B. Creative- You Hue

My kids love to draw and color at our coffee table....the problem is, with so many kids there isn't much room for everyone to get comfortable! The You Hue has helped with our space issues and has allowed Gavin to have his very own coloring table whenever he wants! 

B.'s You Hue is a good sized over-the-lap desk/table. It isn't too big (or heavy), and yet it is large enough to even fit over my lap! The You Hue comes with 10 non-toxic washable markers, too!  

Gavin, who is 7 years old, really likes having his space to color and he really enjoys the You Hue. We do wish there was enough holes to fit all the markers in the top, but the side compartments hold the extra markers easily enough.

The markers don't have traditional color names on them. Instead, they have names like B. Sunny (yellow) and B. Firery (red). We have found that the blue marker (B. Deep) is difficult to wash off. I still have a nice blue mark on my hand from earlier today... but the other colors seem to wash off like expected.

We did find an "off label" use for the You Hue. It is perfect for a breakfast in bed... or a sick kiddo in bed! The You Hue's age range is 2 to 10 years old, but I don't see any reason why kids older than 10 couldn't use it. Nolyn enjoys using this as a step stool as well ( he uses everything to climb), and it has held up wonderfully! The desk surface, which lifts up to provide extra storage underneath, has gotten pulled off- but it went back on easily. I would definitely say this has stood up to the durability test that our kids can dish out!

The You Hue can be purchased at Target or some select specialty stores, for about $23.

My kids would love this! So would I -- I'm always getting on to them for coloring places that they shouldn't. Great find!
