When I first received the Astor Extra Large Electric Swatter , I couldn’t help but laugh and channel my inner child. I could see me running through the house with this tennis racket shaped contraption swatting away at fruit flies and other flying bugs. I absolutely hate wasps and hornets (who doesn’t) and in the summer, they are everywhere. I could even see myself on my back porch swatting away at flying creatures. This is going to become a favorite ‘toy’ of mine.
Yes, it is as huge as it looks. It is legitimately the size of a tennis racket. I love that the electricity is not active on it unless you have the button pressed. The 2 C sized batteries that it requires is included which was nice. That means I could go ahead and start playing as soon as I received it. And I did! And it was fun! And no, I’m not ashamed to admit that my inner child enjoyed herself immensely. I also like that it is a well built product. It is not cheaply made and just holding the swatter, you know that it will last awhile.
I’m actually disappointed that I did not get one to review sooner. This would have come in handy this summer. Michael and I love to leave the back door open for the dogs to come and go from the backyard. However, living in the South means bugs, bugs, bugs. I would have loved to have this to use this past summer. However, we also love leaving the door open during Fall so this will be a huge help with all the bugs that come in. I also cannot stress enough how fun this thing is!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
