Product Description:

Travel with Ms. Frizzle and her class through the land of microscopy with this lab kit. This kit includes the things that young researchers need to explore the world of tiny things microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, collecting vial, 20 colorful experiment and instruction cards, prepared slides of fungi and algae, and a data notebook for recording your own scientific observations all packaged in a cool Magic School Bus-shaped box. The microscope operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and is made of plastic with 100, 300 and 600x magnification. Although that sounds powerful, this is still a toy and doesn't give the quality and clarity of higher priced microscopes. I spent some time looking at the prepared slides and had some difficulty with the viewing on 600x but got a pretty good view with the 100 and 300x settings. Overall this is a good starter set for beginning to explore with Ms. Frizzle. - Donna

We needed a microscope so why not get one that teaches the kids the parts of it and isn't high cost for beginners.

Is this age appropriate for a very curious 6 year old?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A 6 year old would love this. Although they would need assistance learning how to set it up. My 9 year old can do it with no help. But my 7 year old would need help. Its not a high powered microscope but for the cost it's perfect for kids. It also stays in the great box when not using it.
