You can read the rest of my review on my blog as well as see pictures. I tried to download pictures and couldn't. I was very very impressed with this product. [...]
What a great gift idea for kids. Their natural curiosity and this cheap Microscope might be all that's needed to spark a young person's interest in science and nature. Would make a great prize or reward, too.
My parents bought me a cheap toy telescope and later a cheap microscope when I was a kid and it did indeed spark a lifelong love of science and nature. Looking back, I can't believe how many fun hours I had with those two "toys." At the very least it might give 'em a new appreciation for the mystery and magic in the natural world around them.
Keep one handy, use it yourself and if your child or grandkid (or any young person) shows interest -- give it to them and get another. At this price, hard to go wrong.
Worst case, you have a fun toy for yourself. ;)
We haven't used the slides yet but found just hold it up agains a shirt, the box it came in, skin, hair, and other random things were a lot of fun and educational. We are going to get one fore my nephew as well.

It works better than I expected. The image is sharp and lit fairly well. It's just a tiny bit on the dim side. I have no issue focusing at any magnification. Read morePublished on March 9, 2013 by figuy
