Summary: Bought these for my grandchildren after they went crazy over my son in laws tablet. When I saw them in color on line I thought all the better for 4 girls of varied ages. Plus, they were less expensive that the plain silver one. Was delighted when they arrived, until I did a bit of research to find out why the silver ones were more expensive. They were the newer models. The "original" boogie boards did not have a "replaceable" battery.
Summary: The black screen had been damaged on the edge. It may have happened due to cold weather or it may have been thrown around a little too much. Had it been in good condition, would've been a great gift for my mom who writes everything down on sticky notes all over her kitchen.
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my neighbour. It worked for 1 week then the reset button would not work. It was past the Amazon 30 day return period and the company only has a warranty for 30 days on their product! Glad they have so much faith in the quality of the product. I am left with something for the landfill and no gift for my neigbour. Disappointed in Improv electronics for such a shoddy warranty. Beware and find a similar product with a better warranty.
Summary: I've tried several different reusable writing surfaces, and this is probably the worst. As other reviewers note, you can't replace the battery, sure, and the coloring could be a lot more vivid given this is an electronic thing. But I'll also add that if you keep the side of your hand on the writing surface *at all* when you write (which most/many adults making Western characters will do), ghost marks will show up under what you've written on this thing...
Summary: It's no more than an Etch-a-Sketch that you can at least pick up and move the stylus to create pictures. I thought it might be good for lists, etc., but since you can't save the lists and edit them, it's of little use for adults. I bought it for my four-year-old grandson who enjoys scribbling on it and erasing the scribble. I bought the extra stylus and magnets because it didn't mention in the description that they were included, but they were so that was a waste.
