Scroll down to see pictures of my kaleidoscopes.  Click on the thumbnails to see a bigger picture and a description. Due to the popularity of my kaleidoscopes, I'm now taking orders for May delivery for my kaleidoscopes. If you'd like to order something, please check out my kaleidoscopes below to get an idea of what's available and then e-mail me  If this link doesn't work for you, email me at kaleidoscopeguy at (replace "at" with @ ) Make sure the word kaleidoscope is in the subject line.  If my spam filter kicks your e-mail out and you don't hear back from me within 1 business day, please page me at (515) 574 1615.  When the robot says "please enter your number", type in your phone number from the keypad of your phone.

Some woods take a while to get here, others may become impossible to get.  Sometimes you may have to make a different choice as the drying time for the wood might be more than you want.  Wood prices vary.  The base price on my larger kaleidoscopes is based on the cost of domestic hardwoods.  Some, but not all, tropicals cost more and I charge accordingly.  The "woods I use" link has surcharges which are valid for all the larger scopes.  Shipping is via USPS Priority mail.  You pay only the postage cost which is usually around $5.80-$11.30 per shipment. Large flat rate boxes cost $16.85.  Iowa residents will be charged 7% sales tax.  I accept PayPal and checks.  If you choose to pay by check, I'll e-mail you a pdf  invoice and ship when your check arrives.

To talk to me personally, leave your number on my pager at (515) 574 1615. The robot will ask for your number which you'll need to punch in from your phone's keypad.  If you have an extension add that too.  A land line no longer fits into my lifestyle and cell phones don't work in most spots around here but I  should get back to you quickly if you page me.  If you haven't heard from me in a half hour please page me again.

Although the flagship products are the kaleidoscopes, I make several other fun things too.

I also provide learning experiences.  They're especially popular with Girl Scout & 4-H groups as well as family gatherings and "Girls Night Out" and whatever other excuse you can come up with to have fun with a group of people.  There's more about that here:
