Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really relaxing but small! Its not really helping me "let go" but it is fun and oddly satisfying to watch the image disappear. I just recommend spending the extra money and getting the bigger size as this really is mini in comparison.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved this! Though I didn't find that it helped with "letting go", I do enjoy using it and watching my strokes disappear. It beautiful, soothing, and is so awesome to show your friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mini is a bit small I would go with the original size. This mini version can be a bit small, even for children. It's nice to have the space to draw and write at the same time. Creativity!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Environmentally friendly Received this as a gift, which I plan on regifting. I love the idea of letting go. It's a great way for children to scribble down their creativity and then let it go. Actually it's a great for family activities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to the Original for Small Spaces I have the Original Buddha Board and really love it, but it takes up quite a bit of space. I bought this to replace it. It is just as good but much smaller. It's very relaxing and good for mindfulness practices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice travel option I bought this as a toy for my daughter (she's 2) but it may be too small for her current motor skills. Exchanging for the larger one! But this is a really nice travel option for kids probably over the age of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely concept My mom and daughter brought this home after being out shopping. I had seen them before but hadn't really paid much attention. It was fun to play with but I really didn't get the true concept behind this product until reading more about them. I've been practicing meditation for some time now as a way to deal with stress and anxiety. One of the concepts is learning to detach or being able to let go of past events, people, our stories we tell ourselves, trying to predict the future, etc. Apart from being a novel product, when used with the true intention behind its design, it really supports the practice of the 'art of letting go', which when we can learn to do this, can ease so much suffering. I can see the novelty wearing off this product but at the same time it's something we can return to anytime to enjoy a little moment of peace and clarity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Calming This really does help calm and de-stress my life - even just momentarily. It's a great size, big enough to write/draw large images, and small enough to not take up too much room on a desk. Good quality board and brush too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zen I received this as a gift and brought it to my office at work. At first I never used it, it sat on my desk staring at me. One day I felt an immense amount of stress and glanced over at it. It was as if it was saying, "come on, you can do this". I started drawing lines and circles for a few days and now I am so shocked of how I never included taking a couple of moments to use it. I am now looking forward to purchasing the larger size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Make Sure You're Going to Use It While I liked the idea of the Buhda board it didn't work very well for my family. After a very short period of time no one used it and eventually it got forgotten about entirely. Only buy this if you are really certain you're going to be using it consistantly. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun & Practical I was given one of these as a gift months ago, and just had to buy one for my sister for Christmas. It is very soothing to watch things you write (which are bothering you) slowly disappear in front of your eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed My husband bought me one of these delightful boards for Christmas.  I am an introvert, and sometimes just need a few minutes to let my mind wander.  After he'd set it up for me, I spend over an hour just exploring what it can do.  Yes, you have to be careful how much water to use on the board and in the tray. But the instructions clearly state all of this
Date published: 2014-01-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from unique product Bought this for my 10 year old this Christmas and she absolutely loved it! She had no idea what it was but once it was opened and the purpose was explained to her she was obsessed and absolutely loves it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly helps you master the "art of letting go" The Buddha Board is perfect at what it does... that is, to help you master the art of letting go. You dip the brush in water and place it on the board - and what ever you draw or write magically turns into this vivid black... like black paint on canvas (I was very surprised at the vivid colour! it doesn't look 'watery' or washed out at all), and just as magically, disappears within a few minutes of you drawing/writing it. A meditative experience for me personally, because I naturally criticize any thing I put down as 'art'. But because anything you paint or draw on the Buddha Board disappears within a few minutes, you're not left with with any inhibitions, and you're not left with anything there to pick at or doubt yourself over. I would give it five stars, but I must admit it is a bit flimsy (one or two brush bristles came out on the first day of using it) and you have to be careful about of how much water you put in the water dish/stand (there has been reviews of the bottom of the board getting damaged because of this). But other than that, I am very pleased with this product. I would definitely recommend it. Would be a great conversation starter (or communal art project!) at the coffee table with friends and family, and also great for little kids.. you're not wasting any paper, and there is no ink to get messy with! Just plain ol' water and joy for art ;-)
