Cheaply made, kids love it anyway.
on December 29, 2014
I bought this with the expectation that it wasn't going to be top of the line. And i was right. It is cheaply made and the construction is poor. The eye piece wobbles so it is difficult to focus on the specimen slide. Once you do get focused the eye piece shifts and you lose sight of the specimen. The exposed wire leading to the light source is also a concern. All that being said my daughters love it. They haven't stopped using it since Christmas morning. For my girls, these issues are minimal, they love the exploration of their world around them.
