I was disappointed in this as a gift to a 9 year old. The system to secure the batteries was solid, but poorly explained and we nearly disassembled the whole thing trying to figure it out. The clip needs to be stronger. Given the power of most head lamps I was also disappointed in the range this shoe light provided. I LOVE the idea and look forward to an improved version.
I chose this gift for my 6 1/2 year old grandson because his Mom suggested it. You see, he had been begging for the shoe lights for months, maybe all year, when he first saw them. But his parents wouldn't buy it for him because he has so many good toys already and they don't want to give in and give him everything he wants! So for Christmas, she told me to see if I could find them on Amazon and have them delivered before their visit. When my grandson opened his gift, he was so excited and immediately put them on his tie-up shoes. He said he was going to leave them on those shoes to wear all the time. He didn't take them off when they left to go home several hours away, and I bought more batteries for him that night before they left the next day. I'm thankful Amazon was able to ship the two items right away that I ordered so that I could have an early Christmas with my grandchildren.
My son loves them. The clamp very easy onto his Velcro shoes. They are very bright, and feel very durable
