You are probably very familiar with Colorforms featuring your favorite cartoon characters, but that is not how Colorforms started out. The original Colorforms box sets began appearing in the 1950s and featured bright shapes and “modern” basic designs. Only later was the series expanded to include cartoon character sets. Happily the original Colorforms Set is available again in all of its retro glory. I was able to play with one of these classic sets this past holiday season and I would just like to say, who needs Star Wars or the Smurfs when you have triangles?
