A Classic

Give a child a classic, constructive and creative toy with this complete replica of the original 1951 Colorforms set. A perennial favorite, the original Colorforms set has versatile shapes that can be formed into a limitless number of colorful pictures and designs. The plastic-based Colorform shapes easily attach to any glossy surface, allowing hours of imaginative games, puzzles and activities. And two surfaces are already included, too. Imported. Made in the USA and assembled in China.

As featured on The Today Show.

UNCOMMON KNOWLEDGE: Colorforms began when two art students were experimenting with a new flexible vinyl material and discovered how the vinyl stuck to the glossy paint in their bathroom, and how much fun they had playing with the shapes they had cut out. It was first launched in New York City and was considered for the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA).

Bought this for my nephew because my brother and I LOVED Colorforms when we were little. My nephew (and brother) loved receiving them - and play with them all the time!

Sharing a favorite

I loved colorforms as a child, and wanted to share this fun with my neice. She is 4 (given to her right before her 5th birthday) and is very creative, so I knew she would love this. She loves that she can creat something and leave it there for as long as she wants, or immediately demolish her creation and start over. Another great product from Uncommon Goods!!!

Awesome Toy!!

I bought this toy to engage my 2 1/2 yr old son's creative side. When the box came, he immediately loved it and created his 1st "colorform" artwork. He loves the colors and shapes. I love the simplicity of the "old school" toys. The pieces stick well (almost too well when then are piled upon on another) to the boards and the shapes have survived my son's repeated use.

A Classic

5

Colorforms is a classic creativity toy which allows for repeated use and demands active imagining by the user. The bright colors, and free form design hearken back to a "pre-video game" age, when children were encouraged to create their own visual images. This set is durable, self contained, and affords the variety/scale needed for multiple users at a sitting. Get this for a child, and encourage an imagination.
