“ Brand: Tomy / Type: Drawing / Age: 3 Years+ „
Well when i saw this Toy i thought it would be great for my son .... I should have saved my money .
You are supposed to draw your pictures then bring them to life with lights etc , sounds good but is in fact disappointing .
you get 3 neon pens to use ( normal pens cannot be used ) on the bumpy scratchy feeling surface and you also get 2 stencils to draw animals and things which are not too bad actually.
once you have drawn you picture you shut the lid and then you can light up your picture , this i might add looks nothing like the pictures above , maybe its partly due to a 3 year olds drawing but i doubt it . Once its lit up you can then choose an array of disappointing patterns for the light to cycle through ie left to right , top to bottom or flashing and you can choose how fast it does it , it didn't even impress my 3 year old let alone me .
When you have finished illuminating your picture and want to wipe it off the fun really starts . you are provided with 2 pieces of material that are pre folded into squares , you are supposed to cut these squares then wrap them round a mouse shaped piece of polystyrene with a plastic cover then rub off the pen , you really have to scrub hard to get the pen off and when you have you are left with a board with an orange tinge not the white its supposed to be.
There are some good points about this toy you dont have to keep getting your child paper and erm .... no thats all i can think of.
Even at the half price i paid for this i still feel i have wasted my money .
Tomy usually produce good toys , and whilst the build quality of this seems up to their usual standards it doesnt live up to the expectations in the description .
The first drawing toy that lets you create your own masterpiece with bright neon pens and then, magically light up your image at the touch of a button. With the light up function you can then make your picture flash and blink, even speeding up and down.
