PACKAGING AND FIRST IMPRESSIONS
And just as I mentioned earlier, the packaging was of top notch quality as usual. It came in a sturdy brown box and when opened, it was filled up of square foams to cushion the product.
WHAT AND WHO IS EDUCATIONAL INSIGHTS
Based in Southern California, Educational Insights, is the maker of playful products packed with serious educational value!
This nifty little product was packaged attractively with just a cardboard surrounded it.
This is the 360 degree view (erm, minus the bottom) of the Kidnoculars packaging, filled with attractive details such as features and facts!
Front and back views, side views and also top view.
And the most interesteing of all, is this little fact that says 'For kids' eyes only! Adults, your eyes may be too far apart for these binoculars!'
Once I removed the packaging, this is what we got.
I love that it is just a one-piece thing, which you don't need to assemble.
And it is made of sturdy yet soft rubber, which means it that it won't matter if your kids drop it on the floor. (or like mine, they do fling it around sometimes!)
And it actually fits into the faces of both my toddler and my pre-schooler!
And so the claim is true that these are the only binoculars that is designed especially for little kids!
And I also love the fact that it is focus-free, which means that your kids don't need to focus it manually or anything every time they want to view something. This feature is super kid-friendly, and I should say parent-friendly too, because if it is not, my kids are going to bother me to focus it for them all the time!
And it has 2x magnification, means it enlarges twice the size which is decent amount enough for little eyes.
And another thing they have is this breakaway neckstrap, which is a good safety feature so that little ones will not get tangled and unable to get off around their necks. It gives me a peace of mind when little Khye or even Shern wears it around their necks.
Shern had a try on it first.
See how it fits his face so well.
And Shern had a good time looking at Christmas Tree ornaments using the binoculars.
Haha, Shern was being cheeky here, but look at how stable these binoculars is. It stays on his face even without holding.
And even though the packaging says it is for kids 3+ and above, Khye being 2 yrs+ had no problem using it too because it is so kid-friendly.
And also that the eyepiece also fits his face so well, just like perfect little goggles.
Khye got a kick looking through the binoculars at the television, where his favourite cartoon characters magnify to twice its size! lol!
And then my kids love to take them outdoors too, in our case our backyard.
They love exploring nature with them and we learn lots of things together, and best of all it makes learning fun!
But I must say that there is a little downside to this great product.
It is that this pair of binoculars is a little bulky and heavy to be hung around little kids necks for a long period of time.
So what I do is I carry it for them to the parks when we walk to the park, and pass it to them when they need it, as opposed to them carrying it around their necks the whole time.
And also it doesn't matter if we just bring it to the nearby park. But if you ask me to bring it to everywhere, it may not be so wise because it is heavy and does add a lot of bulk to my luggage.
But other than that, I would say this is a fabulous product, and is great for little kids!
I would recommend at least one in every home, or maybe even more than one if you can afford it, because seeing things together is twice the fun!
