Wouldn’t it be great to be a spy? Obviously not an actual spy like on Homeland where you could get killed every half-minute, have to subject yourself to various forms of torture and have more pictures of dead bodies on your iPhone than a serial killer. I mean a fun spy like Cloak and Dagger, remember that movie?

Obviously I was always Davey!

Those walkie talkies are now bigger than an iPad!

I wished so badly something that exciting would happen to me and my brother down at the local video game store. We used to spend hours pretending water guns were real, making trip lines with string and running around like lunatics with backpacks filled with Atari games, running for our imaginary lives.

So, when MukikiM Toys offered to send me some spy gear for the boys, I think I was more excited than they were! Although the NYC Toy Fair wasn’t a great experience, working with the people at MukikiM and SpyX has been the complete opposite.

First, let’s check out the toys…I mean Spy Gear…

This was, by far, the favorite for obvious reasons…


We needed to hide that thing by the second day because they were really tricking us with it and, one night I almost fell down the stairs because it went off when I was going up to bed at 10pm 9pm 8:30pm. I did not even see it…which I guess is the point.

The boys couldn’t quite figure this one out and, instead of spying on conversations, they would hold up the end piece and make us talk directly into it. Of course after that they were shouting back and forth trying to blow each other’s ear drums out (see video demo below). I didn’t try to correct them since, the less they overhear, the better off I am.

My boys already think they can see in the dark so, they especially loved the micro eyes to “enhance” the effect. Sometimes when I check on them at night, their room is lit up from various lights they leave going as “traps.”  I go around and turn them all off to preserve the batteries since, if there’s one thing we go though more than food in this house, it’s batteries!

Is there a kid alive who doesn’t love binoculars? And these have a RED light, which obviously makes them 100% cooler than any other pair. Plus, they really do work in the dark and the vision is clear and far! I was impressed when I was able to use them for 5 seconds before they were snatched back by four little hands!

And now, a full review from the experts…
