The LeapFrog Magic Adventures Microscope offers children aged 5+ the chance to make new discoveries, enjoy tiny worlds, and explore the microscopic environment around them.
Officially launched by TV presenter and nature lover Naomi Wilkinson at The Science Museum, London, mini scientists and budding explorers were encouraged to discover miniature worlds and learn about the human body, minerals, flowers, food and animals through the lens of the Magic Adventures Microscope.
The real, working microscope, with its 2.4″ LCD viewing screen, is brought to life with stunning BBC content on nine double-sided Smart Slides. These are written by science educators, featuring 18 categories, games and audio that are educational and fun.
These tiny worlds offer huge discoveries in an immersive and educational way that’s fun for the whole family. Children can also explore and prepare their own samples with its 50x-200x magnification, using the included blank slides and tray. Young biologists can zoom in on flowers, animals, food, minerals and more using the nine double-sided smart slides that activate over 240 amazing BBC videos and images. They are able to save 100 pictures of their own discoveries, play four action packed adventure games to feed and heal microorganisms and defend them from micro-invaders across 24 exciting levels, and take on a knowledge test with the What’s This? quiz game.
