The GeoSafari Jr. Kidnoculars are sturdy, colorful binoculars made specifically for young children. They are focus-free so children don't have to fiddle with a little knob to be able to see clearly , and they have "perfect-fit goggles" to help the children know where to place them on their face. They are just the right size for young children, the eye pieces being just the right size and distance apart. All of my children enjoyed using them around the house, in the yard, on walks and . . . at the football game.
I was afraid they weren't going to let them in due to all the new NFL regulations, but no one said a word about them. I was thrilled to be able to take them in with us, as were the children.
Even Harold was curious and wanted a chance.
Unlike children's play binoculars these have a decent amount of magnification power to them, 2x magnification to be specific. I have to confess, I actually used them myself during the game and I was able to see what was going on down on the field pretty well. Which is saying something because we are on the second level. I also love that the rubbery ends help to protect them when they fall, which happens a lot with young children.
While Amelia and I enjoy looking for birds and other critters, Tabitha enjoys looking at the sky and the clouds when we go on walks.
One other feature I would like to mention is the breakaway neck strap closure.
This is a safety feature to prevent strangulation as it will come undone if the child gets it caught on something. While I think this is a great feature I have noticed that it comes undone way too easily. If the girls decide to run with them on, they tend to fall off their neck if they are not holding on to them. I have also noticed that they are a bit heavy on the neck unless you are holding onto them constantly. Those concerns aside, I really love this product, as do the children.
