Melissa & Doug is a brand I’d never head of before starting doing Toyology reviews, but I’ve come to learn that they produce a lot of high quality products. This Paint with Water set is no exception. There’s a strip of dry paint at the top of each picture which, when moistened, can be used to colour the image. Simple as. The paper is a good thickness and takes a lot of water without falling to bits.
The only real downside is that, being watercolour, the final picture will never be especially brightly coloured.
The set would be a good stocking filler and very good for taking to entertain children while visiting relatives over the holidays since the only ‘extra’ needed is a pot of water (which tends to be available in the houses of most relatives) and mess is (mostly) minimal.
