Ubisoft’s Drawsome Tablet Review

Drawsome Box

Having a little girl who loves to learn and try out new things {she’s like her momma}, it’s always neat to be able to test out the newest gaming technologies and tools. We were very excited to check out Ubisoft’s Drawsome Tablet, a new drawing peripheral for the Wii™.

 

Here are some things we like about it:

  • The Drawsome Tablet comes with two games, DrawsomeTM Artist and Drawsome Sketch QuestTM. {Both are easy for Miss A, age 4.5 to play}
  • Drawsome Tablet is very sturdy, no small pieces and very light.
  • SD card allows users will be able to easily share their masterpieces with friends and family
  • Great quality graphics for the age range it caters to

The Drawsome Tablet features a large 8.5-inch screen, and a wireless stylus that is easy for small and large hands alike to grasp. Miss A loved being able to trace her favorite characters and practice her writing skills, which is great for preschool and school aged kiddos.

In Drawsome Artist, players can draw, paint and color by sketching on their own or learning advanced art techniques step by step. They even can interact with their favorite characters from The Smurfs, the world renowned animated brand, and learn how to draw and color them thanks to a huge gallery of predefined models. Also included is Drawsome Sketch Quest, in which players embark on an adventure to help a variety of cute animals race through their world by drawing bridges, trampolines and more. With 40 characters and 80 levels there is never a dull moment in either solo play or family-friendly four person co-op.

Miss A is not quite 5-years-old and once she got the hang of The Smurfs game was off and running on her own. The Drawsome Sketch Quest gave her a little bit of trouble once she got a few levels into the game, but with some pointers and help from mom we were able to progress. I think unless your child has been using the Nintendo Wii from birth, or in the womb they may need some help if under age 7.

Here’s Miss A using the Drawsome Tablet:

 Some tips that would have helped us use the Drawsome Tablet for the first time:

  • Wait until you’ve made all of your selections on the Wii Drawsome Games before you place the Wii-mote into it’s slot on the tablet.
  • Make sure you have a flat surface for the tablet to rest on, it makes it much easier to navigate and maneuver.
  • Go through the games one time yourself {or a few if you’re really loving it} that way you can help your child while they are playing.

Ubisoft’s Drawsome Tablet for the Nintendo Wii retails for around $59.99 but you can certainly find it online for as little as $29.99, which in my book makes it an amazing price. I have not seen any other games compatible with the Drawsome Tablet, however it was just released {on my birthday}, December 6th, 2011 so I can only guess that there will be some coming our way. I can’t wait to see what other fun ideas they come up with. Totally Drawsome!!! {Sorry I couldn’t help myself.}
