Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The item certainly promotes creativity. The songs are at turns lively and soothing and the colors are bright and cheerful. It is somewhat hypnotic–even relaxing–to press down on the gel. The tablet is lightweight and comfortable to hold or sit upon your lap and the screen is very cool to the touch. The gel also has a textured quality to it that is fun to take a closer look at. Hence, this is an item that will likely entrance children for hours on end. Best of all, due to its moderate size and light weight, this is an excellent travel toy. It is also quite durable.
Great for tactile artists. Light and sound displays keep your child focused. Durable design.
I like the colors and sound and most especially that there is an option of light with no sound!
A great sensory toy for toddlers, because it's mess-free and portable. With 12 lights and six songs, the sealed gel surface lets little ones doodle with their fingers without leaving a mess. It's perfect for ages 24 months and up.

What reviewers didn't like

This item requires three AA batteries to operate and these batteries are not included so the item is not ready to be played with right out of the box. The gel spreads easily, but you have to press down hard to see the colors shining through. Also, certain colors (like the dark blue) emit much better than others (like the pink). While it is fun to watch the gel spread, it can be hard to “clear” the board afterwards to the point that all traces of the past scribbles are gone. Moreover, since this item is useful as a travel toy, I wish it came with a little handle that would make it easier to carry around from one place to another.
Sounds may become annoying for children.
There are 5 well known nursery songs, and one odd ball that the internet has not been able to identify. Many complaints about leaking.
