Doodle, Draw & Sketch with Magic Sketch - Review

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

If your child likes to draw, doodle or sketch, there's an 'As Seen on TV' product that would make a great Christmas gift - Magic Sketch.

Don't roll your eyes just yet!  I know some 'As Seen on TV' items aren't worth their weight in gold.  But, I gotta say, the Magic Sketch seems to be worthy.

Magic Sketch is a drawing/art tablet with a flexible, LCD screen that is transparent, allowing kids to trace with the provided stencils or from their own images.  Magic Sketch is from the makers of the hit product Boogie Board who are also the leaders in crystal display technology.

Magic Sketch is designed to be kid-proof, meaning it will withstand some water and take a beating.   With the advanced internal electronics, you can clear the screen with just the push of a button.  There's also a free app that allows you to save, edit, and share your child's work.  I haven't personally tried the app but the tablet itself is entertaining.

Each Magic Sketch retails for $29.95 and includes:
•      Magic Sketch
•      Protector Guard
•      1 Roller
•      3 Stamps
•      20 Learning Stencils
•      20 Games Stencils
•      20 Art Stencils

When your child writes or draws on the Magic Sketch, it will show up in rainbow colors.  It's so easy to erase images when you're done because it just takes the push of a button.  The roller, stamps, and stylus are fun additions when creating designs.  What I like best about the whole thing are the stencils.  To me, they are more like cards than stencils but that's neither here nor there.  Kids can play games, learn math, trace pictures and more by using them with the Magic Sketch.  It brings a fun aspect to learning and creativity.

Magic Sketch requires batteries but they are included and it's claimed that they will last seven years.  The Magic Sketch is a fun tablet in and of itself and I'd recommend it for a kid.  The only downside is that I wish there was a carrying case for it.  Since there's so many pieces, it'd be nice to have them all in one designated place.

I remember how popular these were back in the day, but they look much nicer now!
