Children love to draw, and the Megasketcher from Tomy is a fun, clean, and tidy variation on the traditional pencils and paper. The Megasketcher measures roughly 45 x 30 cm (18 x 12 inches), with the magnetised 'screen' taking up most of the surface area. A magic 'pen' (attached by a piece of string to avoid losing it under the sofa) allows children to draw, scribble, and write, while the four magnetised stamps add a different dimension to youngsters' designs. Once a composition is complete, or if one too many mistakes have been made, simply pull the eraser lever up and down and it wipes away the redundant drawings. This kind of drawing aid has become a firm favourite, thanks mainly to its ability to be used over and over again no matter how many mistakes are made. The Megasketcher is a fun, practical way of developing artistic awareness, creativity, and fine and gross motor skills in children, and is perfect for long car journeys or rainy afternoons. Suitable for children aged 3 years and over.

I found the telephone number for Tomy and when I called I was told that it wasn't broken, the automated ones were costing too much to make and therefore they had changed them. This is a rip off as the quality is not as good as the previous ones (the screen is not as tough as if they press a bit hard you can see the words they have written scratched on the plastic and they don't rub out as well as they used to) and they no longer have the automatic return and yet they have not got any cheaper - yes there are discounts about but they are around the same price as they have been for the last five years taking inflation into account and there is nothing on any of the product details to say they have changed them.
I will not be buying any more megasketchers, I will be trying other models instead - I have purchased about ten in the last three years and previously thought they were great.....
Hope this is helpful to anyone looking to buy one.
Edit: April 2012. Well I am sad to say our original megasketcher finally broke. When you clear the screen you pull down the blue slider which is attached to a strip of plastic underneath. The strip of plastic needs to move freely down and up, but children have a tendency to put a hand on the screen as they pull the slider which, in our case, resulted in the strip of plastic snapping off rendering the whole thing useless. Since it was a much loved toy, I bought another exactly the same and I am really glad I did as if anything it gets used even more than the first one.
My son has recently started learning to write a few words and the megasketcher has been fantastic. We have saved countless sheets of paper and my son gets to practice writing as much as he likes and there are no pens left lying around for his baby sister to find and cause havoc with!

Excellent sketcher for the price. The "ink" can be removed by swiping SLOWLY - it is important to move this gradually so that all the impression is removed. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Mr. Stephen Duff
Bought two of these, one for each of the my children. They love it and even after a couple of years of moderate to heavy use the sketchers are in near perfect condition.Published 8 days ago by Jay
