Faiek, South Africa. 22 December 2016

Sadly not what I expected, more a toy than a beginner set for kids. Cant see anything with the microscope or Telescope. Rather disappointing actually. Rather buy the USB Digital Microscope with 400x Zoom , its a bit more but worth it

Carleen, South Africa. 13 October 2016

unless it is being used as a toy its a replica of what a real telescope / microscope should be! The lenses are foggie.

Isabel, South Africa. 30 December 2016

We purchased this product for our 7 year old daughter. The telescope is still ok... not great but at least you can see a bit... The microscope does not work at all. It is very flimsy and made of cheap materials. We are very disappointed.

Mogamat Saied, South Africa. 21 October 2016

Superb value. Exceeded expectations.

Byron, South Africa. 4 November 2016

Huge disappointment, all rubbish plastic and trying to see anything through the telescope is impossible😡

Sego, South Africa. 14 January 2017

Regret buying this ...

Zaheer, South Africa. 26 November 2016

From the box the Microscope was defective. the adjuster n the bulb didn't function.My sons birthday gift a total anticlimax. Telescope not going to even comment. a waste of money.

Yael, South Africa. 26 December 2016

Wonderful Christmas gift

Tom, South Africa. 22 October 2016

Waste of time, wish I hadn't purchased it.

richard, South Africa. 12 December 2016

Not even for a beginner. Impossible to focus either the microscope or the telescope enough to really use it properly.
Description says there are different eyepieces, there are not - only one size.

Mamokete, South Africa. 8 January 2017

I think it was a good deal. My kids love it but I spend more time with it. Great entry level scopes for the budding scientists.

Olivia, South Africa. 30 December 2016

Extremely disappointed! Especially the telescope...no clear view, nothing.
The product looks much better than it works.
