    When you install the batteries it requires the use of a small phillips head screwdriver… So you need a regular screwdriver to make your Sonic Screwdriver work. (And while I was doing this, I actually was thinking to myself, “Hmmm, this really could be more sonic!”)

    I’ve had this thing for about a year now, I use the regular pen nib quite often and it’s currently not showing signs of running out of ink. The nib with the UV ink, unfortunately was lost.

    That is the biggest issue I have with the item. The instruction pamphlet that comes with it says that you can order replacement nibs from customer service. You can not currently just order replacement nibs from Amazon, nor are they currently listed in the “Spare Parts” section of the Character-Online customer service website. (Though there are spare Dalek parts which is kind of awesome.) You have to call the company’s customer service department which is in the UK. So unless you want to call long distance and pay shipping from the UK for pen nibs? Do not loose them. (This may change, I hope it does.)

    Onto the good stuff!

    I really love owning this thing. A few days ago I had a blackout at night and (due to a recent move) I couldn’t find my flashlight, but I was using this thing to make some notes. So I used it to find my keys and my wallet to go out and buy a proper flashlight and some candles. Doing that was more fun then I should probably admit in a public forum. Secondly, the UV ink is tangentially educational. Your child likes Doctor Who, you get them this pen, they write secret messages on the psychic paper and say “Cool! How does that work?” They then become interested in what UV light is, learn all sorts interesting stuff about wavelengths and “Yay! Science is fun!”

    If you’re a cosplayer through, that’s not really your concern. From close up and far away it looks good, it has the right moving parts, lights up and makes the noise. It comes with batteries. I don’t know what more you could ask for.

    Just don’t misplace the pen nibs.

    Go forth and Google, and check it out: This is the toy that was made from the prop that so impressed the prop that they switched. Yep, the one on TV is a version of this toy, recast and hand-finished.

    Too much fun.

    I have been stopped once while flying, and the TSA guy said, “What’s this?”

    “It’s a sonic screwdriver… And a pen.”

    “Cool.”

    I purchased the Sonic Screwdriver as a Christmas gift for my 7 year old daughter. It was a huge hit! She was more excited about it than any of her other gifts. My wife and I were also very impressed with the quality of the product. It is very well made and came with its own batteries. I must admit that with the interchangeable ballpoint pen and invisible ink heads I really would love to get this as a gift myself. It is so great to see a toy that is so well made. Doctor Who fans at any age will love this product.

    It doesn’t fit the screws exactly, but it’s close. If you apply pressure and are very careful, you can get the screws in and out without slippage.

    This is the same tool included with the replacement Nintendo DS Lite shell I just finished installing. The new shell was great, but this tool is JUNK. If you can successfully remove and reinstall the screws on one unit, one time, without stripping the heads and/or the tip of the tool, count yourself lucky.

    This is the same model tri-wing that I had the misfortune to buy. Completely stripped two screws immediately. Absolute junk. Avoid
