The desk, currently $15 at Amazon, is a lightweight 2.3 lbs, and comes equipped with a set of mess-free Color Wonder Markers, Paints, and a paintbrush made especially for the included 20-page Color Wonder Drawing Pad.

The colors won’t show up on skin, fabric or furniture but only on the special paper included. (Extra paper can be ordered here.) There are compartments for the special paint, and supplies can also be stashed in the storage area underneath the desk.

Although the manufacturer’s recommended ages for the Coloring Desk is 3 years and up, many Amazon reviewers say younger children can use it, too, with parental supervision.

The Crayola Mess-Free Coloring Desk is available here.
