Crayola Colour Wonder Magic Light Brush

Submitted by on November 15, 2010 – 4:20 pmNo Comment

I was disappointed with the Crayola Colour Wonder Magic Light Brush, but you can not argue that the children loved the way the paint brush lit up with each colour you used it with.

Buy online: Amazon.co.uk



Intial Thoughts: I know that a lot of people are put off painting with their children due to the fear of mess, so I was intrigued to see how the Crayola Colour Wonder Magic Light Brush worked with the special paper and clear paint provided and the boys argued as to who would use it first.

We liked: The boys loved the fact that the paint brush tip lit up with the colour of the paint in the pot you dipped it in.

We weren’t keen: I found the paint was thick and sticky, so it took an age to dry and the special paper stuck together. The colour when it does appear is washed out  and the boys found this frustrating initially and applied it pretty thick meaning it took lober to dry!  You have to wash and dry the brush after each colour, you try telling them to a 3 year old, so the paint colours mesh together.  The pots are small too, so if doesn’t last very long and it will dry up if you leave the lids off.

Overall: The Crayola Colour Wonder Magic Light Brush is an expensive gimmick, we will be sticking to good old fashioned washable paint.
