It stimulates your imagination and gives you opportunities to be creative. It's not just for kids.
I was so excited when I received this, that I started coloring in it straight away.
It works with my faber castell pit artist coloring markers but not the copic markers. Copics bleed through this paper. The paper is quite thick, but only my faber castells don't bleed through them. I haven't tested this with other markers.
It would be even more perfect if I could use my Copics and if the book had more pages. But it's awesome already.
The pictures could be appropriate for boys and girls. But I think that it seems catered more to girls than boys.
N.B. I bought this with the Mr. Sketch thin markers, and the receiver of this gift is a lady in her 50's.
Better than same old same old color books. Gets the cobwebs out of your creative brain. Recommended
I don't really enjoy the pages where you are expected to draw in yourself or the very complicated drawings. I really enjoy the simpler animal pages the best. I would love a book with just those.
The coloring book arrived in perfect shape

It is a high quality colouring book that has a host of activities and pictures to colour in. Suitable for both children and adults.
Some of the things you will be asked to do are:
- complete some drawings of robots and draw some more of your own
- doodle spider and flies in a spiders wed
- doodle wigs on people's heads
- doodle some windows on sky scrapers and add trees surrounding the picture
- draw birds in the bird cages outlined
- draw lanes and cars in a traffic jam
- turn shapes into bugs
- draw a treasure map
There are also pages just to colour in too.
The range of pictures (buildings, underground tunnels, animals, people etc),
the detail & variety of styles,
the way some pages are for colouring & others just start you off with a few lines or shapes.
I bought this for my 6 year old (who thinks drawing is for girls) and it has bought me quiet time! Although, he does find much to talk about in the pictures.
If you've ever said to your child 'why don't you draw me a picture?' and the reply has been 'I don't know what to draw' this is your book. It's also quite thick so the price is reasonable. I've bought 2 more copies to give as Xmas presents confident both kids & parents will be happy :)
