Decent pocket telescope...not so great microscope

3 out of 5 stars

My child liked product, but more for the telescopic features. He never really figured out how to make it work as a microscope, and neither could I! It worked fairly well as a pocket-sized telescope and we were able to see leaves at the tops of very tall trees. Anything we tried to view using it as a microscope was blurry and out of focus no matter what we tried. It's not the most durable item and broke relatively easily, despite trying to be careful with it. So, fun at first with limited activities, but not designed well for microscope features or to hold up with a careful 7-8yo's play.

Disappointment

My son (7) had fun with this the day it arrived. He really hasn't picked it up since. I gave it a try and found it hard to look through and really couldn't see anything. I think he had the same problem. When the scope arrived, it was not in the factory package. It split open and the scope was loose and had come apart. I'm not sure if it was put back together correctly because it came with no type of "manual" or instructions on how to put it together or how to use it.

Needs work

This is a great concept but needs some work on execution. It's finicky and needs too much work to get objects in focus. Also felt flimsy and I was worried that it would easily break. My kids are very gentle on toys and they both said they were worried about twisting it too far and it falling apart.

Fun for my son, but quality not the greatest

My 7-yr old son received this pocket scope. The pocket clip fell off almost immediately, but the telescope / microscope component of this pen has held up for a couple weeks now. He enjoys playing spy games and has added it to his spy toy collection. It doesn't seem like the sturdiest toy, but it's held up thus far, in terms of use and enjoyment. However, it's more of a novelty toy. The pen can't be focused, so the microscope component of this only works if you put something on the table and put this directly on top of it. You could really only look at a dollar bill, or insect wing, or something very flat like that, so it has limited usefulness. The telescope end of the pen also does not focus, but it seems OK for looking at things that are far away. My son would give this 5 stars for fun, and I give it 3 stars for quality, so we compromised at 4 stars. My son received this as a product tester, in exchange for an honest review. This opinion is all our own.
