We home school, and this was recommended to us as a first microscope. It is invaluable. We take it to the park and look at all kinds of things on field trips.
This has inspired hours of child-led learning. My kids have really enjoyed this over the past year. It is portable, and has been with us to the park and on field trips. We have had a great time looking everything from snowflakes to geodes. It is easy to use, and with a little practice we can even take pictures through the lens.
I ordered this scope shortly after my daughter’s third birthday to help feed her curiosity about the world around her. As a laboratory professional who has used microscopes in real-world conditions, I must say I am quite pleased with this product. The optics are excellent, especially considering the price; and the microscope body, while not quite industrial-strength, seems sturdy enough to hold up under normal parent-supervised use by all ages. I also like the fact that the objective light is an LED, which allows for long battery life.
So-called dissecting scopes such as this item are one of the best instruments of scientific exploration that a child can have. The magnification is sufficient to reveal amazing detail in everyday objects (try having a look at your own fingerprint, or the compound eye of any dead bug you find around the house). And the benefit is that any item can be tossed on the stage for quick inspection without having to be cut or compressed onto a slide. A binocular head also improves the experience by providing a true 3D view. In short, I can’t recommend this scope enough, and haven’t seen anything comparable out there for the price!
bought this scope for my 4 year old after buying the duo-scope for my 5 year old. Being a physician, I like love exploring science with my kids. This scope was really surprising. The construction is solid, it is easy to focus, the optics are sound but most importantly, the kids love to use it. Anything can be thrown under the scope and a whole new world is available to them. We have looked at leaves, dead bugs, hair, moss, anything they want. At first I kept it put away for fear they would damage it but it is well enough built, I can leave it out. I often find them looking at all manner of things under it on their own. Highly recommend it.
Got this for my daughter’s 5th birthday and it PERFECT for a budding scientist. We have this set up in our school room and both kids love looking at various things with it. The first week we had it, it was hard to tell who enjoyed it more, me or the kids. Perfect for younger kids, and big ones too.
I’ve had several of my children ask for microscopes for birthdays or Christmas. They’re a frustrating gift to buy because kids don’t want to prepare slides or look at one cell width of an onion. They want to look at things really close up. That’s why this microscope is so fantastic. You can put just about anything underneath it and look at it in detail. And you don’t have to worry about keeping one eye closed (which is harder than you might think for kids to do). Both eyes see through the microscope together. This has been used a million times at our house vs. the traditional microscopes which just sit on the shelf collecting dust because they have such a narrow use. I can’t recommend it enough.
