Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product; not sure about magnification My son loves the idea of this microscope and is always keen to have a look through it but he gets bored quite quickly because, and this may just be a problem with my particular example, the magnification is rather disappointing. In no circumstances is it anything approaching 8x. It seems more like 1.5x - that is, something that is about an inch across will appear under the microscope to be about 1.5 inches. I don't think there's anything I've missed operationally to increase the magnification; it's just rather underwhelming. But the absence of any similar comments here leads me to believe that it's a problem with my item. I would recommend it to a friend, with this caveat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a whole new world under that lens! I quite like this microscope, its designed and built with round edges, big buttons and knobs, doesn't skid when my preschooler handles it! It has large eye pieces so one's not squinting to look through and the light helps to show the object ever more clearly. Magnification is not too bad, especially for things they love to have a closer look at grass blades, coins, stamps, stickers, lego mini figures, worms, you name it! I always wish these toys came with batteries - so make sure you have 3 AAA, will highly recommend it for little discoverers :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for introduction to science and discovery! A perfect toy for a 3 or 4-year-old! My daughter had a blast finding tons of stuff around our house and our backyard and then looking at it "up close." She especially loved when she realized that the smaller the item was, the more fun it was to look at under the microscope. Great opportunity for discovery and curiosity. (For what it's worth, my 1 1/2 year old also is obsessed with turning the light on and off on the microscope and trying to "peek" under it... he loves it so much that my daughter wanted to know why there weren't two microscopes in the box, so they could both have one.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great purchase to inspire budding young scientists! A few years ago, I bought a different brand of "child" microscope, and it turned out to be WAY too complex--both in terms of assembly and use. Not the case with this product. Assembly is literally as simple as inserting batteries, and my three-year-old was INDEPENDENTLY having a blast in no time. She's examined leaves, coins--even Barbie shoes! Plus, my six year old didn't consider it too babyish to try out, which is a definite plus when you're hoping to get the best use out of a toy and/or educational product in a large family. All in all, this is a great way to get kids interested in science from an early age!
