Should the MAGIC SKETCH Be On The Top Of Your Kids Christmas List This Year?

Christmas isn't that far away!  Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
Kids always want the latest and greatest gadgets for Christmas!  Electronic toys are all the rage, but what about toys that encourage your child to be creative too?  In our home we try to encourage the creative side of things!  Seeing our kids use their "brain power" instead of "video game" power is strongly encouraged & positively praised!  
With that being said, our kids always want the newest thing, especially the ones they see the most, advertised on TV during their favorite shows.

All products for this review/feature was sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about the products being featured!

When Magic Sketch contacted us to see if we'd like to do a review/feature, I was excited!  Sometimes these types of products don't really do as they claim to, so I love being able to tell other parents whether products are worth the cost to purchase for their kids.  Besides that, growing up, one of my favorite toys to play with, was the etch a sketch, so this definitely seemed interesting to me.
The Magic Sketch Deluxe Kit arrived in a box loaded full of things. 
 The see thru multi-color screen, protective case, a huge package (60 to be exact) of stencils for tracing and problem solving, 4 different stylus, 1 roller and three stamps.  
Our youngest got to try it out first.  
The durable water resistent screen is pretty cool because you can put your something behind it and basically trace over it with the stylus.  You can play tick-tac-toe on it.  You can practice spelling on it, solving match problems or just doodling on it.  
Best of all, all it takes is a touch of the button and the entire screen clears perfectly.
Our son enjoyed trying out the different stencils and stamps.  The stamps don't work as easily, you really have to press hard to get the imprint on the screen, but they do work.  He really loved the package of stencils...because they had cool patterns & pictures to trace and so many more activities as well.  This is definitely a product that could be use on a long car ride to entertained a stir crazy child.   Plus, it's basically mess free!  
Every parent loves products that are.

The girls got their turn to try it out and they loved it too (ages 10 and almost 13).  In fact, the oldest said that it's actually soothing to trace on it.  She liked the mutlicolored "rainbow" screen too.  The only thing that bothered her about it, is that, if you make a mistake and push the button, the entire screen clears!  
Our youngest daughter loved that she can practice writing her "countries" quiz answers on it, over and over again and there is no paper waste involved.  Plus we can never get enough games of tick-tac-toe in, when there is nothing else to do.

For $29.95 and shipping, I would say this is a product that not only my 8 year old, but 10 and 13 year olds enjoy as well.  It's something that would be ideal for homework practice, to take with you "on the go" (because it's mess free) or even a way to calm an upset child down (giving them something positive and calming to focus on).  Plus, it has a battery installed that is supposed to last up to 7 years and is easy to change when neede!

CLICK HERE to check out their website and perhaps you'll be ordering some Magic Sketch's for your home, your car (for in car entertainment) or even for presents for Christmas this year for your family!

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was not compensated in any but the product that was sent free of charge by the company for this review/feature!!
