We got this for our four-year-old as a birthday present. He saw it at Toys r' Us eons ago and never forgot about it. He loves it. He pretends to be an explorer, a jungle man, a scientist, an astronaut, all sorts of stuff. It's a great prop for his imaginary play, and I like that it has the 2.5 magnification with a very easy-to-use focus wheel so he gets the idea of how to maniuplate binoculars. Overall, we are very happy with it.
