Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Talking Microscope:
I bought this microscope for my five and three year old sons for Christmas. They really enjoyed playing with it and its well made. Huge problem however, you cant buy additional slides for it. You get twelve bug slides and once they go through them a few times they are completely done with it. Would be an exceptional toy if you could buy all different types of slides. Otherwise, its only good for a few hours of education and fun. We are disappointed!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Grandparent
My 4 year old grand daughter loved it as did my 2 1/2 year old grand son. It would be nice to be able to order more slides. They will get tired of it soon. But it's really fun for a while and made well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Talking Microscope was giving to my niece as a Christmas present. The microscope kept saying same phrase over and over again... It was not fun at all.

Buy with caution
About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent, Working Parent
This is a neat toy. The slides contain photos and not real specimens which is okay. My daughter is enjoying the lessons learned, although one of the slide quiz answers is wrong. (We looked it up on the internet to confirm the answer). BIG CON...you cannot buy additional slides. At least none that I can find after searching the internet. Once my 6 year old goes through these slides (which will happen in under a week) she will probably become bored with it.
This is my second talking microscope!

About Me Education Oriented
I teach a garden education class to 5 and 7 year olds. I use this microscope to teach Bug of the Week. The children love it and enjoy the quiz portion it is a fun learning game; it also helps eliminate fear of insects while we are working in the garden.

My 5 year old got this for xmas and loves it. It is easy to use durable. I would recommend this! I do wish it had more slides with it. I am going to see if they make more that you can buy.
great for a little kid
Gave this to my grandson and he loved it. He'd like more slides to fit it.
