When I first heard about Jakks Night Vision goggles, I thought it was too good to be true. When I then heard that they were being sold for just $79.99, and as a kid's toy, I certainly thought it was too good to be true. I mean, how many of us, after hours of playing games like Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six, did not wish we could put on our own pair of night vision goggles and start wacking terrorists? It has been a dream of mine, and yours I'm sure, for years -- do not deny it. The thing is, it is one of the coolest gadgets I have seen in a while, so I have to check it out.

The goggles are designed for younger kids, keep that in mind. They had to be adjusted to their largest setting when I first got them. It took a bit of doing to get the three rubber straps to fit my adult size head with all its massive brainpower, but after a few minutes, it was good to go. The next step was to unscrew the battery case and pop in the five, yes 5, AAA batteries that the goggles take.

Once you put in the batteries, put on the goggles, you are ready to power up the unit. Do not forget to turn of the light, though, first. Once you turn on the night vision goggles, it may take a bit of adjustment on both the part of your eye and the goggles' controls before you can see anything. Once you get it adjusted though, you will be granted to the coolest little night vision display you have ever been able to use at home. While the viewing area is only a small portion of your total eye's field of vision (we assume either the US military said no dice on full field of vision, o it was just too expensive), it is more than enough to be an actual, useful, night vision scope. Because of the smaller display, things in the distance are a bit blurry, but let me remind you, folks -- you are wearing night vision goggles!

Jakks even gave us some settings to play with on the goggles in order to make things more interesting. First of all, you can switch between up-close use and further viewing. This adjusts the strength of the infrared beam so that when you only need close-up viewing, you can see things better.

You can also adjust between the traditional green night-vision view, and a black-and-white night vision view. Personally, I preferred the black-and-white version, as it was easier for me to distinguish separate objects.

Finally, Jakks also provided a way for you to not kill yourself when walking around in the pitch black yelling how cool your new goggles are. The right eye flips open so that you can see unobstructed. Remember, only one eye has night vision -- the other is just blocked. This is the eye that flips open so you can glance at your surroundings in-between night view session.

The bottom line is that these goggles are one of the coolest gadgets I have ever had the privilege to test out. Jakks has come up with a serious piece of Holiday Hardware here, and any kid, or kid-at-heart, will get a serious kick out of the Eyeclops Night Vision Goggles. Throw in a price tag of just $79.99, and you have a definite buy. You can even pair these with a Laser Tag set for some serious night-time manhunt games. The Jakks Pacific EyeClops Night Vision Goggles are a must-have Holiday gadget for 2008, hands-down. Look for the goggles Fall of this year!
