    The set was purchased for a 10 year old girl and she is delighted with it. The body looks to be metal but is actually plastic. The scalpel looks like a real scalpel but is very dull. Not completely childsafe, but not a real scalpel in any way. It is a good inexpensive microscope to interest children and not too much of a loss if it gets broken.

    I just wanted to get back to you, I have forwarded your review to the manufacturer and am waiting for their response. This item is currently sold online with almost every major retailer and has rankings between 1 star and 5 stars. There is a mixed response. I will get back to you with any additional information shortly

    You get what you pay for with this microscope. It says that it magnifies up to 900X, but the resolution is terrible. It is also very light, and the look/feel of it is very cheap. I wish it came with more prepared slides as well. However, it is a kids' microscope and only cost $20. I just thought that a microscope with the Smithsonian name on it would be a little better quality that it is.
