What is Drawdio?
"Imagine you could draw musical instruments on normal paper with any pencil (cheap circuit thumb-tacked on) and then play them with your finger. The Drawdio circuit-craft lets you MacGuyver your everyday objects into musical instruments: paintbrushes, macaroni, trees, grandpa, even the kitchen sink..."

Drawdio fun pack comes with everything you need to recreate Drawdio fun at home. Tape the Drawdio circuit to the paintbrush that comes in the pack, and voila, you've recreated the museum exhibit. Thumbtack the circuit to a pencil, and you can draw instruments with graphite. Then keep going with your kitchen sink and everything else. Your visitors can explore, create, and invent even after they leave.
