This is exactly what I needed, the mountains of notes I use to have around when I was younger was embarrassing, then as I got older I progressed to a notepad now this. I only ever make notes on paper for recipes now (generally in my home made recipe book now) this has saved so much paper!
I'm over the moon decided to purchase it it's been an asset.
As for other things well yes I have drawn silly pictures and yes the munchkins have too. It's great for teaching sums and division. I am actually going to get my niece and nephews some because it's going to help alot with math practice and spelling.
I hope others find lots of other uses too.
The only down side is a simple push of a bitton wipes it all, which as you can imagine is problematic!
