The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars instead of 1 is because it inspired me. It was a cute gift from my mom, but the paint colors are AWFUL. The brush it comes with is WAY too stiff. The stencils pictured on the box are not the ones it comes with. They could've used the book to SHOW designs rather than name ideas, but they didn't. I agree with the first poster. Go out and buy your own body paints and brushes and do it yourself. There is no white or black!? How can you mix pink?? Lavendar?? Soft pastel colors?? Come on makers... put some effort into your product.

This "kit" was a complete waste of money. The book included is completely ridiculous, and really doesn't offer *any* great ideas that a group of women couldn't come up with on their own (for example, their list of themes includes "America," "Baby's Name," "Curtains" (what?), and "Emoticons"). In addition, the four colors of paint (blue, green, yellow, red) do not allow for a great deal of creativity, not to mention the fact that the paint was so dry that it was essentially impossible to use. I'm glad I purchased additional body paint (white, black, and gold) from a costume shop; without it, we wouldn't have been able to do this project. The stencils were also pretty pointless; they are made of hard plastic, which would be difficult to contour to a pregnant belly if you decided to use one. We came up with our own design (Tree of Life) and it turned out much more beautiful than any of their samples. Bottom line: Don't waste your money!!! Go buy some body paint at a costume shop and come up with your own idea!

This book provides fun and creative ideas on turning a pregnant belly into your own creative canvas. Who knew being pregnant could be so much fun? This book would make a great gift!
