This is a nice little set I got for Christmas. It was meant for small children, but who cares. I made a decent use of it. Any artist can make a masterpiece with whatever mediums they have available. As of now, I have been using the pencils mostly. They combine well with the markers of a different set. I also did a couple of pastel drawings, like when I was small. There is just something about crayons that brings out people's inner child. If you are nostalgic for the good old days, this is the set for you. If you are a parent, then you found the ideal gift for your child. Have them indulge in a different hobby, instead of the old dusty game station.
Would a little 5 year old like this gift, or should I get something even more infantile, like with bunnies or stickers?
About a month ago, my mom had a party and one of her friends had a little 5 or 6 year old girl. I ended up having to babysit the girl. I knew she was going to want to draw at a certain point, so I already had this set prepared for her. She found the box really humoring. So, the answer is yes. It would work for a 5 year old.
Is this gift suitable for an adult type of person?
Well, my friend, when I first got this set, I not realize it was for a little kid till I opened the website. All I saw when I chose this set was everything that was included in the box. Only when I read the product description in detail, that I realized it was for a child. So, the short answer is that if you put it in a box with a bow, and don't say that it is a kid's box, it might work for a more growned up fellow. This is truer if that person is a bit of a novice in the drawing department. It certainly looks like a grown up art set, but I guess that is just me.
Is the box really made of wood? Or is it some kind of weird plastic?
The Artsy sister actually owns this set in specific, and yes, the box is really made of wood, with that nice wooden smell.
What's the shipping location of this drawing box?
The box, as well as any other sets belonging to Art 101 ships from the United States. The company is stationed there, so that is why.
Is anyone familiar with the brand that sells these art supplies?
The supplier that made this set is Art 101. They mostly produce art products for little kids. The company is from the US and it was founded in 2008.
Exactly what does the product refer to as a set of 3?
It refers to a set of three in regards to the nature of the art tools:
Set 1: Coloring pencils with eraser and sharpener.
Set 2: The crayons and pastels
Set 3: Three watercolor palletes with two brushes.
What's the quality of the wooden box?
The box is sturdy, and it protects the art supplies rather well, specially if you drop the box.
