MORPH-O-SCOPES by OOZ & OZ -- Mirror-aculous Optical Illuison Art Activities for Kids (Review)


Morph-O-Scopes Circus Kit

I am always looking for something fun to do when I have my 6 year old nephew over to visit.  Because we have two daughters, are house is filled with dolls, and other girly toys -- none, which he likes to play with.  So, when I stumbled upon MORPH-O-SCOPES online, I had to reach out to the vendor and request a sample to try out.  If you have never seen or heard about MORPH-O-SCOPES, from OOZ & Oz before, then you are missing here.  Here is more about it --

Amazing Anamorphic Art Coloring Pages & Brain-Tickling Optical Illusion Fun

Find up-side-down morphed shapes on the paper and crayon ‘em to make color appear in the right shape in the right-side-up mirror reflections. There’s a tiger leaping through a flaming hoop, trained bears, a strongman, trained seals, trapeze acts, clowns, and dozens more circus-themed morphs in the circus kit. Anamorphic Art Activities:  connect morphed dots, complete morphed pictures, navigate a morphed maze, create a morph, read slant art, play with a “slider,” and our 4-Dot Challenge – a snap for some five year-olds that stymies some grown-ups. Right-brainers love our new twist on coloring! Left-brainers love figuring out how morphs are made!
OOZ & OZ creates Morph-O-Scopes – fun optical illusion art activities adored by children all over the world. Toys that engage all cultures and all ages, across the learning spectrum – garden variety, gifted, exceptional, and autistic.  Award-winning art and science toys and unique hand-eye coordination party games that surprise and delight and teach and challenge children, just enough.

How Does it Work?:

Isn't this the coolest thing.  My nephew and I thought so when we created our circus scenes.  I couldn't believe how the time flew when playing with this no-batteries needed toy.  When my husband came home with the girls, after taking them out for the day, my nephew and I had been playing with the MORPH-O-SCOPES for only 2 hours.  I know, I couldn't believe it.  Usually I am trying to figure out what to do to fill up time with him, as I am not used to entertaining boys.

This fun arts and craft type toy will make kids think.  And, what is so great about this, is that you don't have to be an artist or good at drawing to play with this kit.  If you can trace, you can enjoy this unique toy, which has won over 18 toy awards so far.  So, get your children off the computer and sit them down at the table to enjoy this fun-filled circus kit.  In addition to the circus kit, OOZ & OZ also offers a sports kit, as well as great party fun packets:

I am loving how it comes in a go-anywhere carrying case, making this a fun take along activity for long car rides, while waiting at doctor's offices, or to bring to the grandparents house.  Have two children?  Don't worry as this kit comes with two decoders, for twice the fun.  I loved being able to create fun illusion art right alongside my nephew.  For me it was a great stress reliever.

After experiencing this fun and unique activity, which is geared towards children ages 5-14 (but would be entertaining for older children and even adults), I definitely will be buying more of these kits to give as gifts, and to have on hand for the next time my nephew comes to stay.  It will make for a great rainy day activity.

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
