    • Great gift for a scientist in the making (kids)
      Verified Purchase

      Being that I work in a laboratory, and I am used to the high resolution, high-tech microscopes, I personally did not have any use for this beginner microscope, so I only gave it 4 stars--but my teen sister absolutely loved it. It offers an amazing picture when done near a well-sunlit window (it is capable of operating with or without use of the battery), and we were able to observe vinegar eels with very nice detail. It comes with some prepared slides, but the fun comes from making your own. Best present you can get for a child or a teen if you want them to love science.

      This purchase made my daughter very happy. It was nice that the microscope came inside of a case and is portable. The book and all of the other included items made it an easy choice.Since it has glass slides, I would recommend for children 10+.
