    General Information

    Observation of the small

    Looking through a microscope (from the Greek micron = small and skopein = to look at) opens up new worlds and perspectives. We have the microscope to thank for the discovery of the smallest plant and animal species, a famous example being Petrophaga lorioti in 1976. Thanks to the identification of this shy rodent, which feeds on stones, countless buildings could be saved. According to the Pschyrembel, the stone louse can now also be used to treat gallstones and kidney stones. Since the cute little guy is hard to find, he probably won't make it under our microscope, but there are all kinds of other things - if they fit on the slide - to discover. The microscope consists of a holder and an optical (here biconvex) lens. Focusing can be done by placing the lens differently in the holder. If a transparent film is used instead of the paper slides, the object can be transilluminated from below through the hole in the base.

    Cheeky by profession. Toys from Naseweiss

    The wooden toys from the Württemberg-based manufacturer Naseweiss combine the joy of play with the opportunity to learn about principles from nature, technology and culture - from the physical principle of the pulsar motor to a simple magnifying glass or a light microscope to a sundial. They invite intensive engagement with nature and the environment, while at the same time leaving room for the children's own ideas and discoveries and encouraging creative play.

    Exploring nature indoors and outdoors

    Whereas in Goethe's day laymen - sometimes armed with binoculars, butterfly nets and botanizing drums - roamed the woods and meadows to explore flora and fauna, nowadays you're more likely to find geocaching enthusiasts equipped with GPS devices. To feed the spirit of exploration and discovery early on, we offer the right utensils for nature enthusiasts. Small and robust, they are ideally suited to be taken outside and immediately satisfy the curiosity of young amateur explorers.

    Caution:

    Not suitable for children under 3 years. Choking hazard due to small parts that may be swallowed.
