Toby first had an Aquadoodle not long after his first birthday and it’s not something he was never really interested in for more than ten minutes. However, he’s now three and Teddy is approaching 18 months and their interest is held for much longer!
I have to admit.I’m not a crafty, creative mum who lets her kids stick stuff to the walls and lets them get glue, glitter and sand everywhere without not worrying about it. I’d much rather have their ‘mess’ contained or, at least, manageable. So the Aquadoodle has made a fresh appearance with their new Super Colour Deluxe mat courtesy of Come Round.
What’s Included In The Super Colour Deluxe Aquadoodle?
This time there’s a mat, which says is slightly bigger than the older version we have. There’s a water pad to press the stamps onto before printing them on the Aquadoodle mat. There’s also a ‘paint brush’ and a well to dip it into as well as one Aquadoodle pen. These are all included inside the box as standard.
Personally I love the addition of the stamps and the paint brush as our original one didn’t have these and I think it’s great for them to explore different ways of mark making.
How Does The Aquadoodle Work?
For those of you that don’t know the Aquadoodle mats are absolutely no mess at all. You simply use the tools which are filled with water to make marks on the mat and these then show up either in colour or in a blue hue on some of the original mats. On this one they obviously come up in rainbow neon colours which is really, really cool!
It’s a way for kids to get creative indoors without creating loads of mess for you to clean up. Once the water evaporates from the mat, it simply goes back to being plain and you can use it all over again. It’s great!
The new Super Colour Deluxe is just as good as the other Aquadoodles we’ve been lucky enough to come across, but I feel the rainbow colours in this one just give it that extra little thing above the rest. Toby and Teddy were engaged with this mat for at least an hour making lots of different marks and it was good for pointing out lots of colours too. It’s a superb product and I particularly like that it’s chemical free, otherwise Ted sucking the water out of everything would be a bad idea – haha!
The only thing I would suggest is that you don’t totally saturate it with water, otherwise you’ll end up hanging it over the radiator like I have in the last couple of days just to get it dry again! And I think as a stroke of colourful luck, one of my readers will be winning their very own Aquadoodle Super Colour Deluxe and all you have to do is enter below!
