Initial Reaction: (By Bella aged 6 )“They are really good and easy to use – 5 out of 5.  Quite amazing how the blue appears to go underground and the red pops up at you. An amazing thing that everyone should try.

Pros:

  • These are chunky chalks that come with a pair of 3D glasses and an easy to follow instruction booklet.  You can draw anything you like but there are ideas on the booklet for designs that really work in 3D therefore give a lot of pleasure easily and quickly.
  • You draw chunky designs on a pavement or on concrete/patio tiles – for example a box with a lid in a different colour – and as soon as you put the glasses on, the design comes to life and looks 3D.
  • The drawings wash away with just a splash of water so nothing is stained.

Cons:

  • Because you are drawing on a rough surface, the crayon wears out quite quickly.  Some of the design ideas are pretty hard to copy effectively on a pavement due to the lumps in the surface.  You do need to explain the concept of blue disappearing ‘under’ and red being seen ‘higher’ to get the best results.

Value for money? Very good

Overall Reaction: Very simple to use and toget great results quickly.  Entertained us for at least half an hour plus she has been back since and done other drawings using her own imagination – particularly good was a princess with a red face and blue eyes!
