I am thinking of getting my 6-year-old daughter a microscope for christmas.
I have a few candidates picked out:
Boreal Cordless Student Compound Microscope with LED Illuminator and Moveable Stage
400x Illuminated Basic Student Microscope & Cordless, LED Model
Brock and Shinco Microscopes
The Brock "Magiscope", in particular, looks very rugged. *I am concerned, however, that the simplicity and ruggedness comes at the cost of image quality and ease of focusing.
What are your suggestions?
