Kids love to explore and discover the world around them, and nothing helps to bring the world closer than binoculars. While many binoculars might be too large and heavy for kids to easily use, the SkyGenius 8x21 Compact Kids Binoculars have been designed specifically with younger children in mind. From their ergonomic and lightweight design to the 8x magnification and quality optics, kids will love the detailed, close-up, and colorful views, while parents will love the great value for money these easy-to-use binoculars provide. Whether it’s birds, planes, dolphins, or even the moon and stars, the SkyGenius 8x21 Compact Kids Binoculars can bring everything in your child’s world into focus.
The SkyGenius 8x21 Compact Kids Binoculars have a magnification of 8x, giving your child the ability to study any distant object up-close, with birds, buildings, animals, and even the moon seemingly close enough to touch!
Just like larger binoculars for adults, the 8x21 Compact Kids Binoculars include a diopter adjustment on the right eyepiece, allowing you to fine-tune the focus and compensate for the differences in acuity between the observer’s eyes.
With the best quality BK-7 prisms and multi-coated lenses, you’ll get sharp, detailed, colorful views that are sure to spark the imagination of any curious child. From nearby birds to the far distant stars, children will love the sights the binoculars can produce for them.
No matter who you are or how old you are, we’re all susceptible to dropping or knocking something fragile from time to time. Fortunately, the 8x21 compact kids binoculars have a thick, rubber armor that’s designed to absorb the shock of any impact, protect the optics within and prevent damage to the binoculars as a whole.
Weighing just 177 grams (6.2 ounces), these binoculars won’t weigh anyone down! They’re light enough to be taken on hikes, carried in a bag, simply worn around the neck, or held for long periods of time without the fatigue that comes with larger, heavier binoculars.
Once the diopter adjustment has been made (a one-time adjustment) you only need to adjust the focus via the central focuser wheel. Both children and adults will find the wheel turns smoothly, allowing for fine adjustments to bring the view into sharp focus.
Are they good for bird watching?
Absolutely! With the 8x magnification, multi-coated optics, and lightweight design, SkyGenius 8x21 children binoculars allow kids to see any bird up-close and in vibrant color. And it’s not just birds either; kids can also enjoy great views of local wildlife, sea life, sports, concerts, airplanes, and the landscape without the need to get any closer to their target.
Can they be used for stargazing?
If you know a child who’s fascinated with the stars, the 8x21 compact kids binoculars will allow them to explore the universe from their own backyard. Besides being able to show the moon in amazing detail, these binoculars can also show larger and brighter star clusters (such as the Pleiades and Hyades) and are great for simply scanning the night sky above them!
What's the age range for the binoculars?
One of the best things about binoculars is their ease of use, making it possible for almost anyone of any age to use them. It doesn’t matter if you’re 4 or 94, there are binoculars that are suited for your age group. While the 8x21 compact kids binoculars are designed for younger kids in mind (up to approximately age 12), they’re not toys, but fully-functional binoculars that older children can use and enjoy too.
What to look for when buying binoculars for kids?
There are a number of features to be aware of when choosing binoculars for kids. For example, they should be light enough and compact enough for the child to easily hold in their hands. Magnification is another factor, as having a magnification that’s too high (over 10x) can be disorienting for children as it will show a smaller field of view and make it harder for children to find their target. You’ll also want to take into account the material they’re constructed from, as a good, solid rubber exterior armor can help protect the binoculars from any accidental drops and knocks. Lastly, if your child wears glasses, consider the eye relief of the binoculars. The longer the eye relief, the further the binoculars can be from your eyes and still see the entire field of view.
