Hey Doodle ‘Into The Wild’  

Image of author
Writing this at the start of September but this product being small and easy to post is an ideal present that auntie or uncle can send to their niece or nephew without exorbitant extra charges. I don’t get the chance to see too many items aimed at younger children. But to my knowledge this is the first item of this type that I have knowledge of.

HeyDoodle Reusable Colour in Silicone Placement

The product consists of a wipe clean ‘Mini Mat’ which has outlines of 13 wild animals and three felt pens (wipe clean).

The mat is 30x20cm and has 13 different outlines of animals to colour and each has a capital letter beside them which can also be coloured in. Once the mat has been coloured in it can be wiped clean ready to be used again on another day.

The three Hey Doodle felt pens have clip on lids in the colour of the ink while the rest of the pen is white.  

As the outlines of the letters are capitals it also helps the child learning to form letters.

They also do larger mats and even books.

There are five ‘Mini Mats’ on the link at the end. Apart from ‘Into The Wild’ there is also ‘Toot Toot Honk’, ‘Sugar and Spice’, ‘Dino Roar’ and finally ‘Aussie Animals’. While each come in the same tube type container with a silicone mat the colours of the non-permanent felt pens do not seem to vary.

All of the five different ‘Mini Mat’ types are priced at £14.99.

The age group stated is 3-7 years.

The pens are stated to be non-toxic.

The larger mats and books come with a greater range of pen colours.

It’s a nice idea to encourage colouring in but the twist of getting them to fill in the letters as well also can teach them letters also.

More details can be found on the HeyDoodle web site.

At the time of publication this product is available from Amazon for £14.99.
