#Giveaway Holiday Guide: Science Fun with My First Lab

When it comes to the holidays and finding those perfect gifts to give everyone on our lists, I like to take into consideration everyone’s interests and likes. I also take into consideration what might come in handy for day to day life as well. And with that in mind, when I think of items that homeschoolers like Heather and her family might appreciate getting as gifts over the holiday season, I think of the items that the kids can enjoy as they study. So when we were sent the Duo Scope Starter Kit and Smartphone Inspector from My First Lab to review, I knew that Heather and her kids would enjoy checking out this set and also enjoy sharing their thoughts as they use it during their lessons.

My daughter Megan loves science and all the things she can explore. As soon as she saw this microscope, she was jumping up and down with excitement! This just takes a matter of minutes to set up and includes 3 slides already made, which allowed her to start inspecting the frogs blood as soon as it was set up. We also found wool and onion sprout on the other 2 prepared slides. Along with the ready to view slides there is some brine shrimp eggs that you can hatch and then put them on a blank slide to inspect. She has been looking at anything and everything she can while we do our science lessons, and if it were up to her she would rather experiment with this than do her homework because she is simply fascinated. This is a 40 piece set that includes:

  • * 1 Brine Shrimp Eggs Specimen Vial
  • * 1 Yeast Specimen Vial
  • * 3 Empty Specimen Vials
  • * Graduated Cylinder
  • * 8 Blank Slides
  • * Hatchery
  • * Specimen Slicer
  • * 3 Prepared Slides
  • * 8 Slide Labels & 8 Cover Slips
  • * Plastic Transfer Pipet
  • * Magnifying Glass
  • * Plastic Forceps
  • * Experiment Guide

Along with the microscope we also received the Smartphone Inspector. I have played with this myself and it is amazing the things you can see like your fingerprints! This one can be used on a phone or tablet. It has a black light so you can see hidden images on currency. There is also a regular light as well to help see the specimens that you are looking at. These are great items for that curious kiddo in your life that likes to experiment or is fascinated by the science world and has been really fun to add to our science class. I know this will get used all the time in my house and the Little’s will love it when they get older. And to help with bringing some of that Science fun home for your kids to enjoy, the wonderful people from My First Lab would like to give one of our amazing readers their at home science products from the My First Lab line up! 


Product received, thank you to My First Lab as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
