No toy serves up an instamagic escape faster than a kaleidoscope can. And Lithuanian sculptor Zilvinas Stankevicius’ eco-friendly version, made from responsibly sourced, fast-growing hazel branches and natural Baltic amber (not the unfriendly plastic or cheap metals that are use to make standard versions) is simply dreamy. A simple peek into the tubular scope transports kids to a Technicolor, multifaceted alter dimension, where friends multiply, colors shift and new galaxies appear just beyond reach — all without every leaving (or harming) the planet.
