My kids (aged 2) love these and use them often to look at books close up, and all sorts of other things and it is all great investigative play, which keeps them engaged without me needing to interact much. I also lent them to someone who was running a kids nature walk and, apart from squabbling over the colours, they were really useful and a big hit. They are very robust, they really work, and I think they are brilliant.
These are fantastic!! The children love them!! walking around like detectives or laughing hysterically about how big everything looks!! They are large and chunky which is ideal for little hands and sharing them with their friends. They have already been dropped a few times and still look brand new!!
We haven't officially used these items yet. They look great & chunky but the clip that keeps the magnifier stood up if required is very flimsy & one came broken. With young children I anticipate all the stands will be snapped off before long.
Lovely big magnifying glasses. Very sturdy. Handles perfect for toddlers. A few niggles - the little stands are a bit less strong than the rest of it and one of the glasses has a bit of a bubble in it. However, they are very minor points for all but perfectionists. These are clearly designed well for young children and will more than do the job. For the price, the quality is fantastic. These are absolutely perfect for my child's needs, but would be great in a classroom, a nursery, or for young explorers. They come in 6 bright easily distinguishable colours, so are doing double duty as a tool to teach colours. The size of the magnifying glasses is generous and the grip great for small hands. Delighted with these!!
