They are the best. I got them for Christmas last year, kind of a gag gift, best gift ever! Also what came in handy was all the crank stuff-lanterns, flashlight and radio. Thank goodness I have a son who into gadgets.

This past Monday, around 5:30 PM Tippy and her fish and I lost our electric and we just got it back today, around 2:00 PM today. I was very worry about the fish dying since the filters and the heaters were off and the water was cold and dirty.
