My 2 yr old daughter got this for Christmas, but our whole family enjoys it. Our 9 and 6 year olds like to play with it, and the adults love it too! It's a great mess-free way for little ones to get their artistic fix.
My son received the Aquadoodle for his 2nd birthday. My daughter has played with it almost everyday since he received it. They enjoy the toy and so do I. There is no mess to this toy and that is what I like. Make sure the kiddos do not use markers on the mat, my daughter did.
The crayons were the best part of this product. My toddler found the plastic fat holders difficult to handle and took the crayons out of them. Well, actually the crayons just fell out. The mechanism to adjust the crayons didn't work at all. The canvas was pointless, my child preferred to scribble on the tub itself. Another problem...where the heck do you buy replacement crayons without having to buy the whole package again?
If I could buy just the crayons and not the rest of the kit, that would be great. Hint hint Crayola........
