Editorial Review: Review:
The Discovery World Telescope Microscope Lab Kit contains a 6" optical microscope with 100x, 200x and 300x magnification and an extending telescope with a 20x40 mm objective lens (good close-ups of things 100 metres away and useful for bird-spotting in your own or your neighbour's garden.) There is also a magnifying glass, 2blank slides, 1 specimen slide, 12 specimen covers, 2 specimen vials and what calls itself "a fully illustrated instruction manual"--a single sheet of paper with safety notes, instructions and a few black-and-white pictures. The instructions are clear, but brief.

The instructions advise that the kit is for children over 8 years old, under adult supervision. Although basic, it provides enough for a keen young science enthusiast to make exciting forays into the magical world around them. The telescope is made of plastic but works very well (Dad might borrow it for a chance to check the roof properly). The design isn't stunning and the packaging is slightly flimsy, with a couple of unfortunate printing errors on the box, so a child more concerned with appearances and less dedicated to knowledge might not be so keen, but the basic equipment for educational investigation is there. If you'd like to splash out more, the Discovery World Microscope Lab and the superbly designed Science Museum Microscope Set contain rather more extensive microscope equipment, without the telescope. (Age 8 and up) --Rebecca Pickering
