1. Little Tikes Double Sided Doodle Board ($19.95)
(Ages 36 months-15 years)
Tentative toddlers and seasoned doodlers alike will love this sturdy plastic doodle board. It has a chalkboard on one side, ruled for practicing penmanship (and complete with compartment for chalk and an eraser) and a magnetic drawing board on the other (along with a “pen” and three magnetic shapes). Doodle a design, and then when you’re ready to start over—whoosh, just pull the lever on the side to wipe the screen clean.
