Crystalline geometries in brilliant color ... this deceptively simple Kaleidograph® set (9 die-cut cards and 3 solid cards) can be arranged into billions of designs. Based upon geometry in nature, the Kaleidograph upholds the tradition of the original creative design toys of the Froebel Kindergarten system that are known to have influenced Albert Einstein, Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, Piet Mondrian, and design education at the Bauhaus.
Like the natural crystals of rubies and sapphires, the Kaleidograph is based on interconnected hexagonal forms. Richly personal and environmentally friendly, the Kaleidograph is a toy for all ages. It fosters creativity, rewards with surprise, and brings out the designer in everyone. One of Dr. Toy's 2012 10 Best Creative Products and awarded the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Seal.
