Review:

The Chalk City Road Maker allows you to make chalk roads. The hand held device holds two pieces of sidewalk chalk and when you push it along the driveway it makes a three foot wide road that is perfect for bikes, skateboards, and riding toys. You can make obstacle courses or raceways. The device is easy to use and is light enough that children can operate it themselves. The materials are held in a mesh bag for easy clean up. This product encourages outside play. It can also be used in a variety of ways- our testers made mazes, obstacle courses, and raceways for bikes, scooters and races. We've used it on small areas such as a driveway and sidewalk as well as large areas (such as the school blacktop area). We've also altered the difficulty of the raceway- sometimes making it simply one long straight road, while other times adding sharp turns and curves. Thus, I believe this item has long term playability.
