My hubby and I have been taking more weekend trips out to the beach house with our little girl. We try to pack as light as possible, which is an oxymoron when you have a toddler, but there are a few favorites that go with us on every trip. Items we take with us have 2 requirements: #1 – does not include too many pieces and #2- must be mess free. When we go to the beach house, the last thing I want to do is clean up MORE mess! My little girl loves to draw and paint, but unfortunately paints are messy and do not transport easy. The idea of creating fun images with just a little water is a dream come true for most on the go moms!
Our her new favorite toy is the Aquadoodle Buddy for the car ride. With just a little water, the belly of her penguin transforms into her own artwork with the included water pen. The best part is, once the water dries, the markings disappear and it can be reused over and over! I highly recommend this for car rides or events where you feel your child needs some mess free entertainment (let’s say, a wedding or special event).
The Aquadoodle Classic Mat is another great item from the Aquadoodle line. I purchased a large picnic table for play dates and the Aquadoodle mat takes up the entire table. This is a great feature if you have more than one child doodling on the mat – because it is so large they can each have their own area. The mat folds up for easy travel/storage.
What more can you ask for in a toy? It is mess free, easy to use, and a lot of fun to play with! Guess what all the children in my family are getting for the holidays this year? I think this is a toy that everyone in the family can enjoy!
Both items from Aquadoodle are recommended for ages 2 and up, but is great for any child that is able to hold a marker on their own. Both items will be available August 2011.
