There are many coloring apps on App Store, most of them are about the same. When I first saw the app title, I did not pay much attention – just another coloring app. But once I started the app, I was quite impressed by the options it has. Picotoons Coloring Books is a coloring app designed for kids 5 and older, with many options that will bring out your child’s greatest imagination and creativity.
There are 6 coloring books in the app, each books has about 20 professional drawn pictures. The 6 books are of different themes, covering various interest areas: Animals, Occupations, Fairies and friends, Robots, Creatures (or Monsters), and a sketchbook where kids can create their own pictures in different frames or on pictures with only a part drawn, such as a nose or two eyes.
Kids can choose any book and then pick a picture from the book to color on. The coloring options are amazing!
There are 5 simulated drawing tools: Pencil, Crayon, Brush, Spray, and Marker. Under each option, there are over 100 different colors and patterns to choose from.
Kids will love the Magic Particles Tool. It allows them to draw with over 30 particles, like: bubbles, grass, fur, leaves, stars, snow, raindrops. It is fun to watch the pretty leaves, stars, snowflakes to appear on the painting under your finger.
Since it is designed for kids age 5 and older, there are some advanced options for older kids who have better finger maneuver ability. For example, kids can fill in the color in a much smaller area.
Kids can also use stickers, add letters and numbers in the pictures. There are about 90 stickers in the app. Kids can re-size or rotate the stickers, letters and numbers; choose different colors and patterns for letters and numbers; and move the stickers, letters and numbers to different locations on the pictures.
Parents can access the locked Setting within the app by solving a math problem. In the setting, parents can read instructions on how to use the app, turn the background sound on and off, decide if you want to automatically save all your kids’ drawings in the galley within the app, if you want your child access the device’s camera roll, and more.
PicoToons Coloring Books is a coloring app designed for kids age 5 and up, although there are pictures and options that younger kids will enjoy too. The many coloring options and the sophisticate level of the pictures are going to keep older kids interested and engaged. It is a great app to encourage creativity and imagination, and it is going to grow with your child for many years.
