Pros: Crayola Magic Scene Creator Review 

Important to note that the Crayola Magic Scene Creator is a 2017 Award Winner.

Boost Kids Imaginations

There is no doubt the motion cards light up kids imagination.  Uniquely designed for drawings, they appear to animate when you place the cards on the tablet’s screen.  At the same time, you can also create your own drawings with the gel FX markers.

To point out here, there are five great themes which includes: Animals, Fantasy, Mix and Match, Special FX, and Mystery.  Bear in mind that you can make these cards your own.  Certainly, just use the included markers in the kit to customize them.

Develops Critical Thinking Skills

In general, this kit allows kids to use critical thinking skills.  To explain, a child needs to use these skills to set up the animation process.  In fact it is almost like putting a puzzle together in a creative way.

Once this is done the images do have a great effect.  They look like they are moving, and children really enjoy putting their favorite scenery together.

Scene Speeds

Another key point is that this tablet has speed buttons, so you can use them to change your animations.  For instance, you can make the images move faster or slower.  With this in mind, just touch a button to see the images in action.

Enhance Images

For one thing, the 6 gel FX markers truly enhance images, whether from the motion cards or your own drawing.  In fact the markers are washable.  As a result you wipe images from the screen easily with just a damp cloth. Hence you can draw again as many times as you desire.


Following this further, this drawing kit features a portable design.  As a matter of fact, you just organize the action cards in the storage slot.  Indeed this makes it easy to draw and customize your art work.  Then you use the built in stand to display your masterpieces and enjoy them.



In spite of the many positives about this drawing kit, here are a few faults to consider.

  • In reality, some younger kiddies will find the photos almost impossible to recreate. There are different parts to deal with, therefore this activity requires supervision.
  • The animation effect is not steady.  As a result, some kids find it difficult to acquire.
  • If for any reason the the screen is blurry, and the images are not clear, then it is strenuous on the eyes.  On the other hand, the light emitted can be too bright.  There is no lighting control and this can take away the enjoyment.
  • The loud sound from this toy can be irritating.
  • The kit uses 3 AA batteries which are not included, so make sure you have some on hand.
  • If kids wear long sleeves while using this toy, the sleeves can get in the way and smudge their work.

All things considered, the Crayola Magic Scene Creator is no doubt a fantastic drawing kit for kids to draw creatively.  Remember, kids get to turn vibrant images into animations instantly, and the possibilities are many.

This great drawing kit makes a wonderful gift.  The screen is well made and should last a long time.  Undoubtedly this kit offers an imaginative way for kids to observe animation magic.

This kit thoroughly keeps kids entertained and helps them to think creatively.

    Hi Carol!
    Loved the article, makes me wish I had some kind of artistic talent, but at the very least my son enjoys coloring. He’s only 6 so there’s still hope I guess. Great job! 🙂
