Editorial Review

Why should big bouncy high-energy fun be reserved for carnivals and outdoor festivals? Now you can have the excitement of the bouncy castle often seen at those public venues in your own backyard. This castle set inflates with minimal effort once you hook it up to the heavy duty fan that is included. The packaging claims that the castle can be fully mounted in 45 seconds and in our informal test we did have pretty speedy results. Once its set up, kids up to 83 pounds are ready to get in and bounce (total weight should not exceed 250 pounds) in the yellow, red, and blue castle set. The entrance ramp and safety netting around the sides make for nice touches as does the convenient storage bag. --Charlie Williams ... Read more

Fantastic Fun
We purchased this item for our daughter's birthday party from Walmart.com. We were notified that it would be delivered in 7 business days, but to my surprise, we got the package in less than 48 hours later! The Bounce 'Round was a hit with all 9 kids, ranging from 1 to 5 years of age. It was easy to set up and take down. It's big enough to hold 4-5 toddlers but small enough to fit inside a garage or patio. It's not educational by any means but it keeps children occupied for hours! We also purchased 100 plastic balls to put inside the Bounce 'Round for added fun. We highly recommend this product.

VERY DISAPPOINTED
We ordered this on-line and paid the shipping cost because the only other bounce house we could find were 8 X 8 or smaller. This was going to be a present for our 4 year old and it was going to be used at his party. It stated right on the box 9X9. As my husband set it up, he thought that it looked rather small. He measured it corner to corner and it measured 7ft 6in by 7ft 6in. Not even close to being 9X9. It was very easy to blow up but we were very disappointed in the size. We returned it (...). We then called the manufacture to complain about false advertising and were handled very rudely!!!! WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE PRODUCT AND WITH SPINMASTER.

Motor Problems
Based on all the great reviews I purchased this product from a local ToyRus store. Much to my disappointment when I removed the contents of the box the motor was completely torn apart (it is metal so this was no easy task). I phoned the store and they graciously sent someone to my home to replaced the damaged merchandise. However, after removing the contents again there was a large gapping crack across the motor. This time the store said they would check the contents before bringing over a new motor. When the 3rd motor was delivered it looked "beat up" but was intact and did work. The gentleman who searched for the replacement and made the delivery said there were several more boxes with damaged motors in them. After finally getting it all together and setting it up (which was very easy) my soon to be 3-year-old wanted nothing to do with it. What a disappointment. It will go back ASAP.

Bouncin' Birthday Bash...
We wanted to rent a bounce house for my daughter's (...) birthday party but we didn't have the space to accomdate one of the rentals. I was on-line searching for a motorized Jeep for her birthday gift when I came upon the bounce 'round castle. We nixed the idea for the Jeep and opted for the bounce house. And I'm soooo glad that we did! My young lids just love it! It's sooooo easy to set up and take down. I was constantly scolding my two younger children for jumping on their beds, my furniture, etc. Now I just send them outside and they can jump until their legs turn to jello! In the long run it was much cheaper to purchase the bounce house than to rent one.

Cheaper at [local store]

The Aquadoodle isn't a pool or tub toy, but without water it's no fun at all. It's just a drawing mat after all, but kids will like the novelty of its disappearing colors. The 81 by 53-inch drawing mat is large enough for several kids to doodle on at a time, using the included magic marker pens that do not transfer color to other surfaces (to our knowledge …). Color from the pens appears when water touches the mat; it then fades out without a trace in 60 seconds or so. That's it: no ink, no paint, and no mess.Diane Beall ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I bought this today at target for my 2 year old daughter. We absolutly love it! She can doodle and draw to her hearts content and never run out of paper.....or be told to be careful to not color on the table. It is just water.....no mess what so ever! The drawings took about 2 minutes to completly disappear. What a great invention! Highly recommend!

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great idea!
I recently bought an Aqua Doodle for my 2 year old nephew, and it was a huge hit! He was immediately drawn to the mat, and understood how to use the pens right away. The best part was that his 3 year old cousin was able to sit with him and they both had a blast. This is a great toy, because there is absolutely no mess.

