Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I think this is a good kit overall for a child who already knows the very basics of knitting and is ready to make a few projects. I think it will fall short on actually teaching a child to knit since the instructions on that are just not that clear - kids would be better off watching some how to knit videos on youtube or having a very good and clear photo tutorial book that they can follow.

I'm used to using a slightly bigger pen tablet with my main computer but this one is ideal to use along with my laptop - since it is small and light it is very portable for taking along and using with the laptop on weekends and trips away from home.

It has the same good quality as the more expensive Wacom tablets but the main difference is that this has only a tiny area that you can write/draw on which makes it OK for more occasional use with using the stylus to write or draw but not ideal if you want something for doing a lot of graphic work or anything detailed etc. If you're used to using a bigger pen tablet then you may find this a bit of an adjustment in terms of sizing but… Read more
