Check out this sweet review of eeBoo’s Striped Biggies: http://www.thetoyinsider.com/eeboo-has-slick-art-supplies/

I love that they pick up on the #details: The set also includes a pencil sharpener—no more hunting around the house for one the right size! I also appreciate the dedicated spot for the sharpener molded right into the tray for safekeeping.

Toys are Tools blog is doing an eeBoo Art Book giveaway!

Posted by design on Apr 9, 2013 in Learning through Looking, Press Articles, Product Feature

The Learn to Draw Art Books are among eeBoo’s top-sellers, and from Toys are Tools review, it’s not hard to see why! eeBoo commissioned 3 acclaimed children’s book illustrators to  design books that teach children how to draw. The Art Books are open ended, and do as much to playfully encourage children to try something new as they do to provide parameters and instruction.

eeBoo’s Learn to Draw Art Books are in ascending difficulty level, but can be used in any order. The first one is Learn to Draw Simple Forms in the Home and Garden with Lizzy Rockwell for ages 5+, then Experiment with Light, Form, Type, Portraits & More! with Melissa Sweet for ages 5+, with the highest level of difficulty being Learn to Draw Animals with Kevin Hawkes for ages 7+.  Regardless of the recommended ages, children (or adults) in any stage of life are sure to find something useful and inspiring in each of these books.

Petra Pankow, educator at such esteemed museums as the MoMA and Guggenheim, “said that it was a generous gesture on the part of the book to make fun of mistakes. “It gives the book a lightness,” she said, noting that the book encouraged kids to celebrate trying things out.”

“We are focused less on performance and more on enjoyment and usually it’s in this dimension that the magic takes place.” – Blogger at Toys are Tools

“The Learn to Draw book also skillfully uses familiarity to help the kids get drawing.  The kids learn to draw the things they see everyday like things in their room, their kitchen, their backyard… it’s so cool!!” – Blogger at Toys are Tools
