Kids can see bugs up close and personal—and listen to insect facts, too—with the GeoSafari® Jr. Talking Microscope from Educational Insights. This is a wonderful first microscope—it’s easy to assemble and use. The Talking Microscope comes with 12 prepared slides of common bugs.
As your young entomologists view the slides, they can turn a dial to listen to recorded facts about each slide. Kids can then test their knowledge by playing the Microscope’s electronic quiz game. Even better, kids can view their own slides and specimens on the Talking Microscope (it just won’t talk about them, of course). Show your children another perspective of the world they live in with this terrific science toy. Age 5+.
Details: The microscope is capable of 5x magnification and has a light for improved close-up examination. Product dimensions: 10.2 x 8.1 x 5.7 inches. Requires 3 C batteries; not included.
