I was pretty excited at first when Hasbro asked me to review their newest toy, the Magic Jinn. The description states, "Can the mystical Magic Jinn read your mind? Talk to it and find out! Think of an animal and press his nose, and he'll guess the rest! Can you outsmart him and win? There's only one way to find out!" This made me think it would be similar to a live magic eight ball possibly. Unfortunately this wasn't the case as the Magic Jinn only guesses the animal you think of and nothing else.
The boys thought he was super cute and they named him "Frank the Cat". Surprisingly Dane was able to get him to guess the correct animal several times but to be honest they preferred more to play with him in the off mode and just as a basic toy. As creative of a design as this was we were very bored with it and not very impressed.
Recommendation: If they would have added a few more features to this little guy I think he would have been a lot cooler and more entertaining to the kiddos. It could just be us though as we did think he looked pretty cool and the idea sounded on the right path!
Giveaway: Hasbro is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers a Magic Jinn of their own!
