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?

Don't waste your money

Best Uses

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

    Do not waste your money on this product. Even for a younger child it is not worth it. The large viewing area does not show a clear image and it is extremely difficult to see the image through the top viewfinder. I am surprised Toys R Us would put their name on such a product. Even if you have a younger child, look for a better product because you will be glad you did. My two-year-old loves to use my older daughters new microscope which has much clearer images and can view a wider varitey than this product.

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

        Santa brought this to us this past Christmas, and we've been so busy we didn't try it until now... I wish he wouldn't have wasted his money. All I can see through the eye piece is light... can't focus it on anything else. The viewfinder works ok but it's just kind of like watching a silhouette puppet show after a lot of fidgeting to get it semi focused. Also, there are no instructions. There was a hair inside the packaging and it was NOT part of the prepared slides. Ew. Save your money and go for the better quality machines.

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

          The product is pretty and has some fun accessories, but unfortunately it is useless. There is no way to calibrate the poor glass to see anything. I have not been able to use it at all and my daughter has tried eagerly to see something, but all in vain.

          Do not waste your money; there are better units for a slightly higher price.

                My 8yr old son purchased this with his birthday money and the light on it is bright but we cant see anything but the light when we look through the scope. The front picture shows more of a silhouette than anything else. He likes it because he has no idea how they are suppose to actually work. I had one as a kid and nobody is fooling me;-) we are taking it back to find a better one.

                        Very disappointed 8-year old. He was so excited to get this. My mom sent it to us in France. Turned it on & tried to use their example slide of a wing & it doesn't focus at all. Completely useless. And it would cost me more money to send it back to my mom for a refund than to buy a new microscope here. Also, there aren't really any instructions except what's advertised on the front of the box.

                          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.
