Nature Technicolor is known for their range of educational vending machine toys that teach kids about animals, plants and other living organisms, much like these histological slides that inform young generations about microscopic life forms.
When one thinks of toy vending machines, "scientific" and "educational" are not the first words that come to mind but the Japanese company is aiming to change this notion. Their colorful slides educate budding biologists with cross-sections of various microscopic organisms.
Nature Technicolor's educational vending machine toys come in a range of 8 different varieties that explore "plant tissue, pollen, human tissue, bacteria and viruses." The products were developed with the help of educational model maker Kyoto Kagaku who loved collaborating with the learning-centered toy company.
