Kaleidos is one of four new award-winning "ColorToys" wooden blocks from Brinca Dada.

Kaleidos allows children to discover how color works as they construct with 42 different colors, using notched units that allow for various combinations of hue, value, and intensity—the basic attributes of color. The color design possibilities are even greater because each block features natural wood grain on one side.

Kaleidos was designed by renowned toy designer and early childhood education expert, Karen Hewitt of Learning Materials Workshop. Previously available to schools and other educational institutions, Kaleidos is now available to the public through a partnership with Brinca Dada. Kaleidos is the winner of Creative Child Magazine's 2013 Top Toy of the Year Award.

Kaleidos is an open-ended toy whose only boundaries are a child's imagination...which is to say, limitless.
