Construction is top notch, completely kid safe. Needs 3 AAA batteries that are not supplied. Slides a bit fiddly to put in, as they have to signal the 'microscope' what audio to play, but after a few tries we got it to work pretty good. Perfect for a three or four-yr-old. Older kids may get more value out of a kid-safe microscope that lets them look at stuff they find, and is half the cost of this one (Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. My First Microscope), but then you do miss out on the audio facts and quiz. Anyway, either one is better than iPad time! Hope this review helps a bit.
I cannot give this one star as the description does state the slides have images. The voice with quiz is a nice touch, has some good information, and is very reactive when the slides are put in place but it would be nice to be able to Mute the voice. The ability to change languages and store the slides with the microscope is nice.
When this was order and I read microscope and I was taken back to the first microscope I had as a kid and was really excited to use this with my son. As we removed the slides I started to tell him to be careful as I remember glass slides being sharp. These slides are images encased in plastic and are safe to handle. Unfortunately this item is not what I was anticipating. I think we could have gotten a View Master viewer and enjoyed the images more.
Know what you are purchasing. I am sure this will be great for younger children.
I bought it for my son for Christmas and I wasn't sure how it would go over... but lo and behold- the kids are both fighting over playing with it constantly. They absolutely love it. The facts are interesting that Bindi recites, the little slide tray is easy for even my 2 year old to use, and my 5 year old enjoys taking the quizzes. He even tells me random interesting facts now and then I know he learned from the toy. So far it's a month after Christmas and they are still playing with it. I do wish more slides could be purchased for it, that's my only gripe.
