ThinkGeek Minecraft Color Changing Potion Bottle
Made by: Think Geek
Best place to buy: Amazon
My rating: 95 /100
The Minecraft color changing bottle Lights Up and Switches Between 8 Different Colors and is an Official Licensed Minecraft Merchandised product.
This Potion bottle is a shatter-resistant bottle and seems like it’s been picked out of the actula game itself!
This is an official Minecraft merchandised item and is a great addition to any child’s Minecraft kit.
The Potion bottle comes in eight different colors:
indigo, light blue, cyan, green, peach,yellow, red, and white.
Just by giving the bottle a gently tap will make the potion bottle change between the colors that will keep the kids entertained as the carry on with their creative play.
I’ve rated this 95/100 as it is only a light up bottle but to a child it is so much more with their vivid imagination it can be an important accessory in their array of toys to unleash that imagination that is so wonderful to watch in our children.
The potion bottle has an inbuilt timeout switch that is timed for three minutes. This is designed to preserve battery life. It just needs a quick tap to turn it on again although there is also an on and off switch which can be found on the bottom of the bottle.
The bottle requires Two AAA batteries that are not included, these power the lights.
The bottle is 7″ high and 4 3/4″ wide with a depth of 2″ and weighs just 10 ounces.
Benefits of owning a Light Up Potion Bottle
As like any toy on the market we want it to make our children happy as they all like different things.
For the children who like Minecraft is is great that so many items from the game are now readily available in toy form for them to play with as this gets them of the computer and gets them playing and using the toys to enhance yet more imagination.
I keep bringing imagination up as I think it very important that a child keeps this for as long as possible and that is why most the majority of things I review are going to help kids creative sides.
My kids when they were little were scared of the dark for example and I used to give them a bottle of water with a little cordial juice. This was their magic potion that would protect them in the darkl and it worked brilliantly.
This Light up Potion bottle really appeals to me and I wanted to share this with you incase your children have the same problem. My sister bought one for my 7 year old nephew and it has helped him with the dark as he feels protected as he pretends to drink the super juice that makes him invincible just like the magic potion in Asterix!
Who’s the Product For?
The product states on the packaging that is best suited for child from six and above due to the item containing small parts so definitely not for anyone aged three or less! On the Amazon reviews some children are aged 4 so its a judgement call for the parent however I would go with what is advised on the packaging.
So ThinkGeek Minecraft Color Changing Potion Bottle is an ideal collectors item for any Minecraft fan of suitable age. I think this would make a great present for for a Minecraft fan and also a good solution to any child scared of the dark,
What I don’t like
There are a few things that could be improved on this product and the main one is the timeout switch. The Three minute cut off time is too short and should be around five minutes to allow for more time for a child to fall asleep for example as they will get disturbed by moving to switch it back on.
Another improvement they could make for the next edition is one that makes sounds like actual potion swishing around in the bottle, that would be very cool!
However these cannot take away the fact it is still an ideal present for a child as this is just an observation from an adult not how a child would see it.
Would I buy it?
The answer to this question is yes I would as the benefits out weigh the negatives and I am buying it for a child not me or another adult. They will use their imagination differently to us and it will become an important part of any game they play not just in Minecraft.
It’s all about seeing that little smile and watching them play and have fun at the end of the day.
