      Comments about Magnify the mini!:

      I was given as a review item. All views are my own.

      When I was little I was not a girly girly girl. I didn't play with dolls. I played with cars and building blocks. Girl toys didn't interest me. My room was wall to wall shelves with dolls I never even played with. Stuffed critters covered my bed but never were played with.

      Then one year for xmas my dad got me a microscope and computer. It would change my life later on. I loved them. I would sit for hours playing with my microscope. I want my kids to get that same feeling.

      Nancy B Microscope has been a great way I have been able to teach and connect with Rowan. I was so tickled to get to review this product. It is a full set with blank slides and everything you need to make your own. Don't worry the scalpel and tweezers are plastic and safe.

      It is a easy to use microscope for small hands. Comes with a Journal to write down what they see and discover. Has three different miginfing settings. A cover for eye lens to keep it clean. both upper and lower lights for better viewing. Has three pre-made slides to get you started.

      This has Rowan loving looking at things in a different way. He really loves learning about what things look up close.

      It is a well make educational toy. Will last for years. Can be use with your homeschool curriculum. As a great way to get your child into Science. Even if you don't homeschool it makes a great gift for any child. Make it a gift that could change their life for the better.

      Comments about Magnify the mini!:

      Both of my girls (4 and 10) enjoyed this Microscope.
      works well enough to get kids interested in science and microbiology.It really does function quite well, especially for its purpose, which is to introduce children to science. It does the trick very nicely, and is sturdy enough to hold up to rough handling.My older daughter is all into science so this was perfect for her. she can spend hours makings slides and looking into them.
      It would be nice if it came with a pouch or box to keep all the slides and vials together.

        My granddaughter was uncertain what she had received until we put the first prepared slide nto the field. She loved the experience and thought of many other things she wished to view. I had looked at other microscopes that were more powerful but believe the design is perfect for a 7 year old

          Comments about Magnify the mini!:

          We gave this to our 8 year old daughter for Christmas. She absolutely loves it. It's small and lightweight so it travels easily for her to grandmas house and I'm certain it will be headed to the beach with us on vacation this year. Definitely worth every penny. I was skeptical because of the size and all of the plastic, but it has quickly proven that it is a capable little microscope. I'm sure we'll be getting a bigger, heavy duty microscope in years to come for our little science lover, but this is perfect right now.
