Three AA batteries in each will ensure that the sabers light up and then you can swish away to your heart’s content taking your TV screen, lightbulbs and each priceless piece of china with you. Contents insurance not included.

The trouble is, they will invariably run out of batteries mid Kart race and you’ll be left desperately searching for fresh ones inside old TV remotes and that ‘massage’ device your wife keeps.
