This is a great little Microscope. I bought it for my 5 y.o. and he loves it. The only draw back is I wish it came with more preprepared slides it can be hard in the middle of winter finding things to put under it to look at.

The microscope worked really well in view-screen and microscope modes. However, the focus adjustment stripped its plastic thread very quickly, leaving it useless. Very disappointed, because it worked so well previously. Can we get spare parts anywhere?

    Comments about Toys 'R' Us Edu Science Quick-Switch Microscope (Blue):

    I bought this product for our homeschool and I'm glad I didn't read the reviews first! I think that most of the people that complained that it doesn't work, just don't know how to use and focus a microscope. We have had no trouble focusing and the viewer works great for my little one who can't look through the eyepiece yet. Lovin' IT!!!!

      This is a piece of junk, received as a gift. I cannot even tell the person who gifted with good intensions. Reading through the reviews, it seems like most of the people writing the review received this item as gift. Do not waste money on this junk. Completely useless item.

              I got this for my son for Christmas and it is a complete waste of money. I wish that I had looked at the reviews first. We haven't been able to get anything into focus through the eyepiece or the view finder. I am extremely disappointed in this product.

                  Microscope looked good on box. Price was good on box. What came with it looked good. Thing is though, what's "IN" the box doesn't function.

                  You might get a cloudy shadowy image through the view finder...if you're lucky. If you try to look through the microscope part all you will see is a bright light and nothing else. Oh, you will get a headache too.

                  My daughter soooo wanted this thing to work, she gave it every effort. Not to be though.

                  Do NOT waste your hard earned money on this product...seriously !!!

                    My 6 year old son received this for his birthday and was VERY excited to use it. After 30 minutes of struggling with it we were only able to get a hazy image on the external viewer. Viewing through the eyepiece gives you nothing but a bright light, a headache and a strong feeling of intense rage. My son did take the disappointment in stride and said, "At least it's better than getting poked in the eye!" I can agree with that but it is a VERY close contest. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

                          This was just awful. 8 year old son was so excited to get a microscope and maybe it's our fault by trying to 'cut corners' by not spending hundreds on an adult-level microscope, but it doesn't negate how awful this is. Toys R Us should not even sell something this bad. This is dollar-store quality. A cardboard box would give better magnification. Just because something is for children doesn't mean the quality should be abysmal, especially when it's advertised as educational. How can this be educational when it doesn't even work? Unfortunately it's too late for us to exchange or get a refund so it'll likely be going in the garbage because it's too awful to even inflict upon another innocent child.

                          Bottom line, parents..if you want to get a microscope for your little ones be prepared to shell out a fortune because trying to save a little money ends up in fecal pieces like this 'unit'.

                              Bought this item thinking that it will be good for my 6 year old daughter. But it was not at all working and not able see anything different other than the white light, no matter what ever focusing you do. Then I checked the reviews and came to know that most of the users rated very poorly.
