GeoSafari Tuff Scope Review and Giveaway

Hey Neighbors!

I have the perfect item for your budding scientist or explorer. It is from Educational Insights and is a GeoSafari Tuff Scope ($39.99). This is really neat! It is very well made and can be used as a regular microscope, or a handheld out in the field. The Tuff Scope is recommended for ages 5+ or K+. The Tuff Scope requires 3 AA batteries, that are not included. This microscope will bring many hours of exploration fun to your children. Allow them to collect specimens and then spend time studying them. GeoSafari's Tuff Scope comes with one slide that already has a cotton fiber (this looks so amazing!), and then 2 blank slides. There is also an attachment where you can take pictures with the Tuff Cam (sold separately). Up to 400x magnification with the microscope and 2x as a field scope. The zoom magnification is 50x-100x, 100x-200x and 200x-400x. I was amazed at how clear this little microscope was. Another feature I really like is that there is a built in storage drawer in the base of the microscope. Perfect for storing specimens, as long as there are no live bugs!





Both my daughters had a great time exploring with the Tuff Scope. We even tried looking at saliva! The specimens you can look at are endless. You could even have the keep a little journal of what they have looked at and a description of how they looked.





Now, I want to take a little time to introduce you to Educational Insights if you have never before visited their website. They have some of the very best products for teachers and home-schoolers. I have reviewed several of their products and have never been disappointed. There is so much information available on their site. You can search by subject, theme, brand, etc. Make sure you visit their site. You can also find them on Facebook where you will often find out about new products, specials, etc. So if you haven't already, you might want to like their page. Tell them At the Fence sent you!
