Good for a costume not fighting
My 5yo son was dying to have a green lightsaber, which, after looking around, I realized is pretty rare, so I was happy to find this one for so cheap. It is supposed to be both retractable and electronic, but actually after I installed the batteries, the electronic lights/sound function did not work -- that's why the 3 star rating. My son was still happy with it and I didn't feel like returning it, so we kept it. The plastic of the blade is very thin and is not made for serious sword fighting, more as a costume, which it is advertised as. For $12, it's worth it, not worth more than that.

purchased for a five year old Star Wars fan
I purchased this for my son as a Chanukah present as he wanted a green light saber and this is the only one I could find online. From reading other reviews I was nervous that it was not made very well, but it has survived over a week of constant light saber fights and is still functioning. If you turn the lights off the color on the sword is extremely bright.
