Dauber Dawgs Dot Markers Review

Isaak loves playing with different mediums, and materials. The trouble with him is that he gets bored, and distracted easily. We have a lot of different things around that he can work with.

Recently I got Dauber Dawgs Dot Markers for Isaak to review. 


Isaak new exactly how these markers are used. He has apparently used similar ones at school.

It comes with 8 colors:
  1. Purple
  2. Red
  3. Pink
  4. Orange
  5. Yellow
  6. Brown
  7. Green
  8. Blue
I like that the colors are the color name instead of funky names like Blueberry Blue, or Pea Green. They should be listed just their color name because kids are using them that are possibly just learning their colors. Isaak knows his, but these markers can be used by toddlers to.

I also like that the lid and label match the color that they make. 



Color Sheets:

Dauber Dawgs has 100 color sheets that can be downloaded and printed off. I did see some negative comments where customers thought there was going to be some color sheets in with their package. Printing 100 sheets can get expensive. 

Maybe they could have 10 coloring sheets come printed with the package, and the rest available on their website. 


Isaak likes to just color out of his imagination, so this didn't really effect him. 

Here's what Isaak came up with:

It would be best to use thicker paper with them, so no warping occurs. 


This is part of a book Isaak is working on.


The Markers Before and After Use:

This was before use. I only dabbed it down on paper once.


This was after use.


Washable?

They are supposed to be washable. Isaak used them on a book, so that he wouldn't get marker on the table, or floor. The book had marker on it that wouldn't wash off. Isaak's hands had marker on them that wouldn't wash off. Overall he didn't make too much of a mess. It washes off to an extent. 

Here's the box that Isaak colored on, but tried to wash off. There's still pink on the box.


Overall this is a great addition to my creative boys art stuff.

Best Ages:

They are best for toddlers and preschoolers. Isaak's a little old for them (almost 8), but he still enjoys them. Any age can use them.

Cost:

They are $23.99, but are on sale for $15.97.

What's your favorite thing to color with?

I like the colors and that they seem small for smaller hands.
I would not think to use it to color, but I would use them for helping little ones learn their shapes and alphabet.

These look a lot like the BINGO Dawbers my Mom used to use when she played BINGO

Printer ink is expensive. I would not buy these unless there were some coloring sheets included.

They look so fun! They remind me of the Bingo markers my aunt used to use when she would go out every weekend.
