Found 21st Feb 2011
Ok sorry about the below but I am struggling to explain.
My son is into drawing at the moment and also likes to copy pictures from magazines etc.
I remember years ago a tool which you could use to copy pictures.
It had a number of levered bits with two ends. One has a pen in the other a "fake" pen.
What you would do would trace the picture from the book using the fake pen and the other end would "copy" onto a piece of paper which was next to the drawing.
Apologies for random explaination above but I have googled loads of things but cant get any results.
Any help appreciated

I can see that appealing to children,but not heard of it. I could only suggest tracing paper as an alternative.

Looks good.Has anyone purchased from this site before ? I just wondered if it was an OK site.
Are they based in Hong Kong?

I've remembered that my son has a Magic Tracer which is quite good.
Its a different thing altogether but produces great results

P.S For some reason my link goes to the Amazon main page instead of the product page.
If you search for Magic Tracer you should find it.
