DESCRIPTION
DELIVERY INFO
4(42 reviews)

A superior-quality children's microscope with a built-in light source, giving a range of magnifications up to x1200.

The sturdy, fold-out storage case contains blank slides and a prepared viewer card together with instruments (some very sharp which should be used under adult supervision; a scalpel, a micro-slicer and a pointed seeker) for making your own slides.

The kit includes a selection of pre-made slides of algae, fibres, and other items.

This is our best selling children's microscope in the under £50 bracket, with excellent reviews.

It is still a toy microscope. If you want a metal body more expensive scope we recommend the TK2

Requires 2 AA batteries (not supplied) for the sub-stage light.

Age 10 and above.

Follow-up after 60 days : Excellent

Bad

It was not fit for purpose for 8 year old.
Unable to see anything very flimsy and cheap looking

Good

Follow-up after 75 days :This was bought for our 10 year old grand daughter. She is delighted, especially as she can take it to school in the case.

Good

Follow-up after 60 days :Compact, handy Microscope set.Good for seeing small things more clearly. The service from Brightminds was excellent. Can recommend them without hesitation.

Poor

Follow-up after 60 days :Not very easy to use, really depends on good natural light source; very lightweight, not robust enough

Poor

Follow-up after 60 days :The eye piece for the microscope was bad quality, to see anything you had to take this off. It is packaged really nicely in the case and would have been lovely had it worked properly. The customer service initially, was great, another was sent straight away - but this had the same issue. The returns labels were sent quickly also. However, once I had sent them both back everything slowed right down, even allowing for the Christmas rush. I was told that they hadnt been received and that I had to send proof of purchase. Which I did before Christmas. I called yesterday and was told that by the end of this week the money will be back in my account.

Good

Looks OK but as it is intended as a present I have not opened it and cannot therefore comment on the quality

Good

THIS IS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT SO AM NOT OPENING IT TIL CHRISTMAS - TRUST THAT EVERYTHING IS THERE AS DESCRIBED.

Good

The Microscope was good value but could perhaps be improved by a booklet on how to use a microscope with some examples of what to look at.

Excellent

A quality value for money product.My grand daughter is still in the early stages of learning to use a microscope but it must help her learning about life.I would like to see the batteries supplied for immediate use.This was a birthday present.Her Christmas present will be bought from Bright Minds.

Bad

Dissapointed.We paid twise as much as a typical "toy store" microscope in the hope that we would get something more usable, but to be honest this microscope is just the same.Tiny viewfinder optics, dim image with lots of marks on it and difficult to avoid getting eyelashes in view.Plastic case is nice and reasonable set of accesories, but that is really all I can say.

Bad

Was less than impressed with the quality of the microscope and found the images to be of very poor quality.Please warn customers that the microscope case contains nasty instruments.My son took one of the instruments without our knowledge, tripped and fell puncturing his face with a spike like tool, in doing so has fractured his eye socket and severed a fascial nerve.He was lucky not to have blinded himself.Although this is not the fault of BrightMinds we do feel these tools/implements are perhaps not ideal to be inside a children's microscope case.

So sorry to hear about your son's experience.We do say quite clearly that the set includes several sharp instruments, including a scalpel. We have added that children should be supervised whilst using the set. Please do remember we have a 90 day guarantee,if you are not happy we do mean you can send it back for a full refund.
