Insect magnifying station, wonderful for curious and inquisitive aspiring zoologists! That said, the magnifying glass is also ideal for viewing leaves, flowers and more. Lift the top magnifying glass, carefully set the animal or flower in place, and replace the top. Now you can look at the object up close! The top magnifying glass provides 6x magnification and the side-mounted magnifying glass offers 4x magnification of the bottom of the object. Everything is more exciting up close. Store the product in its box when not in use and absolutely do not leave it out in the sun, because the magnifying glass poses a fire hazard.
