What It IsGet creative in a totally new-and totally mess-free electronic way- with Splatster, an interactive plug and play system that lets kids "paint" on TV! Splatster's software content is included in a base that plugs into a TV's RCA jack. Using the wireless brush, kids can "paint" in the air and watch their movements turn into brushstrokes on the screen. There are eight themed worlds in the Splatster game, each with unique paintbrushes, stampers, and special effects. Kids can get silly painting with spaghetti, drawing with whipped cream, or stamping an animated bat! The virtual spin art feature lets kids create fun and colorful works of art. And the Splat Arcade features three fun games with plenty of challenge to keep kids coming back for more. Built-in save and print features let kids keep and decorate with their masterpieces! The fun sound effects really make the experience a whole mess of fun, without the mess!
While this is creative and engaging play, the experience is more like playing a video game than creating with more traditional art supplies. However, this makes a nice complement to that kind of play and is entertaining and engaging. Splatster requires four AA batteries for the base unit and three AAA batteries for the brush.
