It was a hit

1/2/2015 by Karen

I bought this as a present for a very good friend of mine, he thoroughly enjoyed it and they are possibly going to get another one for their 8 year old daughter who now says she wants one. Great unusual gift!! Highly recommend.
Delivery was rather quick, a few weeks before Christmas and i had it within a few days.

So Far so Good

I bought two of these for my two grandkids for Christmas this year so I can't comment on how they liked them or anything else but the shipping was fast and they were very well packed. After opening the box I reshipped it to my daughter's house & they were received in the same excellent condition.More > < Less


A moment of expression

We thoroughly enjoy the Buddha Board. It provides an opportunity for spontaneous artistic expression, as it is always available for a quick flick of the brush a a meditative flow. We encourage friends to try it, and they are always amazed at the results.More > < Less

About Buddha Board

Create, Reflect, Relax

It can be hard to live in the moment when we’re always juggling tasks, scheduling activities, and playing catch-up. The Buddha Board lets you slow down, let go, and savor the enjoyment of creating.

The inventor is Eric Thrall, who envisioned a way to help people embrace the Zen concept of mindfulness. His drawing board is both a meditative product and a doodling tool. When you paint on the Buddha Board surface with water, the image darkens. As the water evaporates, the artwork slowly fades. What’s left is a blank slate—literally and figuratively. When the water disappears, so do the feelings and emotions that went into the artwork, leaving the artist with a clear mind, Eric says.

Learning to appreciate change and to value the present is important for all ages. The Buddha Board is a great tool for unleashing creativity without worrying about perfection or permanence. You can create artwork or simply doodle or practice brush strokes. The art may be fleeting, but the enjoyment lingers.
