I bought two of these for two eight year old little girls at my wedding. It worked in keeping them entertained at the table, although I don't think they reached the page with speech bingo until too late! It's a good product to occupy kids for a bit, although I don't think it's suitable for anyone younger than five or six, my one year old nephew joined in with some colouring too when he saw the "big girls" doing theirs. It is quite small (A5 and quite slim) so will fit into a handbag if necessary. There are a range of drawing activities and a few games that can be played unobtrusively although an adult may need to do some explaining. Very good, but take a few other bits for them to play with too.
