    Endless hours of entertainment
    Posted 7/31/2014 by Stefanie Graber

    Great concept. My oldest (12) loves trying to replicate all the images that come with the package. My two youngest (5 and 6) try and create their own designs. They bring these with on our road trips and out to restaurants. They absolutely love creating things and challenging themselves with trying to replicate the "puzzles" that come with it.

    Creative toy

    We bought three of these for our grand kids. They turned out to be a big hit. Very creative, colorful, mind challenging toy that kept them busily thinking for hours.

    I purchased the Kaleidograph Crystal. There are three additional versions, Flora, OpArt and Contrast. I first saw it on a TV show that promoted it's use as a substitute for video games. As an educator specializing in behavior I am continually looking for items that are both engaging and calming. Kaleidograph is both. Students appreciate that they can make their own designs. If they are unsure as to what design they would like to try there is a sheet included that provides picture suggestions. Kaliedograph can have the same effect as watching fish in an aquarium or snow fall. It's fun and soothing at the same time. It's a good resource that I plan to use for a long time.

    Kaleidograph (we have flora and crystal) is simple yet mesmerizing. Our entire family likes making new designs and putting it back in the frame like box to display. It is a soothing activity.
