Got it for nephews. Don’t know f hey actually used it or not. It looked fine.
My grandsons both wanted one of these. They were so excited and jumping up and down. They are 6&4. Cannot wait to get pictures of them using it. They are getting used to their binoculars first which they love.
Does not work well. Cannot see through it well unless it is a real clear day and you take it outside.
National Geographic is a respected brand. Our family has been longtime subscribers to the National Geographic magazines for both kids and adults. We own dozens of their Reader and Kids series books. My son's favorite movie is Great Migrations. I've even been to the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C.
The telescope doesn't work. We have tried numerous times we can't see anything with it
I bought this set for my son's 10th birthday to get him interested in the micro and macro world around him.
Nephew loved it.
