Magic Sketch

32 Votes

Rate this product

Magic Sketch is a revised Magic Sketch board which lets kids of all ages color directly onto the board with bright stencils or pens. When they are done with their work, they can save it through the corresponding app and then go back and make changes later. This lets kids perfect their designs, while also satisfying the urge to draw new things regularly. The design is lightweight and portable, water resistant, and easy brought on the road.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Magic Sketch is $29.95 plus $7.95 shipping, for a total price of $37.9.

This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Magic Sketch being discontinued. Magic Sketch may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

Features

  • Long Battery Life

    The company claims that this product comes with a seven year battery life, which means that theoretically one unit could be used for a child throughout the span of their childhood.

  • Durable

    The drawing pad is durable and water resistant so a few splashes here and there will not hurt it.

  • Great Screen

    This unit comes with a multi-colored screen for better viewing while you work. The screen is even translucent so that kids of all ages can trace things they see, or stencils they order.

  • Save Work

    Kids using it can rely upon the easy touch button to make their work disappear so that they can begin anew. All it takes is one press of the top central button. However, before it gets too late, kids can use the corresponding app to save, edit, and share their work later. It offers children a chance to explore their artistic side and work together with friends.

Pros

  • Good for All Ages

    With the stencils younger kids are able to learn their alphabet, learn math, and play educational games all while being creative. Older kids can use the game stencils to play word find games, dots and boxes, maze games, and even tic tac toe.

  • Guarantee

    You get a money back guarantee for the first thirty days after your order is placed.

  • Free Upgrade

    When you order from the company you get a free deluxe upgrade which gives you 4 different styluses. Two of which are in the shape of pens both thick and thin, or of which is a large marker shape, and the fourth of which is like a shovel.

    Consumers also get the protective case built onto the Magic Sketch product, 60 different stencils, and one roller with three stamps. The roller lets kids roll various borders and shapes onto the panel while the stencils are not just letters but shapes, patterns, large images, and even outlines for games like tic-tac-toe. This means endless entertainment for children of all ages.

Cons

  • Extra Costs

    They add more shipping in the form of eight dollars for items sent to Canada, and an extra thirteen dollars for things sent to Alaska, Hawaii, or the U. S. Virgin Islands. What’s more, states including Nevada, Ohio, and Utah have state taxes applied to their order.

  • Not Sold in Stores

    This offer is not available in stores so parents are forced to make the order through the website. Results of this mean required upgrade to the deluxe kit, shipping and handling costs, and a longer shipping time. When you add this all together the cost is just shy of forty dollars for one unit.

How It Works

The device uses a liquid crystal screen so that it writes as easily as using a pen and paper, but then erases at the touch of an electric button. Their corresponding app lets kids save things before erasing, so that each time they trace something or create a new design while at a restaurant or sitting in a long car ride, their work remains. When the pen hits the screen it draws in a colorful rainbow, so each piece of art becomes a wonderfully bright piece of craftsmanship.

Complaints

  1. Screen

    One customer complained that the screen was very dark and hard to see. They claimed that they were not even sure if their grand daughter would be able to play with the device.

    Another customer complained about the brightness of the screen, claiming that it looks much brighter on the advertisement.

    Many claimed this Magic Sketch needs to used in a well lit room or environment.

    There were also a few who said that the only utensil that worked was the pen, all of the other tools did not work on the pads very well.

  2. Customer Service

    There was at least one complaint that a customer has trouble getting a hold of customer support. They claimed that the company never answered or returned any of their calls.

  3. Price

    There were a few un-satisfied customers who thought that this product was over priced and it did not actually keep their young children happy.

    Another said that they refused to purchase this because it seemed over priced and cheap.

  4. Shipping

    One customer complained that they had ordered their Magic Sketch at the beginning of Oct 2017 and had still not received it. They claimed to be quite dissatisfied.

  5. Not Sturdy

    There was one complaint that the customer thought the product complained that it was not as sturdy as they would have expected for a children's toy.

  6. Stamps

    Another complained that although the pad and utensils seemed to work great, they were disappointed with the stamps and said they did not work.

  7. Eraser

    One customer complained that after using the Magic Sketch for a few months, the pad still worked fine and could be drawn on but the eraser stopped working.

  8. False Advertisement

    There was at least one complaint where a customer expected to be getting stamps and a roller with their purchase. However, they were quite disappointed when they did not receive anything with their Magic Sketch.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Returns

    The company will accept returns, however, you must pay the shipping and handling to have the product returned to the manufacturer.

Save Money

By using Magic Sketch, you will save money by no longer having to buy paper or construction card for your kids to drawn on. By using this product, your kids will be able to drawn, and then rease and draw again without having to throw any paper into the trash. This product will save you money and will also help save the envirorment.

Concerns

  • Bad Reviews

    Overall, Magic Sktech seems to have gotten more negative reviews than positive. There were some who liked the product. However most claimed that is was poorly made and did not live up to its advertisement claims.

Alternatives

  • Regular Pens and Paper

    This is likely one of the cheapest alternative to this product. While not as environmentally friendly, paper has been used for centuries by both children and adults for wiritng and drawing.

  • Poker Wolf Lcd Writing Tablet

    This is a battery powered LCD device that lets you draw and take notes. It features a 9*7 inch screen, has a simple one touch erase button and is backed by a one year manufacturer's warranty.

I have something to say!

Can't Contact Them or Track!

I rec'd email after ordering, yet the tracking doesn't recognize the order # or my name! Also the only # listed for them goes straight to music and they never pick up. Thinking I've been scammed!

I Regret Buying it!

DISAPPOINTED

I bought this for my 5 yr old grandson's bday. Was really disappointed how there were two wide gray areas that you can't write on across the board plus how dark it was. My grandson was a great sport and tried to make the best of it, but I was really unhappy.

I Recommend Buying it!

Just Received the 3 we Ordered

I placed the order Dec 1st - today's the 10th - They came via parcel post. I'm slightly displeased that they don't light up more than they do as from what I saw on the advertisements, it looked a LOT brighter. If the room is dim or dark you can not see it at all. The extra pens, stamps and roller are a plus. The kids will like them but I know they say something about them not lighting up : (

I have a Question

Is it really worth it for the price? It is just shy of $40 for one and I have to buy two for both of my kids. Sometimes the colors look really bright and other times I can't see them as well in other video clips.

I got an email with the order status on Dec 8th with a FedEx tracking number. All it says on FedEx is "label created" and doesn't show any progress. I called customer service to see what was going on and could barely understand the woman. Not to mention she was also pretty rude! Was the status of your shipping this weird too?
