My students love these. We talked about bug eyes being different, and they like seeing how things would look from a bug's eye view.

Although inexpensive, not worth the money!
I bought these as an end of year gift for my preschoolers. I had a lot of students and wanted to keep the cost down. The prisms looked like they would be a fun, inexpensive gift. But I was embarrassed to give them to my students: some of the prisms were blurry and not actually prisms, some were scratched, and a few had fallen apart before I even opened the box. I'm never going to buy these for my classes again!

Just piece of junk
It is just trash. Don't buy it! When you look through these "prisms", the picture is just blurred, and the multiplying effect is very very poor and almost indistinct. It is a shame to call this trash "a prism" and, moreover, to give such an awful product to kids.
I used to buy real toy prisms with kaleidoscope effect from Discovery Channel stores some years ago, and when I was giving them to kids, the prisms were making real cool magic effect on them: bright and vivid multiplied pictures covering the whole area in front of an eye. The "prisms" here are not even an imitation of a true prism. You better just throw the money you are going to spend on this to the trash can.

Not good quality in my opinion
I had a prism scope toy, cheap plastic but the lens lets you see a huge number of same scenes. The ones I bought here have very cheap lenses, hard to see through and very poor prism effect so that you can barely recognize the thing you are looking at let alone enjoy many copies of it in your eyepiece.

50 views of clarity
Perfectly clear view/s of the subject. We used them to illustrate the way everyone chooses to look at a different item and each has different views of it. We are each unique!

The kids loved these!
We ordered these to support our current Sunday school curriculum. The children had a wonderful time using them and couldn't wait until the next activity to use them in a new way.

When I looked at this package when it arrived, you could tell they looked cheap. There was white (dried) glue around the rim where the lens is to go; one of the lenses fell out before I could even get it out of the package. I took some clear glue I had at home and fixed the latter one, and the other ones - I just figure the kids didn't mind seing the white stuff around the rim.

Although these are basically cheap plastic, they are colorful and the kids seemed to like them.

descent for the price
A few of these came apart. They are not made as well as I hoped but are descent for the price.

Decent Quality for the Price
Like some other reviewers, a couple of these had glue that distorted the image a little bit. I had no problems with any lenses falling out though. The quality was not perfect, but was decent. They were beautiful though. The colors were very nice and they were a pretty little trinket to put in my daughter's favor bags. A good addition to our party. I would recommend them, but maybe buy a few extra if some are not usable.
