Buying a kid a microscope, then, requires a little bit of care.

The best digital microscope is not as good as the best traditional one, generally, yet. Part of the problem is portability and part of the problem is that pointing and clicking at a specimen is not the same as positioning a slide and moving the dials to get it into focus. Kids gain a lot of understanding about the function of each part of the microscope during that process. The views are generally not as crisp with a digital microscope, either, but we found a few that we are happy to recommend in our kids microscope reviews. One major advantage is that digital scopes can take pictures. That is a pretty major advantage that outweighs some of the disadvantages, depending on your child. Our panel of testers aged 8 to 12 enjoyed the digital scopes because they could point them at their own eyeballs and really anything nearby. When it comes to the traditional uses of a microscope, though, the digital scopes still fall short, at least at this price point. Children on our panel wrote: "kind of dark," "you have to hold your hand very still" and "hard to see" about the digital scopes we reviewed.

Possibly even more important to parents than achievement in academics and future careers is the worthy cause of letting kids enjoy being kids. They naturally want to explore the world. The best kids microscopes allow them to do that on a different level. They can see objects from their everyday lives in a whole new way. When you see the wonder on a child's face the first time they get a look at a strand of their hair or an onion skin in their very own microscope you will know you made a good investment.

This book is highly recommended if buying a kids microscope.

This battery-powered microscope features the same quality glass optics and sturdy metal frame as our regular Kids scope, but with a more versatile illumination system. The bright LED light is powered by a rechargeable battery pack, which means that it can be used without a cord, making it a take-anywhere scope that's great for introducing kids to microscopy. Use it outdoors where AC power is not available or indoors when it is inconvenient to have a power cord in the way.
