Welcome to the hidden world of the microscope. Your new microscope is an instrument with lenses for making very small objects appear much larger so they can be studied. There are millions of tiny living plants and animals that can be easily seen with your microscope. In today’s technological world, every field of science utilizes microscopes. Microscopes are used by biologists for studying microorganisms, by geologists for studying rocks and minerals, by archaeologists for studying ancient artifacts, and by astronomers for studying fallen meteorites.

I'll start out by pointing out that this is a $35 microscope. It has its limitations, and I doubt if this model is in use at the CDC. But for the money, it's an excellent buy.

We got this one for our five-year-old son, who enjoys it very much, and is able to use it. He started out with quite a bit of adult guidance, but he is now able to use it by himself.

As far as I can tell, the optics are quite good. There do appear to be a couple of minor flaws, so that if the microscope is out of focus, some phantom images come into view. But as it is focused, they disappear, and you get a clear image.

From some of the other reviews, it appears that the lamp sometimes fails to work. Ours works much better than expected, but I wouldn't consider the electric light to be critical. The microscope is actually easier to use with the mirror, and you generally get a better image. The trick is to place a bright light in front of the microscope, shining on the mirror. A desk lamp works well. Then, before attemting to focus the microscope, move the mirror around until the light through the eyepiece is brightest. Only then should you begin to focus. Start with the lowest magnification, carefully focus the image, and then carefully move the slide around to center the image. After you have focused it with the lowest magnification, then increase the magnification (without moving anything else), and then repeat the process of focusing. In most cases, it's best to stay with the lowest magnification. But you should always start with the lowest magnification.

If the bulb burns out, it should be possible to replace it at any almost any hardware store. Simply show them the bulb, and they will find one the same shape and size.

I got this microscope and right away was able to look at different things. I even looked at things like bee wings, cricket legs, my mom's hair, my dog's fur, and a flower petal. The pre-made slides that came with it were pretty cool too - I liked the onion cells best. I would highly recommend this microscope for you to buy. One of the things I don't like so much about it is the cover slips for the slides you can make for yourself - I don't understand why they are round, and many of them are kind of scratched.

I gave this to my grandson for his 8th birthday. He immediately used it and we spent part of that day examining various items from sand to blood to insects. It seems sturdy and came with extra blank slides, tools, and a booklet with suggested exercises. It could use a few more prepared slides than came with it for the younger user. At this age he was so eager to use it, he did not have enough patience to read the instructions and make his own slides carefully but still enjoyed the microscope with adult assistance.

My daughter is very excited about the prospect of this product. However, we have used it twice and both light bulbs have blown. I am concerned about the longevity of the item.

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas last year. Within the first hour, it blew a lightbulb. The included replacement bulb lasted about two hours. I called the company and they sent me a new one. This one didn't work at all! And...it took forever to arrive. This is a terrible product and I wouldn't waste my time or money with it.

This should be sold strictly as a toy since it lacks any real scientific value. It is very cheap, mostly plastic and low quality. The optics are horrible and the stage is made of a flimsy plastic. My son stopped using it because he was straining his eye trying to focus and keep things steady. The paint was chipping off around the battery cover, and since it's made overseas, I was also concerned about that. I'm sending it back.
Note: I see this company has 2 different models, and from the pictures and descriptions the microscopes are the same, but with different accesories and a different magnification eyepiece.

I purchased this scope from a local school store as a gift. Within minutes my nephews were asking for my help focusing. I thought the excessive scratches on the lenses and slides were to blame, only to discover the eyepiece/lenses didn't even line up with the hole through which the light is coming through in the platform! What a waste of money. I'm disappointed that quality-control for a company would allow this product to be sold, nevermind made! (The difference between the models manufactured by this company vary only in the even cheaper painted-plastic "accessories" that actually, laughably, are labeled with "Warning: sharp object" labels!) I'll be calling the company first thing in the morning for a refund so I can purchase something that the boys can actually use!

Got this for my son's 8th birthday, he'd been excited to use it, but it came with one light bulb already burned out and the second burned out the first time it was used. I tried to contact the company 3 times for replacement bulbs and only received automated messages saying replacement parts would be sent 5 days after receiving the information from me. That was 2 months ago. We still haven't received any replacement lightbulbs, and we can't get our own because the manual doesn't include information on the type to get.
