WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I like all the cool stencils and designs, and that it is so easy to set up. I also like that you can easily control it and the way it sprays out. I wish there were more coloured markers and more stencils.
I like the craft because it's sprays and makes cool pictures. It's easy to use and the stencils and letters make awesome decorations.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
My kids, ages 4, 6 and 8, all love this toy! They love how it is so easy to control the spray. They have really had a great time with it. My 8 year old made a few birthday cards with it and loves to show off the sprayer to his friends. Everyone seems to enjoy it. The excitement really lasted longer than I expected. It is very simple to use, even my 4 year old can use it easily by herself. And, it's exciting for my kids that it sprays the marker ink in a fun sort of way. They love using the stencils. Compact and super easy to use, it comes with a plug, which is great. It is sooooo much better than the older version of the crayola sprayer (which broke very quickly and never worked well in the first place). Although they definitely don't use it as much as they did during the first week, they still do take it out as often (or perhaps more often) than their other favourite craft activities. The average play session is quite short nowadays. I think now, they just use it for a specific purpose (eg. to spray something on a card); whereas, initially, it was a full activity in and of itself.
It's very easy to use - just plug and spray! The stencils that it comes with helps create neat designs - the stencils have different pictures and all letters so they can make cool pictures of their names. The instructions were short and clear for both myself and Ezra (M9), and the quality is good - I like that you can use any marker, as the markers will definitely need replacing as the kids use them. This also means that you can use all different colours! I thought Ezra (M9) would play with it more. He's not so into crafts, but I thought this would appeal to him since he can use the stencils and create neat designs, but It didn't hold his interest for more than one or two sessions. A neat gadget for art, but very expensive for what it can do.
