Purchased this for my 8 year old daughter for Christmas. My husband put it together flawlessly, but the problems began when we tried to use the telescope. No matter what we did, we just could not focus in on anything. My daughter was so disappointed. We returned the item within a week of purchasing and ordered a different brand.

      My 6 year old grandson wanted the telescope to look at the moon. After putting it together we could not view anything. To many parts. Don't know if when I return it, should I try the next expensive model.

      My son was very excited about the product but when we assembled it and took it outside to see the night sky we found we could see the stars better without it. Product very sensitive to movement . It's just a fun toy.

        Built well so it seems that it will last a long time. It is not the highest quality, but our four year olds get the idea. Good purchase.

          Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science Astro Precision 600 Telescope:

          It was an okay product. It was hard to assemble as this was my first time assembling a telescope, instructions weren't very clear. Once it was put together and we attempted to find the moon, it was quite challenging and frustrating. The laser that comes with it, is not accurate at all. You have to point it to the top and to the left away from the object you are trying to locate. Then you when you have finally located what you want to look at, for example the moon, and want someone else to take a look, the whole barrel falls down!!! You could go somewhere else and pay the same amount for a better telescope! NOT WORTH THE PRICE!

          Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science Astro Precision 600 Telescope:

          My 5 year has been saving for a telescope and we thought this would be better than a beginners telescope. It's very exciting looking for birds in trees during the day but trying to focus on the moon or stars at night is challenging. As soon as I get it dialed in and have my daughter take a look, the whole barrel of the scope is falling down. It's very small slow movements but when looking at the stars it's like moving the thing miles away. That is very frustrating. It seems to need some sort of tension screw or something to adjust that piece but there isn't. Also, there is no lock on the center swivel so the slightest tap and you're starting all over again. We are wishing we would have saved a while longer and bought the pricier model.

            My 9yr old wanted to see the moon. So I took it a step further and purchased a telescope. To my surprise it was relatively easy to set up and use. We were able to see the textures in the moon. So cool.

                  The telescope is "OK". I have only managed to see the moon with this and the magnification is enough that you can start to see some of the detail. It is pretty hard to keep the telesccope still when a child is looking through it (so if I find something which takes several minutes) it is frustrating when they lean on it or touch it at all which moves it and have to start again...

                  I was Dissapointed when we looked through the eyepiece and realized how difficult it was to view objects that were not that far from us. My 9 year old daughter really wanted to discover constellations with me the day she opened her gift. It was impossible to find just one star. We tried viewing from her bedroom. It wasn't working for us. I explained that we would need to go outside to view. Single digit temps with a -20 below windchill kept us from going outside. I think we would have better viewed the sky's with a pair of binoculars.

                  I would not recommend this product.
