The Crayola Color Alive App brings two things together that my daughter loves to do, coloring and playing on her tablet. I like it because it's something we can do together, and it helps her use her creative side when coloring in the books. With a special set of coloring pages you can color, and then "bring to life" your favorite characters. It's really cool how you can make the characters move through the use of the Crayola Color Alive App. There's even pages you can print out so you can test it out for yourself right in the app. Then when you are ready to expand you can purchase full coloring books that even come with a special crayon that unlocks special virtual effects.
My daughter was super excited to see that Monster High was included as one of the characters she could color and animate. She didn't even color the full page she was so excited to get it paired up with the app and make her doll come to life. I have to admit it was pretty cool. It was so cool that when my set of coloring books arrived my 15 year old son even wanted to check them out.
Allowing fans to see their favorite character come to life on screen, exactly as they have created them on the coloring pages, the app combines the traditional coloring experience with the most advanced 4D technology. How?
**The Color Alive! eye-popping adventure begins by printing and taking colored
crayons to the coloring pages from the app or Crayola Color Alive! Action Coloring
Books. The app is from DAQRI, the industry leader in augmented reality.
**Once colored, in app mode aim the mobile device’s camera at the colored page, tap
and the character bursts to the screen in multiple 4D animated sequences, complete
with the colors and designs from the artist’s printed page.
