Top customer reviews
So the 4 year old had very little interest in it.
The slides were not especially interesting or illuminating and do not come with a special case or anything. Needless to say, the slides started getting misplaced immediately and currently, I can't find any.
Here's the fun part. There are not only no extra slides beyond the 10 or so that come with the microscope, but there are no replacement slides at all. I even went to educational insights' website and then called their number and spoke with a representative. I even had the representative confirm it, as some of their responses to reviews are misleading and state stuff like, "If you are missing slides, call our customer service desk."
Nope. That's misleading. There is no point in calling customer service. They do not make replacement slides, and they do not offer extra slides.
I do not think slides from another company would work, and even if you ordered them to try, the sound recordings on the microscope are correlated to the slides offered.
Would NOT purchase again, and I bought when it was in the low twenties. Not sure why price has escalated so much.
