Product Description

Give your kids the thrill of searching the backyard, beach, or park for buried treasure. The Bounty Hunter Educational Junior Metal Detector is lightweight and ergonomically designed especially for young treasure hunters. Not only are detailed instructions on how to use the detector included, but it also comes with a children’s coin guide, a 12-pocket coin wallet, and a coin folder designed to hold U.S. quarters, so the young Indiana Jones has a place to carry his loot. It extends as much as 2.25 feet in length to accommodate kids of all heights. A handy discrimination control eliminates unwanted items like old bottle caps and cans. An LCD screen and speaker sound combine to let the hunter know when he’s close to a big find. Also includes a 2-in-1 magnifier for close inspection of treasure and a trowel with pouch for digging. Requires 2 9-volt batteries (sold separately).

My son is almost 6 years old and loves treasure!

I bought this item for a steal on Amazon ($35.00 to be exact). I was not happy even at that price and decided to return the product. Don't get me wrong. I have a budding treasure hunter (8 years) and she was thrilled by the ability to throw coins on the lawn and find them. However, after repeated tests I determined the max depth at which any metal object could be reliably detected was 2-3 inches in soft earth. We took this item to the beach and found it completely worthless beyond what I term an "imagination toy."

After extensive research, it appears spending anything less than $150.00 will keep you in the toy category despite claims contrary. As a toy, and at $35.00, perhaps it has a function.

Some specific observations:

-Item is made of mostly cheap plastic and cheap metal (pole is metal). The battery cover would not stay secure (requires 2 9 volt batteries) and the batteries bounce around inside the handle (annoying).

-All the nuts and bolts on this item are poorly fitted and made of cheap material. Therefore, when you adjust the pole (for height) or adjust the detector (angle) they will not stay in place.

-No volume adjustment.

-Did not receive the coin collector items in my box.

-Kids enjoyed the "process" of treasure hunting regardless of the aforementioned issues.

If you insist on buying this item, wait for a price drop of around $40.00 and accept this is a toy.

Bought this for my 11 year old grandson for Xmas. He loves it! The perfect size and weight for a child and the perfect start to a great hobby!

I was not impressed with this item. I bought this and the national geographic metal detector so my two young daughters could go metal detecting with me. I bought this one for my older daughter and the less expensive national geographic one for my younger daughter since I didn't want to spend a great deal on something that might break.

Surprisingly, The bounty hunter item really didn't seem to signal items nearly as often as the less expensive national geographic detector. I would have been happy with it if I had purchased two, but when compared side by side with the national geographic detector (which looks more like a toy), I was disappointed with the performance as was my daughter. We gave up using this item and they took turns with the national geographic one.

My son received this from Santa as a Christmas present. Now that the ground isn't frozen any more we have been able to use it. People that are looking for a metal detector to detect deep into the ground need to be realistic and pay the extra money for a different metal detector. I did use it once this winter when I accidentally dropped our shed key into the snow and couldn't find it. Found it with the metal detector though!!!!

For the "junior" detector it is fantastic. My son is almost 6 years old and loves treasure! Within a few days we have found an old pocket knife, a utility knife, an old weber grill cover, lots of nails, and wire. The deepest was probably 2-3 inches, but hey that is a lot of stuff so far. These items were found on our property alone! The coin collecting part hasn't been put to use other than the money we planted in the yard initially to practice with. Can't go wrong with the price, so just buy it already!

I ordered the Bounty Hunter Educational Junior Metal Detector with Coin Collecting Kit for one of my nephews. The first one arrived with broken pieces - plastic wing nut, extension bar was bent, etc. I ordered a replacement that "looked" OK when I peaked in the box. However, when my nephew opened it to try it, the bottom - metal detecting section was not attached due to a missing/broken wing nut and the extension bar did not operate correctly - i.e. it did nothing to hold the bar at the desired extension length. Overall, it was so cheaply made that it is effectively useless. How embarrassing!

Well, atleast I always have. This is one of those few gifts for my kids that I got simply because I never had one as a child. You know, always dreaming of buried pirate, indian, whatever treasure. The metal detector says junior, but honestly I don't know what other features you would need with this. The sensitivity can be adjusted and it made for a nice afternoon exploring in central park a few months back. We didn't find any treasure, but the kids had some fun digging up whatever metal we came across. It doesn't use up too much battery juice and still seems to be fully charged after on-and-off use over the summer. A great buy at $34. Get one today for your child.

It does not go very deep but it works and the fact that it is height adjustable for the kids is great.

Eyes lit up and he tried to use it in the snow! We'll have to wait till April and the ground thaws but my grandson and I will use this a lot. Something I always wanted and now we'll have great fun together.
