4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD WIPE CLEAN BOARD BOOK 17 Jun 2010
By Crafty Marie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Board book|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a good wipe-clean board book - my daughter (3) loves wipe clean activity books full stop and they last and last unlike paper activity books.

This one was just ok for us. It doesn't have a great deal of pages to it and I think it is limited in what it is asking the child to do - copy a picture. Perhaps my daughter is too young to get the copying concept as she gets bored quite quickly and then just scribbles. So maybe it is better for an older child or for a child who really wants to learn to draw.

I also think it a little pricey for what it is. And personally for a little extra I would recommend My Big Activity Work Book [With 2 Wipe-Clean Pens] which has simply tons of pages (56) and is packed full of activities which are also educational - tracing letters, numbers, shapes, basic addition, 4x4 sudoku and dot-to-dots. My daughter cannot do all of this but can certainly do quite a bit with the bonus that there is a lot more to last her another couple of years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy book for the car 17 Jun 2010
By Mark Loughridge VINE VOICE
Format:Board book|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My daughter aged 4 loved the look of this book and has enjoyed using it on and off over the last few days. The idea of 'whiteboard' wipe clean pages appealed to her as this is not something she has much experience of. Her 6 year old sister has taken an interest in the book too, but I think it is really geared for younger children. I was slightly disappointed that there were only 6 different images to draw - a fairy cake, a vase of flowers, a bowl of fruit, a supermarket trolley, a bag of sweets and a teddy bear. However, there are 5 spaces for each one, with varying degrees of picture left to fill in. I imagine that this book will end up in the car for long journeys and could be a good time filler. I just hope that when the marker supplied dries up that we can use any other marker, otherwise that will be the end of the book!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good idea, but.... 17 Jun 2010
By SilentSinger TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Board book|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In principle this book is an excellent idea to entertain and amuse children of 3+, although to be honest it does suit the 4+ age group somewhat better. It consists of five double spread board pages with instructions how to draw a specific item - i.e. a teddy bear relating to a toy shop in a grid form which the child can replicate on the right hand page using the included whiteboard marker.

It's a really innovative idea, but like many things in life, the concept is better than the reality as unless you allow the ink to dry properly it smudges onto surrounding fabrics/surfaces. My son is especially impatient and cannot wait for even the smallest things, so this meant that the ink smeared everywhere and try as I might, I can't remove it from my husband's top.

In conclusion, a good idea, but use with caution!

5.0 out of 5 stars All round entertainment 27 May 2010
Format:Board book|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Good for those with short concentration span,loves drawing and like to redraw things again and again (namely my 4 yera old niece0. Not much problem with wiping off Lostt he pen almost immediately but manage to get just a normal white board marker instead which works ok. Just ce careful whilst wipingo off, can get ink everywhere so wait for it to dry off before attempting again. Overall, good fun educational product and cheap and cheerful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little diversion 23 April 2010
By Supertzar TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Board book|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Six wipeable hardback scenes with a black marker pen and sample example pictures built up over 4 grids for children to copy from.

Our 6 and 2 year olds loved it - and are still arguing over whose book it is. The both found it fun and addictive and its a good few minutes before they need other stimuli - which is about as good as most things get.

The book layout and design is attractive, the concept is good, the variation in designs wide enough (given the likely attention span) and the book is well-built and solid. In short, a great present idea.

By I love New York VINE VOICE

Bright and cheerful pictures for your children to copy and learn to scale there drawing. The pages are whiteboard style and it comes with black marker that easily wipes from the books pages......WARNING - It does not come off anything that isn't the book!

It will provide hours of fun for my little dudes.

Great value as most kids books seem to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, for about quarter of an hour 29 April 2011
By Russell Smith VINE VOICE
Format:Board book|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is fairly short, with only 6 items to draw, but my twins (now 3 and a half) are busily copying the teddy, flowers, sweets etc. There are four steps to drawing each image, and they're all quite clear.

I thought it was quite challenging for them at first, but they're improving quickly, which I guess is the whole point. The pictures also wipe off fairly well with a dry piece of kitchen roll.

The two important things that I've just learnt are:

1. Don't leave kids alone with a felt pen, and

2. A new drawing book is only interesting for 15 minutes at the most...
