{Review} Wooden Art Board ~ Goldfish Gifts

Posted on the 29 October 2013 by Meltingmoments

Two and a half year old Dora is really starting to enjoy drawing. Her favorite drawing tools at the moment are what she calls dab-dabs (bingo markers). They are nice and thick for her to grip and allow a fair bit of control when she’s trying to draw.

Lately she has started drawing faces. I love how she narrates as she draws. It gives me such an insight into her thoughts and imagination.

“One eye. Two eyes. A nothe (she has a lisp). A biiigg smiley mouth. One ear. Two ears. Spiky hair…“ I just love it.

I love displaying her art work but often it would haphazardly get stuck onto the fridge with a magnet until it fell off and ended up being lost or filed somewhere. I had thought about buying a large frame to display it but it seemed like changing it as regularly as she produces paintings she’s proud of, could end up being a bit of a chore.

Recently, I’ve been lucky to road test Goldfish Gift’s wooden art board. Ours features a rather cute red octopus on a blue background. ‘He’ has been a cute addition to the playroom and has also freed up some room on the fridge for other things, like photos (and bills – boo!).

I like the two sturdy bulldog clips that hold the art in place. Unlike using a frame, it allows you to store a few pieces of art under the first so you can rotate through them for display. It would be a convenient way to hang wet paintings too.

Like all Goldfish gifts, it has been ethically handmade (this product in Bali).
