“A superb way to introduce young children to the use and usefulness of a traditional microscope.”Parent Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“The magnifying power of this microscope is 2x. It is most definitely NOT a toy – it’s a genuine microscope of the type which lets you look AT not through objects. (ie: no slides). So why have I awarded it 5 stars? I bought it for our granddaughters, the eldest of whom (just turned 5) has been showing a real interest in the natural world and the how and why of plants, seeds, insects etc. She has used a magnifying glass and thoroughly enjoyed that – but just as recorders don’t naturally move on to any other instrument such as reed instruments, so magnifying glasses don’t, of themselves, move on to anything other than larger magnifying glasses. A main point about this GeoSafari microscope is that it IS a microscope. It has the traditional knurled wheel which lifts and lowers the barrels.It works in EXACTLY the same way as a traditional stereo microscope which lets you look AT objects, rather than THROUGH them (such as when using slides).
When in use, even when looking at a small insect in a small container, you can concentrate on looking as opposed to when you use a magnifying glass and have to also concentrate on keeping it still and steady.The GeoSafari leads on naturally to the use of more advanced microscopes, whether stereoscopic or slide-based.”
