My 6 year old loves to draw and color but always seems to make a mess whenever he takes out his paper and crayons. Most days, I feel like I'm running around in circles all day picking up markers, crayons and paints and putting his "books" back together. Not to mention the small fortune I'm spending on printer paper! So we were thrilled when we learned we would have the opportunity to review the new Drawsome Tablet by Ubisoft for the Wii!
So what is the Drawsome Tablet?
According to their press release, "Ubisoft announced the Drawsome Tablet, the newest drawing peripheral on the market for the Wii system from Nintendo, is now available at retail outlets throughout the United States. Drawsome Tablet is the only tablet for Wii that comes bundled with two games. Both games encourage players to unleash their creativity, as well as challenge players to embark on fun family friendly gaming adventures. Drawsome is rated E for Everyone and is available for the suggested retail price of $59.99."
The Drawsome Tablet includes two great games on one disc, Drawsome Artist - featuring the Smurfs and Drawsome Sketch Quest. The deluxe 8.5" screen makes it easy to make your artwork come alive right on your TV screen and you can easily share your artistic creations with an SD card - powered by your Wii remote! The Drawsome Tablet by Ubisoft really makes it easy to draw, play and share!
Ashton and I were very excited to have the opportunity to test out the new Drawsome tablet! As I mentioned earlier in this post, Ashton loves to draw, paint, and color so I knew he would enjoy the Drawsome. I love the fact that you can "color" with paints, pastels, markers, pencils and all of them in every color you could imagine! I don't think I've ever seen so many colors! That really helps make your pictures come alive!
They also help you learn to draw your favorite Smurf characters and even let you create your own original masterpieces on the Free Draw mode. I was very impressed with this product however I really wish they had more games available for it. It's been out for over a month and I haven't been able to find anything else but the two games it came with.
I highly recommend this product to everyone that has children that love to color or draw and any parent that hates the mess that can make!
