We were sent this product for reviewing and my 6 and 4 year old loved it right out of the box.

The periscope really sparked their imagination and they pretended to be secret agents and used the periscope as their secret spying tool and the LED light was a huge hit with the boys. They even took it to go bird watching on a hike and were very excited that they could see the different colors of some of the birds 'from up so close' in the forest preserve. The kids insisted on taking it to a family event, climbed the tree house with their cousins and played pirates with the periscope to 'search for land' and 'other pirate ships'.It was interesting to see how after their play they were so curious to know as to how their eye was magnified on the top which started a whole new learning topic on reflection, light and mirrors.Being the science teacher I am, I did a mini impromptu science lesson to explore and explain how a periscope works which made some of the older kids ask their parents to get this 'amazing toy that does not look like a toy'.

Also, the periscope is built very sturdy to withstand use by little hands.My kids argued as to who would take it first for 'show and tell'at school.
The periscope provides a lot of imaginative and scientific exploration opportunities for budding scientists and would be of great interest to parents and children who engage in meaningful and constructive play.

Right now, Pirates, Nature, Submarines and Spying are quiet popular in our house, so the Sneak & Peek Periscope came at a good time. Our 5 year old thought the idea of the periscope was really interesting and fun. His favorite activity with it is to use it in a "tent" where he can secretly peek out and spy on us. It is very durable and easy for a 4-5 year old to handle. This toy does not have magnification nor does it have the capability to be extend. Unfortunately, the novelty of it wore off for him rather quickly, but it tends to be popular with visiting friends.

My Six Year Old Loves it!

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. Sneak & Peek Periscope:

    We had the perfect opportunity to observe nature on a couple of recent camping trips we took. We had a great view of the Salton Sea and so we used our new Periscope to check things out!

    My six year old Paige was immediately interested in it I liked that the big handles made it easy for her to grip. It's lightweight so it's easy for little ones to hold onto. The attached goggles also gives them a safe, soft place to put their face without injury.

    Paige was really fascinated by it and had a lot of questions about the way it worked and the way she was seeing things. I admit I had to look a few things up to answer her questions. We're both learning with this one!

    A cool feature is the LED light they can flip on for night viewing. I like that it's LED so it'll last longer than traditional lighting. It does require batteries that it does not come with so we had to wait until we got home to try that feature.

    The GeoSafari series has many items like this that are great for beginners to explore their world. It encourages a love of science and exploration at a young age. I love how they are made specifically for kids and have considered what appeals to them.

    The Sneak & Peek Periscope has made it's appearance several times over the past couple of weeks whenever Paige decides she wants to get a better look at something. I'll see it looking at me from around the corner or peaking up over the couch! It's cute that it's become a little tool for her and that she enjoys using it!

    Scope this one out!!

    By D. McCoy

    from Chicago, IL

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. Sneak & Peek Periscope:

    My 5 year old recently received this item and it has entertained him on a daily basis since. This periscope is light, durable and easy to handle and works in well lit conditions as well as at night with the added LED light on the front of the neck of the periscope. The frame fits comfortably around his face and the periscope is light enough for him to walk around with while scoping out people in the house and outside in the yard. The light makes for a lot of fun search and find adventures around the house at night with all the lights out too. We will definitely have to get another periscope for our 2 year old to play with when she gets a little older.

    Well made and educational toy

    By A&BZ

    from Minneapolis, MN

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. Sneak & Peek Periscope:

    This toy is well made: shatter proof mirrors, lightweight, and easy to grip handles. My three year old thought it was really fun to "spy" on us while we were in a different room. The novelty wore off fairly quickly though. I think it might be better suited to ages five and older. However my husband absolutely LOVES this thing and I know it will continue to be used by the whole family for years to come. Well worth the cost!

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. Sneak & Peek Periscope:

    Well built toy and so much fun! We have 2 girls, aged 6 and 4, and they both love the periscope. They love being able to look around corners, sneaking up during the day and night (the light on the periscope enables that!) and pretending that they are pirates and explorers. I find it hilarious that I can see their eyes in the periscope when they are watching me. We spent a few minutes talking about how the periscope works with the reflective mirrors so it was a good science lesson to share, AND it is a fun toy! You need to insert 3 AAA batteries for the light to work. What's also nice is that the toy is well built and seems like it will withstand plenty of play.

    from Chicago, IL

    Pros

    • Nice Large Handles To Hol

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Jr. Sneak & Peek Periscope:

        At first both my 4 year old and 2 year old loved this periscope. They liked how the viewing lens was big enough to see through both of their eyes and they enjoyed seeing around the corner or just peering over the couch or behind a bush. My 2 year old loves the light switch and enjoys looking at things at night. However, the novelty of it soon wore off and now it is used more to store their toy cars in.

            My four year old son loved this product! It looks great, it has an easy to handle design, and its just an all around awesome concept. He spent most of his time playing with this outside. It was perfect for spying birds, and trees, plants, and insects. I liked the feature of the light as well. My son and daughter played with this during lights out and spied things around the room in the dark. I'm sure my son especially will enjoy this toy for a long time!
