    This product has been purchased for my 11 And 8 y.o for Christmas which I know they will love. I would love too see little tykes bring out additional slides that can be used for this microscope and can be purchased in addition to the slides that come with the microscope. I am also a childhood educator and this educational toy will be great for the kids to experience nature when I take it in to introduce them to them to a whole New experience.

    My 5 y/o and 4 y/o love this microscope! Its a fun way to get kids interested in science. Just make sure you have a compatible i-product as I have an Ipod 3rd generation so the app interaction is not fully functional.

    Customer review by Momofweethree

    2.0 stars by Momofweethree

    A regular microscope is too fragile and too complicated for my kids, when I saw this on sale I thought, "awesome, a kid-friendly one they can use!" - But beyond the box, and the few reviews I can find online, I was very mislead by what it really is. This markets itself as a real microscope, but it isn't. It includes a good amount of kid proof prefilled slides, but you are limited to ONLY those slides. You can't look at anything else. It isn't designed to look at anything beyond the included items. OBNOXIOUS child voice (doesn't turn off) encourages you to play and discover. Fab for the prek-1st grade set but LAME for older kids. The app is free but very childish and really limited, it teaches you more about what's on the slides. Not all that impressive for the price. The iToy holders won't hold if you have a gel or hardcase on your iToy and I'm not handing over a naked IPad or iPhone to a 5yr old!! I was hoping this would be a kid-friendly microscope and it IS simple to use but not expandable beyond the pre filled slides. Would be better if you could free play (no voice), fill your own slides. Overpriced for what it is. No real reason to use iToys with this. You can't use your iToys as an extra screen, limited to the viewfinder on the microscope. iToys don't connect, they just lay in a holder for you to play along with the free downloadable app. Given the average attention span of a 4-7yr old, this gets boring fast. Older siblings will find this "babyish".
