Now why didn’t I think of that? Doodle Rolls are one of those toys in the marketplace that are so simply and perfectly entertaining, it will makes parents wonder why they haven’t either created it themselves, or seen them before on the toy store shelves.
The Doodle Roll is basically a small roll of white paper (about the same size as a bathroom tissue roll) and a couple of crayons. I love toys that really allow kids to be creative. No long directions or game pieces to lose – just a new medium for drawing and decorating. The Doodle Roll size and concept is perfect for traveling, whether you are seeking a quiet time activity for a meal out or a weekend trip to grandma’s house.
My three year old son is into trains, cars and trucks so his roll became a long interstate highway. We could draw construction zones, traffic signs and creative roadway obstructions, such as cows and space aliens. My five year old daughter loves to practice her writing therefore her roll became a huge banner announcing the ice cream flavors available at her newly opened café. How do you spell strawberry, mom? It’s really nice when I can find an activity that allows both my children to play at their own speed.
