This 'toy' is probably my favorite of the Christmas gifts. Totally inspiring with simple shapes and bright colors.
[From Amazon]:The ultimate creativity toy! Original Colorforms will provide you with limitless possibilities. Designers, teachers, and toy collectors alike agree- this is the best creativity play set they've found. An exact replica of the Colorforms Set that launched the company in 1951-it was recently selected for the Toy Hall of Fame. Includes 350 brightly colored shapes in an elegant, spiral-bound book and case. The Colorforms easily attach to any glossy surface, or to one another, by applying slight pressure across the surface of each piece. A 2002 Parents' Choice Classic Award Winner.
When B sent me this text today of what C has been working on, I was a little excited to see how she had used the shapes to make monochromatic faces, but a little bummed that she found the secret hiding place I had hid them...because, you see, I kind of wanted this one all to myself.
