Jack enjoys colouring but as you’d expect from a toddler, whilst it brings plenty of fun, it can be a messy affair. Recently, he also took to drawing over the magnolia walls in the living room with crayons. Thankfully, we need not worry about that any more thanks to the TOMY Super Colour Deluxe Aquadoodle Mat.
It was sent to Jack for the purposes of review and I have to say, it has been a great success. We all love it. Plenty of learning and fun, yet, no mess, no ink and no stains – bonus!
The large Aquadoodle mat comes with 7 accessories; an easy grip pen, a water brush and pot, plus a pad and 3 stampers.
This set is really clever and perfect for clean and creative fun. Jack absolutely loves it and has enjoyed hours of fun using it already.
By filling the aqua pen with water, he can scribble away to his heart’s content. He is fascinated by the funky neon colours that appear as he runs the pen over the mat.
As you can see, I don’t have to worry about mess getting on to the carpet or on his clothing. He is able to crawl all over the mat as there is no ink involved.
Big thumbs up is that there is no stressful clear-up after use, you simply wait for it to dry.
The pen is great for writing or drawing with smaller strokes whilst the brush is ideal for broader strokes.
The stampers (musical note, bee and snail) work by pressing them onto the wet pad and then stamping them onto the mat.
The brush and water pot are definitely Jack’s favourite. At first he would try to pour the water onto the mat, but the beauty is that it doesn’t take long for the mat to dry before being able to start all over again.
The pot has a clever featured lip around the inside which helps to hold the water inside the pot if tipped up.
Something else that is great about the mat is that it doesn’t slide on the floor which means there will be no slips if little one decides to walk over it.
The mat folds away for easy storage and is great for entertaining the kids when on your travels.
I have been so impressed by this mat that I have bought two to give as Christmas presents for my friend’s children. I honestly cannot recommend it enough – get one!
