Comments about GeoSafari® Talking Electron Microscope™:
It is called an electron microscope, but it is not a microscope at all. It is a shell with dozens of pre-existing images that you view on a tiny computer screen. My daughter was really looking forward to collecting and examining her own samples, but that is not an option with this item. There is no reason to buy this--you can find higher resolution electron microscope images on the internet.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Hi Holly, We're sorry you and your daughter were disappointed. This is actually the only version of an electron microscope available as a "toy" - it's designed to introduce young scientists to the types of amazing images they could see and the way they might see them through a real, scientific, electron microscope.
