Hello, all. I'd like to buy a student microscope for a bright 10 year old, and am willing to spend up to $200.00 (though less would be better...) I'd like to get something of decent quality, tough, and not frustrating to use. Maybe even something I (actually, my husband since I am technology-challenged) could attach a camera to. Does anyone have a recommendation? Thank you kindly in advance.

I have an original IntelPlay, which I love,and paid $100 for. There is a new model QX5 out for $80 that has sample measurement tools built in. See:
