Product Description

Product Description

Kids will be mesmerised by the magical Crayola Doodle Penguin. Creative youngsters can choose from 100 picture or activity outlines by moving the cute penguin's flippers. Pop in a pen and off he goes - the little bird whizzes around the paper sketching outlines of whatever he's been asked for. He can doodle pictures of all sorts of things - from cars to princesses; as well as spirals, numbers, clock faces, and even dot-to-dot pictures or mazes. Doodle Penguin is great fun for kids aged four and up and comes with three pens and ten sheets of paper. It requires four AA batteries, which are not included.

Safety Warning

Not suitable for children under 3 years of age.

It looked great in the telly adverts, but when we opened it to see the instructions, well, lets say, you need a good second or third read to fully comprehend its potential. But it failed to deliver once you knew the length of time it takes to draw.

* Basically there is a switch on its back side which allows you to make the penguin draw in an unbroken line (often quicker) or in a dotted line (takes much longer) format.

* The two flippers each have five settings (different angles) and using the two flippers in combination, you can create a multitude of pre-programmed pictures - these are set out in the instructions and you'd best not loose it, as it's your guide to what you want it to draw.

* An additional switch allows you to draw :
(i). pictures of stuff like scenes, animals and objects, as opposed to
(ii). educational pic such as mazes, numbers (1 to 6) and letters (Aa to Dd) (suited I think to 3 to 4 year olds in nursery class).

(Recap: 5 (left flipper settings ) x 5 (right flipper settings) x 2 (types of pictures) = 50 separate pre-programmed images to chose from, and then your choice of whole or broken lines for each picture)

* The button on it's belly starts the penguin, though there is an on/off switch on the underside.

Take the cap off the felt-tip pen and put aside, remove the red ear muffs on the penguin and stick the felt pen in the hole in its head all the way down until you can't push it in anymore. To remove the pen, use the cap which has enough grip to enable you to pull the pen out.

We didn't tape the paper down, although we did place it on a flat surface (table). When the thing finished drawing, there were unclosed areas which didn't match the promise in the pics.

Penguin wibbles and wobbles but doesn't draw.
This toy was purchased for my four year olds birthday. It will complete two instructions then sticks and wont move even though we can hear the motors moving. Very disapointing even though we have tried a variety of paper and surfaces to run it on.

Recently bought this after my 5 yr old put it on her birthday list. Unfortunately Doodle P was a HUGE disappointment, quite simply he doesnt do what it says on the box ! Cue one very disappointed Birthday girl and one very fed up Mom ! As the previous review states he takes forever to "Draw" something, which normally is just some random scribbles that in no way resemble a picture. I would avoid buying, save your your money. Im going to attempt a refund as the poor thing is not fit for purpose. Mind you as my hubby has just pointed out he may just be depressed and expressing himself, wouldnt you, miles from home with a felt tip inserted somewhere painful!!!

I don't know what others are talking about.
Bought this for our daughters 4th Birthday and as long as you follow the instructions, it's fab!
It draws perfect pictures when the paper is stuck down to a flat surface, the ballerina picture in particular is great. Make sure you store in the box as instructed and all is good.
If you don't follow the instructions, what do you expect???
Don't let the reviews put you off, fun for kids of all ages ;)!!!

I bought this toy for my sons birthday and was very disapointed with the end result. I followed all the instructions, (which are lengthy and dispite the box saying for 4+ my son could not have set it up) and placed the penguin in the middle of the paper, it moved and did not lift the pen, all the pictures had lines accross them where it moved to start the picture. Even if the line could be ignored non of the actual picture lines meet up. On the box the pictures are perfect, however when you open the box the diagrams of the pictures show short lines, lines not meeting etc... It also takes forever to draw the pictures (on average 6 minutes a picture) and by the time its finished most of the children i have shown it too have lost their interest and are off somewhere else. This was not worth it for me.

I ordered the doodle penguin for my 4 year old, it does what it says on the tin, but he did get a bit impatient at the time it took to draw one picture.

Also, pay attention to the instructions - you definitely need to tape the paper down, or it goes all over the place! Also, the pen is easy to put in, but difficult to get back out again!

However, saying that, my son loves it, and its a good way of getting some extra colouring pictures!

I bought this for my little girl for Christmas, very pleased with it and she absolutely loves it. The instructions took a couple of minutes to read to get the gist of how things work, if your not an instructing reading person (lol) this product is a no because you couldn't do it on guess work, took some explaining to my little one whose's 5 but now she is well away, particularly loves the butterfly and ballerina drawings.

However writing this review as good as I am, I only paid £8 new for the penguin I wouldn't pay the suggested RRP of £24.99

We purchased the Doodle Penguin after a visit to the zoo for our 2 year old Niece. Our 6 year old nephew has mastered it, as previous reviews have said it does appear the unit drawers random lines some looking like the picture on the instructions and others not, but this was due to pushing the marker down too far in the penguin so it sticks out before it starts working.
This is where we went wrong.

The trick is ;

Push the pen in so about 1cm sticks out of the top.

Use the penguin's red ear warmers to push the pen down until the warmer slips into the grooves on the side of the penguin's head.

Turn the unit on which re-sets the pen to the correct height,

Choose the picture you want with the wings, full line or dot to dot with the tail, pictures switch 1 to the left or educational switch 11 to the right.

Place penguin in the centre of the paper, hold the paper in place or the movement of the unit will displace the paper.

Press the chest of the penguin and watch in wonder as the pictures appear. (The pictures take between 4 to 10 minutes each)

Like many of the reviewers I got it wrong on the first few attempts, but reading the instructions properly sorted the issues out. This item is well worth the cost.
