I purchased the Crayola Marker Airbrush for my 4-year-old for Christmas. I suspected it would not be something she would be able to use without Mom or Dad's constant help, and I was right. The air tank runs out VERY quickly, and needs to be pumped constantly. The other problem with this product is that the marker insertion is very difficult and extremely touchy---the markers are usually inserted either too far (causes the marker ink to pool up and bubble), or not far enough (no ink comes out). A young child can't change out the markers by him or herself. On the upside, I only paid $10 for the product, which I think is fair. And, when the product is working properly, it is fun to use, and my daughter was able to make some really nice artwork using the included stencils. We just have to set aside time to sit with her to help pump up the tank and swap out the markers as she needs them, so her use of it is somewhat limited.
