Combine Contrast with one of our existing sets (Crystal, Flora, OpArt) to create a nearly infinite number of unique patterns, or try to match designs on the enclosed poster.


Explore crystalline geometries in brilliant color with Crystal. Based upon the interconnected hexagonal geometry found in nature, the 9 die-cut cards (and 3 solid color backer cards) can be arranged into billions of designs.


Explore the geometry of flowers with this colorful Kaleidograph® paper kaleidoscope. Both a toy and a design tool, the 9 die-cut cards (and 3 solid color backer cards) can be arranged into billions of designs. Like the floral forms found in nature, the Kaleidograph Flora is based on interconnected circular radial forms.


Explore mid-century modern art with the OpArt set. The designs are printed on the same die-cut cards as our Flora set, so you can combine OpArt with Flora or other sets to create an infinite number of unique patterns … or try to match designs on the enclosed poster.

How to Play

Award-Winning Toys of Creativity for All Ages

Made in the USA from eco-friendly material, the Kaleidograph carries on a tradition of geometric pattern design toys dating back to the Age of Enlightenment. Recipient of an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award, the Kaleidograph was also one of Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Creative Products and Forbes.com Top 10 Toys That Kindle Creativity.

Made in the USA

Kaleidograph upholds the tradition of creative design toys from the original Froebel Kindergarten system that are known to have influenced
Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, and design education at the Bauhaus.

A great travel toy, party bag item, or birthday gift, the Kaleidograph fosters creativity, rewards with surprise, and brings out the designer in everyone.

Made in the USA from sturdy, non-toxic paperboard, these sets are sized similar to a thick CD case (4.75in x 4.75in x .375in).
