Color & Draw invites your kids to express their creativity freely on the screen of your seven-inch Android tablet. Kids can sketch on black and white backgrounds or color in 50 exquisite drawings of fun topics including animals, professions, and landscapes.
Traditional digital drawing pads and coloring-book apps can be off-putting for kids. A coloring-book that just asks children to tap a color and shape to automatically color it in can instill passivity. On the other hand, apps that only offer blank pages for freehand drawing can be a little intimidating for the youngest children, leaving them asking: "Dad, what do I draw now?" and "Mom, what am I supposed to do here?"
Unlike those traditional drawing and coloring apps, Color & Draw harnesses the possibilities of the touch screen environment and audio to engage with kids' creativity. The app boasts beautifully crafted, specially designed springboard drawings, voice recorded invitations for all drawing for children to add to or complete the drawings, a lovely color palette, multiple stroke and erasers, and stickers. Each illustration presents an opportunity to enhance both skills and imagination. The drawings are simple enough for young children to explore, engage with, and build on. The coloring pages feature voice over invitations to get youngsters' creative juices flowing. The voice prompt invitations give kids the right balance between guidance and autonomy—that is, the space to have fun to making art. Kids or parents can then share their creations via email or save them to your Android device's gallery.PLEASE NOTE: This app lets you purchase digital content using actual money. You can configure parental controls for in-app purchases, which will require your Amazon account password or a 4-digit PIN, by going to the Settings menu from within the Amazon Appstore.
My toddler loves to sit and color with this program. It has many choices of pictures for her to choose from, and she can also start with a blank page and draw anything she wants. I do wish there was a feature that let us erase the coloring from a page and start fresh without backing up and starting over. Overall - it's great!
We have two copies of this application... both on Kindle and iPad. My daughter loves this thing and the pre-inked line drawings are really cute and she loves coloring them for us. There are tons of brush types and quirky stickers that tend to overtake the child's composition once discovered.
My only issue is that on the Kindle, the application doesn't flip... it's locked into one vertical state so I'm trying to figure out how to stand it up for my daughter to play with. Same on iPad, this is an vertical only application, so orientation issues might be annoying when you first play with it.
love the coloring page pictures and the sticker option is great. however the colors to choose from are tiny colored pencils at the bottom of the screen next to all the other setting options and for young fingers Even with a stylus it very hard to get the color youre trying to tap... if they had a crayon option or even a way to enlarge the pencils & the pencils were on a different section of the screen it would be Perfect. but as it is for little chunky fingers its frustrating. Please update & offer a fix for those of us that bought rather than test drive Please !
Easy app for the kiddos to navigate. We use our Kindle during home school, it's a fantastic tool. I hand it to my 4 yr old and ask her to color quietly when my older daughter needs my attention. I suggest turning off the auto-save setting -- the masterpieces pile up quickly.
Very easy to navigate even for young children. Variety of blank coloring sheets to pick from. He is also able to draw on blank white canvas or black paper. I love that it saves automatically!! No complaints!
