Review:
A perfect rainy-day project for any child who has a pet, this kit offers just enough challenge to give a child a sense of accomplishment. Our seven-year old tester liked pondering his art plan for his pooch equally as well as producing it. It was a nice change of pace to see a usually-sports-minded little guy turning to art. The warning to parents -- after painting the dish, you need to let it sit for two weeks. Luckily we went on vacation. When we came back, our dog Chappy was happy to have a new dish. And so were we.
