Edu Science 4050
Advantages: Cheap, Easy To Use & Great Results.
Disadvantages: Too Basic For Some.
If you've read one of my recent reviews you'll know I've gone on a bit of a spending rampage in an attempt to modernise my science cupboard at school! My latest acquisition is twenty Edu Science 4050 Binoculars which have been really useful across the whole curriculum. I can always remember my dad keeping binoculars in his car's glove box when I was younger and since then I can't actually remember the last time I saw or used any binoculars!
The Edu Science 4050 Binoculars are dark blue in colour with a bit of black on them and really just look like any standard binoculars. They're approximately 10cm by 10cm by 4cm so can easily be held in a child's or an adult's hands. They're lightweight as they weigh just 748g and they're made of thick plastic which means they're quite sturdy in the hands of children. Overall they're quite basic looking, there's nothing overly special about their design.
The features include coated glass lenses and a sensitive focus knob which is easy to use but can take a bit of getting used to especially by heavy handed children. As this is the only actual control on the binoculars that can be adjusted it makes them really easy to use. They also come with a carry pouch which helps to protect the glass lenses when they're being stored and a lint free cloth which is ideal for cleaning the glass lenses easily.
They're priced at just £9.99 a pair which does seem to be fairly cheap - however the lack of features is reflected in the price but for a basic pair of binoculars that focus easily enough they're ideal. Edu Science are a leader in educational science products and they've done a really good job with these - they're ideal for watching birds or wildlife which are the main things we've used them for so far. Basic... but do the job... four stars!
Thanks for reading.
Summary: A basic pair of binoculars from Edu Science.
