I was so excited t get this telescope for my daughters 3rd birthday. Everyone at the party went outside to see the stars, but after the very easy assembly you cannot see anything but a glimps of light in the lens while trying to see the stars and moon. I get that it may just be for the idea of kids ...see moreof the reviewer's review

This telescope was purchased for a 2 year old. A telescope was a Christmas wish from Santa Claus. Perhaps we received a defective telescope, nothing can be viewed through the scope. I found the brochure today that was in the packaging & I found it humorous to see the phases of the moon with the use ...see moreof the reviewer's review

Love that my daughter can look through it with both eyes. It doesn't have to be used to view the moon, she likes using it to look at birds and critters that hang out in our yard.see moreof the reviewer's review

I would like a refund or exchange for another product this is terrible. We have the binoculars and they are great. He looks at the stars and moon with those but the telescope was a total waste of money. Very very disappointing!!!!see moreof the reviewer's review

Have you ever tried to get your kids to look through binoculars or a telescope? You'll notice they often have trouble with eye placement and are a bit taken aback by the magnification. Well, this kids' version of the telescope accommodates for that by having a wide field of vision and goggles that h...see moreof the reviewer's review

Children that are in awe of the night sky and outer-space are certain to delight in the Educational Insights: GeoSafari® Jr. My First Telescope! It specifies it's for 4-6-year-old children and I feel that's spot on. My son is 1 month and a few days shy of turning six years old yet he is still enamor...see moreof the reviewer's review

This telescope came quickly and was packaged perfectly. Assembly was a breeze (literally 2 minutes). My 3 boys (ages 4-7) have been fighting over this since the day we took it out of the box. They LOVE it... and I love it because it has sparked a lot of educational conversations and it allows them t...see moreof the reviewer's review

My toddler was so excited to open up his the My First Telescope to look at the Super Moon this week. It was easy to put together and really easy to use. He was able to start looking through it right away. My only complaint is that the eyepiece falls off rather easily, but it snaps together again in ...see moreof the reviewer's review
