This is what you get:
* Instant Artist ('game')
* uDraw tablet
Let's take a look at the tablet first:
1. It is well made, feels robust, and is an inconspicuous black so it wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb... I was hoping we wouldn't get garish white peripherals, and I was happy.
2. It takes 3 AA batteries, which can be a pain as 2 would be better. The 'cavity' that's created when you put in the 3 batteries means there's somewhere to stow the USB dongle - not such a bad design after all.
3. I first tried Kodak batteries, you know, the ones you get from Poundland - 12 batteries for a quid. The tablet struggles to stay connected. Then I put in some Duracells - problem solved, and the tablet just keeps going. I haven't tried rechargeables yet, but will update if I do.
Next, the 'game' itself:
1. There are some mini games:
* Alien splat, where you have to use the stylus to 'splat' aliens on the screen.
* Tilt, where you have to tilt the tablet as though you're guiding a metal ball around a maze.
2. Plenty of drawing modes, but crucially there is a drawing tutor (his name is Remmy). The first thing I learned to do was draw a tomato. It taught me how to look at a tomato, and then compose all the elements to make it look like a 2D tomato, and then the final elements to make it look like a 3D tomato. All of it made sense, and I can only guess that trying it out with pencil & paper would yield the same favourable results.

It was very easy to set up and very simple to use, the only thing i would mark it down on is the fact it takes 3 AA batteries, i would have preferred it to be chargeable but the batteries lasted a long time so not as bad as I expected.
The instant artist game it comes with is fantastic and has everything you need get started, it had much more than I thought it would.
I also want to say what a great price it is here on amazon, it's almost half the price I have seen it anywhere else, at £35 or there abouts it's an absolute steal !
It takes around an hour of use before you start to get the technique of using this right.
The pen which is attached to the tablet can be quite constrictive at times as there isn't much length to stretch it around the tablet.
The next thing you have to get used to is finding the right pressure to apply the pen to the tablet.
This is something you can only figure out yourself but take it from me, it's very glitchy.
You will often find yourself heavily clicking on the place you want to draw on a number of times before anything appears on screen.
For something like drawing, colouring or shading, the lack of fluid movement around the tablet/screen is a major issue.
The software included, Instant Artist is very bleak as well. It offers very little in terms of interaction.
The tutorials are stale and very basic and it really fails to encourage you to stay with the game and play for hours.
I haven't used the thing since the day I received it and I am tempted to put it in the bin because I really don't see myself taking it out to play it again.
Despite how cheap it is, I would really suggest that you save your money. It's widely stated that this was a massive failure for THQ and one can clearly see why when using the UDraw Tablet.
I was pleasantly surprised, this is one of the presents that got most use out of pretty much everything. Comes with one game wgich is mainly colouring in and drawing, i've not had much of a play with it my self but our 5 year old girl has spent hours on it.
It's also took quite a bit of hammer from her tantrums when the coloring in doesn't go to plan, its also been dropped down the stairs but it seems to keep on working.
There is a nice selection of mini games, with more in-depth instructional activities to progress to if you want. Graphics are not amazing but not the worst either and the sound certainly won't grate even though it is entirely forgettable.
This isn't the most engaging game I have ever bought - if you could call it a game - but it is something different. If you can master the rather frustrating tablet then could turn out to be quite relaxing.
