This is a great introduction to microscopes and how to use them. However, it only has 1 slide set of 12 slides, all insects, and you cannot buy additional slide sets. Also, the slides are pictures which is okay for younger children but you need to develop more slides of items other than insects...flower petals, corn husks, wheat...have some plant slides, household item slides, etc.

About Me Child Care Provider, Parent
love this microscope, but if you lose the slides then its no fun my son just holds it now because there are no slides, i wish i could order replacement slides.

great for 5 and 6 year old

Are there more slides for different bugs that you can buy as a kit? I really like the product but wish the slide holding container was made of stiffer plastic and easier to open and close for little hands. other then that I am happy with this item as a gift.

Between three teachers at the center that I work at we have these for our science centers for the preschoolers. But over time the slides have managed to disappear. Is there any option in replacing these.

Hello,Great Product, but no where on your websight can I find replacement slides. Would be nice if there was additional slides as well.
Light stopped working!
from Oneida, NY
My daughter used her microscope for 15 minutes and now the light won't turn on. She is very upset! I don't see any way to get inside to replace a bulb or anything either. Very disappointing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Grandparent
This is a great toy! The two complaints I have are: don't put the speaker on the bottom and PLEASE make more slides for this toy! Once they go through all the slides they want new ones to go through...plants, more bugs, etc. PLEASE MAKE MORE SLIDES FOR THIS TOY,
Need more slides and storage

About Me Educator, Parent, Thrifty
This is a great gift but didn't take long to get through and discuss the slides and the fun just stopped till the next child gets old enough. But it was a a super gift for the first few days. Lost some of the slides would love to purchase a replacement.
Merchant response: Glad you love the Takling Microscope and we hear you crystal clear about the slides. You can put other found objects under the scope and check them out, though - try leaves, feathers, a strand of hair, postage stamp...
Needs more slide sets!
By Music Mama

About Me Homeschool parent
Although I feel this is a fantastic product, is well made and the kids love to use it, I am VERY sad that GeoSafari did not make other slide sets for this talking microscope. The kids have done all the slides that came with it so many times, it would sure be wonderful if there were other slide sets available about other topics, that we could purchase.
Merchant response: Music Mama, you're not alone. We've heard from fans far and wide that they'd like more slides and will definitely incorporate that capability into our future products. Thank you for taking the time to let us know.
