The perfect gift for an inquisitive 4-year-old!

My daughter received the My First Microscope as a gift for her fourth birthday and she absolutely loves it! Parental plusses: 1. It's small and light and easily fits on our bookshelf. 2. It's made of a very sturdy plastic and rubber, so it's not breaking anytime soon. 3. The batteries (3 x AAA) are not included (bummer) but also not necessary to operate! 4. It doesn't make any noise, except a clicking to let the user know that it's reached the top or bottom height. 5. It's educational, right? Our experience: Anita opened it and asked what it was - "well, it makes stuff look bigger - you can look closer than you can normally." Then I showed her with a $20 bill - she was amazed! There is nothing about this beyond it's function that required explanation. She's been running around the apartment finding different stuff to put underneath, each item revealing a secret world that's normally just out of sight. It's hard to understand 8x zoom - it's certainly not impressive compared to something you would see at the science museum. It is, however, enough to show the fibers of a blanket which, for a curious 4 year old, is absolutely perfect.

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 :)

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.

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.
