The Crunch Mega Art Set by Little Kids, Inc. includes everything required to create five three-dimensional crafts: a dolphin, a frog, a smiley face, a tulip and a butterfly. The set features the crunch art activity surface, crunching stylus, five templates, two hundred and eight pre-cut pieces of fabric, ribbon, and googly eyes. The kit, geared towards children aged four and up, requires no cutting, no glue, and no mess, a fact which any parent can appreciate.

The kit engages children in a wholesome, non-battery-operated activity which can last for hours. It encourages creativity and imagination as children can create their crafts in any way they desire. The crunching stylus, which is held like a crayon or pencil, encourages pincer grasp and proper pencil grip. Crunching the fabric into the template hones hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

Overall, the Crunch Mega Art Set is a quality product which entertains while honing key developmental skills.
