This is a pretty cool toy. At first glance, I didn't think it would last very long because it is a foam, flying toy. After charging it, my 6 year old boy has had a surprisingly, long-lasting fun time with it. It has hit the ground very hard and fast, and is still in perfect shape, with no foam pieces broken. One tip to get it to fly is to make sure Raphael is "face down" in your hands, so his back is facing you. To get the propellers to spin, you flip the switch to "on", press the power button, hold it away from your body, and they will start to spin very fast. Overall, I really like how this is a different kind of toy. I especially like the fact that it has not broken after a couple uses, like most other flying toys. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a different, fun, flying toy.
