Great for your child's development:
Thinking up fun things to do with Spiral Art kit – like decorating cards to give to friends – helps foster your child's creative side, and the patterns themselves feed your child's growing imagination. A spiral could become a picture of a tunnel, a flower, a star or an alien planet. Learning to put the pen-tip in the little holes and turn the cogs around and around is a fantastic way for your child to develop dexterity in their hands.

A poorly made copy of the original spirograoph toy I enjoyed as a child. This is really difficult to use and definitely for much older children. Very disappointed

My daughter loves this but needs assistance with using the product. She is 5 years old and the guidelines should be for an older age group as it is a little tricky to use.

I totally agree with the other reviews; this item is a total waste of money, poorly made and very disappointing. I read the reviews before I bought it, but stupidly, thought 'can it really be that bad?' Well I can honestly say it is a total waste of time. The frame is so fiddly to fit - we just gave up - and the kids got really frustrated trying to use it. It is going straight back for a refund, just on principle. Don't bother, even for a fiver.

Fife, Scotland. GB
Bought for my 4 yr old who loves all things arty. There was no way he could use this himself, in fact I struggled to get it to work. The paper and pens supplied were terrible too. The whole lot was put in the bin after a couple of days - it's no fun for a 4 year old to sit and struggle and get frustrated and upset.

My mum bought this for my 3 year old and its just pure rubbish! The only way to get it to stay is to turn it upside down, put the stencils in (thats like the red bit in the promo pic) put the paper on top then hold it all together and flip it over. The felt tips it came with were really 'wet', leaked through multiple layers of paper, thankfully I realised quickly and could clean off my table. A really REALLY poor product. Not worth the money.
