DIY Paper Binoculars
I buy these every year for Cub Scout Day Camp. They allow a coloring activity and a learning activity for the boys. Just enough magnification to keep their attention on the subject.
Don't ever discontinue this item.

Best All-Round Craft!
We ordered these for our 'little guys' at church, but when they came, they were sooooo GREAT, we had to order more for ALL age groups! We do VBS for kids ages 3 years old up to 6th grade, and EVERYBODY loved these. Simple. Fun. Versatile...AND they actually WORK!!!!! Wonderful craft! Keep up the good work! Thanks for great consistently products!

Kids love them
Kids from 4 to 11 enjoyed these. One kid even drew grass on the lenses so it looked like you were looking from the perspective of a grassland animal! The lenses really work and they are a very easy project (especially for the last day of VBS!)

I got these for my sons camping birthday party and all the kids loved them! I put out sharpies so they could decorate them. They were very easy to "pop-up" and actually worked!!

I purchased these for my little girl's birthday party. I believe the description said that they were to be decorated, which lead me to believe they would come with stickers or colors or something. They arrived plain white with nothing else. Other than that, they were fine.

This was a huge hit for my daughter's 6th birtday party. They had so much fun coloring & decorating with adhersive stickers. And everyone's came out looking different & great !! I really recommend this one.

Great activity, great toy
I bought these for my daugher's (7) mystery party. I bought stickers, markers and let kids decorate their own binoculars. I decorated 2 ahead of time with words and pictures to give them an idea of what could be done with them. I think the fact that the binoculars fold and actually magnify makes them a great goody bag gift. I wasn't intending for these to last a lifetime and bought them with that in mind, but I do feel they were very sturdy for cardboard and lasted through the whole party.

Really work, really neat
I have bought these twice. They really work. It's neat that they fold flat, then pop open. Kids enjoy coloring them and using them. We just used markers. If you make them too fancy you wouldn't be able to fold them Folding flat adds to their coolness. There is no assembly required.

I ordered these for my 5 year olds safari birthday party , after reading the other reviews and I have to say they were so great , we had 16 kids ranging in age from 2-11 and everyone just loved them , the decorated and used them all day . My only suggestion would be to add holes for strings , which made it easier for them to keep them , we used a hole punch and yarn . Will order again

The boy scouts had fun with these - they seemed to work.
The binoculars actually adjusted the view. The kids had fun turning them around to see things get smaller.
