Q & As

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not fit for purpose Product bought for 8 year old. I am usually full of praise for John Lewis products - however, not in this case. The microscope cannot be focused correctly because the plastic wheel controlling the height of the lens is too loose. If you focus and then release your fingers from the focusing wheel, the item you are looking at goes out of focus. The microscope is very annoying to use and will have to be returned. 28 November 2014
