    Purchased for my grandson. My grandson is loving this microscope. He loves that it has a built-in light so that he can see better as well as the fact that you can adjust the lens up and down. He is also excited about all the accessories. This is a great gift for kids who are into the study of rocks. My grandson says this will also be great to look at bugs as well but his main focus is on the quality and grade of rocks and imperfections. Great gift and I would highly recommend as this microscope is great quality and can grow with your kids of all ages.

  • Average Toy ... made in China piece of junk.

    This would be a great toy if it could last a few days... no sturdiness whatsoever. The wind might break it. Buy something made of metal. This is a very thin, weak plastic. Great idea, but a junk product. Smithsonian brands sound very american.... don't be fooled. Its XXXXX garbage. Save your dollars... buy half the toys for twice the price and end up with something nice! Wow, that even rhymed.

  • A great beginner Microscope!

    My child was really crushed on this Christmas morning. Product was cheaply made and didnt work at all. Very misleading to use the Smithsonian tradmark to sell product made in China. Does Overstock chek out their merchandise before putting it on line? I'm returning it immediately.

  • Sorry
    Verified Purchase

    Trying to provide some enjoyment for my elderly father in Assisted Living but unable as neither the original, nor its replacement worked.

  • Good for the price
    Verified Purchase

    Have had this for a few years now and it worked for our needs for my children's schooling. The light is having issues now with not staying on, so probably wouldn't be good if you constantly needed to use it.
