Doodle Desk is exquisite drawing surface for toddler

Stephen Hobley made this doodle desk for his toddler, using spare parts from around his garage. The stand holds a large roll of paper, which can be scrolled out to provide a continuous drawing surface for a young artist. I want one for myself!

    Imagine giving a hundred feet of drawings to your kid 30 years from now! I have very little of what I drew because it was so difficult for my parents to store my art, but the art made on this can be put in a tube, much easier than my stack and stacks of paper.
