This ink pad makes what is an already difficult project into a much easier one. Wrangling a baby and trying to put ink on their feet or hands just becomes a jumbled mess. This ink pad makes it much easier and much easier clean up. Can use the pad mor than once. I used it about 4 - 6 times. My baby didnt want to cooperate. :) I would suggest this to anyone who wants prints of their babies hands or feet.
