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.
