Who invented Colorforms®?

Colorforms® were invented by two young art students, Harry and Patricia Kiselevitz in their New Jersey home in 1951. The couple purchased rolls of colorful vinyl plastic to decorate their home, a cheaper option than paint at the time, and noticed that the pieces stuck to one another without any additional adhesive. They began to cut small, colorful shapes to decorate their bathroom, and invited guests to do the same, setting out a basket with scissors and pieces of the colorful plastic. And there, the first Colorforms® sets were born!
