I got this as a treat for my son who hates doing school work. He was so excited to play with it he finished all his school work with no complaints. It's easy to use. Comes with a charging cable so no batteries needed. It does kinda go high for him and a little hard to get a hang of at first but he is slowly getting better. With practice any age can use one of these. He especially likes using it at night with the lights. It makes it soo much easier for him to find when he loses it. Highly recommend this for anyone and everyone.
