagingColor: Green
I will start with what's good about this product: At first glance, this should be a great toy. Most Air Hogs RC toys are difficult to control and end up crashing and breaking within the first day. This product at least has a frame to protect the propellers, which makes it more durable than most. It also doesn't have a remote control, which makes it easier to operate than most.

Now for the bad news: This product HURTS! In order to catch the AtmoSphere while it's in motion. you have to grab it by the frame. And if your fingers get anywhere near the propellers, the pain is VERY sharp and intense. Frankly, I'm surprised this toy made it past the R&D phase. I'm anticipating a recall as soon as some small child gets injured with this thing.

Another downside: The AtmosSphere must be charged in order to work, and for some reason the designers created a battery-operated charger. Why they didn't spring for a rechargeable battery with an AC adapter that plugs into the wall, I will never know. But you can imagine how ineffective the charging process is. It takes at least an hour for the toy to fully charge, and then you can only play with it for about 10 minutes before it starts to slow down. This is poor design, plain and simple.

So overall, the AtmoSphere is a cool idea, but like most Air Hogs products it doesn't live up to expectations. Back to the drawing board, I guess.

Hey Kari, thanks very much for sharing your feedback - we're always looking for ways of improving our toys so we really appreciate it. There is a shut off on the charging base which, when pressed, will stop the Atmosphere from flying. We always recommend using this to shut the toy off when you're finished playing - that way your hands can stay away from the moving rotor blades. We'd definitely like to hear some more of your suggestions, so please feel free to get in touch with our Customer Care Team. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8339 or customercare@spinmaster.com. We're open Monday to Friday, 11am-7pm Eastern Standard Time.

This toy is marketed to 8 to 13 year olds. I thought it would make a great gift for my soon-to-be nine-year-old grandson. When the toy arrived, I carefully opened the package and pulled out the instructions. The trouble began there.

Note to manufacturers: People still read. Please write detailed instructions and give detailed drawings to emphasize. I'm a reasonably intelligent adult, but I kept going, "Huh?' What in the world does that mean?

I took out the Air Hog and the charging cradle to see if I could match parts with the vague drawings (not to scale). The first thing of note is how flimsy the Air Hot itself is. The plastic is so thin even a minor accident could break. I began to think at that point this toy wouldn't work for my rough and tumble grandson.

More durability problems:

The off/on switch on the Hog is inside the globe, the size of a gnat (seeing breaking toy coming), and not clearly marked. The door to the battery compartment on the charging base is tight and can be easily broken off.

The instructions are clear to be careful when turning on the Hot itself, it's possible for the spinning plastic to hit fingers. And, yes, it maybe plastic, but it hurts.

The control of the device is limited to it hovering above the hand while you walk around. Even for me, not much fun.

The first time I tried this out, I found out how hard it is to turn the thing off. As soon as it was airborne the dogs thought they had a new toy. One jumped up, knocked off course and behind a piece of furniture. I had to scramble to get to the charging base to turn the thing off. That's the only kill switch. (Remember, put the dogs out before use.)

A child 12 or older may have some limited interest, but it's not durable enough for younger kids.

This toy needs to go back to the drawing board and tested in real life - including having someone read the instructions for clarity.

As written in other reviews, my families experience with this toy was horrible. It was bought as a birthday gift for my son and he was very excited to open it. He turned it on and attempted to have it hover over his hand. The toy was extremely erratic, and shot off in many different directions flying high and low and bouncing into many objects. BEWARE because if it bounces off of your leg, or catches your fingers, the plastic blades will sharply sting you. My understanding is that the sensor on the bottom creates the illusion of it hovering. As it approaches any object, and believe me you cannot control the direction in which it goes, it will move up and down very quickly. It lifted up several feet and flew at my daughter's hair. She wasn't near the toy initially, but it quickly spun out of control after being on for less than one minute. The blade did not stop spinning as it twisted in her hair. My son and I frantically searched for the tiny on/off button located within the flimsy plastic ball. After removing her hair my husband gave it a try. We cleared the room while he was attempting to operate the toy. Failure again. It flew into him and stung him with the sharp blade. This toy is recommended for children 8 and up, but it isn't safe for adults to operate. I am very surprised that Air Hogs would allow this toy to reach shelves. It is a major safety hazard. I attempted to call the 800 number listed on the directions, but sadly I received an automatic message that stated the company was in a meeting. Really???? The directions also say not to return the toy to the store if it doesn't operate correctly. That's very concerning.Read more ›

This is a piece of garbage, I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

The unit barely has enough power at full charge to hover 1-2 inches above any surface, at 1/2 charge or less, it does not hover at all. It just sits in your hand spinning and buzzing. It is lousy at hovering. It always leans one direction, and will always just fall off your hand that direction. If you try to catch it (even with your palm), you will get buzzed by the spinning blades inside, the little grille does nothing at all. My 8-year-old son doesn't want anything to do with it anymore after getting buzzed a few times.

If you've seen videos of these things in action, they probably had to open two dozen of these pieces of junk before they found one that hovered straight and had everything work.

On our first unit, the charging LED never lit up, the charged LED never lit up, the IR "emergency stop" button did not work, and it would not hover at all. We exchanged it, and the second unit flew no better, and the IR stop button still did not do anything.

Like other AirHogs toys, it is flimsy, cheap, shoddily constructed, and does not work at all like they show on the commercial.
