TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
The original Spy Net Watch, which was released last year, has now evolved into the Spy Net Video Watch with Night Vision. It starts off as a real watch with lots of traditional watch functions. But when you go into spy mode, it allows you to take up to 2,000 still photos, 20 minutes of video, or three hours of audio. You can take video in a normal mode and see what you're recording, or switch it to spy record mode so no one will know you're filming. There's also a night vision mode that lets you take video in low light. When you're not on a spy mission, you can be entertained with onboard games and unique apps, such as lie detector, bug detector, flashlight, and voice manipulation. For added play, you can go to SpyNetHQ.com to upload your evidence, register your watch, and download a variety of text-based missions. The watch comes with a USB connector that can connect to a Mac or PC.
Why It’s Fun
We were really impressed by the quality of the video and photos taken by the Spy Net Video Watch. This is classic play with a high-tech twist that will appeal to any kid intrigued by spy play. The Spy Net video Watch with Night Vision is sure to inspire all kinds of great pretend spy play.
Who It’s For
The Spy Net Video Watch with Night Vision is for ages 8 and up.
What to Be Aware of
The watch comes with a rechargeable lithium polymer battery that can be charged by connecting the watch to a computer via the USB connector. It takes about two hours for the watch to fully charge, and Jakks recommends charging the watch before you play.
The watch also comes with four AAA batteries, but these are for in-store demo purposes, and Jakks recommends replacing them before you play for best results.
