Brilliant first microscope for budding scientistsThis microscope is really easy to use. The big eye pieces and easy to turn dial make it simple for my 4 year old to work herself and once she got the hang of what it meant to focus it she was fine to use it by herself. Since having the microscope we have enjoyed finding new things to collect to look at and investigate. It has given a new layer of fun to our daily outings, my daughter really enjoys looking for new things to take home to look at under the microscope. The magnification isn't great but it is enough to be able to get a closer look at things and start the idea of exploring the world from a different perspective, the light helps to get a better picture.

A perfect toy for a curious childWe've had so much fun with this. My daughter is 3 and loves nature. We took these to the woods and looked at so many bugs and leaves under the microscope, she found it fascinating. They are really easy to use, with big eye pieces and a large dial on the side to focus with. It doesn't have a huge magnification but I really don't think it needs to for this age, any closer would have properly just confused her. Its very robust which it needs to be for any 3 year old. It also has a light which is turned on and off by the white button at the front - again easy for her to do herself , it has been left on numerous times and I still haven't had to change the battery. We also used it to look at lots of things at home, myself and her 5 year old sister have found it just as fun. This is a perfect toy for a curious child (and adult!!).

Perfect sized microscope for little handsThis is the perfect first microscope for toddlers/preschoolers. Both my 3.5 year old and 5 year old couldn't wait for their turn to look at things up close. I love how even the hand grip is perfect for their little hands and the LED light and magnifier helps for them to examine different things closely that they found around the house. They really enjoyed looking at their rock collection using the microscope and they mentioned how much clearly they can see using the microscope. With the weather (hopefully) warming up soon, we plan to go on a nature walk and collect some things that they want to look closely using their new microscope. The microscope itself is very durable and high quality and even though my 3.5 year old has been a little rough with it, it still works perfectly. I love that my kids are learning about science without even realizing it! I love getting not only my kids educational toys but I also try and buy educational toys for other kids' presents. This would be the perfect birthday and/or christmas gift and I love how it comes in two different colors.
