Brock Microscopes are practically child-proof and the optics are fantastic! We have the model #70 along with additional eyepieces and objectives and carrying cases. The Brock Magiscope is #1 in science and nature centers and is the world's only American made microscope.
We have the Toyops brand Just Look microscope also which is portable with an LED light source and 10X magnification. This one is perfect for the young scientist on the go or for any hobbyist who needs an up close view of any rock, mineral, plant, or insect.
