My oldest has a love for science and it’s a passion that I love to encourage. She’s fascinated in learning all sorts of new things. Some nights we sit together in her room and look at the stars and the moon.
Nancy B’s has a full line of great science toys for kids and to take our stargazing a step further we tested out Nancy B’s Science Club MoonScope and Sky Gazer’s Activity Journal.
What it comes with:
- A telescope that gives a clear view of the nighttime sky
- Includes moon filter, two eyepieces (to provide 18x and 90x magnification) and a built-in, pre-aligned finder scope with glow-in-the-dark ring to make it easy to use
- 22-Page Sky Gazers Journal includes stories about the moon plus fun observation activities
- Lightweight and easy to assemble
- LED light preserves night vision, and requires AA batteries (not included)
This telescope is perfect for beginners. My 5 year old has no troubles using it and putting it together on her own. It has a nice stand that the telescope screws onto and it’s ready to start gazing at the stars.
We quickly tested it on a nice clear night. My daughter was in awe seeing the stars and moon up close and it was very simple for us to switch out the included eye pieces and moon filter. It has a glow-in-the-dark ring that makes it easy to see in the dark.
It’s super light and easy to move around to optimal viewing spots. The activity journal has lots of neat activities and information about the moon, we really enjoy going through it together.
This telescope is perfect for little stargazers and moon watchers like my Pinky. It’s simple for them to setup and using it is easy and fun. It is recommended for ages 8 and up but my 5 year old uses it with ease and when I’m not in the room with her we put it away so it doesn’t get damaged. I also love this toy because it is a STEM learning toy, she’s not only having fun she’s learning!
