Squiggle Monsters is a unique game that allows children to utilize their imagination. No plugs, no batteries, no buttons. The game itself is easy to transport so perfect for on the go and travel. It opens in a tri-fold fashion to reveal the game pieces, drawing board and six dry erase markers. The concept is simple: simply spin the three different wheels to create a squiggle monster. The first spin selector tells you what squiggle to draw. After drawing the squiggle on the drawing board, spin the other two spin selectors to decide its features. For example: The first spin might tell you to draw a "boxy" squiggle. The second spin might tell you to give it "Wild Hair" and the third selector might tell you give your Squiggle Monster "skinny arms" or a "fish body". After you draw what it asks, the right side fold out sleeve lets you name your monster and give it "Fun Facts"!

The Squiggle Monsters game is self contained. The markers are located beneath the removable drawing board and fit snuggly in their holders. This assures they will not be misplaced during transport. Each marker contains its own eraser for ease of correcting drawing mistakes or to draw a new monster creation. Each spin creates a new monster with different characteristics so it keeps a child entertained for hours!! My son had so much fun creating and experimenting with different drawing techniques and he laughed so hard filling out the "Fun Facts" and couldn't wait to show me each and every new monster creation!!  He liked the drawing aspect of the game and I liked the fact that he was using his imagination! Hours of fun guaranteed!!
