If you head over to Argos, you'll be able to pick up a Chad Valley Magic Writer for £4.99- having run a quick price comparison, I can tell you that Amazon are selling them for £13.09. So popular are they, they only have four in stock.
Things like this Chad Valley Magic Writer are just awesome for keeping kids occupied when you're out and about as well - there's no mess, no fuss, just good old fashioned entertainment that's simple and fun.
My youngest son, Edward, had something very similar to this Chad Valley Magic Writer when he was little and he L.O.V.E.D it! I must confess that he wasn't the only one - everyone in the family had too much fun drawing pictures on the special magnetic board and stamping patterns with the stamps that came with it.
We didn't just draw pictures on it though - it was great for introducing first number and letters to him too.
The reviews from existing owners are great too, so you don't just have to take my word for it:
"Bought this for my 2 an a half yr old. She loves it, great mess free way for her to draw. She never puts it down, works out alot cheaper than buying loads of paper."
"I bought this for my 2 1/2 year old son and he loves it. It seems quite robust and easy for him to hold and he spends quite a bit of time drawing on it. For the price you can't beat it!"
You can choose whether or not to collect your Chad Valley Magic Writer from your Argos store of choice, or having it delivered - which will cost you an additional £3.95.
