New Game Launch - uDraw for Nintendo Wii


I was recently contacted about this great new Wii game, launched on 4th March.

Sadly, I don't have a Wii - I said, SADLY, I DON'T HAVE A WII!! But I thought the uDraw was such a brilliant idea I'd tell you about it in case you are luckier than me.

How great would it be to allow your children creative time, 'drawing' and 'painting' without all the preparation and mess to clear up afterwards?  Designed to allow kids (and adults) to let their imaginations run wild, using the tablet with the wii you can create artwork, from a simple doodle to an impressive masterpiece.

Features also allow you to print, save and export your artwork so you can easily share creations with your family.

I'm not proposing this will take over from 'real' painting. I think kids still need the experience of using real art materials, but I'm sure we've all been there, at ten-to-meal-time, when your child announces "Mummy, I want to do a picture".

uDraw are touring the country, so if there's a location listed near you, why not pop along to see it in action:

High Cross Centre, Leicester 11th-13th March
Brent Cross, London 18th-20th March
West Quay, Southampton 25th=27th March
Whitgift Centre, Croyden 1st-3rd April
Bluewater, Essex 7th-10th April
White Rose, Leeds 14-17th April
Trafford Centre, Manchester 20th-23rd April
Arndale Centre, Manchester 27th April-1st May
Meadowhall, Sheffield 5th-8th May

The tablet and studio retails at £49.99 and is available nationwide.

They also have a Facebook page where you can share your creations and keep up with all the new.

Disclosure: I have not received any payment, financial or otherwise to promote this product.


  1. This looks fab and I am sure I would love it as much as Baba would xx

  3. Makes an Etch-a-sketch look very crappy! Want one! :O)
