Customer Reviews

Big disappointment, again !We bought this for our young grandchildren who live 300 miles away. Had it shipped to us so we could be their when we gave it to them . Broke first time used, just like other customers described. Center shifted blocked view. Junk, I'm really getting tired of this great Amazon junk mill on certain items. Something's are great but alot of "dollar" junk being sold with.... indifference? 1Just like old time onesI bought this for my grandchildren, but really in homage to the memory of one I had as a kid half a century ago, but really not expecting it would be the same or provoke the same reaction with a modern child that it did for me, a child of the 1950s. I was pleasantly surprised that this is the real thing, painted tin and all, just like the old time ones, and It fascinates modern kids as much as it did way back when. It's a well-executed, nice toy. 5ImpressedThis kaleidoscope is prettier and built better than the ones I had as a child 50 years ago. If my 3-year old grandson isn't impressed with it, I bet his parents will be. 5This is the one!I was really,really pleased with this kaleidoscope. The two main reasons I bought it were a review that said the particles were like jewels,and the fact that it has a metal tube. I've tried before to find a good one, but they were all cardboard with dull metal foil refectors and blah opaque plastic particles. This is exactly like the 'real' ones I had as a child 50 years ago. I like to see the light coming through the transparent colored pieces,it makes for much richer visuals. This one uses colorful beads,and the originals used shards of colorful glass,but the results are the same as the originals. Maybe even better,since these shapes are more defined and varied. 5Bright and funI am teaching a unit on kaleidoscopes to my gifted students. This is what I remember from childhood and exactly what I wanted. The colors are vivid and the kaleidoscope itself is study. One note of caution: Mine was only packed in a thinly padded envelope and arrived with a small dent. If you order, you might consider requesting that it be boxed instead. 5... bought this for my own birthday and am so disappointed in it for two reasonsI bought this for my own birthday and am so disappointed in it for two reasons. One, it arrived loose in a box with other items and was broken (one of the interior mirrors is loose within it and flops around. If you get the mirror flipped into place and if hold it like that, you can get the kaleidoscopic effect for a short time). Two, the beads inside are juvenile. I know, I know, this is a juvenile toy, but they are super cheap and instead of getting a kaleidoscope of color, you get more of a teleidoscopic view of plastic beads.So, for quality it gets a 1 star. For content it gets 3 stars. I'm going to keep looking for something that satisfies my kaleidoscopic needs. 2Well made. Exciting. Vintage appeal. Metal. For adults and children alike.Great old-time vintage style kaleidoscope. Quality made. Reminds me of my childhood. Is meant to be a toy, but if you are into nostalgia, this is a great item to display on a book shelf or table. Nice graphics. Nice kaleidoscope colors and patterns. 5So happy I bought this Kaleidoscope!I saw this kaleidoscope and was immediately lost in thought of my Christmases as a child back in the 50's and 60's! I bought each of my twin 4 yr old Grandchildren these and I was hoping this could come even close to the ones I used to get from Santa. When the package arrived and I opened it up I wished I had bought one for myself! First off, it's made of metal. It's easy to turn and the shapes and colors are absolutely beautiful! When we exchanged gifts and the kids opened up the kaleidoscope, of course they had no idea what it was. They were shown how to use it and they were in awe. Very happy customer... and happy Grandchildren. I'll be back to buy one for myself. 2 yrs later both have stood up really well. My daughter told me the kids use them a lot! 5Nice... But...A Bit Disappointed...Item arrived in good condition and I was so excited for it. I had awesome kaleidoscopes as a child, so I was hopeful. But I ended up being a bit disappointed. It was only okay, nothing great. Based on the high reviews, I expected more. I think mine had too few beads in it maybe. There was so much dead space while viewing it, I felt very underwhelmed. I might try and open it up and add more beads, or change them out or something. I would definitely recommend it for a little kid without a doubt. But just don't have super big expectations for beautiful results. 3Be wary when ordering more than one - they just throw them in a box, with nothing else.It would have gotten four stars, but the two I purchased were packaged carelessly and damaged each other in transit. One ended up badly dented (pictured below) and the other looks alright, but the glue between the rotating cylinder and the bead container has been broken. I suppose I can fix the latter, but the other is a loss as the dented portion crimps when pressed on, producing sharp edged unsuitable for a 3 year old.It would be a nice product if they didn't treat them like crap when sending them to you. Rolling each in a piece of old newspaper would have prevented the dilemma of whether to seriously go through the trouble of shipping it back or simply not bothering getting another one.Update: After contacting Amazon about the issue they sent me two replacements, free of charge. These came well packaged and in good condition. The Kaleidoscopes are decent given the price, but could use a more varied bead selection. I'm sure my nephews will love them. 4
