disappointed...bought this for a friends daughter...she was so very excited....however when it was all put together it did not work...could not see anything through neither piece...not sure if only this one is defective or what...am going to return it and see....i am hoping for my friend to be able to get something similar not even sure how the return will go since i am in Vegas and she is in Florida..and i bought it on my Red Card...i wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is getting for a gift...may be more hassle than worth

Hi Cookie I'm so sorry our GeoSafari Telescope & Microscope Set didn't work as expected. If you need any help getting this resolved please reach out to us at email@example.com.
The online description says that the microscope has up to 1200x magnification. It is actually up to 600x so we were quite disappointed with that. Also could be a bit more heavy duty, seems cheaply made. Not bad for a younger child though as a first set.
