The original Kindergarten system that influenced Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, Piet Mondrian, and Bauhaus masters Josef Albers and Paul Klee, was invented by Friedrich Froebel in 1836 as a means to teach children how nature designs. With simple blocks and paper toys based on the symmetries of crystals and flowers, kindergarten was intended to teach at the most fundamental level — pattern, rhythm, association, interconnectedness, unity.
The Kaleidograph, a fascinating and creative toy for children and design tool for adults, has been conceived in the tradition of the original Kindergarten. It is simple yet expansive, ever changing in its diversity, brilliant and beautiful, and mirrors nature's own strategies of creation.
The deceptively simple, die-cut cards of the Kaleidograph can be arranged in over 350 million designs. A toy for all ages, it fosters creativity, rewards with surprise, and brings out the designer in everyone.
