Is it possible that familiar pencils and brushes can be replaced by game tablets?

I don't think so. To be more precise, I wouldn't like believe in that.

uDraw GameTablet has been recently launched for Playstation3 and Xbox 360. What is more, the prices for this unique gaming graphics tablet have been fallen down from $79.99 to $49.99.

As it is known, the first uDraw was released in November 2010 as an accessory for videogame Wii console, with the only aim to let users draw and view their creations on the television screen. As the developer claims, the bundled with the uDraw GameTablet software provides “innovative features that allow kids to express themselves and bring their imaginations to life.” However, the previous sales forecast hasn't been justified because of low consumer demand. It seems that a regular family finds it not very rational to spend money for a device which only adds the drawing possibility to the list of popular console games.

To sum it all up, I only can say that I would try this tablet, if I had that extra $50, but we already have too many things at home which can serve my son's creativity purposes (I mean not only familiar pencils or paint, but some computer programs too), so that it is difficult to put this new thing into our hot shopping list.

You know, if you bought it for your son, at least you wouldn't get all your walls and furniture painted by your boy. That's the way I would advertise this device: «This gizmo will save your walls from your creative kids!»

Yeah, and will most likely deprive him of book reading and further physical development :)

Are you sure that drawing on wallpaper and furniture really instills book reading in our kids' minds and helps them develop physically?

Hey, come on! Of course it does: they have to run away from their parents, who eventually catch them and make them read as a punishment ^_^

Oh, that's a point I didn't think about.

But still, imagine how fast a kid should ran away from his or her Dad in case he or she breaks the tablet.

You should have been more thoughtful, honey |( (my favourite smiley)
Now that I got to read the second part of the commentary, I take my words back xD That was me who should've been more thoughtful xD

There's an alarming tendency that modern children give their preferences to computer games instead of playing pranks with peers. But, otherwise, kids should be quite aware of IT since childhood. So the principle of moderation and traditional upbringing are of crucial importance here. Don't forget to force your kid to get a breath of fresh air more often :)
