Paint-Sation is a water color paint set for kids that offers spill-proof containers. It is a four-color set with green, red, blue, and yellow paint that is stored in special containers that prevent spillage. This is achieved by bristles which hold the paint in place, even when held upside down. Also included in the set is a single paint brush and a plastic carry case.
On the good side of it, any spill-proof paint when it comes to kids is a good thing. These water-based colors should clean up off of most surfaces and fabric. It has been my experience that water colors marketed as stain-free do tend to wash out of clothing as advertised. The only combination I’d be weary of is red paint on a white material like a t-shirt or very light carpet. Otherwise, I wouldn’t worry about it staining. I also like the fact that it is a self-contained unit, where kids can use the open lid as a place to hold their artwork as they paint.
One potential “con” is the amount of paint for what you pay seems quite small. We’re talking about $30 for 4 small water color paints. I don’t know if other paints can be used in the container once the color is exhausted, as not all water colors have the same texture or consistency. It probably would have been nice for them to include four brushes, although that’s a minor point.
Overall, I like Paint-Sation, despite its high price. I think those who purchase it will enjoy it – while it lasts.
If the cost of Paint-Sation is a concern, you could get some inexpensive spill-proof paint cups, which fun about $8. There’s also a product by Discovery Kids called “No-Spill Paint Pot & Brush Set” which is another inexpensive option.
