Kit-A-Day Giveaway: Drawdio Fun Packs

Kit-A-Day Giveaway: Drawdio Fun Packs

We’re giving away amazing kits from our new Make: Ultimate Kit Guide EVERY DAY — thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including MakerBots!

To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.

Today’s giveaway item is for not one but two Drawdio Fun Packs (a $49.98 value.) We’re giving them away as a pair so you can enjoy them with a friend or with your kids. Here’s a snippet of the review from the issue:

Drawdio is an electronic pencil that lets you make music while you draw. It’s a great project for beginners: an easy kit with instant gratification. Invented by Jay Silver, it’s a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create sounds. The result is a fun toy that lets you draw “musical instruments” on any piece of paper.

To be eligible for today’s giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below in this post. The entry period for today’s prize will be until 11:59pm PST tonight. We’ll choose one person at random, you’ll be notified by email, and you’ll have 48 hours to respond. The Winners List is kept on the Giveaway landing page. That’s it! No purchase necessary or anything else to do. Please leave only one comment per post. You can enter as many giveaways as you like until you win. This giveaway is for US residents only. You also must be 18 years old to enter (Kids: Ask your parents to enter). See the Kit-A-Day Giveaway landing page for full sweepstakes details and Official Rules.

Day 3 and 4 Giveaways: The Day 3 winner has been notified. They have 24 hours left to respond.  The winner of Day 4 has been notified. They have 48 hours left to respond.

    I actually almost bought this the other day.  But then I realized it would make a horrible Christmas present for my nephew who is too young to understand it.  And an even worse present for his parents.  Still, it would be fun.

    Drawdio seems like a neat little toy. I kind of always overlooked it… for some reason I thought you -had- to etch over your graphite pencil lines (and so I thought you had to keep scratching paper with it). I just googled an excellent video for it, and it’s really a theramin, working on a lot of different surfaces/contacts. Think I’ll be building one of these even if I don’t win…

When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
