Crayola Review and Gift-away!


It’s no secret that I adore Crayola products – so when I was offered the chance to try out – and host a giveaway for – the new Crayola Digital Light Designer and Crayola Marker Airbrush, it was easy to say yes!


My son adored the rocket ship shape of the Crayola Marker Airbrush, so it’s no surprise that he chose to use the rocket ship stencil for our trial paper run as well as the design for his shirt.


The process is incredibly simple: insert one of of Crayola’s Classic Washable Broadline Markers, Washable Broadline Window Markers, or new Bright Fabric Broadline Markers, pump, and spray – this is a battery-free toy! The Marker Airbrush comes with a nice range of stencils – from Johnny’s rocket ship to Emma’s butterfly:


I love how easy it is to use several different colors for the same design. The ease of use combined with the beauty of the finished product make this a great way for kids to personalize gifts for others! Crayola recommends using light colored shirts, but the design shows up pretty well on Johnny’s army green shirt!


We loved the Crayola Marker Airbrush so much, we made a little video so that you could see it in action:

The kids have not had as much time to play with the Crayola Digital Light Designer – we saved it for Johnny’s birthday, so they’ve only had it since Saturday. They haven’t yet discovered the games, but they all enjoy doodling with Rainbow Draw and Mirror Draw, and three-year-old Lily (who tends to gravitate the most towards technology) has figured out how to do some of the animation effects.


The Digital Light Designer is really a brilliant design – the center of it spins around, and has sensors on one side of the spinner and LED lights on the other. It reminded all of us of the Sponaneous Fantasia show we saw at the Boston Museum of Science. Here is a brief video clip of it in action – my apologies for the shakiness, four-month-olds make for interesting assistant videographers…
