I'm very frustrated right now about this. My son really enjoyed this telescope but he put a little too much pressure on the tripod one time and the plastic piece that holds the 3 support arms in the middle at the bottom of the tripod broke. I called customer support to try to order a replacement pie...see moreof the reviewer's review

This product was nicely packaged and was ready to go out of the box with only a few steps required. Assembly took very little time for me and as the age recommendation is 8 and up (my kids are a little younger but I want to get them started), I could easily see how kids would have no problem (and wo...see moreof the reviewer's review

My son received this as a gift for Christmas this year. He's only 5, so some of it is a bit advanced for him, but he doesn't seem to notice. He is having a great time jumping from planet to planet, learning all kinds of fun facts.see moreof the reviewer's review

No issues with the tripod either as some people have noted. My in-laws have a much heavier (and expensive) telescope in their living room. While this one can'...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a great family telescope! It is sturdy yet lightweight and great for use with kids, but attractive enough to reside in my living/dining room for stargazing indoors during the winter months. Set up was very easy - my kids (ages 6 and 8) barely needed the directions. Even my 3 year old figured...see moreof the reviewer's review

I have always worried about getting a telescope for my son. I was worried that it would be too heavy or cumbersome. I was worried that it would be hard to put together. I was worried that he would not be able to handle it because it would break easily. This telescope was the perfect thing to change ...see moreof the reviewer's review
