Product Description

A set of six prepared microscope slides of insect legs that show how the leg of an insect changes shape structure and size depending on how the insect moves and what it does. Honeybee legs are quite amazing. One pair has 'baskets' to carry pollen, another pair has spikes to push the pollen out in the hive and yet a third pair has a 'comb' to clean the spike when they have finished. All this can be seen with a microscope in these slides.

I bought a kids microscope from a charity shop for £2.50 for my 6 year old daughter. I looked online for prepared slides as didn't fancy doing that myself as no idea how to do it properly and came across these slides on Amazon. There are 6 slides in a rigid plastic box with a lid that clips shut. There are slide holders on the side of the box to keep them securely in place. The contents of my slides were as follows:
1) Honeybee Worker 1st leg (cs)
2) Honeybee Worker 2nd leg (cs)
3) Honeybee Worker 3rd leg (cs)
4) Housefly leg (cs)
5) Mantis leg (cs)
6) Butterfly leg (cs)

I used 100x magnification on the little microscope to view them and the results were fabulous. I have bought other sets of Apex Microscope Prepared Slides and they are all brilliant. Hope to collect the whole set so that as my daughter grows she can view each of them with more interest and knowledge. In my humble opinion, these slides are amazing value for money as will last for years and you really don't need a powerful microscope to view them. Perfect for beginners like me and my daughter!

Given to my 6 year old as a Christmas gift along with a small microscope and he loved it! Very clear slides that are interesting for children to look at.
