Duo Scope Starter Kit


Based on our award winning Duo Scope, our Starter kit includes a high quality mini microscope and a kit to start investigating. The Duo Scope Starter Kit has features of the professional brands, such as a proprietary lens coating to improve the clarity of specimens and maintain lens condition. This microscope can view anything through its dual lighting system, originally popularized by our Duo Scope. The bottom light helps with slide views like professional microscopes, while the top light can show off 3-Dimensional objects. Kids can take their microscope anywhere – outdoors, on vacation, or on a hiking trip – and analyze their surroundings in greater detail. In addition to the microscope, this kit comes with a Brine Shrimp Eggs experiment, 3 empty specimen vials, a magnifying glass and more! With a durable model with a long life span, the Duo Scope Starter Kit is the perfect introduction to microscopic study.

    This was a gift for my 8 1/2 year old, and she loves it. She is constantly bringing stuff inside to look at in her microscope. It took her about an hour to get the hang of which magnification and light to use, and how to play with it to find the best view. She’s a pro now after just a few days. It seems hardy. It is lightweight and easy to carry. Even though it is for children, it is definitely a “real” microscope.

    This is amazing microscope for beginners, specially kids. I’m microbiologist and always works with professional microscopes and I saw others microscopes for kids and the quality of image was very disappointed. This microscope was surprising me, because the ocular and lens are good and the quality of image is excellent. I love to see my daughter love the science like me.

  3. Amazon Customer

    Wow, way better than expected. Yes this is a light plastic microscope, but the optics are far better than you would expect. It also comes with specimen jars and sample collection tools, slides and slide processing tools, all plastic of course but a perfect for a child to use. My son is 7, and choosing this over video games and TV?!! The kit also comes with a project and a few specimen slides aside from the blank ones. All around a very complete kit.

    This is a GREAT little microscope. I was a little hesitant to buy it because it was so cheap. I wasn’t expecting it to be much but it’s wonderful. I got it as a present for my twin 8 year olds and they can’t get enough of it. Super easy to use, lightweight, and educational. I also ordered some of the My First Lab slides to go with it and they are great too!

  5. Amazon Customer

    My 9yr old granddaughter was completely enthralled with this gift. I bought the extra slides to go with it. When I called Christmas morning she was busy with this and didn’t even play with her other toys she got. Now she has looked at all the slides, so I’m giving her ideas of other things she can put on the blank slides. Very educational.

    Five stars again and again… this microscope blew my mind. I was expecting a toy, which i mean it is right? But for a “toy” it really does magnify 40x and clearly too! For the price, this is a great deal. Me and my daughter are going to dig up some garden soil and pond water to see what we find. Great for teaching kids about biology.

    This is a Christmas present for my 7 year old grandson, and it appears to be a great little first microscope that he will enjoy. It is well packaged to protect the items and has an easy to understand manual. In addition to the brine shrimp and yeast to observe the manual includes other suggestions for observation.

  8. Amazon Customer

    My little 6-year-old was dying to get a microscope. I was unsure about this, but all of the reviews were so positive that we went for it. For his Kindergarten curiosity, it’s perfect! Even my older girls enjoy viewing bugs’ wings, flowers, coins, etc. Love the above or under lighting option. Pretty awesome for a first-time scope.

  9. Odilbek Yusupov

    My niece is very obsessed with microscope. She loves it and in fact it is a great product for the young students who want to pursue their career in the labs. The quality and the packaging is simply perfect.

    I purchased this for my 6 year old niece, and she loves it! It’s simple and functional and a perfect introduction to microscopy. She enjoys learning about how things can look radically different under the microscope vs her own eyes.
