I placed the buddha board in a common area for everyone in the family to enjoy. To my great surprise, everyone had a go at using it and had heaps of fun with it. In fact, we started having discussions on how to write certain Chinese characters, which is a great way for us to connect with our older parents. My husband also commented on the fact that he love that it just dries up and disappears, so he doesn't care as much about making mistakes, allowing him to freely draw whatever. Big thumbs up from everyone!
A bit pricey for what it is, as the material that the "painting" is done on is cheap and common calligraphy practice material in China. But mounting it nicely on a board and presenting it as such is a genius idea. You can't well give someone a sheet of paper and tell them it's magical and they can write on it over and over with water, but you can give them this and it comes in a nice box and has a little booklet to explain what they are supposed to do with it and looks elegant when set up. So. The recipient loved it and everyone else in the room wanted to play with it, so well worth it. I'm tempted to get one for myself even though I have sheets of the magical paper.
The board works as it says it will, a lovely product. Slightly disappointed that it doesn't look exactly like it does on the box, there is a small lip around the edge, and it looks cheap in comparison. Still worth a look if you like interesting items on your desk.
This was bought as a gift and the recipient loves it. The sense of nothing being permanent is reinforced by the gentle fading of your artwork. The board and water stand are well made and we have had great fun with it. It also comes well packaged too. Could see me buying it for others for gifts
