The new childrens’ painting craze
I dithered and dithered over this Christmas present. A relative of mine has a habit of buying loads of cheap imitation presents like pretend Barbie stuff and they always fall apart in a couple of days and I just wish that instead she’d just buy one,
My daughters had seen them and really wanted one, but it costs £20. So that would be £40 as I’d have to buy one for each of them – and that’s a lot of money for what is basically a set of paints and sponges. So I had a look on e-bay, and they also had them at the Saturday market. Not the real thing though; a cheap imitation. It even says on the box, ‘Similar to as seen on TV’ !! But they go for half the price.
So I bought them a box each for Christmas from e-bay. And then I worried that they’d open them and the brushes would fall apart or the paint would just run and never dry and be useless. But no – they’ve been absolutely fine. Since Christmas day the kids have had them out twice and provided an hours worth of entertainment each time, with no problems at all. So in this case, I would actually recommend buying the rip-off version of something!
