Crayola review and 24 hour giveaway!

A few weeks ago I had the chance to review a really cool box of nice Crayola products, thanks to My Blog Spark! They sent three of their newest products, all items that we have wanted to try.
When the box came I had the kids pick one of the items out to donate to Toys for Tots. They chose the The Crayola Beginnings Color Me A Song This portable drawing and music creation station features a pressure-sensitive board that matches a melody to the artist’s pace. Draw fast, and the tempo picks up. Slow down, and so does the music. Four instrument buttons let kids pick their favorite sound. Color Me a Song was named a “Toy of the Year” by FamilyFun magazine and one of American Baby magazine’s picks for “Best Toys of the Year.” For children 24 months and up; suggested retail price is $24.99.
Right away they ripped into the Crayola Glow Dome which they had seen at the store and were begging for anyway! The colors and rotating action are neat, different, and the kids like the new-ness of writing on something clear. They all played with the Dome unsupervised for almost an hour. Winner in my book!
This last one was really interesting… The Crayola Glow Station was the neatest in my book, the technology was very cool. Using a light wand, children can either draw freehand or use stencils and texture sheets to create more realistic drawings. A diamond-shaped tip can be snapped on the end of the light wand for stamping unique starburst designs on the canvas. Drawings magically disappear over time, or can be “erased” by turning on the lights, so kids can create again and again for limitless fun. For children ages six and up; suggested retail price is $29.99.
Personally, I think these would make really nice Christmas presents. I would so much rather have the kids get toys that stimulate their imagination than mindless cheap toys that I toss in a month!
Crayola and My Blog Spark have offered to give one of my readers a Glow Dome!
To win your very own Crayola Glow Dome, leave a comment telling us what your favorite Crayola color is!
Mine is either Burnt Sienna or Cerise…

Giveaway ends Saturday morning at 10am!

  14. Laurie C. Says:

    I love Crayola crayons. I really do find them to be superior in quality to the other brands, and get them even if I could get another brand for less. (Did I just admit that I spend more than I "have" to on a product??? Gasp! Don't tell my husband! (: )I don't know what my favorite would be, but I do like Burnt Sienna. I also love the way that they're always coming out with "new" colors.
