When we got the packaging in the post I thought they looked really odd and couldn't quite work out how they worked? The premise is you can have felts but not really worry about those pesky lids. So we got them out. And then? We popped the bottom thingy me bob (technical term) and it was hilarious. My girl screamed with glee!
The base spreads out and the felts go into like a little hedgehog. Which with two? Is fab for sharing as they can both grab them. With no need for felt lids you can just take the colours out wherever you like and put them back in wherever you like. No felts lids rolling under the couch, or being eaten by the dog or mysteriously disappearing into the world where odd socks live.
I will say however this may be aimed at slightly older children as my two found it quite hard to pull the felt tips out. Which is good as it means they are in there nice and stable. So it could be used with younger children but only if you are helping. I think for those who are at school, and maybe have a little work area? This is a really fun product. My two made me pop the thingy me bob (technical term remember) in and out about five times!
