Children who get to see something amazing remember it much better than having only been told about it. If you're teaching your kids about the wonders of the outdoors, Swarovski Optik has just announced a boost to your NRA Family's "Show and Tell." It's called the MY Junior binocular, and Swarovski developed it specifically for kids. This low-weight 16.9 oz binocular is easy to use, easy to carry and (remarkably) easy to afford.

Available in two new color offerings of Glacier Blue and Jungle Green, the MY Junior lets kids view animals and other discoveries at 7x magnification. Young nature fans will also enjoy a 28mm objective lens for exceptional optical performance and an easy-to-use focusing wheel.

These durable binoculars were designed to connect your child to the joys of nature. Included is a Nature Notes notebook, so young researchers can record their observations and note tricky questions to research when they get home. Even better, the MY Junior is compatible with  Swarovski’s VPA 2 variable phone adapter for digiscoping and preserving the experience through photographs.

Swarovski has long had a reputation of one of the world's highest-end optics makers, with absolutely unparalleled glass ... and in general the price tag reflects that. These binoculars sport a remarkably low (for the brand) price tag of $499. Swarovski reports they'll be available starting May 2024; visit for more!
