Learning Resources Prepared Slides Combination Set, 48 Specimens provides young scientists the opportunity to view the world in a new and different way. For a reasonable cost ($16 for me...) I'm able to share something fun and interesting with my daughter which elicits "look at this Mom..." and "what do you think a 'blank' looks like under the microscope?"

Upon close examination these are glass prepared slides. Originally I thought they weren't, but after using them a bit I noted that there is a lightweight cardboard cover over the slide to identify the specimens on each slide. Not 'excellent' slides with regards to clarity, but certainly a great starter set: easy to use, simple things to view under any magnification.

In all you receive two boxes (set one and two) which include samples labeled as follows.

-Animals: cat hair, canary feather, dog hair, sheep hair.
-Pollens & Spore: tulip pollen, leaf spore, pine tree pollen, orange pollen.
-Tiny Creatures: common red sponge, angora rabbit hair, ant, mouse fur.
-Textile Fibers: panya, nylon, wool, handmade paper.
-Insects: dragon-fly wing, worker-bee wing, bee antenna, bee abdomen.
-Plants: stem of corn, leaf of nerium, onion rind, silver berry scaly hair.
-Pollen & Spore: pollen of lily, sunflower pollen, bottle brush spore, fern spore.
-Tiny Creature: plant louse, fruit fly, shrimp egg, silk worm larva (moth)
-Textile Fibers: hemp fiber, silk stuff, cotton fibre, bemberg.
-Insects: leg of butterfly, wing of butterfly, wing of locust, let of honey bee.
-Plants: pine wood, camellia leaf section, bamboo shoot, sponge gourd.
-Animals: goldfish scale, hare hair, camel hair, feather fowl point.

Couldn't wait to get these, but my daughter and I were very disappointed with them.They're dusty and don't have enough variety.

Who wants to see camel hair, dog hair, cat hair, sheep hair, mouse hair, etc., if there's no real distinction between them?

Also the insect slides consisted of bugs that weren't flattened properly, so what you get to see is a lump that's supposed to be an ant, another lump that's a fruitfly, and so on.

How hard is it to lay the ant flat on the slide? If it's hard for Learning Resources, they shouldn't be in the business of making slides.

I feel completely ripped off, and I feel bad that my kid doesn't get to enjoy what could've been an awesome educational experience.

I was pleasantly surprised with the specimen especially after reading some of the reviews. The specimen are made well, were not dusty, boxed well and labeled nicely. I found that some people did not care for some of the slides. I thought all of them were incredible!! All the hair slides do look different, not all the same as someone stated in their review. If you have a duo-scope microscope (I have a My First Lab Duo-Scope - Love it!) that allows you to view the slides with light from above and light from below you will see major differences in detail. If you look at the slides with the light from below, some look a bit boring. But, if you use the light from above the slides the detail is amazing. My husband and I checked out all the slides before the kids and we were amazed! Even the hair samples looked great. We especially loved the ant slide, what detail!!! I think that the differences in what other reviewers saw have to do with the microscope being used.

The 48 specimens come in two boxes of 6 slides each which are 6 different categories. Each slide contains 4 specimens.

Great for instructional purposes, a good variety of objects, well-mounted, but the slides are quite dusty. Each specimen looks like it's floating in outer space, surrounded by a field of stars. They were probably created in an environment with poor air quality.

I was a little hesitant to purchase this product after reading some of the other reviews; however I was delighted with the product after it arrived. The samples are good, great variety, and no issues with them being 'dusty'. I would definately recommend these slides to others for the purposes of fun and education.

If you are looking for prepared slides to view under moderate magnification with a microscope, these slides are not for you. They are made by scotch-taping large specimens onto a glass slide. Since they are not thin enough to transmit light, they are more suitable for a dissecting microscope with top illumination. The Konus brand is much better quality.
