Aquadoodle Review and Giveaway #Aquadoodleparty

We have owned an Aquadoodle for several years now and it would definitely be included in our top five toddler toy recommendations. So when we were asked by Come Round UK to review the Aquadoodle Super Colour Deluxe from Tomy, we immediately jumped at the chance!

We have always loved our Aquadoodle because it is perfect for creative, yet mess free, toddler fun. There is no effort needed to set it up, just add water and you are ready to play. Also, compared to other creative activities, minimal supervision is required. The Aquadoodle can keep the Mini Reviewers quiet for ages and when playtime is over clearing up is a doddle! The mat dries very quickly and there is literally no mess!
Just add water!
The Aquadoodle Super Colour Deluxe (RRP £24.99) is certainly a step up from our existing version. The mat is larger, the colours more vibrant and there is a better selection of "tools". The larger mat is perfect for two children to share (as you can see from our photos below). The superior tools include a chunky, triangular pen; three stampers and stamping pad; and a brush and water pot. These are all designed to be easy and comfortable for little hands to grip. Aquadoodle is suitable for 18 months plus so it is fantastic for early mark making. The colourful plastic edge of the mat is covered with cheerful pictures and is great for resting the tools when they aren't in use.

All you need to do to get started is add water to the pen, the pot and the pad and then the fun begins. When your children draw with the water on the mat, the mat magically changes colour and your children's creations can be seen. The stampers make clear defined images of a music note, a bee and a snail. The pen is great for drawing and writing and the brush creates broader marks.
Double Trouble!
The Mini Reviewers (and some not-so-mini-reviewers) have had lots of fun with this product already and we would recommend it for anyone who wants to encourage creativity in their little ones yet avoid the mess!
Fabulous Family Fun!
We were also lucky enough to receive some Aquadoodle Peppa Pig Mini Mats, which are designed for mess free fun on the go. Each bag contains three reusable sheets and a small refillable pen. We recently put these to the test on our train journey to Edinburgh and, as you can see, they were a massive success! They would make a great little stocking filler.
Aquadoodling on the go!
Come Round UK provided us with an additional Aquadoodle Super Colour Deluxe, which we would love to giveaway! So if you would like to try the Aquadoodle Super Colour Deluxe for yourself, then why not enter below:
