My nephew loved this microscope. It comes with all kinds of test tubes and slides which made the microscope so much more fun. I'm glad I dd not get the smaller version that only had a few slides. My nephew and son spent quite a bit of time gathering specimens and being scientists. I don't think they would have spent much time if they just had a few pre made slides to look at. The only con was that an adult had to focus it for him each time.

I am simply amazed at how awful this product is. I was hoping that I just happened to get one that was defective, but seeing how every review is the same, I'm in shock that something so atrocious is for sale in such a big name store.I would expect something with this quality to be in the 2-for-1 bin at a [...] in the biggest toy chain there is. It is as if drunk monkeys took pieces of old reading glasses and hastily glued them to rejected microscope frames.From the hundred little spots on the eyepiece to the unimaginably shoddy construction, this is nothing more than a paperweight. The only lesson that can be taught with this is a lesson on not buying science equipment at a toy store.My daughter was so excited when I brought this home. When we finally gave up on it, I contemplated leaving the family out of sheer embarrassment for having been party to such a horrid gift. It is absolutely mindboggling to think that something like this made it through a quality control department. I can only imagine the board meeting that went on to come up with this product:Marketing dept: We need to get into the science racketProduct Development: I have an idea! Let's make something that LOOKS like a microscope!Marketing dept: You mean, make a microscope?Product Development: Meh, as long as it looks like one, right?Stay as far away from this as you can.

                  Bought this for my buddying scientist granddaughter. I remember having a microscope as a kid and the first time I saw onion skin, a strand of hair or pond water. Amazing! The edu-toys microscope is junk. Couldn't focus on anything. Very disappointing, wasted money and a missed opportunity for excited learning.

                        The microscope had nice features an worked well for one day. It is now discontinued so I couldn't get a replacement one. I ended up returning it and ordering a new one that didn't have the case or extra items. I really liked the extra items and my daughter was heart broken.

                            It is a good starter microscope. A decent model for the price. It is a little flimsy feeling when compared to the metal ones I used in school, but again it was rather inexpensive.

                                What a nice looking kit, but it does not work. The microscope can not focus and it seems to have crud on the inside of the eye piece. The maunfacture obviosly did not have any quality control. The problem seems to be with the eye piece which is glued into a tube. There is not any way to rectify the problem. How unfortunate for the child that ends up with one of these microscopes. With a little quality control, this could have been a great microscope. Plastic construction is not the problem, its the way the eye piece is made. Some people may have purchased a good one, but from my observation and all the other negative reviews, do not purchace this item.

                                I checked the reviews for this microscope AFTER I'd already purchased it, and needless to say, I was horrified. My son's birthday party being tomorrow, I decided to take the microscope out of its box and try it to see if it worked. I was a little disappointed to find out it is made of plastic, not metal, but it is a kid's microscope after all. I like the case that came with it and all the extra slides, test tubes, etc. The magnification is not fantastic, but it did work for me and my husband when we tested it out. The slides looked pretty cool under the microscope, but it was a bit difficult to find the sweet spot. Still - very good buy for the price, and I think my son and I will enjoy it for a long time. Definitely help your kid / kids with using this, at least at first so they can get the hang of it.
