The Kaleidoscope was first invented in the early 1800s as a scientific tool, but quickly became a popular optic toy, as well. Look through the tube, turn the bottom cylinder and watch the brightly coloured beads tumble in colourful, unique patterns. Clear optics and brilliantly bright colours contribute to its ongoing appeal, as does the timeless tin toy feel. Perfect for dreamy afternoons at the park or on the living room floor. Kaleidoscopes are one of our very favourite retro toys.
Goki is a German owned company that has over 130 years of experience in the toy industry. Primarily using wood for its toys, Goki finds the forests to be not only an important habitat, but an indispensable resource for humanity with what will hopefully be a lasting legacy. This is why each year, Goki plants a new tree for every child born in their northern state in Germany, or roughly 25,000 trees. With careful attention to details from the woods used to the paints and varnishes selected, Goki has maintained the extremely high standard of quality expected of traditional German toy manufacturers, even as they have grown and expanded their operations around the world.
