Just okay, not wowed.
The presentation of this product on the sales page really had me interested in this item. I was looking for a gift for my 8 year old niece to go along with her other art supplies I bought her. It is my fault for not reading the product description better before I purchased. This item is tiny. It is a 6"x6" booklet and is extremely thin. I know that it says 8 pages but I really had a different perception of what I was going to get. Some of the pages already had scratch marks on them, starting to display what is underneath the page you will be scratching. This is probably a great item for to use in the car or as a stocking stuffer. Definitely not a main gift item though. I would say it is geared more towards a 3-4 year old.

Tons of Fun, but Small
My daughter loves this sketchbook. It contains one half with the rainbow color and one half with the sparkly color behind the black. We lost the sketching stick right away, so we just started using a barbecue skewer.
One thing to note, this notebook is way smaller than you might think it is. It's only maybe 5 in.². For some reason I thought it would be full-sized. It also only has about 12 pages, that's why I have docked it a star. I guess I should've read the details, but I think for that price it should be bigger and have more pages.

Smaller than I thought it would be
This was much smaller than I anticipated. Be sure to read the fine print and check the dimensions before you order. I failed to do this. I'm not sure the size was worth the price. Besides being small they are fun scratch sheets and my kids love them. This pad comes with both rainbow background and metallic.

Be prepared for clean up
This leaves black stuff everywhere. I wouldn't recommend. It's pretty cool, but very messy.

Super small. Should be labeled as a travel pad. Embarrassing to use as a gift. :(
Tiny. I was shocked to see how small it is. Was a birthday gift but I am honestly too embarrassed to give this. The pictures don't really clue you in to how tiny it is. Don't make my mistake - take note of the dimensions. Only 6x6x1!!! More like a travel pad, something that you'd pick up from a truck stop.

My 6 year old daughter LOVES this little scratch pad! We take it with us to restaurants and on car trips to keep her occupied. The only (very minor) issue is that when she scratches/draws, the black dust makes a tiny mess similar to pencil eraser shavings. Great product!

It really is small!
This is small! Really small! I've bought scratch art before and didn't realize from the item description how small this product was. For the cost, I thought it was the full size. Please update product description so others don't make the same mistake I did.

My girls love this!
My girls (ages 4 & 6) loved this. My 6 year old watched a video on a similar product. A YouTuber was making their own scratch paper. My daughter wanted to try it. I'm sure some of you can manage that type of DIY project, but I'll save myself the time (and mess) and buy it this time!
I will be buying again (and probably again).

This was a great little kit for my 8 year old niece
This was a great little kit for my 8 year old niece. She loved scratching the different pages. My sister & I enjoyed magic scratch pads as children back in the 1990's and this brought back those memories.

This doodle pad is awesome. It's a unique way for kids and teens to make art. The finished products are playful and whimsical. I like the element of surprise since you can't tell what colors will be revealed. Because this sort of paper doesn't allow for erasing or redrawing, I'd recommend the product for kids 9 or older. I can see younger kids getting very frustrated.
The paper is smaller than I expected for this kind of product. You may wish to check the specs before you order. The paper is fair quality. My item arrived quickly and I was pleased with the purchase.
