These plastic magnifying glasses were wrapped to prevent scratching. The plastic is quality, and the do magnify well enough for kids to play and explore.

Bought these for my son's birthday party & he didn't want the colored ones... little more money but these really work well! If there's any leftover I'm going to use one myself!

I received a magnifying glass on a beaded rope (a VBS
craft) from a grandchild. Everytime my younger grandchildren came to visit, they were fascinated with my
magnifying glass so I decided I would make one for each
grandchild (12 and under) for Easter. Now they can
check out things with their own magnifying glass. These
were perfect for my "gifts."

I ordered these as a thank you gift for coworkers and was pleased with the purchase. They arrived quickly and as described and the price was right. The magnifiers were individually wrapped and unscratched and I am very grateful for the dimensions being accurate as I used precut circles to accompany the glass area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MarronGrosbec No much use for optical demonstrations
Believe the reviews that say these magnifiers are "pretend" magnifying glasses. I like to show kids how to make a magnification 1x telescope using two identical converging lenses. The lenses are cylindrically symmetric but have strong radial variations in curvature from center to edge.. Only the center 20% of each lens has anything close to optically useful quality. I suspect that for an application like concentrating the sun's energy, they might work OK.
I had read the magnifiers were smaller then they appear, and indeed they are small. A good size for young hands, but small in an adult hand. Given their poor optical properties, I wouldn't recommend these for teaching purposes.

Not a super quality magnification, but very sturdy for the price and will be good for fun exploring, looking at nature, and pretending to be detectives.

These do not magnify uniformly. The center is different from the edge with a ring in between, giving objects a distorted and almost kaleidoscopic effect. I am highly disappointed and will not be using these in my classroom.

They are being used by adults in nutrition education classes to read the small print on the labels of food items. These are very helpful.
