As a former educator I LOVE this product. I having been using this product with my two girls and they are so excited about science! The science tools are durable, kid friendly, bright and fun. The science experiments provided in the set are super easy and simple. In the past I have scrounged around for things I could use for all of our science experiments, but this set provide the best of the basics. I am so happy with this product and would highly recommend it anyone who is interested in getting kids excited about learning!

Bought for my 7 year old's birthday. Chose this model because of the option to plug in (not be constantly changing batteries)and higher price (hoping for higher quality) The "specimen box" broke the first time she used it- now won't come out of the slot so she can switch back to slides. The slides are plastic [...] and only 2 cover slips (sticky, so won't last) Will return ASAP.

Worked great for my sons science experiment for his science fair. He used each test tube to hold different mixtures to see what crystal would grow.

        Comments about Learning Resources Primary Microscope:

        I agree with all the comments on how durable, great for little hands, educational, fun science toy, etc. I will add that I thought it was the best choice around for an age appropriate science kit for my 6 year old daughter. She loves all the components and doing her own experiments. In fact, be sure to catch that you can download 20 more pages for 10 more experiment cards if you go to the bonus content on this website. It may also help if you are unsure of making this purchase. You can see if those experiments look appropriate for your son or daughter. I also appreciate that the experiments use household items that most will already have in the home and if not they are easy and cheap to purchase. Great set!

                Comments about Learning Resources Primary Microscope:

                I was interested in buying this kit for my 18 month old because I realized that all of her role-playing toys were household/domestic. I am a scientist myself and want her to be exposed to other role-playing. I bought this kit for a friend's 18 month old as a gift first to see how it was, and we were both quite pleased. The toddlers enjoy putting the tubes in and out of the racks and screwing the tops on, but I think they will be interested to watch many of the experiments suggested on the cards, even if they are a bit too young to do some things on their own.

                  I gave the experiment set and the microscope to my three year old grand daughter at the suggestion of my daughter. When I explained the experiments to my grand daughter, she became so excited about getting to try them once she got home. She asked questions and her eyes, which are large anyway, became very large with anticipation. She'll enjoy each one.

                  Use these to dissolve bath color pellets, and mix all kinds of colors, teaching how primary colors can combine to create new colors, teaching about how volume changes and concentration changes affect opacity. Large size, can screw caps on so tightly that toddlers can't open.

                    Comments about Learning Resources Primary Microscope:

                    I gave this to my 5 year old nephew who has never been to preschool so this was his first 'formal' science lesson. I had done most of these experiments as I am a preschool teacher, but I always had to run around to find the supplies needed. This made it so EASY!

                    I set this up on a picnic table outside to do with my nephew on his birthday, but we were soon joined by his sisters, 2nd and 4th grade. We did the volcano and some color mixing. I taught them the correct names for the pieces and they couldn't get enough. I wish I had more time to do more with them. They were so excited and so was I.

                    Unfortunately I live 2 hours away so I have to hope their mother will do these experiments with them. It is such an awesome set and I don't think anyone will be disappointed with it!
