I have seen a lot of apps out there for kids and I am sure you have too, there are literally thousands. I am always trying to find ones that are truly beneficial to my child’s learning and stimulating creativity, not just something to entertain her on my phone/tablet.
I was luckily approached by Painting Lulu to review their coloring book sets and digital crayon stylus’. I was excited to try them out and also a little apprehensive – it seemed a little confusing at the outset, nonetheless we gave it a try and I am so happy we did.
“Painting Lulu is a Paper-to-Digital coloring system that includes a paper coloring book, traditional crayons, a stylus crayon, and a free coloring App. It is the only coloring set which combines pure coloring activities, both hands-on and digitally. The unique product allows kids to create their personalized coloring pages by using the Painting Lulu coloring app and their imagination.”
I am not the only one who thinks these coloring systems are fantastic; five toy industry judges have given the Painting Lulu sets awards and calling for them to be the next big thing for kids. Chosen as winners of these awards;
- 2016 National Parenting Product Awards Winner
- 2015 Dr. Toy’s Best Classic
- 2015 Creative Child Book of the Year Award
- Tillywig Toy Award Best Creative Fun Award Winner
- 2015 The Toy Insider Top Summer Toys!
The My Little Pony Coloring Book Set & Digital Crayon Stylus is the latest book offered by Painting Lulu. First came a Batman, Barbie and DC Super Friends Girls Rule set. I am so excited about the price point of these sets that I am going to tell you now, not at the end of my review like I usually do. At just $7.99 each and now available at Toys”R”Us, they’re a great quality product at an amazingly affordable price point.

Us, as parents, are able to get fun keepsakes our kids created, digitally, without the paper collecting all over the place. We are able to share this with our friends and family too, which is especially fun for our family as my parents are in South Africa.
When we initially tested out our Painting Lulu sets we did so at a family gathering and Gradie, who is three, was able to share her fun and excitement with her cousins Blake (4) and Elliot (5). I am happy to report that each one of them absolutely loved the coloring book and were blown away that they could do so much in an app that was just for them. Each parent downloaded the app easily and got signed in without any problems. Nothing about it was complicated or challenging – WIN!!!
Each set has a 32 page coloring book, a stylus which is shaped just like a crayon, and crayons for your child to enjoy. Again each set is ONLY $7.99 and I confident your kids will absolutely love it. I know that Gradie, Blake and Elliot do. They’ve had fun sharing their creations with one another since our initial play date.
As I mentioned you can now get each of the 4 Painting Lulu sets at Toys”R”Us;
