Perfect for kids! – Mini 60X Microscope Keychain w/ 1-LED Illumination/Currency Detector UV Light (3 x LR1130) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Small, portable, interesting. Has both white and UV LEDs, which is fantastic.
Cons:
Folding design meant a bit of a learning curve at first, and I can already tell that the latch will wear down fairly quickly.
Other:
The focus lens is a great addition, though there are times when it would be nice if it went further, most of that is dealt with by just lifting the microscope.
Bottomline:
Opened it up, asked which colour light they wanted, and handed it to the younger kids (5 and 10); they had a great time exploring things on their own, and they still ask to use it every once in a while. I fully expect that when summer is in full force, it'll be used to find all sorts of things in the grass and dirt. (May have to order a few more and I'm ok with that :) )
