I have fond memories of using my dad's childhood microscope when I was little, ancient and beautifully fashioned and all packed up in a beautiful wooden box. My brother and I would compete to find the most interesting things to look at through the lens, from blood drops to tiny insects from the garden and yes occasionally things like bogies (what can I say-we were typical kids!). When I had my little girl I bought a similar microscope, but it was a little bit trickier to work than I remembered. So when I spotted this one I bought it as part of her fifth birthday present. **What you get** You get a small handheld microscope with a small detachable ... Read the complete review

I bought this toy microscope as a stocking filler for my daughter for Christmas 2010. I think it was on offer for £5.99 on Amazon UK, I used a lot of Amazon vouchers pre Christmas so I would have got free delivery on the super saver deal. I wasn't particularly looking for a microscope, just browsing, I think I was looking at the HotUKDeals website when I noticed this, saw it had some decent reviews and thought it sounded good value. The price on Amazon seems quite variable, I've seen it change from £7.49 to £6.16 whilst writing this review. It's also available on the Natural History Museum website for £8.00, sales of this product support the Natural History ... Read the complete review

My 9 year old son had lots of lovely presents for Christmas including a small pocket microscope. To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this little microscope but have happily been proved wrong!

The microscope comes well packaged in a colourful cardboard box with inner protective plastic holder. We have kept the box to replace the microscope when it is not in use. The microscope is quite small measuring about 4 ½ inches in height and weighs just 132 grams. It is made of plastic and has a ... Read the complete review

At school recently I was given the task of spending some of the Science budget. Now if the word "Science" hadn't preceded the word "budget" I doubt I would have had a problem spending a bit of money on things I could class as being "school related!" After a bit of searching in the Science cupboard I realised the school only had four microscopes that I could find... hardly enough to use in a classroom with a class full of children. Therefore the first thing I decided to purchase was some more microscopes to enable them to be used more often in the classroom. After having a hunt online for microscopes I realised that a lot of the ... Read the complete review

Intro I had found myself with a balance of £5 in my Amazon account, and with no intended purchases foreseen decided to have a little browse to see if anything interesting could be had for my fiver. Coincidently previously I had been trying to read the writing on something, but it was way too small print for my old eyes. So when I pondered upon this knacky little thing I thought what the heck it's only a fiver. National Museum Pocket Microscope My first impression on opening the arrived package was that it was smaller than I had envisaged. With peacock plumage emblazoned all over the box it look very blue and green. A small white ... Read the complete review
