Want a closer look for your child? Are you heading out to commune with nature? Maybe you want to get a good look at the action without paying big bucks for the ringside seats at your favorite sporting event. Regardless of the reason, if you need a pair of binoculars without breaking the bank, look no further than Obuby Binoculars.
Made just for kids, these sturdy binoculars come in a wide range of bright colors and patterns. With over 13 to choose from, you’re sure to find the right pair for your little one. But make no mistake. These binoculars are not a toy. The soft eyepieces make them comfortable to use for longer periods of time. They weigh very little, which means your kids will carry them, instead of you lugging one more thing around for them. The long string can be looped to get the perfect fit for almost any kid. And these binoculars come with both a soft drawstring storage sack and a case that can be used even with the binoculars around their neck.
The one dial to focus makes it easy for little kids to adjust and see clearly, while the materials can survive multiple drops to the ground. We recently bought three pairs for our three kids, and they all loved them. We didn’t even need to see any sights, they spent so much time mesmerized by the novelty of seeing far off things closer (and seeing close things far away by using the binoculars backwards).
It never occurred to me to give them binoculars before, but had I known how fascinated they would find them, we would’ve purchased these much sooner. They pack up easily, and can fit in a jacket pocket in a pinch. You can even get several colors for less than $20. Meanwhile, my husband bought a pair of binoculars when he forgot to pack his, and would’ve preferred a pair of Obuby ones, too. They cost less, have more colors, and work much better than the standard ones that cost him more.
If you want a solid gift for your child, or simply a way to introduce them to a new way of exploring, you can’t go wrong with Obuby Binoculars.
