Do you love having a microscope for your kids or do you wish you would have left it at the store?

Have you ever used one?  What type and what did you like about it?

We've had one for a couple of years and we love it! It doesn't get used consistently, but the kids have a blast with it every time they "find" it again. It came with petrie dishes and slides, so they learned how to take care of the 'scope, how to prepare slides, how to use a petrie dish.

Ours is a real microscope and not a toy, but we found a great deal on it, so it didn't cost a fortune. Excellent investment.

This is good to have even when school is "not" in session.

We plan on buying used ones from the local college.  THey sell them cheap to schools and homeschoolers.  So we plan on buying at least one once the kiddos are much older LOL.

Boy, I'd really love to know which ones out there are good quality! My older son loves microscopes, but we always end up bringing them back to the store because they're cheap and break.  Any recommendations?
