About this product

Small enough to fit in your pocket, but powerful enough to make an ant look the size of an antelope! This real microscope magnifies 30 times using precision optics, and is much easier to use than those old-fashioned desk microscopes! When you unfold the microscope, the light automatically illuminates the area in front of the lens.

Comes with sample slides and all you need to make your own slides. Works indoors and outdoors - specimens do not need to be mounted onto slides. 

The colour manual gives helpful hints about how to get a close-up view of just about anything, and suggests some fascinating subject matter.

Also included in the kit are slides, specimen jars and an activity manual.

* Illuminated pocket microscope
* Sample slide with grasshopper body parts
* Sample slide with textiles
* 3 x Blank microscope slides
* 12 x Transparent sample covers

WARNING: For children over 6 years of age only. For use under adult supervision. Read the instructions before use. Follow them and keep them for reference. Not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts that may represent a choking hazard.
