When researching telescopes for my 7-yeat-old granddaughter, this model was recommended highly. It did not disappoint! She loves the telescope and is learning more about the solar system because the power and quality are so high. I could have purchased a "kiddie" scope but this one will last for many years to come. I highly recommend the Orion Observer.

Bought this for my grand daughter's birthday. She loves it!! It is relatively easy to assemble and use so with a little adult help she really enjoys using it. This one I would recommend.

This telescope is good for spying on neighbors otherwise can't see anything in the sky. Save your money and buy a better one.
