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 first time using the microscope, it was very exciting for the boys! it was played with all night, the images were clear! after day three, everything came to a blurr, tried cleaning the lenses, no luck! It's great for very small children aged 6-8.I wouldn't recommend this for older kids, or science clubs for teens!

                I am shocked this product received ANY favorable reviews! My son is 5 so I didn't want to spend too much money on a microscope, but I suppose you get what you pay for. I echo all other sentiments expressed in the other reviews. My experiences were that it was very difficult to get true focus and we were not able to get good use out of it.

                I wouldn't recommend this product.

                  I would not recommend that you purchase this microscope and it really doesn't even work well at all. It's difficult to see anything through either the eyepiece or the larger viewing screen. All of the components are plastic and it lacks any kind of precision needed to magnify objects well.

                  Love the set, nice variety of items included, too bad the microscope works so poorly.

                  We husband spends much of his day looking into a microscope. Thinking we probably didn't need to spend a ton of money to get one for our 7 yr old, I helped her select a mid-priced option. Only problem is, you can barely bring something into focus to look at it.
