PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) -

Our toy testers in Ms. Lappe’s second-grade class at St. Vincent Elementary School tested out the Starwars Levitator, the board game Fibber, a "Frozen" sticker activity book and the ever-popular Shopkins Ballet Collection.

Star Wars Jedi-Force Levitator

It claims to use electrical charges to move objects in mid-air and comes with three different deflectors, but the kids say it didn’t quite hold up.

“If falls apart a lot and easy, and it doesn’t work sometimes,” one boy said.

The boys agree, the pictures on the box were a little deceiving.

“Looked like actual metal and this is just paper metal,” another child said.

Plus, the toy came with another unexpected surprise.

“It like shocked me on the ear,” one child explained.

“Because of the battery part, the electricity, it shocked the kids,” said Ms. Lappe.

The toy testers have some advice for other kids.

“Kind of be like careful with it,” one child warned.

In the end, these Starwars fans give the levitator a B-.

Frozen Sticker Activity Fun

The girls tested out a "Frozen" favorite.

“The best thing is that you get to color,” one girl said.

The Sticker Activity Fun Book has 30 pages and comes with crayons, markers and stickers. While it did provide some fun, the art supplies didn’t quite cut it.

“She was coloring and it like chipped off and we couldn’t color anymore,” one girl said.

The markers ran out and the crayons broke, plus there weren’t enough stickers.

“Three packs and that’s it,” one child explained.

The girls say to bring some backups, especially if you’re sharing with siblings.

“It’s mostly only for one person,” one student said.

Overall the girls gave this toy a D+.

It’s proof that a popular theme like "Frozen" doesn’t necessarily mean a popular toy.

Shopkins Ballet Collection

Shopkins, grocery store-themed characters for girls to collect, have been topping Christmas lists for a while now.

“You can do anything with them,” one child said. “You can be creative. You can imagine stuff.”

Do these mini friends stand out again this year? The toy testers say “Yes!” They’re asking for Shopkins of some kind for Christmas.

The only problem is some girls say they’re a little too small.

“Sometimes you can lose them,” one girl pointed out.

Still, these girls give this Shopkins set A+.

The board game Fibber

“You tell them what it is then you tell them if they’re fibbing or not,” one student explained.

It’s an up-to four-person card game with a twist. As the board says “Stretch the truth and your nose may grow,” making for some pretty silly sights. There are lots of laughs and lots of smiles.

“You can fib with getting away with it, not getting in trouble,” one boy laughed.

The kids have a lot of fun with the game, but they say their teacher did have to help with the instructions.

“It was too long for us,” one child said.

“They absolutely loved it. They asked every day. Can we play the game?” Ms. Lappe said.

These 7 and 8-year-olds give this game an A.
