This is a really cool toy. I bought it for my (adult) boyfriend because we are both Star Wars fans and I wanted to know how the "dark side detector" worked. He built the lightsaber in less than a minute upon recieving it. The clear plastic piece that glows blue/red was kinda off-center, so that's why I rate 4/5. If you don't want to spoil the mystery behind this lightsaber for yourself, stop reading now.

This is basically a very simple polygraph, relying on the fact that people tend to sweat more when they lie. Skin is more conductive when wet, and this toy uses conductivity to decide whether you're a Jedi or Sith. If you press the on switch with a dry finger, the saber glows blue, while if you have a sweaty finger (or happen to dip your finger in a little bit of water), the saber glows red. So... all Sith are sweaty liars while the Jedi are dry-skinned truth-tellers. Cool!

Overall, we had a good amount of fun learning how this $12 toy worked, so it was worth it.

Bought this for my three year old Son for him to have at John Williams night at the Hollywood Bowl. I didnt want him to have a full size lightsaber, as I didnt want him hitting anybody with it by accident. This little lightsaber was great. Its not the most solidly build thing in the world, but good enough for a three year old to hold up during the playing of the Star Wars theme. There are two colors, red and blue. He likes the blue better as it seems to stand out more. Overall we were happy with the lightsaber and putting it together was sort of fun as well since we were able to do it together.

OK, this is a very small light sabre - smaller than a Bic pen. The switch has a dual on/off modes: 1) two slightly recessed metal contacts that activate the light when touched at the same time, 2) just pressing the switch.

So if you lick your finger and press lightly, one color. Press harder - it changes.

As others have said, it is tiny for a light sabre. It's about the size of a pen. It works based on the resistance in your skin when you press the button. If you have a lot of water in your body and your resistance is low, then you will be on the dark side. If your skin has very high resistance, you will be on the light side. If you're on the edge of the light side, you can push harder on the button and switch over to the dark side. Which you could play off as Anakin's story to be Darth Vader haha.

Bottom Line: It's a neat little toy for toddlers, but don't expect too much excitement out of it.

My three year old son is obsessed with Star Wars and I thought these mini lightsabers would be a fun little toy/science project. They were a hit! He thought it was pretty cool to build a light saber like the one Luke uses.

I used this mini lightsaber for my sons costume. He was a newborn at the time and all the other lightsabers were huge. This one was just the right size. I sewed it onto his the belt. He was a baby Jedi.
