    My family and I had a great time playing and learning with this microscope. We did not have anything like this, so I had to read through the manual since its been a long, long time since I've been in a science class.

    The MicroPro requires 2 AA batteries (not included) to work with the led light that's used to see th specimen. There are 2 eyepieces, plenty of slides to collect and view objects, and an assortment of tools to handle your items. The microscope is one sturdy, high quality piece. There are 3 slides pre loaded with specimens, which made it easy to use right out of the box.

    This microscope has kept our family intrigued and entertained as we continue to find new things we want to look at and examine. Great product!

    Nice kit, didn't last long.

    Microscope focusing gears striped out after 10 mins of parent supervised use. Returning it for another one hope it last longer.

      My daughter has enjoyed using the GeoSafari MicroPro. She was eager to use it immediately, and I had to slow her down, so we could read the directions and discuss the care and use of the lens, slides and instruments. She did have difficulty focusing the lens initially, but finally got the adjustment correct and was excited to see the specimens on the prepared slides. The kit comes with 12 blank slides and she is eager to make her own. This microscope will be invaluable not only for her every day studies, but also for her annual science fair school project.

        I received this product for testing purposes through Educational Insights. Overall it is not a bad product for the price. I did have issues focusing at first and it was beyond the frustration level of many of my students. This is not really a toy that can be handed to a child to use. They will need assistance and guidance with using it.

        This microscope is a great beginner microscope for kids. The biggest con we found was a lack of clear instructions and even my ten year old needed a nice amount of adult assistance to use it. Once we figured it out, my children of various ages 3-10 all enjoy using it and find it fascinating to look at the different slides. The older bunch loved creating their own slides. I recommend, especially for this price. I received this product in exchange for my honest review.

            After inheriting lots of slides, we've been wanting a microscope! I took a while exploring this microscope with my husband and 9 year old before writing this review. Overall, I feel that it is a very good price to pay for the set and it is a good one for beginners! It comes with a lot of neat accessories and we have enjoyed tinkering with it. Lots of learning to come with this.

              This microscope got my 9 year old very excited to immediately try out! He loved how it came with all the specimen bottles so he could collect his own things. It was also great that it came with some pre-made slides, so he could try it out right away. This kit definitely comes with a lot of pieces, so it's for older kids. The only downside is, like many microscopes, it was quite difficult to dial in and see what was on the slides initially, but once we got it figured out, it was great!

                      We loved this set. I was given this item for my honest opinion and I think it is great. In the booklet it gives you a few ideas for creating some of your own slides which is great. But a couple of the tools are pointless they could have subed in the dye that they talk about in the book and the adhesive to make permanent slides instead. Other than that it works great. And we have a great time finding new things to look at using this microscope.
