Irene & Ellie Awarded The Aquarelle Midi – Dolphins 4.6/5

Looked great and something Ellie would be keen to do. Packaging was OK and arrived in sturdy box.Instructions were easy to follow but would have been better if all GB instructions went down one page instead of having to go through 19 pages. All the contents were very good quality. The recommended age 8 + is ideal as this was fine for my 10 year old and her 13year old friend. Ellie had enough ink to complete all 3 pictures. My daughter was able to make all the pictures in the box with materials supplied. My daughter also enjoyed trying out and mixing her own colours. My daughter loved using this product, got creative and enjoyed mixing her own colours. We just used this as intended. This is a great product, well-made and design is great. Very good value for money. I have already purchased another one for a birthday gift. Highly recommend. We loved this product but was hard to get paint off skin but does tell you this in the instructions but would be better added to packaging. Irene Gilmour –Ellie 10 years

 

Product Tested By Simone Thompson – Jennifer 9 Years

Simone & Jennifer Awarded the Aquarelle Midi – Dolphins 4.5/5

This looked great as my daughter loves art so ideal for her. Box is very colourful and clearly outlines what is in the box. Well packaged, good quality box and lots of contents. Instructions are easy to follow but you do have book with so many different languages, but I suppose we have to have this now as part of  Europe. The box comes with a couple of canvas prints, well they are printed and you colour in. You also get the liquid ink, brush, and palette and pipette all a budding artist needs. The recommended age was ideal for Jennifer. My daughter loved this and spent hours preparing her colours and painting her canvas. She enjoyed mixing her own colours and now we have all 3 framed and on her wall for her to admire and tell everyone this is her own work. This is a great creative product, comes with ample ink to complete all 3 pictures. Quality is very good, finished product looks great and really good value for money. Only thing is be careful as if you get ink on clothes or skin can be difficult to get off. Just ensure your child has protective clothing. Jennifer loved this and all her pieces of artwork are proudly presented on her bedroom wall. We just loved this and have already purchased more as gifts. Great arts and crafts product from a well know brand and I would highly recommend. Jennifer had hours of fun and had pictures to hang on her wall. Simone Thompson –Jennifer 9 years

 

Product Tested By Valerie Trimble – Lucile 8 Years

Valerie & Lucile Awarded The Aquarelle Midi – Dolphins 4.9/5

This is well presented as the box is highly attractive, colourful and would catch your eye in any store. Box is good quality and contains all you need to get started and paint your masterpieces. Contents include canvas, inks, brush, mixer and pipette. Instructions are easy to follow and do outline to keep ink from getting on skin and clothes. Very informativeinstructions. I had not concerns about Lucile using this product as recommended age 8 years plus. We prepared the painting area; ensured table was protected and put a painting apron on Lucile to protect clothes. The canvas has outline for you to follow so you can colour in each section in your own time. The inks are really easy to mix and Lucile also mixed some of her own colours. The finished product looked great. She spent hours painting and making sure everything was just perfect. She really enjoyed doing this and kept her concentrating for hours. Enough bits in the box to complete all of the 3 canvas pictures supplied. My daughter loved doing this and has really got into being creative now and painting. We had enough to finish all 3 and Lucile has handed them out as gifts to family as signed them too. She was so proud and what a lovely product. This is high quality, good value for money and you have a canvas picture at the end to frame or give out as a gift. I will be looking to purchase more in this range and have recommended to lots of family and friends. A wonderful art set, high quality and helps children experiment, paint and get creative.Valerie Trimble – Lucile 8 years
 

Product Tested By Joanne Pooley – Jodie 9 Years

JoanneAwarded The Aquarelle Midi – Dolphins 4.2/5

Very nice looking product with bright packaging. Packaging is very eye catching. Instructions are very easy to follow. The contents are very good but we did find the paint mixing palette was not big enough. I would say the age suitability is reasonably OK but could be a bit tricky for some children in this age group. We actually ran out of ink so could not complete the last picture. My daughter managed to make and complete 2 of the pictures and was very pleased with them. My daughter did enjoy the creative aspect of this product and really enjoyed mixing her own colours which was her favourite bit. My daughter had great fun mixing the colours and she loves anything crafty. Personally I think this item is a bit overpriced. I would suggest including a larger mixing palette. Great product for an arty crafty child. Joanne Pooley – Jodie 9 years
