    "So easy to use, compared to the microscopes we had as kids! One of the things I like best about it is that the light is battery powered, so it is very portable. You can set the focus, then hand it around to the kids, or take it outside, etc. Very nice feature, easy to use, and fun. I got this for my 9-year-old, and she does fine with it by herself, but my 6-year-old really likes to use it too, thought I generally focus it for her."

    "Five stars, would buy it again. Have had this for about a yar. For the price and ease of use, it's been nice to have around the house. Solid enough to feel durable. While some "toys" sit on the shelf forever, at least this one gets pulled down now and then when we need to take a closer look at something. It's also VERY hand to be able to look top-down, and not just through a slide."

    "Worked like a charm! I gave this to my 10 year old son as a gift. Wow!!! He used it for hours and hours and hours! Everyday after school! So did the rest of the family! It came with a lot of very good slides. I purchased extra slides and blank slides to go with it. So we all found cool stuff to make the new slides and had hours of fun looking at the awesome stuff under the microscope!"

    "My daughter has had this for almost a year now. She is 11 yrs old. She is a very active and intelligent girl. She has used it hundreds of times and so has her two younger brothers. I bought some slides with it and those were good, but making our own is the best. We have done all kinds of things. It has opened her mind up to the world that is out there.

    I will be buying more for my two boys."

    "I’m really impressed with the optical quality of this scope. I found myself just as enthralled with the microscopic world as my 10-year-old. We’ve spent hours around the house and yard coming up with different things to look at under the scope. The upper and lower lights and the rest of the accessories make this a real keeper."

    Kathy Allen

    "We originally bought the “AmScope M30-ABS-KT51 51-piece 300x-600x-1200x Metal Frame Kids Student Beginner Compound Microscope Kit” and returned it immediately, and bought this microscope. What a difference! It still comes with a few tools, and extra clear and pre-made slides. Also, the lenses are glass, and the other microscope seemed like plastic."

    Amazon Customer

    "My 6yr old uses this microscope on a daily basis... We couldn’t be more pleased. I was very happy about the fact that the microscope functions in duality by having both a stereo- and compound-setting light for which to observe one specimen in 2 different ways. For a microscope that isn’t very heavy or large, it does the job and we’re very happy that we made the purchase.

    Tamy Amuan

    "Pleasantly surprised at how well this scope works. We had tried the AmScope beginner scope/kit and was very disappointed and returned it. Christmas morning they opened the scope and I installed the batteries. The kids were able to operate the scope with a little help, and soon were finding random things to examine. For elementary school-age kids I think this is a good introductory microscope."
