  • A. I purchased it for my 12 year old son and he is very happy with it. He also has experience with more advanced microscopes and he really likes this one. It is durable and professional enough to last for years.

  • A. For the price, this thing is great. It's not a toy like many others. I believe its made from cast aluminum and looks and feels like a lab microscope. It will last as long as you don't drop it all over the place. I'm impressed with the quality for the price.

  • A. Our 11 year old daughter loves science too and is really enjoying this microscope (and her parents have had fun with it too). We have looked at her tooth that fell out, jewelry, paper towels, a tiny lightbulb to see if it was burned out, and more. It has a bright adjustable lower light and a pen light for opaque items. The knobs are easy to use to focus the microscope and it has a usb connector to take pictures on your computer. This is a nice microscope, walmart has the best price and it's not toy-ish like many marketed to young people.

I bought this microscope for a Christmas present after I bought a microscope and telescope set from Toys r us and found out that they weren't worth diddly. So I researched microscopes for a long time before deciding on this one. I figured if I bought one for them I wanted the best quality for the price- a low price. I bought it knowing it was on the cheap side, but at least I could use it and it was made by a company who made more than just toys. I am an engineer and used lab microscopes at various jobs and to my suprise this microscope had a very similar quality. I was plesently suprised by the quality and ease of use. It comes in a plastic protective carrying case similar to other tools I have. It also has the option for taking pictures and video on the computer, which I thought was important in case the kids (6 and 8) couldn't pick up looking into the eye piece real easy. They did though, with no problem and so I ended up setting the video capturing up myself. Not the best resolution/clarity with the video part, but better than I expected from the cost aspect. Totally worth the upgrade over the playtoys they have at Toys r us. It looks and feels like one you would have in a lab... only muuuuch less expensive. Good buy.

We looked at a lot of microscopes and purchased this for our 11 year old daughter. This microscope is well-made of sturdy materials. The lenses work great and show lots of clear detail. The focus knobs work well and the microscope was a good deal for the price.

I purchased this microscope for my 12 year old grandson for Christmas. It is very well made (not plastic) and had everything he needed to get started. It is a great microscope for a beginner.

My 9 year old got this for her birthday. At first we were very impressed because it looked like it was nicely built. When we set it up the light didn't work and there was a screw missing that was supposed to hold the pin light. I called the company to let them know I was unhappy and would be returning their product to Walmart. I knew it was not their responsiblity but thought they would want to know the condition we received their product. The customer representative on the phone said, "What do you want me to do about it." and something similar to 'Can you send an email because my writing a little note won't do anything.' I realized that down the road customer service would not be very helpful. Instead of ording a new one we are trying a different company. I felt like a company that cared would have apologized for the condition and would at least taken the model information and store information so they could look into the matter. Walmart however was great. The microscope arrived in a prompt matter and they returned it without any problems. I have always been happy with ordering items from Walmart online.

I was looking for a durable microscope for my 12 year old son and this was a great find. I am a scientist and use microscopes in my research and wanted something similar for him. This is top and bottom viewing so he is able to look at a variety of samples and slides. My biggest concern was looking for a scope that was all metal and this one is but still light enough that he can travel with it when we go out in the field. The stage and fine focus are also durable and similar to a professional scope. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
