What are you getting your child for Christmas this year? A Wii? “Guitar Hero”? An iPod? How about a digital microscope camera that is small enough to fit in his hand? The Dino-Lite digital microscopes have been flying off the shelves since their entry into the microscopy world, making them the “IT” item to have right now.
We just posted a selection of holiday specials that run the gamut at microscope.com. We are offering everything from compound microscopes for kids to Dino-Lite digital microscopes to research-grade binocular microscopes for medical students and more experienced microscopists.
Many of these holiday specials are bundled with prepared microscope slides, Usborne’s popular book “The World of the Microscope,” and some even come with an innovative “specimen” — an edible, grape-flavored cricket lollipop! Farm-raised in the USA and sugar-free, your kid can view and photograph the lollipop … then EAT it!
Even though kids today are obsessed with the Wii or playing “Rock Band,” it’s nice to know they still get captivated by science. Sure, I was all about my Atari 2600 and “Mrs. Pac-Man” back in the 1980s, but I remember well my Rock Tumbler, ant farm and various Chia pets. Science was (and still is) a lot of fun.
Atomic Elephant Science & Toy Co. released its list of the 12 best-selling toys of 2008. Among the top toys is Fly Trap Friends, Blizzard in a Bucket and Ant Jungle. Hey, it looks like the ants have finally left the farm!
Today we introduced our Halloween special at Microscope.com. We’re offering an entry-level, elementary school microscope with our “Creepy Crawlies” slide kit and a microscope book for $119. While we understand that Halloween is a time for candy and not necessarily gift-giving, why not invest in this deal for your child? One thing’s for sure … it won’t rot his teeth out and he’ll probably love it.
