Crayola makes great products for Christmas gifts! (review & giveaway)

Crayola has been around a long time, and they have super products that kids (of all ages) can enjoy. We recently got three new products from the Crayola line to review, and I am so excited about these products! My kids had so much fun trying these out, and now they are a new favored activity around the Sassyfrazz household!
Crayola Beginnings Color Me A Song:
Color me a song is a drawing/coloring table that kids can color to music on. Kids can hear a drum, piano, guitar and/or a trumpet, and the music switches between different musical styles such as salsa, rock, swing and country. When kids slide a piece of paper into the slots on the board, music starts up. When kids start coloring the tune plays to their speed: slower, a slower tempo, and when they color faster the tempo picks up. The portable drawing and music creation station features a pressure-sensitive board that matches a melody to the artist´s pace. There is a great slide out storage for crayons when not in use. That is helpful!
Color Me a Song was named a "Toy of the Year" by Family Fun magazine and one of American Baby magazine´s picks for "Best Toys of the Year." For children 24 months and up; suggested retail price is $24.99.


Crayola Glow Station:
The Glow station is so fun, and makes no mess! This is the ultimate drawing pad for toddlers/preschoolers (in my opinion). Seriously, a drawing pad that kids will want to draw on, and if they get inclined to color with the wand off of the drawing pad~ no mess!
The Glow Station is a glow-in-the-dark pad and when kids draw on it with the light wand, their creations are illuminated! The Glow station comes with stencils, cut-outs and texture sheets to make fun pictures. The light wand can be used alone, or you can attach the diamond shaped crystal on the end to make amazing designs...my kids like the star-shapes it makes.
The drawings last a little while, even when you don't touch the light wand directly onto the Glow Station. After a few minutes the designs will disappear. One thing we found fun with the Glow Station: If you lay your arm on the glow station with the lights on, then turn off the lights and removing your arm...there is an impression on the Glow Station! Very fun product!
For children ages six and up; suggested retail price is $29.99.

Crayola Color Explosion Glow Dome:
The Glow Dome is a very fun product~ especially in the dark. The Glow dome comes with six special markers and stencil sheets. Kids can use the stencils to draw scenes on the dome, or use their own imagination. The center of the Glow Dome comes out, and can be laid onto a stencil for easy transfer, and kids just trace the picture onto the plastic center.
The Glow Dome comes with 2 sheets of stencils, but more can be downloaded online.
The outside of the Dome can be colored on, too. It was fun to see my children's creativity come to life. My oldest drew a man/alien on the outside and when he turned the dome on, the man was running around the outside of the Dome! How creative! The Dome has several settings for rotating the outside of the Dome to give dimension and life to your creation. On the inside, lights are displayed, and there a a few settings to change how the lights are displayed.
The kids were so excited when we turned out the lights and the Glow Dome lit up the room. I hope that my pictures can show you what fun these products can bring! I know my kids love them! For ages six and up; suggested retail price is $29.99.
Our family recommends these great Crayola products, and would like to suggest these items for your Christmas shopping.

Ms SassyFrazz its the Glow Dome we want. That's what I listed on our contest entry for the Crayola Sweeps. My daughter got the Glow Station and now stays up with it in her bed at bedtime. It's a pretty neat toy so I assume the Glow Dome is fun too.

All of Crayola's stuff is awesome. I loved getting arts and craft stuff from Crayola when I was a kid. My kids are all about the Glow Dome this year, so that is what I would put on my Crayola "wish list". They would be excited if I won it - especially Izzy who had it in big letters on her Christmas list this year.

I also would love the Color Wonder Disney Coloring Book & Markers, thanks!
