Kaleidograph® is a toy, a game, a puzzle … an infinitely creative design tool for artists, quilters and others who enjoy making colorful patterns. The 12 deceptively simple cards make over 500 billion different combinations.
A toy for all ages, the Kaleidograph fosters creativity, rewards with surprise, and brings out the designer in everyone. Make your own intricate designs or try to duplicate the patterns on the enclosed poster. Compete with friends or family to see how long it takes to match designs.
The cards can be displayed as artwork, used as stencils in drawing patterns, and carried as a travel toy or portable amusement. The symmetrical patterns mirror the natural geometry of crystals and flowers. The Kaleidograph upholds the tradition of geometric design toys from the original Froebel Kindergarten system, which influenced Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, Piet Mondrian, and design education at the Bauhaus. Watch the Kaleidograph in action or play with it online.
Made in the USA from eco-friendly material, the Kaleidograph carries on a tradition of geometric pattern design toys dating back to the Age of Enlightenment. Recipient of an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Plantinum Award, the Kaleidograph was also one of Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Creative Products and Forbes.com Top 10 Toys That Kindle Creativity.
