        Comments about GeoSafari® Jr. My First Microscope:

        This is a great microscope for young kids who just want to magnify things. I tried with a magnifier with my 3 year old daughter but she wanted a microscope like her big brothers. There are no slides or anything included other than the microscope, but it does require batteries so make sure you have those on hand. You can adjust the microscope up and down for bigger or smaller items and there is even a light, which is what the batteries are for. Its very basic but still cool. Its colorful, chunky, and durable as well.

          Comments about GeoSafari® Jr. My First Microscope:

          Preschool and Kindergarten kids are naturally curious about the world and what lives in it. Help your child get excited about learning with the GeoSafari® Jr. My First Microscope. This microscope can magnify any small object- flat or dimensional- at 8x. This is a real working microscope made just for little hands.

          It is designed specifically for kids, so it is built with rounded edges, big buttons and a large knob. Adisyn and my niece Dezi loves to find items to magnify throughout the yard and house. I love that she can hold it securely without it slipping away from her.

          It has an extra large eye piece so that she can see what she is viewing without squinting. It also has a large push-button light to help her see more clearly (3 AAA batteries are required to work the light). She feels so important being able to use a science tool all by herself.

          The magnification at 8x is perfect for her. We can study and learn about different textures of the outside and inside world. Whether it's buttons, bugs, blades of grass, flower seeds, small rocks, coins, etc. We've had a blast exploring in our own backyard, such a new experience for her.

            Comments about GeoSafari® Jr. My First Microscope:

            I quite like this microscope, its designed and built with round edges, big buttons and knobs, doesn't skid when my preschooler handles it! It has large eye pieces so one's not squinting to look through and the light helps to show the object ever more clearly. Magnification is not too bad, especially for things they love to have a closer look at grass blades, coins, stamps, stickers, lego mini figures, worms, you name it! I always wish these toys came with batteries - so make sure you have 3 AAA, will highly recommend it for little discoverers :)
