    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!

      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.

            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.

                Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Talking Microscope:

                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.

                  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.

                              Gave this to my grandson and he loved it. He'd like more slides to fit it.
