      Comments about Tin Kaleidoscope:

      A unique toy that has stood the test of time (in my case, 60 yrs) for creative enjoyment and this one is metal - not plastic or cardboard. Appropriate for almost all ages of children because it requires only the ability to hold it, turn it, and view the results.

        Comments about Tin Kaleidoscope:

        Kaleidoscopes are very difficult to find nowdays. Even the large toy stores do not stock them. Such a simple toy to be enjoyed by any child should be readily available. Thank you Miles Kimball for making our granddaughters happy and able to enjoy an old fashioned kaleidoscope.

                      Our grand-kids are oriented to the computer, with it's games and all. They receive many trendy toys, from others. Our selections of 'old fashioned' toys are always a hit. These kaleidoscopes are so reasonably priced that we gave one to every child for whom we buy. They had never before seen them and found them quite intriguing.
