Tin Kaleidoscope

Comments about Tin Kaleidoscope:

First of all there are no cons to this kaleidoscope. I've look for a long time for one that is this quality and appropriate for a 3 yr. old use. This is mesmerizing. It turns a boring day into content time. Car rides seem quieter. This type of toy even engages the imagination. It turned a kids viewing into Jake & the Neverland pirate playtime. Can't get better than that.

Keeping old school alive!

Comments about Tin Kaleidoscope:

When I saw this toy and it was made of metal, it took me back to my simpler time as a child. Sometimes all the bells and whistles of complex games and electronics should be replaced sometimes with the toys that spark imagination like this one. The grandkids love it!! I feel in some way I've done my part in keeping this kaleidoscope, which gave me such joy, a continued life of growth and creativity! Our kids and grandkids need these toys for those times of simple pleasure! Thanks Mike
