Item arrived pretty fast! The quality of the microscope is just as expected...no problem and my son and granddaughter spend quality time learning lots of new things.... Great price!!!
This is a great starter microscope for kids interested in science. The only thing is you have no light it uses the reflection from a small mirror. That can be a little frustrating for both kid and adult. But everything else is great.
My almost 8 year old daughter loves this microscope! It is easy to use and I love that it has its own carrying case to store it in. I did buy a seperate set of slides with samples on them for her to look at because only a few were included. This is a good quality microscope for your young learner!
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.
