“Kids loved the kaleidoscopes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

This is a great little store, easy to find on the Main Street. At the front of the store there is a great range of kids kaleidoscopes which the kids (and adults) had great fun with. We ended up with quite a few purchases but they didn't break the bank, the cheapest being 4 dollars and our most expensive being 12 dollars. We didn't venture to the back of the shop where a breakage may have been very costly!

“A must see if you visit Jerome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

Ok, even the guys found this place pretty cool. It's a neat store, boasting the larest kaleidoscope collection in the world! It's not that big of a place but they packum in. I visit it everytime we go. I love that they let you touch & pick things up, even the kids are allowed with some adult supervision! I think you'll enjoy it!

“Beautiful gift store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

We visited this store based on another shop owners recommendation and I'm glad she suggested it. The kaleidoscopes ranged from inexpensive to "Be careful with that, we can't afford it if you break it!!" However, I did overhear one of the employees encouraging other shoppers to be "hands on" in the store. Nice range of products and something for every budget. Make sure you stop in while in Jerome.
