The GeoSafari® Jr. My First Telescope is a fun way to show children more about the moon, stars, and different special sights that only happen once every so many years like the special sightings of the moon, asteroid showers, and other fun sights. They will also be able to learn more about different science events for home school or just in general. You can never tell what your child may want to do when they get older, they may grow up to want to go into astronomy.
The GeoSafari® Jr. My First Telescope is just adorable and the right size for little hands. It’s also focus free so that your child can just aim the telescope at what they would like to look at and look through the eye piece and see it. The telescope also offers 10X with wide field of vision, built-in diagonal mirror, and lens cap. It’s perfect for pre-school children and older. One of my favorite features is the two large eye pieces that are inside the googles so it makes it so easy for the kids to look inside and see. It is not like a regular telescope where older children or adults close one eye and then look into the eye piece to see the moon or whatever it is that they are looking at. They have really thought about a child using the telescope and how to make it easier for them to view objects.
My son’s have a telescope and so I was very excited to have one that my granddaughter’s could use and still feel like they were big like their uncles. The girls have always been a little jealous that the boys get to look through the telescope but they were to little to. So the My First Telescope is just the perfect size for them. They enjoy sitting at the table with their uncles and being able to look at the same things. It has really brought some great discussions between both the granddaughter’s and my son’s. It has also brought them closer together.
The boys love to teach the girls new things so this was the perfect way for them to do it with me. The girls love to look and see what they can see with their telescope, it’s not always the stars or moon. They seem to love to look at trees with the telescope as well looking for birds and squirrels during the day. They have just grown to love using their telescope. I’m lucky enough to get to experience all of their facial expressions, their excitement, their laughter, and see all the fun they are having showing each other new things through the telescope. They just love using the telescope and they argue about who is going to use it first, who is going to find the first thing that everyone should look at.
The GeoSafari® Jr. My First Telescope would make a great gift for a curious child who wants to learn about everything. A child who is curious about everything and how it works. It is really a great way to also learn new things about what your child or grandchild sees and looking at them through their eyes while having a great time!
