Q & As

John Lewis Metal Detector 2 5 4 4
John Lewis metal detector a great toy for my grandsons but I felt the strength of the detector was rather weak. It would only detect items that were almost in contact with it and would have no effect for something underneath a rug for example 22 May 2014
Disappointing, doesn't work! I bought this for my 6 year old as a birthday present. Unfortunately I didn't read all the reviews but they are all correct. This product doesn't work and I returned it. Very disappointed as I've come to expect a certain standard from John Lewis. 19 March 2014
Loved it. I bought this for my seven year old son, he loves it. He has spent hours of fun playing with it. It's a great size, and really easy to use. 21 January 2014
Doesn't work The instructions for turning it on seem very simple but when followed, the metal detector simply doesn't work and the instructions don't seem to make sense. The instructions state that one needs to rotate the loop clockwise before using but there is nothing to rotate - all parts are fixed and screwed together. It seems the instructions are actually very poorly written and the product doesn't work. I'm keen to know if others are experiencing similar problems. This was bought as a Christmas present for my son and I'm sure JL has sold thousands of these across the country. Very disappointing. 26 December 2013
