Neat Idea, didn't function

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on March 4, 2010
There is a lot of neat stuff in this box and it generated a lot of excitement when opened. However, the microscope did not work. At all. Nothing can be seen- and I work in a lab, I know how to use microscopes. My 3 & 4 year olds didn't realize how poorly it functions, but I would not recommend this at all....

Meade Children's 28-piece Starter's Microscope Kit

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 7, 2010
Seemed like a good idea. Probably a good starter for kids to at least see if there is any real interest in using a microscope. However, my microscope was broken. The light source didn't work and therefore we got almost no use out of it and had to return it for an upgrade.
Pros: inexpensive starter
Cons: plastic, cheaply made, broken parts...
Would recommend: No

Meade Children's 28-piece Starter's Microscope Kit - 08019

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on December 8, 2009
As a high school science teacher, I make an effort not to frustrate students. This microscope is frustrating to use even for the most elementry uses. Frustration leads to disintrest which consumes valuable classroom time.

If your child uses this microiscope for homework, extra credit or personal exploration they are likely to experience frustration at its lack of objectivity, light control and especially its poor resolution.

Pros: Some usable accessories in the twenty eight piece for other uses.
Cons: poorly functional microscope ...
Would recommend: No
