As a buyer of wonderful, creative toys for children, sometimes you have to search beyond the typical toy companies to find an ingenious plaything for children – and you never know where that might take you! We buy from a variety of “non-traditional” toy companies, and because of this, we are able to offer one of the coolest first microscopes around for kids – the My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope! Let’s go “under the microscope” to see why …
Let me introduce you to a company called C & A Scientific Co., a manufacturer of medical/scientific supplies. This company makes advanced microscopes and serious science supplies, but they also – luckily for us – make science fun for kids with a small but wonderful line of microscopes and supplies, our favorite of which is the My First Lab Duo-Scope! This Duo-Scope is not only a great price for a piece of “real” science equipment, but it provides kids with an exciting investigative experience that will help foster a love for the sciences.
But, what exactly does this microscope do that is so special? Well, it offers children 2 ways to explore the world around them – a basic biological scope to view slides and a traditional dissecting scope to view specimens – with dual lighting to illuminate slides from below or shine on objects from above. This Duo-Scope also features wonderful magnification with a 10x eyepiece with 4x, 10x and 40x objectives, as well as 40x, 100x and 400x magnification with the real optical glass lenses. Just imagine how kids’ specimen must look to them using this microscope!
To help kids with their studies and collection of specimen, the My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope comes with 5 blank slides, 4 prepared slides, 2 bottles of stain, forceps, scalpel, a plastic test tube, a plastic Petri dish and more. Kids will turn into little laboratory technicians in no time, using their advanced supplies to learn and explore. And nothing will be safe from their curious minds – bugs under rocks, pet hair, leaves, and more will find their way under the lights for further inspection by budding scientists.
So, while we are in the business of selling toys, we know that just because kids are younger, doesn’t mean that every item they want has to be a toy version of the real thing – it sometimes should be an age-appropriate version of the real thing! This notion is especially true with children’s science items – kids deserve a microscope that works just like a real one does, and parents should not have to pay real microscope prices to get a quality kids version.
And the My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope fits the bill – it is a quality microscope made by a scientific company that includes all the wonderful features that kids will love, at a reasonable price point, which makes science come to life before kids’ eyes! And while you will find this Duo-Scope at our toy store, it is more than your average toy, providing great “real life” play value for young scientific minds.
And, that’s why we love the My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope, and we hope you do too!
