Kaleidograph Contrast introduces black & white geometric printed patterns onto the same die-cut cards as the Crystal set, producing billions of intricate patterns. Combine with another award-winning Kaleidograph set (Crystal, Flora, OpArt) for even more design possibilities.
The deceptively simple, die-cut cards of the Kaleidograph can be arranged into billions of patterns that mirror the natural geometry of crystals and flowers. The Kaleidograph upholds the tradition of design toys from the original Froebel Kindergarten system, which influenced Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, Piet Mondrian, and design education at the Bauhaus. Watch the Kaleidograph in action or play with it online.
A toy for all ages, the Kaleidograph fosters creativity, rewards with surprise, and brings out the designer in everyone. The cards can be displayed as artwork, used as stencils in drawing patterns, or carried as a portable amusement. Made in the USA, the Kaleidograph carries on a tradition of geometric pattern design toys dating back to the Age of Enlightenment.
Made in the USA, for ages 5 to adult.
