The only drawback I find as a mom is that the paint refills are expensive and difficult to find. Do not pay the 16-18$ they charge on Amazon as they should be 4-5$. I bought our paint refills at Walmart for 5.99 but I just looked online and they are not available online. They are usually with the Crayola art section there - not with the toys. The Crayola Store online has the paint refills 2 for 8.99 (but with 6.99 for shipping the paint is the same price as the refills offered on Amazon). I guess I just have a hard time paying the same price for paint refills as the initial toy!
A technical point - Make sure you clean the gel paint off the brush after each use like any paintbrush as the brush will not work (will not read the colors) if there is too much gel paint dried on the end. If the gel paint does dry on the brush just wrap a warm dishtowel around the tip and it will come off.
All said this toy is a worthwhile purchase if you can stomach the refill prices. I would not buy this unless you are willing to order a refill set now though because your kids will go thru the paint quickly and the toy is useless without the refill. If you have last years model though just go buy metallic paper and you will have the same thing! Happy painting.....
We had problems getting this toy to work at all initially - assumed it had an electrical short but finally got the brush to start lighting up. Several days later my daughter went to play with it and no light again. I assumed it was just a defective wire, but before giving up completely we tried changing the batteries even though it had only previously been on about 2 minutes. It started working! As soon as my daughter stopped painting, I turned the switch to off but the brush stayed lit up. I tried the off and on switch several times but the light worked in either position. This explained the need for new batteries, so now we have to store it with the batteries out which requires removing two screws and a panel. The way the battery compartment is made it won't hold the batteries in without the panel screwed on - this is a major pain.
2. How it really works
The paint is the same as the color wonder mess free fingerpaints (which I reccomend over this product). Each paint, just like color wonder markers, is made to turn a specific color on the special paper. When you hold the brush (attached to a short elecrtical cord) over a specific pot of paint the brush tip lights up the color the paint will turn when it's on the paper. The paint pots are all hooked together and have to be inserted a certain way (this is how the brush knows which one it's hovering over).
3. Fun factor
It's really neat to see your brush glow the different colors!
4. Painting functionality
It's a big rough bristly brush. NO fine detail can be painted. Best for my 3 yr old who just smears paint on, not so good for my 7yr old that we bought it for.
