I bought this as a gift for a nephew, but before giving it to him, I took a peek of what is inside the box. I remember buying a kid's telescope for my own son at a popular toy store that costs $20. It was totally junk and rubbish, as the telescope's body is made up of paper! The lens are so blurry that you can't even see a thing. It is totally garbage and really disappointing!
With this telescope, I'm impressed that it is made up of plastic tools all over. The craftsmanship and design are brilliant and I'm so happy to learned that my 7 year old nephew loves it! It is a great starter telescope that didn't cost much and the quality is commendable. I can't comment on the usability and function of the toy Telescope but knowing that it made my nephew happy, I'm ok with it. I highly recommend it as an educational gift for a kid.
