"grows with your child and last for years!…"
My son received this as a gift when he was 3 and used it a lot. What I did not expect was that he is now approaching 8 and still takes it to bed with him every night! We've drawn pictures on it, practised letters and words, used it for noughts and crosses ad nauseum, hangman and now it is used for daily list of football fixtures and statistics (real and imaginary). We use it to write football scores when the game ends after bedtime so it's the first thing he sees in the morning and it was even used to leave a message for Father Christmas!
I imagine that life would be poorer without it and if he had only one toy, this would be it.Read moreLess

Comments from other mumsnetters: "A souped up etch-a-sketch which they all really enjoy." "You can safely leave them drawing without coming back to find paint/ crayon everywhere." "It's great for teaching pen control is very sturdy and some of the best pictures get drawn on here." "All three of mine have loved drawing on this and it saves them scribbling on loads of paper." "You can make good patterns with the magnetic shapes provided and kids love the noise it makes when clearing the screen." "Really good value, particularly as it lasts them for such a long time."Read moreLess

Brilliant! It's a favorite with both of my daughters (7 & 5) and has been since they got it 2 years (or so) ago. My 5 year old is in reception class, so is learning new words and this is great fun and saves soooo much paper! My 7 year old loves drawing and this is an easy option to take with her when we go on long journeys.Read moreLess

Good, CLEAN fun. My son tends to leave it alone for weeks and then have a blast on it for a few days then leave it alone again. But it's an improvement on the etch-a-sketch and when he does play with it he enjoys it. Very portable too.Read moreLess