5-0 out of 5 stars I would NOT recommend this toy
I am a frequent buyer/reviewer for toys online and I am generally quite happy with them. This toy has a great concept, but I really wasn't thrilled with it. As the other reviewers have stated, it is a great toy...that is, until it's all wet. I found that the manufacturer SAYS, "image disappears in approx. 20 seconds.". This is where they are wrong. My kids LOVED playing with it, until they ran out of room to write stuff. It took so long to dry to become clear again, that I had to bring it in and put my hairdryer to it for an additional FIVE minute to dry it in order to continue using it. And this toy wasn't even drenched, just regular use. The idea of this toy is great, but has a big inconvenience. Maybe when it's a hot day it'll be better....I hope! I bought two, one for my daughter and one for my niece. I'm returning the unopened one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy Mom
This toy is awesome....Hats off to SpinMaster....I saw this toy online a month ago and went to Toys-R-Us to purchase it and they did not carry it yet...I was just there today and was so happy to see it on the shelf....My kids just opened it and they love it....They are 4 and 19 months old and this is something that they can play together and enjoy....My 4 year old loves to trace the alphabet...If anyone has preschool aged kids or younger this toy is a true winner!!!! Definitely worth the money....

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Special Toy - Highly recommend
This is a WONDERFUL activity toy for children of all ages - even adults! Several kids can play together on the large size mat and it is very neat, easy to store,very educational,provides hours of fun. The unique technology allows for children to draw with water so you never have to clean up or replace any pens etc. The images disappear after a few minutes so you always have a new writing area. I highly recommend this toy to everyone!! ... Read more

I LOVE THIS THING!!
I bought the bounce got my son's 2nd birthday party instead of renting one for $275 for 4 hours, I was skeptical at first and so was hubby but I love it love it love it, My sons love it I have a 2yr old and an 8 month old , For his party up to 5 kids fit in it with no problem 3 yrs and under, It was a hit for his party and we have used it about 4 times total, It inflates in 5 seconds and takes a while to disinflate, Its easy to put away and fold but it never fit in the box it came in so buy a bag for it. Anyway it must remain on constantly while in use. I love it , It's totally worth it. Make sure you put a large cloth or plastic cover under it to protect it from rocks and stuff. Have fun jumping i know we do!! Oh yeah even I have gone in there to play with my 2 kids :)

A "Wow!" Toy!
I bought a similar product from SpinMaster and am very pleased with it overall. More importantly, my kids are completely thrilled with this toy and are jumping maniacs! I got the circus themed one which is 7 feet tall. The jumping surface is just under 6'square. The quality is very high. I was surprised at the weight of the rubberized, backpack type fabric of the unit-the jumping surface is slip resistent rubber. The stitching seems very durable, often double stitched. The netting is soft, but strong and durable. The entrance/exit is secured with a velcro patch and the "opening" is reinforced well for all the grabbing it is sure to take. Mine came with a extra large very durable duffel bag, though I think it will take quite some effort to squeeze and roll the house up in order to get it to fit in the bag. I can't imagine that the fan will fit into the bag as well. The set up takes about five minutes-honestly. I place a tarp beneath it on the grass and hammer in 7 securing stakes, 2 additional stakes hold the fan upright. Once turned on, the whole thing inflates in 30-45 seconds. It's so quick it seems like it goes up instantly! Deflation is surprisingly quick as well-even with the fan attatched. When I have let the unit deflate on it's own it always collapses into/on itself-great design! If I just leave it for about 5 minutes it is remarkable how much air is released by itself. So far I just fold it over and "keep it wrapped" in the tarp because I keep putting it out every day. I've started keeping the stakes in the ground too, to further expedite the set up! I have a 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 yr old and they are delighted beyond belief! At first they questioned it's small size (compared to commercial ones they have jumped in). They think their bounce house is the bomb-diggity! We have 8 yr old neighbors who can't get enough of jumping in it. Because the weight is so substantial and the house has a wide base I believe that this toy could be used indoors with close adult supervision. Extra care would have to be taken to watch for house "moving" due to jumping and in keeping the fan upright. The fan base is freestanding, though the base is rather small for the large and heavy (metal) fan. All in all, I think this is a great splurge toy and it seems very durable. I expect to get several years use from it. The instructions read that the unit will remain inflated even with a small hole in it. I'm sure raft patch would be a good repair option, or duck tape in a pinch.

This is better than going to the amusement park!
I recently bought this for my sons 6th birthday and it was a hit. We purposedly had him unwrap it first so that we could set it up for the whole party to enjoy. Needless to say, it was better than any clown I've ever seen. The kids were in it for the rest of the day, and my neighbor just bought the Sponge Bob version to join in on the fun.

