If you or your kids are tired of the usual coloring books, why don’t you try the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Collection? This is a spin on the traditional coloring books, since it lets kids design and create, then watch their creations come to life virtually on their smartphone or tablet. Currently, there are two collections available: the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Car Collection and the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Fashion Collection.
Both the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Car Collection and Pro Fashion Collection are going to be sold for $39.99.
Who Would Buy This?
If your kids love to color or design cars or dresses and clothes, the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Collection will be perfect for them. Not only is it fun to use, it is also a good way for them to learn the basics of design. Hobbyists will also find they can spend a lot of time using these design kits.
Things We Like
Crayola covered all its bases by making sure to churn out Crayola Virtual Design Pro Collection kits for both boys (the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Car Collection) and girls (the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Fashion Collection). Other coloring kits can be quite limiting since they are mainly for boys, or for girls, and that is not going to be a problem at all with this collection.
Of course, the concept of creating a design by hand and bringing it to life on a smartphone or a tablet is quite innovative, considering how almost everything today is enjoyed in this manner. It’s a case of old-school meeting new technology. Using the dozens of markers and colored pencils and a special sketchbook, designing using the provided templates is very easy. Just by taking a snapshot or photo of the design using a tablet or smartphone (with the free app already installed), the design will come to life.
But that is not all. Once it has already been processed by the app, the design can still be tweaked and greatly enhanced!
It is both compatible with iOS and Android, so compatibility issues will never crop up. For now, there are only the two collections available, but there are rumors of more collections or coloring kits coming out in the future in the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Collection line.
Things We Don’t Like
This revolutionary product shows a lot of promise and packed with so many features that, at this time, we cannot see anything to complain about.
Crayola has not yet made any announcements on warranties and guarantees pertaining to this product.
Is It Worth The Money?
The Crayola Virtual Design Pro Collection costs $40. With its ability to engage anyone’s attention in the creative process, all the way to converting it into something virtual in a tablet or smartphone, every cent is definitely worth it.
Where Can I Buy?
The Crayola Virtual Design Pro Collection is going to be available almost everywhere, but expect to find them first in many online merchant sites, with Amazon being on top of the list.
Let your little designers-in-the-making discover the joy of creating and designing, and having the satisfaction of seeing their masterpieces brought to life, just by using the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Collection!
