Do the Connetix Pastel & Rainbow Tiles go well together?

I'm so happy to have welcomed a whole new range of beautiful Connetix Magnetic Tiles to Milk Tooth in 2021 - meet the Connetix Pastel Tiles! Currently available in a 202 Piece Pastel Mega Pack, a 120 Piece Pastel Creative Pack, a 106 Piece Pastel Ball Run, and a 40 Piece Pastel Geometry Pack, the colours were specifically designed to be rich and earthy - no washed out tones here!

One of the questions I'm being asked since their introduction is: Do the new Pastel Connetix colours go well together with the original Rainbow Connetix colours? And the answer is a resounding: Yes, absolutely! Have a look at the following photo - don't they just perfectly complement each other? The Pastel tiles (top) don't fight with the Rainbow tiles (bottom) at all, instead they really fill out the range of hues and tones. So beautiful.
