I supervise my 4yo daughter as she uses this microscope. She loves it! Together, we have collected and prepared specimens right from our backyard. I have the added task of focusing it for her. She loves staring at magnified objects. She wants to put everything under the microscope!

I purchased this item for my 7 yr old daughter for Christmas, this was to be her second microscope. I felt that it would allow her to "show" her findings something she's always trying to do, but the side view screen was terrible. Even the eyepiece didn't work as well as the cheap $10 microscope I got her last year, which this was supposed to be replacing. Thankfully we bought the warranty but I hope I'm not forced to purchase this item again.

          This was a birthday present for my daughter. The microscope came in a kit with a telescope. It looked great in the package. The light on the microscope is so bright; it could be a replacement for laser surgery. The telescope wasn't powerful enough to see the moon right above our house. What a let down.

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

                I bought this for my daughter as a birthday present before looking at reviews. I'm so glad I came on here before actually giving it to her to see what people are saying about it. Decided to give it a try myself beforehand to see what results I would get. No surprise, I was disappointed. I'm no science geek, but I have had some past experience using microscopes in College lab. This is a very inferior microscope. The view is whited out and foggy, you just can't see enough detail to make it worth while. For a little extra money and a few minutes of research, you can get something worlds better than this that will actually teach your kids something. Returning it immediately for an upgrade.

                  Junk. we are taking it back. I should have checked out the reviews first. I like the design so little ones eyes r protected..but the light may blind you..and 900x magnification is no where close..couldnt focus on anything.

                            The product looks great in the box but Do NOT waste your money!! IT IS TERRIBLE! I bought two of these. One was for my daughter and one for my niece. Both of them were so bad you couldn't see anything. The scope is to close and out of focus no matter how you try to adjust it. We spent hours trying. There was nothing good about this product. Even the screen on the side wouldnt focus. Dont waste your time or money.

                            Good microscope; got it yesterday. Very useful and I love the viewing screen. The microscope is good, but it does have a lot of trouble focusing and I think the magnification is too high to. Overall though, I would buy. It has everything for a child to start learning about the world of science. : D
