Disclosure: I was sent a Magic Sketch to review and give my honest opinion no compensation was received.
As for the So I got the opportunity to play with the Magic Sketch today while the kids were at school. And after testing it out I think this is a perfect fit to my Holiday Gift guide. Why you ask? In order to make it on my Holiday Gift guide an item has to be something that is worth the money, of high quality and something that will be enjoyed by the person it's intended.
I want to first give you a description of the Magic Sketch. The Magic Sketch is a rainbow colored liquid crystal sketch pad about the size of a kindle or a little bigger than a typical paperback book. And it's thin, so thin and light that it will be a great travel companion that can go in any diaperbag or backpack. The screen is rainbow colored so with every sketch you get a unique arrangement of colors. The see through liquid crystal screen allows your kid to trace through it without the mess of an ink pen.
For the first point is it worth the money? Yes, at 29.95 it's well within the proper price point for it's quality and it's definitely offers more so than it's comparable item. The only item I could compare this one to would be a traditional magnetic sketch pad which range from about 10-20$ depending on size. This being a liquid crystal screen that clears off so easily is definitely worth the slightly higher cost.
As for the quality I think this is a great item just from my time playing with it on the sly I know my daughter and son are literally going to fight over it. However, luckily for me at 29.95 I can afford to make sure each one has one under the tree and with aide of a label-maker to ensure each one is labelled I can at least attempt to prevent a fight or two.
And finally for the enjoyment by the person the gift is intended for my kids are artistic, they will spend hours drawing or coloring every day. That being said we have gone through a ton of paper in the progress, so when given the opportunity to try out a new coloring tablet. The Magic Sketch with it's liquid crystal screen allows for the kids to color to their hearts content and erase with the touch of a button.
My overall opinion on the Magic Sketch is it's a great addition to any kids art/toy arsenal and will be a happy travel companion for as long as we can foresee.
