    Fun for my son, but quality not the greatest

    My 7-yr old son received this pocket scope. The pocket clip fell off almost immediately, but the telescope / microscope component of this pen has held up for a couple weeks now. He enjoys playing spy games and has added it to his spy toy collection. It doesn't seem like the sturdiest toy, but it's held up thus far, in terms of use and enjoyment. However, it's more of a novelty toy. The pen can't be focused, so the microscope component of this only works if you put something on the table and put this directly on top of it. You could really only look at a dollar bill, or insect wing, or something very flat like that, so it has limited usefulness. The telescope end of the pen also does not focus, but it seems OK for looking at things that are far away. My son would give this 5 stars for fun, and I give it 3 stars for quality, so we compromised at 4 stars. My son received this as a product tester, in exchange for an honest review. This opinion is all our own.

    My child liked product, but more for the telescopic features. He never really figured out how to make it work as a microscope, and neither could I! It worked fairly well as a pocket-sized telescope and we were able to see leaves at the tops of very tall trees. Anything we tried to view using it as a microscope was blurry and out of focus no matter what we tried. It's not the most durable item and broke relatively easily, despite trying to be careful with it. So, fun at first with limited activities, but not designed well for microscope features or to hold up with a careful 7-8yo's play.

    I asked for a spy glass for Christmas and received this. From the get go, it was iffy. It was out of focus and needed lots of cajoling to see anything and even when it would "work" the image was grainy/fuzzy. Closer inspection revealed that the internal components were dirty. I screwed off the back viewing piece, gathered everything together after the 5 or 6 pieces inside came spewing out, wiped them with a cloth for cleaning glasses and reassembled the lot (several times until it was correct). This fixed the issue but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Dirty optics, regardless of the price tag is weak. Oh, and the clip stinks. It bent and broke after clipping and unclipping it from my rucksack 10 or 12 times.

    I received this product for my son in exchange for an honest review. He was very excited to try it as soon as it arrived. We got it out of the packaging and I noticed there were no instructions other than a few pictures on the back. The telescope end seems to work ok. We could not figure out how to see anything through the microscope end. I did turn the tube a little, but feared it might come apart after reading other reviews. It seemed to bring things into focus a little more but not enough to see details on small objects. My son had fun with the telescope end but was frustrated with the microscope end.

    It didn't come with any instructions, so it was a bit confusing at first, we were able to figure out what side to look thru by using the picture on the package. It works ok as a telescope for far away, but the microscope part my kids couldn't figure out how to see anything up close, it was all a blur. It was tricky for them to figure out how to focus (8 yo girl, 6 yo boy), eventually they gave up. We have a big backyard, so it was fun to look at things far away, but eventually they became frustrating with the lack of focus they could control and cast it aside.
