Reviews around color (5.00 of 5)

  • The only thing I liked about this telescope was the way it looked, the colors it was.
  • It has held up durability wise, has fun bright colors and really magnifies objects
  • I gave it a one star rating because the colors are cool.
  • Although my 2 year loves the colors and to look at it, this item was a waste of money.

Reviews around height (5.00 of 5)

  • The short, non-adjustable height makes it easy to set up & easy to carry around the house
  • I had to put it on a chair to make it the right height for them to see without getting on the
  • The one real downside for me is that because the tripod isn't tall enough to set it on the ground to use, and isn't really that adjustable, you end up needing to find a table just the right height to use
  • Both felt a little awkward for the kids, like it wasn't quite the right height, but they were able to make it work.

Reviews around way (5.00 of 5)

  • It is a child's toy and a great way to spark interest in using a telescope, but it is only about 10x magnification
  • It is the perfect way to introduce astronomy to little kids!
  • Setup took less than a minute, and that included mom (me) doing that thing where you don't read the instructions - I put the telescope on the tripod backwards and my son quickly corrected me and dad turned it the right way
  • Purchased as a Christmas gift and the telescope itself has been assembled incorrect from the factory so the telescope does not work the correct way.
  • Not in a clear-enough-to-satisfy-a-child way, but in a twenty-beers-in-an-hour way

Reviews around gift (4.40 of 5)

  • Overall, I'd say this was a terrific purchase, and it definitely made a perfect gift for our son
  • I felt so bad that I gave a crappy gift, that I got back on Amazon and ordered her a nicer telescope.
  • This was a brilliant gift in the sense that my son was overjoyed to learn of his first telescope
  • This is a durable product and a great gift for little learners.(I received this product in exchange for an honest review
  • It's a fine gift for a younger child who wants to "pretend" to look into space but if your child is interested in actually looking at the moon it is pretty worthless.

Reviews around moon (4.26 of 5)

  • You can see stars, planets of they're out and the moon pretty well
  • This is a fun, educational telescope that will inspire you children to love the moon, stars and outer space
  • I looked at the "super moon" and all I saw was a blurry white blob -- no detail at all
  • First we had to add washers in order to get it to tighten, then we spent half an hour trying to find something through it, when we finally did the moon was blurry
  • My toddler was so excited to open up his the My First Telescope to look at the Super Moon this week.

Reviews around child (4.16 of 5)

  • NO focus on it and unless your child is like 10" tall it has to be set on a table
  • I think the age range of 4-6 years is appropriate as children older than 6 would not be as impressed in it
  • This is a fun, educational telescope that will inspire you children to love the moon, stars and outer space
  • This magnifies objects in a way that children find entertaining and engaging, but it isn't going to show spots on the moon or anything
  • Will frustrate your child with the blurred vision/ not adjustable
