As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
Portable indoor outdoor Microscope

Overall, this is a really cool product that I would buy for gifts or recommend to friends. We had some glitches with buying it, but it really is a great toy! We love that there is an integrated light which makes viewing things that close possible. We also love that we can view virtually anything up close, not just things on slides.
My son wanted a small, portable microscope and we found this Smart Lab kit at our local Smart Brain shop. They let us open the package to see what it really was, which was really helpful. We noticed that the one we opened had a hair or scratch on the lens, so they opened another one for me, which we bought. In getting it home we opened it and did not get the 3 blank slides, but had 4 duplicates of prep aired slides. The shop was quick to help with that as well.
Also, the first evening the included batteries quit working.
I wanted to tell the good and bad, but the good outweighs the bad.

This was given to an 8 year old grandson who has a very inquisitive mind. He got it out and did a few of the experiments with it on Christmas day, but was busy playing with his cousins the rest of that time. I'm sure when he is at home he will find many things to examine with it and enjoy it very much.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
