Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creature Peeper (Toy)
I bought this for my two year old a couple of days ago and it was an instant success. She immediately liked the idea that she could keep bugs contained and get a good look at them.
There were two obvious issues for me though. The first is that which everyone has identified - the cone shaped lid falls off very easily. I had to solve this by putting masking tape on the inside of the lid to give a lot more friction.
The second problem was that both the magnifying glasses are out of focus. The top one slightly, but the bottom one quite a lot. I have very good eyesight with no need for correction and I have great difficulty focusing on the underneath of the bugs :( My daughter doesn't seem to care though so it is good enough for me!
On the plus side, once the lid falling off problem is sorted this is a great source of interest and enjoyment to my little girl. It is easy to handle for her small hands and gives her a safe and controlled way to get up close and personal with creepy crawlies who otherwise scare her when they jump, fly or scurry at her.
