Bic’s wipeboard for children? Under £4? Brilliant, that’s what it is.
We love this little board.
We SO do.
Pone side is squared graph paper, and the other side is blank. There is a clip at the top which is a rubber and also a clip for the pen. Simple, neat and SO handy.
I have a 5yr old girl, and she loves or draw and write. Constantly and endlessly. And I know she’s not alone in her obsession.
But keeping up with it in terms of paper is hideousness – a problem which this board neatly solves.
It also allows her to leave sweet messages lying around for her older brothers (and for them to leave some rude ones back… *cough*).
Our pen has run out now, she has used it so much – but any dry-wipe marker does the job. The rubber is excellent, and there’s no leftover staining on the board, even after practically daily use.
Perfectly sized for holding, big enough for a masterpiece but small enough for slipping in a roomy bag… It’s excellent for writing practice (those pesky ‘th’ sounds are our latest conquest), and for explanation diagrams during older boys homework. It has also become a staple on car journeys – perfect for hangman, or a spot of bored-car doodling without the risk of lost pencils (no one’s foolish enough to allow felt tips in the car of course, but did you know crayons melt in the sun and NEVER come out of the car upholstery? No, me either.).
So. If you see one, do buy it. At just £3.99 what’s to think about?
