When they say washable they mean it! My daughter has managed to get green paint on my oriental rug, leather sofa and of course all over her clothes. Each time I just used a wet cloth and it all came up - even on the oriental rug!

First thing to know, these are very small two-ounce bottles. The price is right, but imagine how difficult it is to get the paint out of little tiny bottles. If they had a squeeze top, that'd help immmensely. But there's no clean or easy way to distribute the paint out of these containers.

I ended up using a tiny spoon to scoop out a glob of paint on to a paper plate. The colors are gorgeous, that's for sure! They also seemed to last a long time during play-thick enough not to spread but thin enough to be used extensively. My son had alot of fun, and the final product had a bit of texture to it that made it look nice framed (yes, I framed it...it looked like modern abstract art).

As far as the reviewer who complained about the staining on a white shirt...even with washable paints there's a chance that the paint won't come out all the way. It warns you of this on the label. Obviously, if something is of value, you're not going to have your kid paint in it. I just put one of my husband's old shirts over my son's shirt and that works fine as a smock. If he's wearing something really nice, I remove it and the risk entirely.

The paint washes off hands and brushes very easily.

This is the second time I have purchased these paints. The first time I bought the six pack but I like the extra four colors (turquoise, white, brown and magenta) that come in this ten pack. The bottles are small (2 oz. each) but I find that the paints last a long time! Each time my boys paint I take a plate and squirt out about a 1/2 - 1 tbsp. of paint of each color and they go to town.

My boys are 2 and 4 and I don't worry with these paints. I let them paint on card stock (printer paper is okay too but I prefer thicker paper) on the kitchen table and if they spill it washes up easily (even if I don't wash it until later that day). Also I had a chance to test out the washable part with fabric this week! My four year old got it all over his long sleeves (of course they were white) and on his swim shirt (rash guard) and all of the paint came out. I was surprised that the red and purple came out of the white long sleeves just because I didn't notice it until a little bit later that day. Just remember to follow the directions: wash in HOT water with NO stain way or pre-spotter. I ran them both under the hot water and scrubbed them a little and all but a little bit came out. Then I threw them in the wash on HOT and wa-lah, clean clothes.

I love these paints and they are well worth the price. :) If you want bigger bottles try the Crayola 4ct Washable Fingerpaints Primary or Crayola 4ct Washable Fingerpaints Secondary. They look great too!

I bought these paints for use with the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Easel & Companion Supply Set Bundle. They work just fine with the Melissa and Doug paper rolls, and my only criticism is that these little bottles don't last very long, or are at least not the ideal choice for a toddler who is using big brushes. Each little container might last at most three painting sessions, depending on if you use the paint "full strength" or watered down, and how much you pour into the plastic containers. Unless your child is using smaller brushes or you are unconcerned with how long the little bottles will last, I would recommend purchasing the much larger Blue Poster Paint Bottle and the other colors. These are also washable and 11.2 oz. each, whereas the Crayola paints are 2 oz. each.

Incidentally, I found that both the Crayola and Melissa & Doug paints wash out of clothes just fine as long as you do the following:

1. Run hot water over the stained area of clothing as soon as possible after your child's painting session in order to remove as much paint as possible.
2. Spray a pre-wash stain remover (i.e. Spray 'N Wash) on what's left of the paint stains immediately, rub the stain remover into the spot(s) and let soak in for at least an hour before washing.
3. If at all possible, wash the clothes immediately in hot water (if it won't ruin the fabric), after the stain remover has soaked in.

No guarantees for what I wrote above, but that process worked for me.

All in all, good fun - my son has a blast using these paints.

Nice variety of colors but kids will go through the small bottles very quickly. The smell is so strong and offense, it actually gave both my husband & I headaches. And he's not usually one to be bothered by things like that. It also made me somewhat nauseous too. I say pass on these and go for larger 16oz bottles of tempura paint which is just as colorful, washable and has no smell. And at about $2.50 to $3.00 at discount school supply, it's a better value too.

This paint is thick. My grandson's easel is next to a big white wall, and he's slapping this paint onto the paper with his big paint brush. It doesn't splatter. It washes right off his hands. If they have to paint, this is the paint to use.

I have a 2.5 yo who LOVES to paint. To keep the mess to a minimum we paint nearly every day in the bathtub. What I liked about these are the colors and the variety. And they are very, very washable. They instantly clean off skin and our (sucky) bathfitters tub better than the squeezable tube crayola paints which have no smell but require a LOT of scrubbing (especially the red) BUT the good ends there. These STINK! After using the squeeze ones, I was shocked how much and how strongly these smell.

These smell like acrylic paints or a poorly ventilated nail salon. Even my husband (who has a masters in art so he knows paint) asked when he first smelled these if I'd made a mistake and given her HIS paints. And he had to come in the bathroom to take over for me because they smelled so strong they caused me to have an asthma attack!

So since we use these in a confined space (bathroom) where we can't guarantee a great cross-breeze, we gave these away after the first time to a friend who does store window decorations. His response? Thanks, but, wow do those SMELL STRONG!

I can't believe they are non-toxic! Or safe for a little one with little lungs to breathe in. Or have on their skin! Or mouth! They rinsed right down and we will not use these ever again. I cannot take the risk of another asthma attack.

BTW my friend said they have no smell when dry.

This ruined 2 pairs of my girls pants, lucky they had no shirts on. I tried washing multiple time and even washed them right away after they finished painting and now the pants are stained with paint.

I would not allow children to wear any good clothing with these paints, however, it is a great pool companion. My daughter paints herself, her friends and the dog and then they all go for a swim. It has not been a problem and I would agree it would cause a problem with laundering the clothes. I wouldn't even want to put it in with the other laundry as it could ruin your entire load, however, people expect too much for 6 bucks. I'm sure it would cost much more to manufacture something that comes out of all clothing. We were able to get a good 10 uses out of the paint before, of course, purple ran out and then the rest of the colors. My friend had a pack with 10 colors, but I have not been able to find it. Anyone know where it is? Oh, I would buy the thinner brushes, this way the paints last longer.

As there is nothing "washable" about these paints. I just bleached a white outfit that has red splotches all over it from them, to no avail. It's ruined. Be very careful not to get this on clothing or have your children wear old clothes when painting.
