    Default Cheapest Place for Magnifying Glasses for Kids

    I thought I'd ask the collective wisdom of you lovely ladies and gents.
    I'd like a couple of magnifying glasses for use in the garden (no not starting fires - I prefer wire wool and batteries for that ) but for looking at minibeasts in the garden.
    Sainsbury's had a tub with a magnifying glass to put bug into but didn't really want that sort of thing.
    Where did you all get yours from?

    TIA

    I got mine from poundland, 2 in a pack (a larger one and a slightly smaller one). They are not specifically for children but they are always supervised when using them anyway. I think you used to be able to get a big chunky one from ELC but not sure if they still do them?
