You're trying to get dinner on the table, but can't because Dad and the children are at the island piled around the microscope looking at the compound eye of a dead Cycadia that Dad brought home.
“Oh excuse me, am I in the way?”
Of course I was there looking at it too.
Maybe I shouldn't say anything.
BTW, we worked hard to earn enough “excellent dollars” to purchase a brock magiscope . We had seen one at an Elijah Company seminar waaaaaaaay back. Not long after we married. We talked then, about getting one someday when we had children. 12 years later…
It has lived up to every expectation. Except I cannot get the children to take it outside– go figure. They want to take everything else outside but the one thing I've told them they CAN take outside.
I highly recommend it–it is reasonably priced ($119) and then you add on the accessories you want. It is easy to use, no electricity needed, no major wheels to focus, just have to make sure you have enough light where you're examining things.
And they have an unconditional warranty– if it breaks, for ANY reason, they will replace it. (so good when you have rough and tumble boys in the home). You can take it out of the holder and explore anything with it.
If you're in the market for a microscope, go check it out… if you're not in the market for a microscope, go check it out… and put it on your list. It's that good. Just know that you won't get it right away because they make every magiscope personally to your order.
