    Comments about UncommonGoods Make Your Own Kaleidoscope Set:

    They give you a ton of confetti, but if the child uses more than a tiny bit, all the light is blocked and you can't see anything. I found it to work much better when the bottom part with the confetti is held away from the larger tube a little bit. Maybe if there was a clear tube in-between to let in more light, it would be much better ... Also, it was very pricey.

          I purchased this as a gift for my 5-year-old grandson. The happy phone call from my daughter after the two assembled the k-scope included the comments that it was interesting to assemble and add around-the-house elements to the tube to change the light. So much so, in fact, that they added to much and had to take some of it out and re-assemble. This, in turn, helped both appreciate the ease of assembly and how simple items can have unique effects.

          This was an amazing gift for my son. Fun for him and I. Would buy again. It gave him time to be silly when decorating the outside and was great for one on one time.

          My granddaughter has always been fascinated by an old tin kaleidoscope toy that was my husband's. When I saw this kit, I knew it would be a great activity for her and her artist dad to do together.

            The package was shipped very quickly. This is for my special needs nephew for Christmas. I wanted to get him something he could make himself and use, and something that would peel him away from his tv touchscreens for a while. I truly hope he'll enjoy this, he like to build and be creative.
