The authentically-styled torch just screams "adventure" and is perfect for indoor use, or those backyard explorations that we tend to enjoy here at home. If I were a kid, I can guarantee that I'd be out pretending to be INDIANA JONES, roaming the darkness hoping to avoid snakes as I did my best Han Solo Harrison Ford impression.
Simple, sturdy and overall a good design, the torch features a realistic flickering light that's powered by a pair of AA batteries. Complete with a mountable wall bracket and "rope" (it's molded plastic), the torch can, indeed be mounted on a wall for fun at a moment's notice, which is really handy if those bedroom monsters happen to show up.
The only thing I'm not fond of is how the switch works. To turn on the torch, you simply twist the flame, but if you go too far, it can open up as if you were doing a battery change. Far from a deal-breaker, but just a little bit of Rock Father examination.
Overall, a 4-star toy that I highly recommend (and the kids do, too!).
