Perfect for little summertime explorers, or maybe a back to school surprise, Educational Insights introduces the GeoSafari Tuff Scope.
The Tuff Scope is a great starter microscope for kids. It features 400x magnification with 2x continuous zoom, but the highlight, at least for my children was the detachable base. The removal of the base transformed the Tuff Scope into a portable microscope, perfect for exploring the backyard and nearby parks without disturbing nature.
My own children, ages 8 and 5, were thrilled to take their TuffScope outdoors to discover bugs, leaves and rocks in our yard. As a parent, I love the both the portability too, as well as the durability! Ours took a few tumbles onto the patio during the kids' exciting discoveries.
Don't quite need one more summer idea? My 8 year old also pointed out that it could be a great Christmas gift too!
The GeoSafari Tuff Scope is available on Amazon.com for approximately $35.

No compensation was received for this post; we did receive a microscope to try out and see what we could find.
