We bought one of these microscopes 5+ years ago, and it still works great. It's so inexpensive that I can let the kids play and investigate freely, but it works well enough to view sets of prepared slides we buy from the science supply store. It's usually easiest for me to set the magnification and position of the slide using the viewer, and then look through the eyepieces. If all you see is a white blur, try moving the slide around - realize that the image is mirrored, so moving the slide to the right moves the image to the left.

My son was SO excited to receive this as a gift. First thing he wanted to open. TERRIBLE product. Read reviews of the other ones(blue and red). DOES NOT focus on anything, and the projected viewer is made from frosted plastic-which means you can't get a clear image on it either. There is no way to adjust the aperture(how much light comes through)! The LED is blinding. Seriously, my son and I both were seeing spots and felt like our eyes were burning(watering a LOT). It's really a shame that ToysRUs still sells this brand's microscope. Clearly from all the reviews, the 5 good ones don't make up for 30+ negative ones. My son was quite lucky in that we had a high school grade microscope from about 20 years ago that we were able to clean up and use. We used the slides that came with this piece of plastic junk because we didn't receive a gift receipt. PLEASE DO NOT BUY! or make sure you keep the receipt to return. Be careful with your child's eyes!!

The plate only adjusted less than an inch. We wanted to observe some of the crystals in our Rock and Mineral study but they wouldn't fit underneath!!!

                      I have always loved science and my child loves science too. My parents bought me a microscope when I was younger and loved it!!! I always by my product at toys r us, I never go anywhere else. I have never had a problem with anything bought there until the purchase of this microscope. The over all quality was horrible. When looking into it the light is so bright you can not see anything. I took this item back. I was very disappointed and so was my child.
