Both of my children received this product as a gift for Christmas. We all love the Color Wonder products so it was no surprise that this was another favorite gift. This is a mess-free solution for your little artists. The paint is a clear gel that only colors on the special Color Wonder Paper. You can put this paint on your table, carpet or clothes and it is just a clear gel that washes off. The color stays on the paper. The Magic Light Brush has clear bristles that are lit up when the brush tip is over the paint pots to show what color the clear paint will be on the paper. My five year old daughter loves it and has already used up all of the purple. I love that the main piece has a clip to hold the paint brush in place when storing and a clip to hold the paper pad still while they paint. The paint pots snap into place so they don't go all over the place. This thing holds everything in place because we know the kids won't stay in place. It comes with the main holder and attached brush, 6 paint pots, and a 30 page pad of color wonder paper. There is also another set of paints sold separately in tropical colors for a total of 12 paint colors available. It requires 3 "AA" batteries to light the brush. The brush tip easily removes for cleaning. It is recommended for children 5 and up. This toy has kept my children entertained for hours already. I love to play with my children, but sometimes you need to get chores done and with this product I don't have to be right there watching to clean up any messes. I will definitely be buying refills and recommend this product to anyone with children.
