I received this for Christmas and am very impressed with the detail. I'm an antiques dealer so I've seen lots of these and this looks EXACTLY like a real one. Of course you can't move the slide to adjust the focus but you couldn't really look through it anyway because our eyes are too far apart. I'd give Samantha's stereoscope and view cards an A++.

American Girl says:
Samantha can look at photos of famous places such as the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty on the four photo cards included with this stereoscope. $12
Actually, Samantha probably had a case to store the stereoscope and the cards (I've seen collections that go to hundreds of views), but unfortunately American Girl did not think that far. Regardless, for $12 it is a high quality item, which is made of some type of metal (with a nice decorative detail), stained wood and soft fabric that would make view comfortable for the doll. Each card has a short summery of what the image shoes, where it is and photo credit. It would be nice if it was a little easier to store but it looks nice on a bed, desk or chair. It is also a lovely little detail to display with a doll.
A nice accessory and decorative piece, which I would give a B. If you get it when it is a monthly special or when it is finally moved to the sale page it gets up to an A.
