Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WeekendWarrior Poor product/ brittle plastic, seams not closed/sealed
The side seams were not sealed, and looks like it will not hold up for more than a few uses. The pictures make it appear to be a higher quality finish, but this feels like a dollar store item, not worth ordering. Save your money. Additionally, it comes with two mounting sets (one to mount on top of a wide piece of wood, and the other to straddle the thin top of a 2x4. The straddle mount was not properly cut out, so it did not fit the way it is supposed to. Not sure if the manufacturers molds are just so old that the overages of production over a period of time have caused the defects to appear. Was really excited for this to be good, and now very disappointed with how poor quality it is. :(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kim Great addition to my grandkids outdoor play center
I bought this for the wooden swing set to be attached on the deck of the cabin. I had no problem attaching the telescope myself and my granddaughter loves it !

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rebecca72 Doesn't magnify at all - it's a plastic tube!
So I ordered this for a birthday part and didn't think to try it out until the day before. I held it up and ..... It does nothing at all. I could have just oven him a paper towel roll and had the same quality of function. It's great that you can mount it but why mount a plastic tube to anything?! What a waste and disappointment for the little rice year old boy that just wanted to watch the birds.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lavaflow needs 2x4 board on playground to add
This looked like a fun addition to the playground for hours of fun for the kids. However when i received it there were no instructions on how to add it. It turns out that in order to add it to the play ground you need a 2x4 at a reasonable level for the kids to be able to use the telescope. We haven't yet been able to add it to the playground because ours is all 1x4 construction with no board at a good height for toddlers to use the telescope.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SWB1 Fun Detail For Any Playset
Rugged design. It looks like it could stand up to years of play. Came with mounting hardware to install and swivel mounting for either a 4" X 4" or a 2" X 4". The telescope had recessed lenses to add to its realism. They were not, however, magnifying lenses. It was easy to install, requiring only a screw driver.

The scope is constructed well and comes with two styles of mounting bracket. One for a beam and one for a flat surface. The only downside I see is there is no magnification. It is just a plain sight through a tube.
