This is the first kaleidoscope ive held since i was a little kid and it was absolutely wonderful! I got it as a gift but found myself a little tempted to keep it because I was enjoying looking through it so much when it arrived in the mail. It is 100% worth the price, if not more if i am being honest, but i definitely appreciate the affordability of such a nice one! I might have to get one for myself after I mail this one out as a gift!
Pros:The design is very simple and sleek, and nicely weighted so it doesnt feel cheap! Even though it is very small, i dont feel like the visuals you get looking through are any less exciting than if you were using a larger kaleidoscope with more glass.
Cons:Barely a con, but because the tube is so narrow sometimes the beads dont move much or at all when you turn the tube once they fall into a certain position, but that is easily fixed by giving the tube a little shake!
