Spy Gear - Top Secret Mission Review

A few weeks ago we received a package from the postman - a very special package.

Wrapped in black paper with TOP SECRET branded across it the boys couldn't wait to open it up.
Inside we found a secret agent welcome letter outlining our mission - to test and review the range of SpyGear gadgets and see if they passed the test to enable us to become top secret spies!

Spy Gear from Spin Master make a range of fantastic spy kit from the spy essentials to under cover surveillance tools to allow you to become real spies in your own home.

The quality of the Spy Gear is amazing and we have been putting each item through rigorous testing over the past few weeks and we want to share our thoughts with you all. If you have a budding spy then do look out for Spy gear products I am certain they will be a big hit.
