SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2021

One by Wacom

When you have an emerging artist at home, it can be challenging to support their talent and decide between the plethora of options for taking their drawing skills into and onto the digital world. After two months of product testing, our parent testers have a solution for you, the One by Wacom. It is the company’s least expensive entry-level option, and it is perfect for numerous reasons. Let’s start with the fact that it is specifically made for beginners to get started with digital art. It is one of the most pocket-friendly drawing tablets and is extremely easy to set up. And, the One can also be used with both a PC, Mac and Chromebook. It is relatively cheap for a drawing tablet but offers excellent accuracy and smooth cursor movement. The surface provides a slight resistance similar to what you feel when drawing on a real piece of paper, this gives you more control. You can set your drawing area the way you like it and customize the pen buttons to trigger the functionality you want. This entry-level tablet doesn’t offer all of the features other more advanced tablets have, but you’ll get everything you need to start off the right way. Parents were particularly amazed that neither the tablet nor the pencil required batteries to be changed. You charge the tablet simply by using it with the USB cable plugged in, and the pen doesn’t need batteries or charging. It works with electromagnetic resonance technology! How much more hassle-free can it get? If you are not familiar with the world of drawing tablets, they can also be used as a mouse, making them very versatile. It does require some time to get used to how it all works. Still, when you get the hang of it, it really is all very intuitive and ultimately quite satisfying. Finally, parents felt the surface was tough enough to handle scuffs and scratches without a problem.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
