T27331 - Water Wow! Mess Free Color With Water Activity Kit
Was great at first but...
So I got my son this and the AquaDoodle for Christmas. It has been 2 days now and some of his images havent faded back to all white. I think we got defective cards.... But they AquaDoodle where that problem doesnt exist.
This is a GREAT set to have for grandchildren!
Four years ago, we purchased this set for when our grandchildren are visiting. They love it! They can paint with water to their hearts' content. It's educational and fun, too! When it dries, it's like new all over again (what a bargain!
We keep a wicker basket with their toys just ready for them, and this is always the first toy taken out. It really helps them with colors, shapes, letters, numbers, and helps them use their imaginations. Another winner from QVC!
not worth the money
I bought 4 of these water wows, 2 for my kids and two as gifts. With in the first few uses card board rolled up and the paint brushes scratched the white of the boards. I replaced the paintbrushes with an Aqua Doodle pen. (Don't have to squeeze it and it does not scratch of the white.) The little board that go one the clip are torn because all the little boards have to be separated and completely dry before you can put them all together, or they stick together and then tear while trying to seperate. I would save your money and by the aqua doodle.
My 3 Year Old Love This
I got this product last year for my son and he just tearned three. I am getting him another one to use. Either he lost or tried to paint with chocolate milk. This is a great product and is great to build confidence and learning to find the hidden pictures.
I agree that the box is boring, but I don't care about that. I think the selection of cards are great and the idea is great. We love Aquadoodle and thought this would be a great addition to that family. I think my biggest complaint is that the boards all curl up after being wet even just once or twice. I agree that the white covering does scratch off easily also. The pens need to be used gently. They will wear fast, unlike Aquadoodle. The clip board doesn't hold anything at all, like others have said. But all in all, my 3 year old just thinks it's the greatest thing ever. She doesn't notice that the boards curl or that the white is scratched. None of it matters to her. She loves it and uses it all day.
The Jury's Still Out on This One....
I really hope that the positive reviews are true for me, also! When I first saw the set in the plain cardboard box, I was not impressed at all, and thought I had wasted my money. I will have to purchase another container of some kind to put the pieces in to make it appealing for a Christmas gift for my three-year-old grandson. So, I'm still waiting to be impressed, and hopeful he will enjoy the kit as other children have!
My Grandkids love to "paint" with the brushes, however, the brushes really didn't hold up, but the kids still use the Activity Kit every time they come over to see Grandma. It keeps them entertained longer than a lot of other activity products.
No Mess Fun Time
I bought this for my grandson for his third birthday, He's now four and a half and still loves to spend time painting. I can let him use this while he is not in eyesight and don't have to worry about colored paint over everything. This is one of his special things to do when he comes to play at Gigi's house.
Great to keep them entertained
Purchased this set long ago, and it has withstood many outings and kept my son interested and occupied. Great at restaurants and many other places. Very portable. We actually prefer to use an Aquadoodle pen over the included pens, however. That addition really works well with the rest of the set!
I'm a Babysitter
As a babysitter for 10 years and a grandma for 2, I'm always searching for fun, easy, attention keeping activities!!
I think this has to rate as the #1 played with toy I have right now.
For all of those complaining about the packaging - you're worrying about the wrong thing! The packaging is torn off in no time and in most cases with toys (and because of toy overload) ITS ALSO forgotten in no time! This is pulled out every day in my house. You can ask the parents 6 mos. after you give the gift how they like it, and I bet you get a great response.
Let me tell you, yes, after a while the bristles do come off and the pages curl up! My kids don't care!!! They're still playing with them. I keep them in an old purse, and I just throw all of the cards back in at the end of the day. Couldn't be easier.
Take my word: KIDS LOVE THESE!!!
Great product, ordering more
My daughter loves her Water WOW set. We use it at home, and I am ordering another set to keep in our travel bag.
Would NOT Buy Again
We have the Aquadoodle brand and my 4 y/o son loves it so when I saw this I thought it was really cool and has ton of different pieces. However, I was very disappointed with every aspect. The water pens have a fiberoptic like tip that broke off within a few days. They can still be used however you have to squeeze harder and it makes them leak.
I was excited for the smaller cards that connect together to throw in my purse for when we dine out, etc. But I found the white covering scratches off VERY easy.
I would not recommend this product at all. I was highly disappointed!