Great investment
This was definitely money well spent. The Spiderman version was a big plus for our 3 year-old. Our almost 6 year-old is having fun with it too. Sets up quickly and looks very durable. This provides great exercise and when winter comes around, it will easily go into our spare room. I can see this will be a toy that my boys will be interested in a very long time, unlike alot of the toys we buy them. ... Read more

Tons of Bounce for the Buck!
My son received this item as a birthday gift for his fourth birthday and he and his younger brother (2 years old) absolutely LOVE IT!!! They could spend all afternoon jumping in their SpongeBob Bounce'Round. It is just a nice size that we are able to fit it into our basement play area for the days that it is raining so that they both can still have a great time playing with their new gift. A great purchase for the money. It is also a great way to tire them out so they are ready for bedtime!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Volume Solution
I do understand how this guitar can be unnervingly loud, however I have also found out a way to limit the volume on this and many other childrens toys that do not have a mute (as I have done to many of my sons toys.) I usually put clear packaging tape (3M brand) over the speaker and slowly poke out some of the holes until I find my personal volume preference. Usually if you apply the tape clearly and tightly the child doesn't realize the volume difference or tape. Hope that helps...I am sure that this might work a little better than just hiding it somewhere out of sight when you finally fed up listening to it.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's got her singing and me grinning!
I bought this for my 3 year old daughter after I noticed that everytime we visited my cousin she always ran for the Wiggles Guitar. I also noticed that it was motivating her to sing along. We are a bilingual family and her speaking has been a bit delayed, but listening to the Wiggles and using this guitar have actually helped her become more vocal! I think that is pretty AMAZING for a toy!!

The only drawback is that the buttons play such short clips of the songs. Plus, for some reason my daughter likes to keep pressing the buttons over and over before the whole clip has played. If you thought Yummy Yummy Fruit Salad was a bit annoying before - try listening to just the first two notes played over and over and over and over!

I have not noticed that this guitar is particularly loud. And if things do get too noisy (i.e. too many repetitions of Wake Up Jeff!) we can always turn it off and my little Elvis-wannabee plays air-guitar to her heart's content.

I would definitely buy this toy again for my daughter. My daughter and I like it so much that I am planning on getting the microphone as well.

4-0 out of 5 stars fun, fun, fun!
I have a son that just turned 2. He loves the Wiggles and love this guitar. He will play with it for hours. It is a great toy for a Wiggles fan.

4-0 out of 5 stars Most Popular Toy at our House!!!
My 2 1/2 year old got this for Christmas because she LOVES the Wiggles. She plays with it everyday and likes to play it when they are on TV singing. Now my 10 month old loves it too and they fight over it. Yes, it is loud and can get annoying, but my girls LOVE it!

4-0 out of 5 stars No, seriously, it's TOO LOUD!
My 3-year-old loves the Wiggles, and this guitar, but I wholeheartedly agree with the others who have noted that it's WAY too loud--this can't be good for toddlers' tender ears, let alone the parents' nerves. I'm really surprised that more parents haven't complained. It's obnoxiously (and I think, dangerously) loud, and for this reason alone, I wouldn't buy it again, even though she loves the toy. I will definitely be trying to find a way to modify it so we don't all go deaf or suffer permanent damage! ... Read more

Perfect for a busy toddler
My daughter loves this flip sofa. At one she could sit on it and cross her little legs. The best part is its second use. When she is napping down stairs we just flip it open and let her relax on the comfy foam. It is much nicer than having a play pen in the living room.

Disney Princess Flip Open Sofa
My daughter love this sofa. My only complaint is that I did not receive the color on the pictures and it will have match my daughter's room. Instead of a light pink and receive a dark pink almost magenta color. Disappoint only on that.

Naptime for 15-month-old
We bought this for our 15-month-old daughter to nap in, and so far so good. She also likes to flop around on it, since it's 100% foam rubber with no frame or anything hard to hurt her. It's small and really for just one child, even though the description says two (they'd have to be really small kids) The length when folded out is perfect for her to take a nap or just jump around on, but a taller or older child might not fit. It's small and light and depending on my daughter's mood, goes from room to room as needed. It will probably also go with us in the car to grandma's. All in all, this was a good investment--under 30 bucks-- and looks like it will last a while.

