This telescope came quickly and was packaged perfectly. Assembly was a breeze (literally 2 minutes). My 3 boys (ages 4-7) have been fighting over this since the day we took it out of the box. They LOVE it... and I love it because it has sparked a lot of educational conversations and it allows them to use their imagination. I was initially worries that it would break because my kids are so rough with their toys.. but, nope. 6 weeks and it hasn't budged. Great quality. The colors are bold and inviting and go well in their playroom. We love this... and would highly recommend purchasing. Five stars!!

Very excited to use the item to get a closer look at the stars, moon and anything else in our mysterious skies, but nothing can be seen. It's been a month and this beautiful item has just taken up space. Night after night we try and my 2yr old is just happy to play with it, but my 6yr old understands that we only see darkness. I've read manuals and had others try to help us and still nothing. I will be returning this telescope this weekend. Not satisfied with the product.

    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Junior My First Telescope:

    This telescope was purchased for a 2 year old. A telescope was a Christmas wish from Santa Claus. Perhaps we received a defective telescope, nothing can be viewed through the scope. I found the brochure today that was in the packaging & I found it humorous to see the phases of the moon with the use of this telescope. This telescope is nothing more than a prop.

          Love that my daughter can look through it with both eyes. It doesn't have to be used to view the moon, she likes using it to look at birds and critters that hang out in our yard.

              I would like a refund or exchange for another product this is terrible. We have the binoculars and they are great. He looks at the stars and moon with those but the telescope was a total waste of money. Very very disappointing!!!!

                  from Maui, Hawaii

                  Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Junior My First Telescope:

                  This telescope is like a make-beleive toy, it does not really allow you to see stars. Yes it is nice to have both eyes to see through like binoculars do, but the point of focus for your eyes is about an inch back from the head pad. So frustrating, cant wait to send it back and spend a little more money to get one that really works. The whole point is to get kids interested in astronomy not frustrated.

                    Comments about Educational Insights GeoSafari Junior My First Telescope:

                    Have you ever tried to get your kids to look through binoculars or a telescope? You'll notice they often have trouble with eye placement and are a bit taken aback by the magnification. Well, this kids' version of the telescope accommodates for that by having a wide field of vision and goggles that help position the child's eyes. When kids experience success with a toy like this, they are more likely to want to continue learning through play. So although this is definitely a more limited telescope best for kids just starting out, it will be a great stepping stone for them to learn how to use this tool and later they can graduate to a more sophisticated version!
                    With this 'scope, you can see the moon 10x magnified, which allows them to get a glimpse of some of the details on the moon's surface. It's the perfect starter tool for little space explorers, and encourages discovery, questioning, and exploration. Included is a guide for phases of the moon.
                    (I received this product in exchange for my honest review).

                        My daughter loves stars, so we bought her this for Christmas. It's very light, so she is able to move it in her own, and the scope is for both eyes, so she doesn't have to learn how to look through one eye.
