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).

The sleeve provides storage and frame for display, and the enclosed poster provides hundreds of designs to inspire or challenge you to match. For ages 5+.
