These have an incredibly durable construction, for falls and general play use. Also, if you know anybody that is anxious around things that scurry, this will be a great way to terrorize them MUAHAHAHAHA.
My 13 and 9 year old love theirs. They were so dazzled when they turned on for the first time. I was happy to see them using their brains. The 9 year old sleeps with hers at night. Love these little toys.
