|LEARN|interplay pocket microscope review


We recently recieved a pocket microscope from Interplay to review.  The microscope is designed for children aged 6 and above, but at age 4 with supervision, T managed to use it with great success and loved it!


The pocket microscope comes with a selection of accessories, specimen bottles, slides and tweezers. T really enjoyed collecting his specimens from the garden and pond.  The design of the microscope also means that you can look at bugs and larger items within the clear little chamber at the bottom without harming them.  We looked at some bugs and flowers this way which was really successful.


The microscope needs 2 AA batteries to make it work and it has a really clever design in that when you open the scope the light automatically turns on and switches off when you close it.


I thought T would struggle more with looking through the scope, but he didn't, I did have to set the focus for him but once that was done he was fine to look himself, and really enjoyed looking at the slides that were including with the kit.


The pocket microscope has an RRP of £9.99, in my opinion a really good price for such a great little tool, I'm sure that this will be something much used in coming years.

Disclaimer: we were sent this item in return for our honest review.
