My First Lab Microscope Giveaway, the Perfect Gift to Magnify their Love of Science!

My son loves his new Duo-Scope! And, I have to admit, so do I. We spent hours today putting together slides, discovering the different ways to view them with the top and bottom lights on the microscope, changing the light's colors, and experimenting with putting different things under the magnifier. I was super impressed because the microscope is inexpensive enough for a child, but the  image quality is good enough for an adult.

We reviewed the Duo-Scope Starter Kit which is for kids 8+ and only costs $29.99.  It comes with a 40-piece accessory kit including Brine Shrimp Eggs Specimen Vial, Hatchery, 3 Empty Specimen Vials, 1 Yeast Specimen Vial and many more! The starter kit is battery operated and comes with the batteries already inside. Nice!
The blank slides are easy to put together. Here, my son is using tweezers to add chalk to a slide. It looked really cool under the microscope!

 The Duo-Scope Starter Kit is designed for elementary through middle school aged students. It has a dual focus knob and 4X, 10X and 40X magnifiers.
The microscope has 2 light sources to allow it to magnify both slides and solid objects. We dove in without reading the directions so when we realized there was also a bottom light, we were blown away by the new images that appeared! It’s lightweight so you can take it to any room or outside. After raking, let them examine those falling leaves in the yard... or maybe find some dead bugs to look at. What a great way to magnify their love of science!


  One of you will win your choice of microscope!  Ends 11/9/17 at the stroke of midnight. Check out our homepage for more great toy giveaways this week!

    I love the my first Lab WOW Scope! I agree with you, that it's never too early to instill a love of science in kids. These microscopes seem to be a great way to encourage curiosity and inquisitiveness in young minds. Thanks for a great review and many ideas of examining leaves, bugs etc.
