It is a lot lighter (weight) than I thought it would be. I haven’t opened the box so I can’t really say anything else about it. Packaging is bright and attractive though.see moreof the reviewer's review

A Christmas gift for my 4 year old grandson. He loves to play scientist and couldn't wait to pluck a leaf and a flower to examine. We live in FL so that wasn't a problem. You will need a screwdriver and batteries to get the light to work.see moreof the reviewer's review

Very cute little microscope for curious kids but definitely not for anyone older than 4/5. I returned one of them that I bought to find a more age-appropriate set for a 6.5 year old.
