Click Here to Read More

The perfect Gift for the budding microscopist or the enthusiastic hobbyist in your family. These compound microscopes are combined with four different accessory packs to suit different budgets.

Compound microscopes are used for viewing cell samples mounted on microscope slides. They are recommended for kids with inquiring minds and the ability to grasp more abstract items that are implicit in two-dimensional (flat) images of cell structures. To view larger specimens such as insects and crystals, go to Stereo Microscope Gift Packages.


The advantage of a compound microscope is the opportunity for cross-generational participation - a chance for Grandpa and Grandma to join in the fun of choosing a specimen and then preparing the slide. Maybe a piece of onion, a cheek swab or pond water?

  • Pack 1: 5 Prepared Slides and the excellent book World of the Microscope
  • Pack 2: Slide & Stain Kit plus Book – everything you need to get started. - RECOMMENDED
