Never sure why one toy takes over the internet, but clearly Spinmaster’s Switchblade has been a hot toy since it was on Late Night with David Letterman. After testing the toy–I see the appeal. It does take off (although the stand didn’t really work) –but unfortunately it didn’t live up to our testers’ expectations in terms of control and durability. Both our kid testers and engineer/inventor dads were frustrated. I see that the price has come down from $69 to $49 on Amazon – but I see the ratings there are more in line with our testing.
