Advantages: FAIRLY CHEAP AND ROBUST
Disadvantages: BIT OF A "ONE TRICK PONY"
Once again another selection from the Argos book bought blindly by parents without knowing anything about it!! after relentless t.v advertising we finally succumbed to this for christmas for our 7yr old daughter.Bought for £10 at Amazon before christmas.
As usual with Crayola the box is pretty with lovely pictures of Daisy in action doing her thing and fairly good overview of the product just from looking at the box.
On opening you find Doodle Daisy a stencil hat and stampers which are her feet also some felt tips, these are Crayola supertips which are seemingly a different size from every other felt tip in the world meaning we have had to order them directly from Crayola at £2.50 for a pack of five quite expensive for what they are seeing as they are quite small.Daisy is quite big around eight inches across and needs two 'AAA' batteries that are not included.
The idea is to put the felt pens in Daisy's front legs which have holes in to put up to five pens in altogether and then turn the dial on the bottom to create different patterns, then all you do is put her on a piece of paper and touch her bottom which is the start button and away she goes.
Pretty noisy but quite amusing to watch as she goes round and round, bigger paper the better, we use wall paper on the floor.Effects are good for the most part but not perfect creating round patterns that are reminiscent of Spirograph, felt tips sometimes don't work fantastically but still daughter seems to like although I do agree with the first review that it is not exactly a favourite but does indeed fill a few minutes of boredom.
You can pull the legs of and add stamps to your creations or use Daisy's hat as a stencil to jazz up your patterns.But these are rarely used by my daughter.
I quite like the idea of this and once set up and using nice big pieces of paper on a flat floor it is not too bad, but my kids would rather do there own pattern making and Daisy does not see the light of day that often.You will never beat old fashioned colouring in!!
Summary: DON'T EXPECT THIS TO BE A MUST HAVE ITEM,BUT STILL QUITE GOOD.
