Helping Kids Discover, Learn and Grow

For nearly 20 years, we’ve brought a fresh and innovative approach to the educational toy market. Designed with children first, our award-winning My First Lab® products focus on the discovery and learning experience every step of the way. From microscopes and prepared slides to experiment kits and real animal skeletons, we put high-quality, affordable products into the hands of young scientists.

About Our Microscopes

  • Optics – Seeing is believing for children. That’s why we only use the finest optics for crystal clear images and up close viewing.
  • Light Sources – We design our scopes with battery-powered electrical lights instead of mirrors so you can focus in on every detail.
  • User-Guides – We give you the knowledge you need in clear, easy-to-follow descriptions and diagrams to help enhance the learning experience.
  • Best-Selling on Amazon – The one that started it all–the Duo-Scope Microscope for Kids–is now the bestselling children’s microscope on Amazon!
