The TaDoodles Washable All-in-one paints are part of Crayola's Beginnings line. They are made to fit in the palm of a small child's hand. I bought these paints to do art projects with my 19 month old. The minimum recommended age from Crayola is 18 months. I think it should be a little older. To get the paint to come out, you have to push the brush down a few times. My daughter didn't get that yet. Also, as you can see by my pictures, my daughter kept grabbing the brush making a huge mess. These paints don't tip over or spill, which is great. But don't be fooled like I was that it won't still be messy. Luckily, the paints washed out pretty easily from clothes and off the kids. I do think these are great for small children, but I believe 18 months is a little young. I plan to put these cuties away for a few months and try them again when my daughter is less likely to shove them in her mouth.
