Despite reading poor reviews, I decided to go ahead a purchase this item to be used by kids ages 10 and 12. When done with a group, partnering up so they can take turns pumping, it turned into a really fun activity. I bought additional regular sized markers of many different colors. I also purchased a set of sticky notes in the shape of letters, so they could tape place the letters down, airbrush all around it in different shades, stripes and patterns and then peeling the letters off to reveal a beautiful background with words spelled out in white. In addition to the low cost of the machine and the markers, this can be packed to be taken on any family trip, and can enhance any family outing, picnic or hike. Purchase blank white tee shirts, hats, or even shoelaces to decorate- and make a keepsake with a fun activity your family will remember! It worked very nicely on fabric as well as regular paper, although when the fabric got wet it washed off a bit. The markers I bought weren't really for fabric... Hats off to crayola for being the mastermind behind another kid friendly, creativity inducing, cost effective activity!
I got this for my 7 year old Grandson for Christmas. We had a great time making pictures. He loved the stencils and even used just the markers and the stencils for some ofpictures. Hightly recommend this product however I think it needs somesupervision..
