They are very solid, extend smoothly, and actually work!

Don't plan on opening and closing the telescopic parts too often as it doesn't do this smoothly and the end cap or "eye piece" falls off easily.

I did not have huge expectations for this piece when I bought it; for six dollars, a couple of cheap, blurry plastic lenses and a brass-tone body was all I expected. I bought this as a gift for an imaginative six-year-old, and it didn't need to be anything serious.

When it arrived, the front "lens" had fallen out inside the body of the "telescope." I unscrewed the front to put the lens back in position, and found that is was just a flat piece of glass that in my case was cut too small to stay in place. The back "lens" was the same.

Flat glass =/= lens, folks. This telescope-like object has no magnification, and offers a better view if you remove the two pieces of blurry glass.

I understand that this is supposed to be a costume piece. It didn't have to do much to live up to my expectations, and 3x as advertised isn't much. But it doesn't do anything at all!

From the product description:
"Galileo is credited with inventing the first refracting telescope. Through his understanding of how light passes through a lens, he was able to construct a device that focused on an image and enabled the user to see an object as though it were brighter, clearer or closer.

The magnification of this brass telescope is 3x."

WRONG. The magnification of this brass(?) telescope-like-object is 0x. Suckers.

If you buy this, realize that you will have to have the imagination of a six-year-old to get your money's worth.

I first saw mini brass telescope necklaces which could extend at a festival, selling for $30. I was tempted to buy one, but my friend dissuaded me, saying they could probably be found cheaper elsewhere. I looked up the necklaces on Etsy, but they were selling for about $30 as well.

However, I found the mini spyglass here. The telescope extends smoothly from about 1" to 3". The brass is a tiny bit discolored, but it makes it look antique.

I hooked the loop on a brass chain and made a necklace, perfect for gifting to my friends at a more affordable price. It would probably also make a really cute keychain.

This telescope can be worn on a necklace, is retractable, and a really cool working telescope. If you wanted to use it as an opera glass or at a sporting event it would serve that purpose as well.

I ordered up three of these to give out as prizes during an orienteering event I'm putting on for some local geocachers. I was looking for things that would be of decent quality, decent price, and be things that folks would be happy to win. This item scores on all three. They are very solid, extend smoothly, and actually work! Though 3x magnification isn't all that strong! The lenses are ground well, and there is no distortion. I was kind of expecting them to be a bit flimsy, but they are fairly substantial for their size. I may set them up with lanyards before giving them out. They'd make for a very nice necklace. Its always nice when you buy something online and then it exceeds your expectations. It didn't hurt that delivery was earlier than projected, either. I'd buy this again from this seller.

Although this is considered a toy it is metal and well built. Magnification is not much but that it works at all at this price is a plus.

It was a present for my girlfriend she loved it definitely and I thought it is pretty cool but it look kind of big to wear on a necklace so if you were thinking of it here goes my ten cents.

I was looking for something simple and appropriate for Steampunk cosplay, and saw one of these selling at a convention, for quite a bit of money. I did some investigating, and lo and behold I found it for a much better price here. I just got it in the mail today and I love it. For about $4, I knew I wasn't going to get anything fancy. However, it expands smoothly, and (to my surprise) actually magnifies things, albeit not very much. It's cute and interesting, and I didn't have any problem with the lenses. I'm satisfied with the overall quality of this product.

Product is cute. It's very difficult to open & close. The ring fell off immediately but I was able to reattach it. It does magnify but 3" is tiny. My 4 year old loves it, and is unaware that it's supposed to collapse, so the extreme stiffness is ok. Definitely not a serious toy. Also it came pre-tarnished.
