FantasticReview by Di
This is such a great toy and a great microscope. Perfect for looking at little insects. I love the fact that you can use microscope slides to see fibres, but also remove them and place the microscope over a little insect without harming it. We looked at a small spider yesterday and my 7 year old was mesmerized (so was I).
This is a fantastic microscope for everyone to carry at all times. (Posted on 17/06/2016)
£40 Microscope in a £10 package!Review by AndyW
This is such a great buy, I got two of these for my kids for Christmas just as stocking fillers and was blown away by the high quality of the image, these things give such a crisp image that I couldn't believe it only cost £10! I collect mineral samples and have never found a decent piece of optics for anywhere near this price point that delivers this kind of result. It even has a built in light and space for standard microscope slides. I would definitely recommend this to beginner scientists and seasoned pros alike!

Definitely my best buy of 2014!
