Different item to advertised

Dissappointed child as this item was a replacement and not the one advertised on line, on instore system or in the catalogue, just getting rid of old stock that is inadequate for the purpose

pick up service

This is an excellent product but the pick up process was unnecessarily complex. There was an order number on the first page which I thought was indeed the number for my order. When it did not work the cashier showed me the correct number on the second page. The order number relevant to the order should be prominent on page 1

Not the correct item as pictured

Paid for it and returned there and then. Picture is wrong. It was not the item I paid for turned out to be completely different & very toy like. Staff tried to say its just a different box to which I pointed out that it was not! the microscope itself is different too! and showed them both the picture of the one I ordered on my phone. Please correct mistake.

Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into your query and I can advise that you look through the top of the microscope to see the object.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.


Hi, Sadie.

The body of the Discovery Channel Microscope is blue plastic.

I hope this helps.
