BEYOND CRAYONS

Crayola's new Dual-Sided Dry-Erase Board will help keep your family's schedule organized and keep everyone well-informed. It is black on one side, white on the other, and the two surfaces double the drawing area -- one side can be for family memos while the other is for tick-tac-toe. The board comes with a pack of eight Crayola Washable Dry-Erase Bright Crayons, including white for drawing on the black surface. The colors are easily cleaned off walls and clothing. They color cleanly and easily wipe off each side. The built-in storage helps keep the markers and eraser mitt within easy reach. It is recommended for ages 3-plus and costs $9.99.
