Yeah!!! Another Red Hen Toys Give-A-Way!









This is so cool! It's called a Kaleidograph and it's a lot of fun. This morning Henry and I sat down for some special time together and I brought it out for him to play with for the first time. Within seconds he was creating beautiful designs simply by stacking the beautifully colored cards on top of one another to make endless designs. Each side of the cards are colored differently which make it possible to make even more combinations. These simple, yet genius cards were designed based upon geometry in nature and these simple, yet complex designs are the very same that influenced Albert Einstein, Buckminster Fuller, Piet Mondrian and Frank Lloyd Wright! Very, very cool! While playing with these I was inspired myself and it made me think of all the amazing quilt designs you could come up with using the Kaleidograph. So, if you are a quilter, you might really love these!!! These kept Henry fascinated for quite a while and I have to admit I was enjoying playing with them as well.

I love educational toys and this one is great! I am a grandmother. Right now my granddaughter loves putting shapes in a box. Thanks for the giveaway!

I love any toy or activity that encourages creativity! Do not, and will not have a video game system in my house. I keep a box of creative thought type toys in my dining room for all of my little family and friends, and they never miss the Video games when they are here, and actually ask to come play at my house! These would be a great addition to my collection!

I'm a teacher for early art and music education, and I often let the kids experiment with colors or random craft material. It's awesome what they come up with! And we make up our own songs :)

We love all things creative here. Things like this are perfect in that they are open ended and can be used differently every time. Thanks for another great giveaway!

OOOOOOO....I think all 8 of my grandchildren would think this is a wonderful toy! And I could keep it in my kitchen for those times when I need 10 more minutes to finish their dinner.

After raising two, and now babysitting for one of those, being blessed with two grandchildren, I guess I have two. Plain wooden blocks, it's amazing what they can build on their own without instructions and just imagination. The other is puzzles. It's so much fun as they go through the three piece big knob puzzle to now our granddaughter is on 100 Piece puzzles. But I just bought some new ones for her baby brother of the three piece kind. He just turned one. Dawn, thank you for the chance.

One of our favorite "toys" from when my oldest was 6 months old is a playsilk. I love how open ended they are, there isn't anything they can't become.
