Young children's mental processes aren't fully developed, thus they can do very foolish things, especially if egged on by similarly reason-challenged peers. A glance at the Sun on a dare could easily lead to a lifetime of recriminations for all concerned.

I can understand the optics might not be as good as some telescopes, and definite magnification limitations, but otherwise a spotting scope with a zoom seems like a great way to get a young kid on the move started.