TODDLERS LOVE THE FLIP-OUT SOFA!
MY FIFTEEN MONTH OLD DAUGHTER RECEIVED THE PRINCESS SOFA AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT FROM HER AUNT. SHE BARELY GOT OFF THE SOFA ALL DAY. SHE COLLECTED ALL HER DOLLS AND HAD THEM CUDDLE WITH HER. SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES THIS SOFA! IT WAS SUCH A BIG HIT THAT HER AUNT HAS GIVEN ONE TO HER TWO YEAR OLD NIECE AND ONE TO HER SEVENTEEN MONTH OLD NEPHEW TOO. THEY ALL LOVE THEM! I PLAN TO PURCHASE ONE FOR MY FRIENDS 12 MONTH OLD. THIS IS A GREAT GIFT FOR THIS AGE GROUP.

small
We bought this for our 4 year old daughter for christmas. She doesn't even fit in it in the flipped open position. I'm sure it's great for naps for very young kids. But, I really thought it would be bigger. They really are cute thought!!!! ... Read more

Liked it a lot
I think these bubbles are great fun, as an outside toy only. The drip top could have lasted longer - it fell into the jar pretty quickly, and then the bubbles dripped all over me. Still, a lot of fun, especially for the money.

Hunter's favorite thing!
Our Westie, Hunter, loves to catch bubbles. These bubbles stick around a while so he can keep catching them. This should be a dog or cat toy too!

"they loved them"
My sister's response to the bubbles sent as a birthday gift (her children are 3, 7, 9 and 12): "They loved them. The bubbles do harden after being blown and can be caught carefully with an open hand or on a flat surface. If you use 2 fingers or squeeze them just the slightest bit, they get squashed right away, and they weren't able to stack them. But they were great fun anyway, much better than regular bubble soap."

A Disappointment
I must have received a defective batch - the bubbles were just ordinary soap bubbles. They didn't last any longer than any other bubbles. Also, the bubble wand in one of them came apart before I even had a chance to use it. All of the other reviews are so positive that I can only conclude that I got a dud!

very cool bubbles
I picked these up for my niece & nephew, but curiosity got the better of me and I opened a package. One blow on the wand and you get dozens of shiny little bubbles. A few pop right away but most dried up as they floated down and clung to the floor, table, couch etc. My two cats were fascinated, especially when the bubbles on the floor started rolling around. When you pop the bubbles, they actually make a little popping noise, and the residue is very easy to get off your fingers, floor, clothes & furniture. Probably better to use them outside, though! ...

Much Better Then I Had Expected!
I originally saw this sofa at a local Toy R Us but did not buy it because I thought it looked like it was flimsy and not worth the money. I started searching online for a piece of furniture for my 1 1/2 year old. I almost bought the Pottery Barn Kids chair, but then came here and read the reviews for this sofa. After reading all the praise from parents I decided to try it and am glad I did! My son loves this little sofa and it's the perfect size for him. We have hard wood floors so I needed a comfy place where he could sit. The pull out sofa feature is adorable and my son likes this as much as sitting on it folded up. I found the Winnie the Pooh to be the best pattern for a boy, the blue is a nice shade and the pattern isn't obnoxious for my living room like the Spiderman and Wiggles colors. All and all I would say this was money well spent. I like it better then a bean bag. This sofa is built for a kid. Don't let the lack of structure (it's all cushion) fool you.

Excellent choice
I bought this couch for my twin girls 1st birthday. It came early, so they got an early present. They LOVE IT!! They have a blast climbing on and off it, laying on it, sitting on it. The cover comes off so it can be washed. Good investment. They can both sit on it together too! ... Read more

Editorial Review

With a remote control that is simple to master, this two-speed airplane is perfect as a first radio-controlled toy. The Resistor takes off from its own computer-operated launch pad with a single press of the Launch button from the remote. A large toggle button moves the plane either left or right as the plane hits scale speeds of up to 400 mph and flies up to 300 feet away. For quick speed, a Thrust button on the remote gives it a 25-percent extra power boost, and for a smooth, even landing, a Land button brings the Resistor down safely. Except for a few hard plastic components that house the engine, this lightweight plane is made almost entirely of Styrofoam, which damages easily if it hits obstacles so it's best to practice flying in open, treeless areas. This toy requires six C batteries for the charger and one 9-volt battery for the plane itself and requires only a three-minute charge in the docking station before it's ready to fly. --Cristina Vaamonde ...

