Skip the mess, just go straight to disaster area

While out doing some shopping today to try to catch up after being out of town for nearly a week, I saw this at Target:


According to the packaging, this toy is supposed to offer “mess-free fingerpaint.”  What you see is some sort of paintlike substance which is under a layer of flexible vinyl, so the child can “draw” on the surface.  In theory, this should keep the room clean, but I get the sneaking suspicion that somewhere along the line, a particularly determined toddler is going to figure out how to get at the “paint” inside this thing, and the result is going to be a truly epic living room disaster.
