Product Review !


First impression: Anything that says it’s ” Great Fun! No Mess” is full of it. but we’ll see. I did notice a remark on the side of the box that says ” Easy Clean up” then another that says ” Color can leave stains rinse immediately with warm water.” hmmmm.

So here we go I have a washcloth with warm water ready, a table cloth protecting my ikea table, and my son who isn’t even 2 even though the package says 3+. I’m watching him carefully especially his mouth which often finds it’s way to all sorts of art supplies!

What I liked:

  • The price, well under 10 dollars for a pack of 4.
  • The colors are vivid
  • Not very messy
  • Not made in China ( South Africa)

What I didn’t like:

  • They don’t roll on very consistently, so you get darker spots and little pools of paint.
  • Hard to use as anything other than free art/ abstract .
  • My son didn’t put it in his mouth, shocking!

What my son liked:

  • The colors

What my son didn’t :

  • You can see in this picture that he has the bottle at the wrong angle, I know that the age is 3+ but wanted to mention that this can be frustrating for young kids .
  • It took a long time for the picture to dry so I wouldn’t let him touch it until it was dry and he was not pleased. The stain warning on the box had me a little worried.

Over all I think these make a fun add on to your art supplies but are by no means a must have and I would probably reserve them for older kids.

    Are they similar to bingo dabbers? My mom used to buy those for art projects when I was a kid. They were dirt cheap and fun.

    Thanks for reviewing! I have seen these in the store and wondered about them. I think I’ll wait on them now too until my son is a little older. We did purchase the Do-A-Dot daubers at your suggestion and (just turned) 2 yr old LOVES them! Thanks for sharing all your ideas!

    They are similar to the daubers in concept but the daubers you can draw pretty well with these are much more erratic.

    I am so happy your son likes the daubers!
