I know that's blunt, but the images are completely unacceptable on this microscope. As a child, I had a microscope much like the TASCO I purchased. Now, as a working scientist/laboratory technician with considerable microscopy, I know why I was so unhappy with that microscope. For the same reasons I don't recommend this microscope, because it's difficult to focus and even when focused the images are poor. For an additional 30 dollars, your child could have a microscope that actually works, and might not merely gather dust after the New Year.

The only thing this piece of junk will accomplish is to disappoint a child and discourage them from develping scientific interests. It's useless. Literally. It cannot be used as a microscope.
Either buy a better microscope, like the Meade sold by Amazon, or buy a quality hand-held magnifying glass.

The kit is good enough, but the plastic material from bottom to top including the slides, that is something to note, it is lightweight as mentioned. I did not like the plastic toy in our tables. Anyway great kit for your kids.
