To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
With the pandemic virus we are home schooling 5 of our grand-kids, covering pre-k up to 4th grade. These are just perfect, and we use them all the time. Getting 6 in the package for a very reasonable price was perfect for us. The thickness keeps them from breaking if they fall or get dropped, and they do, the thick handles making them easier for smaller kids to hold on to. We examine slides of bugs, leaves we gathered, and cutting open things like Lima beans from science experiments to check out inside the bean. All 5 get excited when it's a day we get to use our magnifying glasses! I highly recommend these as they are a huge success for a wide age range and grade level of kids.
After searching for good magnifying glasses for my four-year-olds, I stumbled across these ones. I avoided buying them for a long time because of the price, but I wish I hadn't! My kids have loved these from the moment we opened the box! I was so surprised by these, mostly because we bought them used. But were they? I don't think so, they look brand new with absolutely no wear! Not a single scratch on them when they arrived, and after a month of use by my family, they are still in great condition! We take two of them everywhere! The park, on walks, and even when we go to Grandma's house! The kids always find something to look at an are so excited to have these! The stand is another bonus, as it makes a great center piece to our table, encouraging the kids to explore their world everyday. Overall, this was a great purchase and I highly recommend!
I originally got these as a gift for a two-year-old who is really interested in bugs. Instead of getting a single magnifier, a got a set thinking that at least a couple would be broken plus his parents could join in his discoveries. But none have broken and now he has a younger sister to follow him around their yard. His parents sent me a video showing him watching some of his specimens he'd caught in a jar, using one of the magnifiers. I think he likes it!
My grand kids love using them. The only thing I am expecting to happen sooner rather than later is that the stand will get snapped off. It's a bit brittle. My grands have fun looking through them and using them as 'glasses' and flowers. My grandson uses them like 'levers' like on 'Octonauts' kids show. It's so cute.
5 stars all the way around. Purchased for my daycare and the children love these. We love at all sorts of things with them. They are well constructed. The children love the bright colors. I love the storage tray for them.
BEST TOY EVER!!! I have been raising and working with children for over forty years now, so I have scene my share of toys and play. Our triplet grandchildren were coming to town (18 mo. Old) and I needed to add some new toys to our collection. The TOTAL surprise, HEAVY hitter, were these Magnifying glasses and their rainbow of eyecatching color. I knew these toys were for pre-kindergartners, and so I expected them to be somewhat disposable. So far they are surviving and thriving with hard use. Super happy with this purchase! When/if they break I will buy more!
Order these for my daycare. Received them quickly and the items are so kid friendly! Easy for the children to grip. The glass is easy to look through. I thought they might be a bit cloudy. But they are not!! Wonderful addition to my science and math area!
