Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a beautifully produced book. It is definitely a step up from a typical "colouring" book of which we have many! The tough glossy thick board cover is really sturdy protecting the pages inside. The spiral binding is an excellent idea so that there isn't an irritating section between the pages which you can't reach/see properly. The paper on which each of the doodles is printed on is smooth so your pen/pencil will glide over, and quite thick, so you won't get colours bleeding from one page to the next if you decide to use felt pens.
This book will really get its owner thinking. For example, one page provides an outline drawing of a window, and you have to complete the picture to show what you might see outside on Christmas morning. There are plain mittens to decorate, Christmas wrapping paper to design, a Christmas table to be laid and so much more. You get the idea. This book will appear to those who are keen on drawing. My 7 year old who loves sketching couldn't wait to get stuck in. However, for those (like me) who panic at the sight of a blank page, the outlines on each page provide a starting point and inspiration. I do agree with an earlier reviewer that it is a shame that there are no doodles based on the nativity story itself which seems to have been overlooked in this collection and I've deducted a star for this reason.
This does cost more than a colouring book, but it would make a great present to give to a child who enjoys drawing over the age of about 5, once they are past the scribbling stage. My 6 and 7 year olds think it is great, and if you get this, and a packet of crayons, I suspect you'll find yourself with a quiet and contented child come Christmas morning. Oh, and it is quite good fun for adults too!

We bought this book for our 5 year old daughter who loves to draw. We did not give it to her yet, she'll only get it in December (to get into Christmas mood). However both my wife and I are sure she'll love it. It is simple yet challenging, quite funny, there are sections to draw, sections to colour, sections to write etc. The book is much bigger (both in size and contents) than we initially thought - that is a good thing. Overall a lovely book!

This is a lovely book packed with Christmas themed doodles and colouring in opportunities for children. It really is an absolute joy and not only keeps the children entertained but gets them (& me !) in the festive spirit (even if it is a bit early) - thoroughly recommended to keep those nippers entertained. Fantastic fun.

Starting from the very cover of 'Christmas Doodles', the distinctive seasonal title and bold, colourful images attract us to enter in. My nine year old cousin has found each page engaging, varied and pitched perfectly to her level of artistic ability. As someone with an active imagination and the skill to convey her pictorial message from scratch, she has nevertheless found the 'started off' format of the book interesting, stimulating and enjoyable. It provides a fun and inspirational way of encouraging children to explore their artistic talents, from writing your own letter to Santa to decorating gingerbread men. We look forward to discovering more picture books in the 'doodle on' range!

My 5 year old daughter and 10 year old son loved this product.

We spent a rainy Sunday with some colouring pens and got in the Xmas mood.

This is ideal I would say for a 6 to 8 year old but both of them really enjoyed it.

Note that this isn't wipe clean so once you have 'doodled' then the fun is up but there are loads of pages and for the money this is well worth it.

Strongly recommended, nicely made, good price and a great product.

Go for it!

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This clever and charming book is full of wintery and Christmassy images for children to complete and colour in.

A fireplace adorned with candles and ribbon awaits the addition of some stockings, a lonely child skating on a vast rink looks forward to the arrival of some playmates, reindeer gaze out from the page, imploring you to draw in their antlers, and (my favourite!) cute bunnies and cats in a frosty garden glance over their shoulders hoping to catch you scribbling their paw prints in the snow.

There are also cookies and cupcakes to 'ice', cards and tags that need 'decorating', and an advent calender to 'fill in'.

Hard cover, with spiral binding and thick, good quality paper. An affordable gift in its own right, or could form part of an art-themed set with the addition of some coloured pens or pencils.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm writing this in September, so with the last glow of summer still lingering it's a bit of a shock to be looking at a Christmasy book (even if the shops are filling with cards and advent calendars).

However, I thought it would be fun to review, and I enlisted my ten year old son to help out (it is a children's book, and my doodling is dreadful). He has tested it extensively and reports that the book is "brilliant".

"Doodle on: Christmas doodles" consists of a generous number of partially completed drawings, with suggestions for what to do - for example "Make this row of shops look festive". It a well made book, with a wire spiral binding and good hefty board covers, slightly smaller than A4 size. The themes capture a child's excitement at Christmas, and should provide a good few hours' entertainment in the school holidays. It runs on the to New Year, ending with fireworks.

On the whole, a fun book, probably to be given before Christmas rather than as a present, which will encourage children to get drawing.
