The goggles are lightweight and comfortable. The tech-style battery pack attaches to an adjustable headband. It features impact resistant green lenses.
— According to The Secret Shop owner Simon Phelps, in Portland, Ore.: “Little kids love these. Sure they’re not infrared night vision goggles, but they serve the same purpose, and for the price, who can argue?”
— Nancy Blaise, manager of the Toy Tech Toy Store in Denver, Colo., said this is her #1 spy seller. “More than any other spy toy, this gets kids ‘into’ the role.”

The ultimate spy security system comes with three clamp-on emitter/receiver pods & revealer bottle. The barricade that is formed by lining up the lights from the Lazer Tripwire emitter/receiver pods is invisible to the untrained eye but detectable by an advanced spy who knows the secret of the beam. By spraying a mist of water across its path, the invisible beam illuminates to reveal a bright red line of light. This allows a trained agent to evade the alarm by slithering under or jumping over the active boundary. The beams of the Lazer Tripwire are as safe as a household flashlight.

This essential spy accessory includes case, pen with light, magnification scope & voice recorder. Special yellow-tinted impact-resistant goggles with bright blue LED lights help kids navigate at night while keeping hands free for collecting evidence. The microphone mounted above the ear picks up sound from the distance and amplifies it through the attached ear bud, so approaching enemies can be heard in time to take cover. For the agent who uses the blanket of night to hide his tracks, the Spy Night Patrol-Listener is crucial to evading capture. The Spy Night Patrol-Listener is equipped with a built-in automatic volume-limiting device to soften loud sounds to a safe listening level.
