Tiger Tribe Dot paint – review


I may just have found my all time favourite craft paints for kids!

Hamish got this pack of mess free Tiger Tribe dot paints and we took them out today for our art lesson.

What are dot paints?

Dot paints are mess free paints that are perfect for younger kids, travelling, on the go crafting and keeping your sanity while your children develop their creativity.

These  8 thick pen like paints are thick enough for little hands to grab, look like a set of markers and are neatly packaged in a bright storage box.

Why you should use Tiger Tribe Dot paints

The set of paints is perfect for kids of all ages and with no need to bring out paint brushes, water cups and aprons they are convenient to use.

The paints have a material nib, covered by a lid to stop the paint from drying out,  allowing you to shake the paint and dab it on. Best part is that the kids can’t over dab …so no mess!

Hamish was able to paint with them, use them for dot activities and colour in ( paint) his designs with ease.

A quick shake to the pen releases a little more paint, and the harder a child presses, the more the paint comes out, enhancing the already vibrant colours.

We were also able to easily mix the colours to create brown. A reminder that when mixing colours layer your lighter colours first to not change the colour on the nib of the paint pen.

The paint drys really quickly, is non toxic and washable. So no stress mom if your little one draws on that table or shirt.

These would make an amazing stocking filler and are perfect for road trips as you don’t need brushes, water cups and they can be used like markers.
