This is a great introduction to microscopes and how to use them. However, it only has 1 slide set of 12 slides, all insects, and you cannot buy additional slide sets. Also, the slides are pictures which is okay for younger children but you need to develop more slides of items other than insects...flower petals, corn husks, wheat...have some plant slides, household item slides, etc.

Buy with caution

This is a neat toy. The slides contain photos and not real specimens which is okay. My daughter is enjoying the lessons learned, although one of the slide quiz answers is wrong. ...Read complete review

This is a neat toy. The slides contain photos and not real specimens which is okay. My daughter is enjoying the lessons learned, although one of the slide quiz answers is wrong. (We looked it up on the internet to confirm the answer).

BIG CON...you cannot buy additional slides. At least none that I can find after searching the internet. Once my 6 year old goes through these slides (which will happen in under a week) she will probably become bored with it.

            Are there more slides for different bugs that you can buy as a kit? I really like the product but wish the slide holding container was made of stiffer plastic and easier to open and close for little hands. other then that I am happy with this item as a gift.

                  My daughter used her microscope for 15 minutes and now the light won't turn on. She is very upset! I don't see any way to get inside to replace a bulb or anything either. Very disappointing.

                  I bought this microscope for my five and three year old sons for Christmas. They really enjoyed playing with it and its well made. Huge problem however, you cant buy additional slides for it. You get twelve bug slides and once they go through them a few times they are completely done with it. Would be an exceptional toy if you could buy all different types of slides. Otherwise, its only good for a few hours of education and fun. We are disappointed!
