Pros: Inexpensive, easy to use and light weight. A great starter metal detector for kids with a very modest price tag.
Cons: Cheaply made, flimsy and as basic as it gets for a metal detector. On the verge of being simply a toy except that is does detect shallow metals somewhat with audible beeps.

The Elenco Metal Detector is as basic as a metal detector can be. This detector was designed and manufactured for the sole purpose of being inexpensive, light weight and extremely simple to use. This metal detector makes a great first time metal detector for kids. With its rock bottom price and effective enough sensing coil, it will keep the kids busy for hours while engaging in a great new hobby. Would also make a great beach accessory as it detects well in sand.