Lots of fun for adults, might frustrate younger kids a bit
I bought the Resistor for myself after noting its mention in "Consumer Reports." It is a lot of fun if you pay attention to the directions.

First, don't overcharge it and be sure to condition the internal battery by FULLY discharging it before recharging. It takes a little extra time but it keeps the plane charging properly. When the propellors on mine slow down enough that the plane won't fly any more, I just hold it with it turned on until the propellors stop turning. Then I turn it off and recharge it.

Second, they aren't kidding when they tell you to fly it in an open field. I take mine to the park and fly it on a soccer field. There is plenty of room there and it flies great. However, there is no way to fly it if there are even a few trees in the way. It just doesn't turn sharply enough and you WILL hit a tree in short order. The styrofoam is durable enough to handle crashing into the grass with no problem but a tree isn't very good for it and you run the risk of breaking the wings.

Third, you CANNOT fly it in a strong breeze. The engines aren't powerful enough. It seems to work best in a very light breeze, like 2-3 MPH, The head wind helps the plane to get enough airspeed to take off. In dead air, it flies fine but it's a little harder to launch it.

With the above in mind this is a GREAT toy. It's a lot of fun to fly it around and turn it and make it go up and down with the remote. You can also learn a lot about how an airplane works even though it isn't controlled like a real airplane would be with a rudder and so forth (it manuvers by ramping the engine power up and and down.) Because of the control method it isn't all that responsive, and as a result flying it might be a little frustrating for younger children. I think the "ages 8 and up" on the box is a bit optimistic. I think 12 and up is more accurate.

All in all a great toy for older children and adults, as long as you have a suitable place to fly it. I really like mine.

Hard to fly
I got this for my birthday. It broke while putting together. Got a new one and ok this time. It was fun to watch fly for a couple minutes, then lost control and it went into a tree. It broke when it fell out. I taped it up like the directions said, but when I went to fly again, was fun to chase, but you really do not have any control. It needs a string so you can find it when it fly away.

Not worth the money
Very disappointing!! It is not durable especially considering that crashes will happen with novices and this is geared to the beginner. Even tossed into the breeze as directed, the plane crashed. It was frustrating for an 8 year old boy.

Air Hogs Resister
This is the bomb! With its throttle and thrust button it's just like flying an air plane. And it flies like a plane to. My two favorite parts are the Auto-Pilot take and the extremely smooth landing all in one touch of a button. It also has two piloting levels, beginner and advanced.

You don't have to bend the prop and reverse wires.
I read in one of the reviews that since both motors turned in the same direction and the resulting torque caused his plane to steer to one side when the power was on, he recommended twisting one of the propellers and reversing the tiny wires inside the plane to one motor. There is a much simpler way to correct a torque turn; bend the rear edge of the vertical tail in the opposite direction the plane wants to turn under motor thrust. The plane will turn towards the side you bend the rear of the tail. It shouldn't take much; if the plane goes straight under motor power, it might turn slightly in a power-off glide. Split the difference, or just make slight in-flight corrections when you are under power. This will work much better than trying to bend a propeller 90 degrees and into a shape it wasn't meant to be.

For people who might have flown small fragile styrofoam planes in the past, it should be noted that this plane is made with Expanded Poly-Propylene foam (EPP) not Expanded Poly-Styrene or Styrofoam, and is far more durable. I regularly fly EPP motorless planes in updrafts caused by the wind moving up a hill or slope; these EPP planes, reinforced with filament tape and colored packing tape (or plastic iron-on film) are so tough that they are often flown into each other in midair on purpose (full-contact combat) and can take shocks like flying at high speed into a tree trunk which would shatter a plane made from any other material. EPP foam is revoluionizing the electric powered radio control industry due to its ability to bounce, not break and has been used in sailplanes (gliders) with up to 10-foot wingspans. Should you crash your Air Hog on a regular basis, a good way to stiffen it up is with filament tape or colored packing tape, to keep the foam from 'chunking' in a hard crash. But keep it as light as possible so it will still fly.

