PRODUCT: Vivid Imaginations FyrFlyz (www.vividimaginations.co.uk)Vivid Imaginations FyrFlyz

DESCRIPTION: A portable device with LED light, which is attached to string and can be spun to create coloured light sourced patterns and tricks. Requires 2 x LR44 batteries (included). Instructions included. Available in three colour combinations: Blue Angel (blue and multicolour), Cyclone (white and green) or Nytfyr (red and white). Suitable for children aged 8 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: FyrFlyz are set to be the latest craze to sweep the nation, and certainly prove that good things come in small packages!

FyrFlyz have a simple and compact design, and are basically a portable device that can be spun to create amazing hand-held light shows. They consist of a small outer plastic shell Vivid Imaginations FyrFlyz(in a figure eight shape) containing two cell batteries, two different coloured LED lights, and a tiny on/off switch on the outside. Two durable nylon strings run through the centre of the shell, complete with a little finger grip handle on each end.

By holding onto the handles and tightening and slackening the attached string to spin, swing and twirl the FyrFlyz toy at different speeds, the LED lights inside this cleverly shaped device can be made to create a fantastic show of coloured lights and ever changing patterns. A clearance space of at least five foot is recommended.

The FyrFlyz toys are available in three eye-FyrFlyzcatching and attractive LED colour combinations - blue and multicolour (blue shell with yellow string), white and green (green shell with orange string), and red and white (purple shell with red string).

As your child masters the basic technique, they can move on to practising a huge array of more advanced and impressive 'tricks' (either on their own or as part of a group) including Sydwynders, Sunblasts, Blackholes, Saturn Rings and many more. These are shown on the packaging and also on www.fyrflyz.com.

FyrFlyz are certainly very simple to use, whatever the age and ability (see pictures above and below, taken by Toyology.TV at the Westfield Entertainer store), and importantly the string is durable enough to receive some fairly aggressive and persistent treatment. FyrFlyzWhat's more, the results really are very effective - obviously the darker the surroundings the better the effect - and the lights are subtle and not piercing to the eye. In addition, the batteries can easily be replaced, although a screwdriver will be required to open the battery compartment.

These toys will certainly not disappoint...they are wonderfully fun and addictive to play with and even better to watch! What's more, they are reasonably priced, compact to carry, and can be used anywhere, whether indoors or out!

BAD POINTS: None that we can find, although keep away from young children as the toy contains lengths of cord.

PRICE: Approx. £7.99 each
