My two youngest daughters (6 and 9) were thrilled to experiment with the Moonscope. My nine year-old was a little disappointed when we first tried to look through it at night but, just like the instructions suggest, familiarizing yourself with the Moonscope during the day really helps with learning ...see moreof the reviewer's review

My daughter is obsessed with Nancy B's Moonscope! My daughter (age 6) loves Science and is always asking questions about the night sky. This was the perfect starter telescope for her since it is small, lightweight, and durable. It is easy to carry so she can tote it around wherever we go. The bookle...see moreof the reviewer's review

My son was so excited to have a telescope. We took it out once and the lenses were lost and can not be replaced. I wish there was built in storage because now we have something to throw away and never really got to use.see moreof the reviewer's review

My 6yo had been begging for a telescope since his teacher mentioned the word astronomy and taught the class about ancient stargazers. Luckily, we were chosen to review this telescope and my son got straight to work trying to predict the future from the stars. Out of the box he was able to assemble a...see moreof the reviewer's review

My son is four, so a little younger than the recommended age of this telescope, but I think that it works very well for the younger crowd- he was able to view the moon on a few clear nights, and really enjoyed the fact that this was his "super eye" to see something so far away. Although he is too yo...see moreof the reviewer's review

Mom of 2 2 years ago
I am not a scientist or a stargazing enthusiast, just a mom looking to interest her children (ages 5 and 7) in science. My children have enjoyed playing with this telescope and looking at various things with it. I cannot say how it would compare to a real telescope, because I don't have one, but fro...see moreof the reviewer's review

My 6 year old really enjoyed this toy. It's a little tough to get it to hold steady, but other than that I have no complaints and think it would be a great unique gift for a 6-10 year old.see moreof the reviewer's review
