Worst. Christmas. Present. Ever. But I told my mother-in-law that before she gave it to Ditz. As a matter of fact I do believe I begged her not to. : ) See what he used to do with our current one is push it out as far as it would go so that he could poke me from his spot on the couch anywhere I was in the room, up to 8 feet away. This new one she got goes 13 feet before "breaking." He can now tap me in the kitchen from the couch. This is the world's worst gift!
