Review: Our Generation Under the Microscope Set

Review of Our Generation Under the Microscope Set

Today, I’m going to be reviewing Our Generation’s “Under the Microscope” Set.

Our Generation Under the Microscope Set

What it comes with:

  • One microscope
  • One test tube holder
  • Three test tubes
  •   One pair of safety glasses
  • One Erlenmeyer Flask

Our Generation Under the Microscope Set - safety glasses

The safety glasses are plastic. They’re a little hard to put on American Girl dolls — they’re designed for Our Generation dolls, after all. And I’m pretty sure OG dolls have thinner, more flexible heads. But once the glasses are on, they stay on quite well.

The test tubes are absolutely adorable, and are probably my favorite part of the set. They come in three different colors: yellow, purple, and pink. White marks are painted onto the plastic test tubes to show how much “liquid” is in each one.

They’re the perfect size!

The tubes can be stored in the white test tube holder. There are three circular dents in the bottom of the holder, which keeps the tubes from rolling around.

There’s also an Erlenmeyer Flask, which is larger than the other test tubes. It also has white measurment marks on it, but this one has numbers alongside it. A blue chunk of plastic is inside the flask to serve as liquid.

Lastly, the microscope.

It’s made out of purple plastic.

Flick a switch on the black platform and a focused points of light shines out of the microscope.

The silver knobs make the upper half of the microscope move up and down.

See those silver circles? There’s a tiny slide inside each one!

You can peer into the microscope and actually look at the slides.

Our Generation’s “Under the Microscope” Set would be perfect for a science-loving doll or a science lab in a doll school.
