Crayola My First Crayola Touch Lites Color Pad

This interactive unit features a touch pad drawing surface and a triangular stylus designed for little fingers. The pad's soft gel surface simulates finger-painting without the mess of real paint. Toddlers will enjoy discovering new sounds as they draw and doodle on the touch pad with 12 colored lights, each accompanied with a unique musical tune. Designed for kids 24 months and up, My First Crayola Touch Lights requires three AA batteries (not included).
Soft Gel Surface for Mess-Free Fingerpainting
Introduce kids to the joys of creative play with My First Crayola Touch Lights. Kids can use their fingers to draw on the touchpad's soft, reusable surface. It has the feel of fingerpainting but without the messy drips and cleanup. As kids place their fingers directly on the pad, they activate the colored lights and create squiggles, doodles, and free-form shapes. A bright yellow selector button allows kids to choose from 12 color and sound themes.
Toddlers can practice controlled drawing or writing by using the included stylus. Its triangular shape helps put little fingers in the proper writing grip. Convenient, built-in storage keeps the stylus ready for the next creative session.
Shake It Up with Sound
Incorporate sound with lighted drawing for a multisensory experience. Each of the twelve colors kids can select with the yellow selector button has a corresponding musical tune that plays as kids scribble. Sounds can be muted for quiet creative play.
Compact Design for Easy Travel
My First Crayola Touch Lights has a portable design so kids can play comfortably on floors or laps. Take the touchpad to Grandma's house, to restaurants, on the road, and more.

My toddler is almost 2 and loves to draw (scribble). She will sit with a pen or crayon for 45 minutes and draw on every page of a notebook. She likes using the stylus for a bit then goes back to using her hands. Her favorite part is the button that changes the color of the light. But, unlike drawing on paper, this toy only keeps her attention for 5-10 minutes. She goes back to it every day or so, but only for a few minutes. I plan to take it on day trips where I can't offer her pen and paper safely.
The gel surface does need to be worked a bit when you first get it, but it's a fun tactile experience. She enjoys the squish.
Colorful backlight is fun
Great for non-messy play
You can turn the useless, annoying, loud music off. (added 8/22)
Light appears to turn itself off after a while (rather than running down batteries) (added 8/22)
Stylus storage doesn't really work (hard for little hands to get it to stay where it should be)
Not very engaging for younger toddlers?
Batteries not included.
Useless, needless, annoying, loud music. (added 8/22)
Edited 8/22: I forgot about the music! I turned it off almost immediately and I'm hoping kiddo doesn't figure out how to turn it back on. Since the light eventually turns itself off (it's pretty dim anyway), I've found we don't really adjust the switch much anyway.
For starters, the selling point is that this is designed for small hands and it is also mentioned this is supposed to be "mess-free". Well, the size of the pad is just about perfect for a toddler, but it did feel just about right for my older kid (6)
How does this work? after installing three AA batteries (not included, so keep that in mind if you get this) you should be good to go. On the back of the pad there is an ON/OFF switch where you can select if you want color lights or color lights with music. Just to give you an idea we do not use the music at all, it is just too loud and there is no volume control to change that, also, like with any other similar toys, it gets repetitive and eventually, annoying.
The way this is built so it is mess-free, is that the pad is made of a dark blue gel covered by a thin plastic layer, so by using the included stylus you basically draw by removing the gel. This is very practical and clean but as you can imagine, frustrating: since the pad is made out of gel, it is practically impossible to draw without the figures deforming. Also, once you've used it, there is no easy way to restore the gel completely. You have to manually spread the gel, making all kinds of shapes with your hands in the process.
After watching my kids play with this for a while I came to the following conclusion: younger kids (1-2 years old) may feel drawn to the music and colors but not actually use it as intended. Older kids who could use it to actually draw things may end up frustrated because of the issues caused by the consistency of the gel on the screen.Read more ›

But my daughter doesn't like it, and it took me a few minutes to understand why - because she DOES like to draw with crayons. To her, it's a broken iPad. You know how LCD screens might swarm with color if you press down on them? That's not that different than what this does. So she tries to get it to do something. It doesn't, and there's not much else to it, so she moves on.
Some of the pictures are a bit inaccurate. You can't really draw with this. You can, but it won't really stick around. The gel immediately gets partially back where it was, and eventually it will settle and the picture is mostly gone.
So overall, I think my 1.5 year old daughter just expects it to do more. And when it doesn't she disengages. She plays pretend with her dolls. If she really wants to scribble, it's with a crayon.
I do think this pad might have a lot more appeal for a slightly older child (although the older child could use markers, etc) who might appreciate the nature of the gel.
Anyway, you should buy this. Because maybe your kid will like it, but if not, you may just become as addicted to it as I am. I love it.
