My 10 year old daugher wanted a microscope for Christmas. I found this to be a great choice considering cost and the total kit inclusive of premade slides. She is enjoying this very much. I did not want to spend a great deal of money and this has satisfied her hunger for science and exploration.We are making our own slides and I really appreciate a gift that challenges her mind and does not require her to be on the computer! We are excited for spring so that she can get outside and create more live slides!
I am wondering whether I might of received a unit that had been previously used by someone. I'm not sure, but while the unit itself is sturdy and robust, mine was delivered with a missing lower halogen bulb! CS promtly sent me another bulb, and when I went to install it, I found the "original" bulb wedged into the space beneath the microscope. Other than that, I am satisfied. Customer Service was great.
