Crayola Color Alive

Crayola Color Alive

Recently I saw what looked like a coloring book with a twist. The pictures come alive.

Because my granddaughter is all about all things Frozen, I selected the Frozen Crayola Color Alive.

The book came with 5 or 6 crayons in a built in holder on the back cover. Also on the back cover was a QR code.

On a rainy day when my granddaughter was visiting, we watched Frozen which I had recently saved on the Dish DVR. I brought out the coloring book. We began by scanning the QR code and downloading the free Color Alive App from the iTunes store. Next my granddaughter colored a couple of the pages.

After coloring the pictures, we tried out the app. The pages my granddaughter colored involved Anna and Elsa in a ballroom. When you held the iphone with the camera over the photo, you would see a photo of the character in the ballroom. When you touched the screen and moved your finger, the character would dance.

If you reversed the camera, like taking a selfie, the character would appear on you! Or whatever your camera was pointed at. As you can see, my granddaughter was quite amazed when her colored pages came alive.

Even though she was very distracted, she gave a great review.
