Price is tempting, but reviews are disappointing.

For £34.99 it is a good way to introduce your children to science and if they show interest you can always buy more expensive stuff later and if they are not interested maybe denote it to the charity shop.

Cheap but probably see the stars better with a milk bottle.

Actually not. Disappointing a child with a poor first experience will ensure subsequent lack of interest. Those aren't even actual binoculars, but an inferior type of optical system called field glasses.

Yes there is a risk of that but equally they could then ask for something much better. This is probably suitable for years 3 to 6 and many primary schools will not have these. At this price it is probably not more than a typical video game. I would rather they spend time on this than a video game.

Patrick Moore always recommended binoculars as an introduction to astronomy, and inveighed against small, cheap telescopes. He even wrote a book, Binocular Astronomy. Decent binoculars are quite affordable these days.

You are probably correct, but this kit can potentially teach the concept of space, size, distance, magnification, light, microbiology etc, concepts which are very difficult to explain to kids.
Spend that money either on binoculars or microscope. A decent telescope is 3x as much.
