GeoSafari® Pocket Scope is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent pocket telescope...not so great microscope My child liked product, but more for the telescopic features. He never really figured out how to make it work as a microscope, and neither could I! It worked fairly well as a pocket-sized telescope and we were able to see leaves at the tops of very tall trees. Anything we tried to view using it as a microscope was blurry and out of focus no matter what we tried. It's not the most durable item and broke relatively easily, despite trying to be careful with it. So, fun at first with limited activities, but not designed well for microscope features or to hold up with a careful 7-8yo's play.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointment My son (7) had fun with this the day it arrived. He really hasn't picked it up since. I gave it a try and found it hard to look through and really couldn't see anything. I think he had the same problem. When the scope arrived, it was not in the factory package. It split open and the scope was loose and had come apart. I'm not sure if it was put back together correctly because it came with no type of "manual" or instructions on how to put it together or how to use it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs work This is a great concept but needs some work on execution. It's finicky and needs too much work to get objects in focus. Also felt flimsy and I was worried that it would easily break. My kids are very gentle on toys and they both said they were worried about twisting it too far and it falling apart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for my son, but quality not the greatest My 7-yr old son received this pocket scope. The pocket clip fell off almost immediately, but the telescope / microscope component of this pen has held up for a couple weeks now. He enjoys playing spy games and has added it to his spy toy collection. It doesn't seem like the sturdiest toy, but it's held up thus far, in terms of use and enjoyment. However, it's more of a novelty toy. The pen can't be focused, so the microscope component of this only works if you put something on the table and put this directly on top of it. You could really only look at a dollar bill, or insect wing, or something very flat like that, so it has limited usefulness. The telescope end of the pen also does not focus, but it seems OK for looking at things that are far away. My son would give this 5 stars for fun, and I give it 3 stars for quality, so we compromised at 4 stars. My son received this as a product tester, in exchange for an honest review. This opinion is all our own.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed It didn't come with any instructions, so it was a bit confusing at first, we were able to figure out what side to look thru by using the picture on the package. It works ok as a telescope for far away, but the microscope part my kids couldn't figure out how to see anything up close, it was all a blur. It was tricky for them to figure out how to focus (8 yo girl, 6 yo boy), eventually they gave up. We have a big backyard, so it was fun to look at things far away, but eventually they became frustrating with the lack of focus they could control and cast it aside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs directions I received this product for my son in exchange for an honest review. He was very excited to try it as soon as it arrived. We got it out of the packaging and I noticed there were no instructions other than a few pictures on the back. The telescope end seems to work ok. We could not figure out how to see anything through the microscope end. I did turn the tube a little, but feared it might come apart after reading other reviews. It seemed to bring things into focus a little more but not enough to see details on small objects. My son had fun with the telescope end but was frustrated with the microscope end.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really cool toy until it falls apart My son received this for Christmas - it worked great - so exciting to see him inspecting EVERYTHING!!! But then as he was focusing, it fell apart and a bunch of pieces came tumbling out. We have tried numerous times to reinsert the tubes and lenses - unsuccessfully. It should have directions for just this problem! And maybe glue the ends on!!! Very disappointing to lose such a fun and educational toy in this way! I say I would recommend to a friend BUT only if they immediately glue in the screw caps first!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great fun..for 15 minutes The first one I bought was completely out of focus, not matter what you did, you could not use it, so I brought it back to give it another shot. This one worked fine and is a great item, but fell apart in 15 minutes. If the company could manage to make it more durable since the main users are children, that would be helpful. I hate throwing money away, but one, hour and a half trip to replace it is all I'm going to do..the second one ended up in the garbage after just an hour....15 minutes of use and 45 minutes of trying to put it back together to make it work.
