Fun nostalgic toy
I bought this for my grandchildren because I love for them to play with things I remember from my childhood. Such a simple toy in this age of all the electronic tablets, video games, and such, but my grandchildren loved it! I am so pleased.

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!
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

I would highly recommend this product
Bought as Chrismtas gifts for our grand nieces and nephew. Very well made and good for TRAVEL - take a long gift in the car to keep the wee ones busy!

The younger relatives have liked it, and the older ones remember the pleasure of having one in their youth. It is very entertaining to watch the new patterns being generated, and see how a few colored beads are projected as the multifaceted images.

Great product at an affordable price.
A very well constructed product. A nostalgic toy from my childhood that I was able to pass on to my grandchildren for their enjoyment.

Took Me Back 50 years.
Takes me back to being 5 years old, sitting on my swing, looking towards the sky through my kaleidoscope and marveling at the beautiful colors and shapes.

Wanted grandson to appreciate toys of the past. <br />Nowadays, kids do not even look around to see life--what's going on around them. They just stare at their phones and ipads all day long.

I loved this as a child, and think my great granddaughter will also.
Edith J on Sep 10, 2017
I have wanted a Kaleidoscope over the past few years because I remember them from my childhood. One I bought from another company turned out to be made of cardboard and was too small to satisfy my memory. I chose this particular Kaleidoscope because the description says it is made of TIN and it is 7" long. This one appears to be most like the one I remember ... nostalgia.
LESA P on Aug 29, 2017
I had one as a child, now I'm buying 2 for my grandchildren to enjoy!

Is the paint non-toxic?
beth m on Sep 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Although, I didn't read the Label,I would say, Yes, the paint is non- toxic. The Child's mother is an Advanced Registered Nurse who reads labels on EVERYTHING that comes into her home she told me all 3 of her children enjoyed the Kaliedascope
