We bought this microscope for my two sons (ages 8 and 10) for their birthdays. I am really impressed.
We wanted to buy this for Christmas but ran a little short on cash for the price of $119.00. So when we went the other day to KB Toys at the mall they had it on sale for $79 with a $30 rebate. Now THAT is a deal.
It has 10x - 60x - 200x viewing ability. It is USB so basically plug it in, install the software and you are ready to go.
I think the features are something you just can't find in any other product. Both my youngest son and I wear glasses. In the past it has been very hard for us to use microscopes because we could not see. This brings it right up on your computer and allows you to take a picture and then alter the picture if you would like. It will even let you set up time lapse pictures automatically.
The microscope also comes off the stand so you can freely move around and view things that would fit on the tray.
We homeschool and this by far has been our favorite Science activity. You can print things out to use for reports or make stickers out of them. My kids have not put it down. This is one microscope that is really going to get a workout at our house!
