What is it
The magnetic My Little Pony Megasketcher drawing board has a unique special screen that allows budding artists to draw clear, crisp My Little Pony pictures that magically disappear with one sweep of the eraser. The Megasketcher pen draws thick and thin lines; there are also four shape stampers.

What our experts think
The Megasketcher provides a mess free way for children to express themselves artistically; being able to share their drawings with others gave our testers a real sense of pride, which can provide a great boost to their creative skills. But they also really enjoyed the ‘magic’ of making their masterpiece disappear! The My Little Pony theme can encourage an interest in using the Megasketcher.
Drawing and using the stamps can develop the hand and finger control (known as fine motor skills) that children need to write. It was also lovely to see some children spontaneously practising their writing skills. We liked the way in which it could easily to taken on your travels, although one tester did comment on the size, saying that it was a little large for the car.
