One of the Founding members of kaleidoscopes by Peach Allen Wilson wrote " During the period of the 80s, Kaleidoscopes by Peach consisted of three partners and several people hired by us to assist in the making of the scopes. The partners consisted of myself, Allen Wilson, Mark Reynolds (Peach's brother) and Peach. My wife, Karen, was the main constructor of the end pieces. Credit goes to Peach for his initial ideas but the company was also built upon the ingenuity of many others. So, it is 'Kaleidoscopes by Peach' that you are selling but not kaleidoscopes by 'Peach Reynolds'. I myself put more than a decade into that artistic endeavor and feel that many others should be recognized.
With all that said, Kaleidoscopes by Peach fell apart due to some unfortunate circumstances with other people in the business. Peach and I decided to leave the company in Mark's hands and he has performed well with his beautiful kaleidoscopes."
