Spynet Ultra Vision Binoculars Review


Last night I was caught by a neighbour, lurking in the bushes outside our house with big man and a pair of the Spynet Ultra Vision Binoculars. Not the easiest thing to explain, so we just demonstrated the binoculars to him! They work really well, so well infact big man easily spotted the bucket in the alleyway by our house. He just failed to mention it to me! The idea behind them is it will encourage spy type imaginative play in older children. Big man loves them and keeps asking to go outside with them. There is a day and night mode as well as a thermal tech and ghost recon settings which just give you different effects. The thermal one doesn't pick up heat. There are focusing dials and long and short range settings.The pictures you take aren't the highest quality in the world, but I still think they are pretty good.


At £49.99 they are on the expensive side. They take 4 x AA batteries (not included) and if you want to capture video and photographs of your mission you will need a micro SD card too. Again these aren't included so it is worth factoring into the cost of these if you think that it is something your child would like. Big man was quite happy wandering around looking through them, however, he does like taking the photographs and if he managed to see the odd cat or fox, I think he would be excited to catch it on camera. Here is a video of me looking for big man who was hiding in the garden (apologies for me cackling at the end!)



Big man thought the binoculars were cool and has enjoyed playing with them. The main problem with them is that he wants to take them to bed with him and can spend ages looking at his room in the dark! More information on the spy games can be found on SpyNetHQ.com

Update: After having used these more, I highly recommend that you get rechargeable batteries for them. My son forgets to switch them off and they don't turn themselves off so well worth while! They are also a present that only comes out now and then so worth thinking about if you are paying full price.

We were given the binoculars for the purpose of this review but the opinions here are my own.

I must admit I will be quite happy playing with him - ideally if it isn't too cold!

Ha ha - that sounds like something my kids would say - can I take them to bed! Maybe they think they will be able to see more in the dark/ - my reply to that: 'you need to eat more carrots!'

Something a kid would enjoy using. I like the idea that you can capture videos or photos.

these look fun, a bit expensive I think though as the novelty would soon wear off

They are pretty cool but sadly probably a bit on the expensive side since I could see the boys losing interest in them quite rapidly! xx
