Description: Celebrate a truly timeless toy with this 200th Anniversary kaleidoscope! First patented in 1817, the kaleidoscope has been enjoyed by young and old ever since. Just look through the eyepiece and turn the rotating cylinder at the other end. Endless patterns of gorgeous colors tumble and shift, and a clever arrangement of mirrors makes the image appear as a beautiful intricate mosaic. And because light shines through the colored chips in the tumbler, it looks like a dazzling light show, both random and perfectly ordered. No wonder this toy has been popular for 200 years! A fun, safe and fascinating toy for ages 3 and up, a kaleidoscope encourages a youngster's natural curiosity about light, mechanical devices, symmetry and about the world. The metal construction makes it strong and sturdy, but there are no sharp edges or corners. At 7" long by 2" diameter, it's a good size for small or large hands. Children and adults will also enjoy the charming cartoon animal scenes painted on the outside of this kaleidoscope. There are six different scenes, and one will be randomly chosen for each order. Order today, and perhaps this beautiful and sturdy toy will still be in your family for the 300th anniversary of the kaleidoscope!
