I came home from the store with three coloring books for our boys. I figured the three littlest ones would be most interested. I had no idea the 14 year old would want one, too.
I take them out of the bag and they all say, “Color Alive? How did you know about Color Alive, Mom?”.
“How do I know about Color Alive? How did YOU guys know about Crayola Color Alive….. this is a brand new product… “
Apparently they’ve seen the commercials. Let me tell you, this is a coloring book like you have never ever seen before. It’s an experience.
Needless to say, the 14 year old got one of the coloring books. He is kindly going to share with the 5 year old.
Just download the Color Alive app from the app store on your tablet, mobile phone or iPod Touch. The app is free.
Once it is downloaded you just click Lets Get Started. Get ready for some Action coloring pages like you’ve never seen before!
Point the camera of the device at the coloring page. If you’ve colored the page these colors will reflect, otherwise, it will just be the black and white image like we have here in this picture.
Hit the 4D button… and boom….
It converts… into the image on the coloring page but in 4D form. And you can move it around!
It is so easy to install and interact with that while myself and one of the 9 year old twins were getting this set up on the mobile phone, the other twin grabbed his Kindle and found the app and downloaded it.
Once you absorb all of the coolness about this coloring book, sit down and color one of the pages…. like our 14 year old did.
Then point the device at it…. wait for it….
A dragon that he can lift off the page and move it around. Watch out Luke, the dragon is right beside you!
Talk about changing coloring forever! We all just played with this in awe for the longest time. Bring your coloring to life like you’ve never done before! Even my husband was impressed.
Right now, you can get Color Alive in four coloring books: Skylanders™, Barbie™, Enchanted Garden™ and Mythical Creatures™. Each book contains 16 coloring pages, each featuring a unique character and animation, and comes with seven crayons, including one Magic Crayon that unlocks a special virtual effect such as Fire-Breath and Pixie Dust.
I grabbed these at Target.

Go. Get these. Put them in your kiddos Easter Baskets! They will be amazed and impressed. You will thank me later.
