Is it fun? YES!

Is it fun for more than one kid? Uh. . .maybe.
You can share lightsabers but then there's no point in having the gyro handle if someone isn't using it as a single or double.

Material is the typical hard but slightly giving plastic found with other sabers.

Is it Cool? YES! Cools sounds. Also as a single, the gyro handle gives it the cool hilt of a sword kinda look.

Other single sabers are around $25, so for a bit less than the cost of two you get two, plus you get the General Grievous spinning action.

I can't imagine any kids trying to spin two of these, one in each hand like General Grievous. . .it's already a lot for an adult to handle one with both hands, since you need one hand to do the spinning and one to do the holding.

I imagine my kids, and others, are going to have lots of fun battles with this toy.

Size Name: Standard Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Lightsaber toys of the past are something of a comedy staple for us Star Wars enthusiasts as they were overly priced and broke easy since they were used for (surprise!!) dueling each other with brutal precision. As a child of the 80s I grew up with numerous Star Wars toys (my parents were fanatics) including my lightsaber replicas and, personally, broke eight of them.

When I had the opportunity to try out the newest in a VERY long line of lightsaber toys, namely the General Grievous spinning thingy from the hit TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars, I was pretty skeptical of the quality and lasting entertaining value. While the new Grievous spinning lightsaber is unique that it breaks into two lightsabers, is attached by a spinner that... well, spins, most lightsaber licensed products don't do very well. Needless to say, a true test of quality was warranted and I knew just how to do it.

To ensure complete objectivity in my test of the products durability I turned to the target audience, more specifically the neighborhood boys living conveniently next door, to give the lightsaber a true test. If anyone could find fault with the product, and by that I mean break it, they could.

For thirty minutes I observed the boys assemble the lightsaber, take it apart, hit multiple objects (and each other) with it, accidentally smack themselves in the head while spinning, put it back together again, take it apart again, fight each other with the split lightsaber, spin it around and around, smack themselves in the head (repeatedly), and NEVER got bored. I even got a call later that night saying they were still playing it, enjoying the flashing lights that lit up when they swung the toy around.

My son loved this lightsaber. Assembly presented some challenges, the parts do not snap together easily. The saber makes cool sounds, lights up and generally is tons of fun for a nine year old boy. However, nine year old boys and light sabers mean saber battles with friends and I found this toy does not stand up long to the abuse. The lights and sound went first and then the connections snapped. But my son still plays with the two parts without all the light and sound. If you are looking for a toy that is an instand hit, this would be it for all the Star Wars fans out there. Just realize it is not durable for rough play.

I was surprised when my daughter chose this over less boyish toys like Monopoly Spin; I had no idea she was a Star Wars fan. But for what it is, this is a well-constructed toy, and it's held up to several weeks of pretend battles between DD and her sister. Each saber has pretty good heft and makes very realistic humming, whooshing and clashing sounds, and even a cool "thunk" when attaching or detaching the spinner. (Parent note: the volume isn't adjustable, but the sounds aren't too loud.) The lit-up green and blue sabers look great outdoors at night - wish we'd had these for the Fourth of July. This toy would be great for trick-or-treating.

Each saber requires 3 AAA batteries, not included. The spinner spins smoothly (one-way) or can lock in place with a tab. The sabers screw out of the spinner or can screw together without the spinner. Either attaching them to the spinner or pressing a button turns them on, and they shut off automatically to save batteries if not used after a few minutes, always a good feature for young kids. And in case you're thinking "you'll poke your eye out", the plastic on the saber blades is lightweight about like a soda bottle, and retracts if something is poked. Of course kids need to be old enough to know you never actually hit or poke a person or animal in the face or head with these.

I thought the novelty would quickly die off, but the girls still have fun with this, judging by how often I see it lying around the house.

Okay, I started my Vine testing by playing with this thing myself. (Imagine the kids surprise when I crept downstairs and started whirling my blades... swoosh... zwiir... lots of giggling) Then I handed it over to my 8 yo son and our next door neighbor (5) to play with.
.

DESCRIPTION::: Three pieces. Two light-sabers of different colors and a center piece that has a ratcheting mechanism that allows the blades to circle your hand with a free spinning motion.

Can be used multiple ways. As 2 separate weapons, as a double light-saber (the two swords can be screwed directly together), and as the spinning Grievous weapon.
.

PRO'S:::
The 2 light-sabers are cool. They make the best sounds of any light-sabers we've ever seen.

My son loves that he can share with his friends at a moments notice. By separating the blades they can start whacking each other without delay.

The spinning motion and the fact that the two blades can be screwed directly together gives children something extra to fidget with.

The blades are sturdy! My kids have been whacking each other, bushes, furniture, etc., and I've seen no signs of cracks and dents. Remarkable really, because that's usually what doomed the many other Star Wars swords we've had. [Keep in mind though, that if you have little kids (toddlers, preschoolers) that the hardness might not be a feature when the blade is applied to a playmate's head]
.

CONS:::
I won't comment on price. This is a great toy for the Star War's obsessed but we each have our own wallets to contend with.

My son didn't particularly care for the spinning element.
