Kaleidoscopes to You Review
Look at this beautiful kaleidoscope from Kaleidoscopes to You! Since February is our history month, I thought it would be a fantastic idea to feature Kaleidoscopes to You and share the history of kaleidoscopes- which can also be found on their website!
Kaleidoscopes were invented in 1816 by David Brewster. While looking at some objects at the end of 2 mirrors he noticed patterns and colors were recreated and reformed into beautiful new arrangements. He named this new invention after the Greek words kalos (“beautiful”), eodos, (“shape”) and scopeo (“to look at”). Beautiful Shape Watcher.
Kaleidoscopes became very popular during the Victorian age as a parlor diversion. Look at the beautiful handiwork on the wood below! The artistic design is so appealing!
In 1980 kaleidoscopes began to be seen as an art form. Kaleidoscopes To You has specialized in kaleidoscopes since 1982 and over time has become one of the larger retailers of kaleidoscopes today.
Look at these beautiful images that I was able to take with my camera through the kaleidoscope I have pictured above.
Isn’t that amazing? What I love about kaleidoscopes is that they are so simple, and so unique, yet kids love them! It can be as simple as a toy for a child, a beautiful desk ornament, or an in-depth science lesson!
and even as jewelry!
We loved the kaleidoscope that we were sent to review. It was the beautiful wooden kaleidoscope that you saw in the first pictures. If you are looking for a kaleidscope for any occasion I recommend checking out Kaleidoscopes to You. They have kaleidoscopes from under $2 to over $2000!
