This is perfect for kids of all ages and adults. You just write and hit delete to erase. The tablet is light weight and easy to handle. With it's own pen attached to the tablet with the cord you are sure to always be able to write. It is not made for painting or markers, and is advised not to get it wet. I find it will help my friends granddaughter to practice her writing and numbers with out the need of loads of paper and pencils. Simply a must have for all home to make quick notes.
