Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Keychain – Donatello

I got this for the ridiculously cheap price of $0.65 on clearance.  The keychain is much too big to be actually used outside of sheer amusement.  Each of the four turtles has their individual keychain, and the basic idea is that utilizing a knob on the side you’re able to have your character train via attacking a dummy.  It’s almost as lame as it sounds, but thanks to the rebirth of this legendary series we’re enjoying a whole slew of new Turtles merchandise.  The package artwork is cool, an awesome picture on the front, and some undeniably retched promotional text on the back.  You’re urged to master the Turtles’ skills of stealth yourself from operating this little arcane attraction.  The overall design of the keychain is pretty neat.  There are some great T.M.N.T. stickers and the training dummy is a nice touch.  Donatello looks really, really incredible… except for his teeth!  Wow, he looks quite bizarre with these teeth monstrosities, and for being supposedly the smartest Turtle, he should have a better grip on dental hygiene!  Overall, I can’t complain, due to the cheap price.  It’s a somewhat weakly designed gadget, and only wholly necessary to pick up for hardcore Ninja Turtles enthusiasts or as a gift for a younger child to keep them temporarily entertained.

Overall Grade: B+
