Kids Microscope

Item# MI-1100STD

Get a kid-friendly introductory microscope without sacrificing quality! This is a great introductory microscope for kids ages 5-13, allowing them to easily look close-up at leaves, insects, pond life, slides, and more. The achromatic glass optics and sturdy frame make it a valuable educational instrument, far superior to toy microscopes. (It's also a good choice for those who can't spend extra on a microscope like the Home microscope model, and it can be used for high school work in a pinch.)

The three objective lenses and 10x eyepiece provide magnification levels of 40, 100, and 400x. Just take it out of the box, turn on the illuminator, place a prepared slide on the stage, and your kids will immediately be delighted with clear, colorful, detailed images from their microscope.

This microscope comes with a set of five prepared slides, a spare bulb, and complete operating instructions. Home Science Tools model with five-year warranty. Ages 5 & up with adult supervision.

About the Kids Microscope

Quality. This is not a cheap, toy microscope! It features real glass optics and a metal frame. Each Kids microscope is inspected by our in-house quality control specialist, who checks everything from the optics to the mechanics. Nothing that we are not 100% satisfied with will ever be sent to you, so your kids can be sure of getting a good scope right out of the box.

Five-year Warranty. Unlike many other inexpensive microscopes you might see online, Home Science Tools guarantees that your microscope will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for five years. If you have any problems, we are happy to repair or replace your microscope immediately. We work directly with select factories in China to have our Kids microscopes manufactured to our specifications, with high standards so your children get a safe, long-lasting, and fun-to-use scope.

Great Beginner Scope Review by
I ordered this microscope for my kids to use with their anatomy curriculum for homeschool. It is a GREAT beginner scope for my kids that are 8 and 5. It has a very good resolution and magnification. My kids are very excited to use it. I was very impressed with the quality. It is made from solid materials and does not feel flimsy at all. Much better than some of the beginner scopes you find in stores. I feel we will get many good years of use with this microscope.
Easy to use Review by
I needed a simple microscope to assist students just learning about microscopes and cells. This one is simple and helped the students to become more involved with their lessons.
Portable & Kid-Friendly Review by
Great microscope for the price. Battery charges quickly. Very light weight, making it ideal for a trip to the park or pond. It is easy to use, and I will be very comfortable letting my 8 and 9 year old "scientists" use it without supervision. This microscope would not be my first choice for a high-schooler, but if it's all you can afford, the clarity is reasonable.
very useful Review by
I work with elementary and middle school kids. The kids are loving learning to use it. It is very easy to use.
