My first children's binoculars: Swarovski Optik presents the MY Junior, specially designed for young nature observers

The MY Junior binocukars from  Swarovski Optik are available in two colors, glacier blue as shown here or jungle green. They weigh just 480 grams and have 7x magnification with an objective lens diameter of 28 mm.
First "get a feel for the situation" without binoculars, then zoom in closer with the new MY Junior from Swarovski Optik, here in the jungle green version.

Who doesn't fondly remember the first time in their youth when they were allowed to look through their father's large binoculars on a hike with their parents? They were heavy, so he took the precaution of holding on to them, but the clear view and, above all, an almost perspective visual field with both eyes only opened up this fascinating world for a few seconds at a time, then it wobbled too much again. Getting closer to nature with binoculars, or observing animals from a distance that doesn't startle them: all this only works if the binoculars are designed with children or young people in mind. Children should be able to learn how to use this fantastic optical device at an early age and without fear. The new MY Junior children's binoculars from Swarovski Optik are just right for this, as they are designed with the special features of an optical device for children's hands in mind. You can expect the well-known high manufacturing quality of the Tyrolean company, the MY Junior is certainly not a toy. Just in time for the start of summer, it is now available from selected specialist retailers or online.

Why special binoculars for children? What is different about them to the full-grown "adult models"? We asked the manufacturer directly. “Since our company was founded in 1949, love of nature and our customers’ wishes have been important sources of inspiration for innovative new products. With our first high-quality children’s binoculars, we now want to inspire young people to discover nature. Our aim is also to help heighten the next generation’s awareness of the need to protect the beauty of our natural world. We are proud that we have once again succeeded in launching binoculars which currently have no comparable rivals on the market,” says Stefan Schwarz, CEO of Swarovski Optik, about the new MY Junior.

The MY Junior children's binoculars from Swarovski Optik from the eyepiece side: the eyepieces, which are also suitable for spectacle wearers (field of view with and without glasses 7.2 degrees each), can be easily adjusted.

When developing the MY Juniors, particular consideration was paid to the needs of 6 to 14-year-old users. The colorful design, easy operation with a large field of view (126 metres at 1,000 metres) and child-friendly instructions, in which an illustrated hawk plays the leading role, make the binoculars particularly user-friendly.

With the MY Junior, children can see subjects seven times closer than with the naked eye, and the shortest viewing distance is four metres. The 28-mm objective lens captures enough light to observe well into the evening hours. Weighing of just 480 g, the MY Junior binoculars are particularly light. The scope of delivery also includes a practical bag that not only holds the binoculars themselves, but also the Nature Notes: young adventurers can record their discoveries in this special notebook.

Cool accessories are also provided, as today's kids are of course already well equipped with technology. If you want to capture your observations as pictures and videos with your smartphone, you can combine the MY Junior with the practical VPA 2 Variable Phone Adapter from Swarovski Optik. In addition to the MY Junior, the long-range optics manufacturer has also recently started offering T-shirts and caps for children in a matching design.

The MY Junior from Swarovski Optik binoculars cost 480 euros each in the two available colors glacier blue and jungle green as a recommended retail price. Further information is available on the detailed website.
