    I'm looking to buy about 20 to 25 little hand lenses (magnifiers). I see that Kaplan has a set of 12 for $12.95. Is there anywhere I can find them cheaper?

    I bought some from Oriental trading last year. The kids loved them. The handles break off easily when dropped. I ordered extra to have spares & will try superglue for repairs.

    These look better as the handles don't look like they will break off as easily:

    I bought some large plastic magnifying glasses at Dollar Tree for my science center.

    Good luck.
