This is a terrific microscope for kids because it has so many useful extra features for outdoor explorers. Designed to be taken and used outside (no need to set it on a table), this quality microscope magnifies up to 30 times the original size and has battery-operated LED lights to use if needed. Kids can take it right up to the object they want to view!
More features: microscope comes with four vials to hold samples, tweezers (to help pick up tiny things), and three slides. More extras: cover foil and two sample slides (one with grasshopper samples, the other with textile samples). Best of all, kids can keep all these extra parts organized in the included Neoprene carrying case. Ages 6 and older.
Needs 2 AA batteries, not included.
