This is a unique art kit that is great for kids! A cute art case containing many cool art tools! It contains colored pencils, markers, pastels, two types of paints, a ruler, pencil sharpener, and eraser. Plus, there is a pad of art paper in a variety of weights and types for the different art tools. The case is made of heavy, durable cardboard. There are straps attached by snaps and they're easy to unsnap and open. The handles also snap open and closed. Inside the box are the cases that slide out, one on top of the other. This is definitely one of the things that makes it unique from other sets. This is a great case to take along on trips or just to stay organized. My daughter is 6 and she easily used all the items. She colored with all the tools to try them out. The pastels make bright and pretty pictures. The markers are quality and not dried out. She only had trouble with the watercolors which she couldn't get them moist enough immediately to paint with. Needed to soak with some drops of water to get them to work. But this is not unusual for watercolors. She also wished the kit included a green-colored pastel. There is an aqua-colored one, but not a true green. The pencil sharpener works well - we tried it on the colored pencils many times already. My daughter said "It's a very good set. It has everything I need to to my projects!" If she's happy, I'm happy!
