what are GeoSafari Kidnoculars and their features?
The boys were very kindly gifted a pair of these Geosafari Jr Kidnoculars Extreme which are essentially binoculars with the added bonus of sound!! They’re focus free so they won’t get frustrated trying to adjust the focus every time they want to investigate something new, plus they also have a fantastic 3x magnification so they can explore over large distances. The kidnoculars also have built-in headphones. These amplify the surrounding sounds creating a more extreme experience plus a strap that features a breakaway connection for safety. Geosafari says that these binoculars “promote STEM-based scientific observation of nature, animals, and more!”

what did the boys think?
The boys thought these were amazing. It took a few minutes for them to associate the sounds they could hear with being what they could see. They also kept forgetting that the rest of us couldn’t see exactly what they could see at that moment! They loved secretly spying on the birds hiding in the trees, plus watching the bugs on the ground and discovering where they traveled to! Of course, being boys they also had to try and look up each other’s noses and mouths, so gross!
It was great that they had the option of turning off the sound. This meant they were able to focus purely on what they could see. Isaiah (6) has always enjoyed looking through binoculars but due to their heavy weight his arms tire quickly. These, however, are so lightweight he was able to use them for longer. If you have younger kids you know that they like to get their hands on and have a go at whatever their older siblings are up to! These were great for that as they are nice and tough and as mentioned, not too heavy to handle.
