To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's a good size board, so youngsters can make decent size drawings. The sliding strip which wipes off the drawing does a good job. Sturdy frame is good and the magnetic shapes are handy too. I wouldnt recommend the shapes for very small children - but they can be removed and stored elsewhere.
Bought for my 2 year old grandson to use in the car on his families cross Canada move. He used it every day and loved it. Gave it to him a couple of nights before they left and found him the next morning awake and doodling away on his own. Only downfall is, is that the three magnet shapes do not click in to the holders, they just sit in there so when he was done if he put the Magnadoodle over the side of his car seat the shapes went flying. Other than that a great buy!
This is clearly not the original makers of the Magna Doodle, because this thing is a piece of crap. Super cheap material and feels like its going to break any second. Even sliding the bar to clear the table gets stuck every time and feels like its about to snap off. Save your money for a better option.
Very cheap. They stick a piece of paper with the sticky stuff like credit cards right to the screen so now it will not come off and i have 2 black marks on it. Of course it was a xmas gift so it is too late to return.
