Pocket MicroscopeThis pocket microscope is an ideal tool to start studying small worlds. It gives an amazingly clear picture and is very fun to use. Every kid I've given one to has started to explore with it instantly.

Works great alone, or can be useful alongside a more powerful lab microscope. (see chart below)

What makes it so good?

  • A simple focus lever means that even a six year old can use it immediately.
  • The wide field zoom lens makes the image clearer than in most pocket microscopes.
  • The LED bulb makes the image bright, and makes the included batteries last for years.
  • It's compact, durable, and there's no set-up involved. This makes it perfect for outdoor exploring!
