Talking Microscope


I love this Microscope. Sweet boy had been asking for a Microscope so I thought I would start with this $40 Microscope from Mardel, a teacher and Christian store. It is called GeoSafari Talking Microscope

The Microscope comes with slides of bugs. The slides have a code the kids enter and the microscope tells them all about the bug. It then has quizzes. They love this microscope and we have learned so much about bugs!

You can also put anything under it to see it 5 times its size. We looked at leaves and flower petals to look under the scope.

that looks pretty cool. My brother got Ebi-kun a 'real' microscope last year but it is a bit tricky to use, I suppose he will grow into it!

Great timing! A friend of mine just called me and said she picked this up for $5 at a rummage sale. She won't give it up, but called because she knew Kal-El would love it and invited him over to play with it. Now I know what she was talking about. Very neat.

MBT: Wow, what a bargain. This would be better designed if you could program the microscope for more slides.

Jo, we hope to get a 'real' microscope in the near future. Hopefully used! I know it will get a lot of use.

This was the first microscope we bought and Alex really enjoyed it...now Jordan is toying with it. I never even realized it actually magnified things "for real". We always just used the slides that came with it!
