Scratch Art , On the Go -Fairy Tales Color Reveal Pad (Melissa and Doug)-Toy Review


Scratch Art , on the Go Fairy Tales Color Reveal Pad


The other day I bought the Scratch Art toy by Melissa and Doug (M&D). This is my first time buying a Melissa and Doug toy. Of course I have seen hundreds of M&D toys, but I have never played with one, so this was the first time.


The M&D toys were on sale at Toys R US, so I bought 2 toys by M&D.

This toy comes with a wooden stylus, that’s cool.

There are 12 pages of pictures to “scratch”. When I first opened the toy, I didn’t read the instructions, so I simply scratched away. It was neat , seeing the color pop up magically.

This toy is like a scratch off lottery ticket. You see one thing unscratched, and another when you scratch it, that’s it.

BUTTTT, once I read the instructions, I realized that if you use the stylus in another way, you can create designs on the Scratch Pad. So instead of the princess having a pink skirt, you can give the fairy princess a polka dot dress, or put designs in the bushes, based on how you utilize the wooden stylus.


What a cool toy.


For $4, you can’t beat this. 12 pages of scratch art for $4- that’s a deal folks!!


Summary:

How will this toy do in Africa-this toy would be great to have in Africa.. all you need is this toy and the wooden stylus, or your finger nail if you don’t plan on customizing the scratch sheets. I like this toy because batteries are not needed, and anyone can play with this- boys and girl- literate and illiterate. Well, a blind person would not be able to see how this toy works, but for the most part, almost any kid can play with this and enjoy it.


My only concern with this is the flecks of color that come off the sheets when you scratch it.If you are traveling, like in an airport, where would you put the shavings? This toy can be a pain for those who would have to clean up the shavings.


Also, the toy has an interesting smell. It kind of smells like a box of crayons, but a little stronger.