Your kids should have an excellent time at the ballfield with the Air Hog. Flying the Air Hog can lead to questions about why airplanes fly, future interest in the galaxy of RC flight from engine powered to electric, to slope or thermal gliders, to designing model planes; even to the real thing in many cases. I can think of seven people in my own extended family that have enjoyed flying model airplanes, and four who have taken the steps to fly real ones, including one airline pilot. In every case their interest was sparked at an early age by flying toys of far less capability than the Air Hog. I can't think of a more varied, stimulating and just plain fun hobby to enjoy. ...

hate to be honest
but this is one toy I was TRUELY VERY dissapionted in. My 3 1/2 yr old had down syndrome and his hardest developmental area has been speach. When I saw the mic I though what a cool idea sence he LOVES the wiggles maybe this could be something that will help encorage him to talk more. When we got the thing home he wanted nothing to do with it, it played 2 times and then just quit working . . tryed new batteries with no luck sadly we returned it to the store the next day. And didn't bother to replace it with a new one, we opted for the gutar instead ( which he absolutaly LOVES )

great toy!
My son, 2, picked out the microphone at the store the other day. He hasn't stopped playing with it since. It is a very cool toy. He has the guitar and I like that most of the songs on the microphone are different than the guitar (2 are the same but those are 2 of his favorites). The microphone feature is pretty cool as well. My son has occasionally has to tell me it is his turn because I will end up singing to the songs as well.
The only bad thing about this toy is that the on off switch is a big button that is right where little hands are. I told my son that is the off button and only to press the people-he understands but for someone younger it may be difficult.

Golly, get out of the way, here comes the next superstar!
We got this toy for a birthday gift and when my child opened it, he stood up on the counter, raised one hand in the air, and started singing with it! What a ham! Now it goes to bed with him, goes in the car, you name it, the microphone is there. Our buttons get stuck too but it will resume so that more fun can ensue. Boy, get this thing for sure if you have a Wiggler - my child spends hours with this and the guitar. I think he's developing his own three-year-old band!

Toy Fan in Texas
I have two girls (3 and 1 1/2). This toy was a hit with both of them. The 1 year old just pushes buttons until she gets a song to play. She thinks that is part of the game and it doesn't bother her at all. She also likes to "sing" into the microphone and hear her own voice. My 3 year old does not have any problems getting the songs to play. Her favorites are "Wake Up Jeff" and "Crunchy Munchy" but she listens to all of them and sings her heart out into the microphone! I have not experienced the mysterious pauses that others have talked about. We have played with the toy non-stop for weeks and have had great luck with it. As I am not a huge Wiggles fan I thought it would be very irritating but I was suprised to find that even I enjoy singing the songs! It is a very entertaining toy and not so loud that it gets tiresome.

For The Love of Wiggles
This was a Christmas gift for my 3-year old, but my 18-month old took it for her own! She loves pushing the different buttons and dancing to the tunes. The only drawback is that she sometimes accidentally pushes the on/off button which is the big yellow Wiggles button on the handle (versus a switch that is harder to turn on/off). She plays with this as well as the Wiggles Guitar. ... Read more

Excellent Choice!!!
I bought this sofa bed for my 2 1/2 year old daughter and she loves it. She loves to sit on the couch and watch tv but what she loves most is pulling out the bed and laying on it or just playing around and having fun with it. She has a blast and she uses it every day. This was a great purchase. The sleeping bag and couch lining can be removed and washed if needed and it is easy for them to fold and unfold all by themselves. It is small so just be aware of that. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good clean fun with Thomas!
Educators may think this product stifles free play and creativity, but if your son or daughter is a Thomas Fan, this packet of Aqua Doodle mats are ideal for paint-time without the usual mess.There are four mats, each with a different picture.The nearly blank mats are smaller than a regular 8x11 sheet of paper, and when water is applied with the crayon sized aqua doodle pen or even a regular paint brush then the Thomas picture is revealed.My oldest prefers to use a paint brush rather than the AquaDoodle pen that is included.After a few minutes, depending on saturation, the page dries and is ready to be "painted" again.Clean up is easy requiring only a paper towel to wipe up and water left over.No mess, no fuss, and my kids love them (ages 3.5 and 15 months!!!!)

I also purchased the Pooh set, but found that those sheets are already partially revealed, more like the paint with water coloring books.The Thomas set is only shows the Thomas emblem when dry.

Overall, I recommend this product for good clean fun. ... Read more
