    What It Is
    Crayola's Color Alive line features coloring books that kids can color using special crayons and then bring to life through the free Color Alive app. The line includes four coloring book themes: Mythical Creatures, Enchanted Forest, Barbie, and Skylanders. Each coloring book, sold separately, includes 16 pages and seven Crayola crayons, including one new color with special virtual color effects.

    The first time you use the free Color Alive app, you'll need to scan in the special effects crayon from your coloring book to unlock the virtual coloring effect. It will remain unlocked from then on. Color a page in the coloring book, making sure to use the special effects crayon somewhere on the page, and then scan your colored page into the app. Tap on the crayon button to see the special effect appear on the screen. For example, sparkles appear on the Barbie coloring pages and fire appears on the Mythical Creatures coloring pages. Kids can also tap the 4D button to bring the character on the colored page to life, complete with motion and sound. Take and save pictures of the digital character, and come back and play with saved characters even without the coloring book.

    Is It Fun?
    The Color Alive line brings a digital upgrade to the classic play pattern of coloring books. Kids will like watching what they've colored come to life and interacting with these unique digital characters.

    Who It’s For
    Color Alive Mythical Creatures is for ages 4 and up.

    What To Be Aware Of
    The Color Alive app is compatible with iOS, Windows, and Android smartphones and tablets, and iPod Touch. The Color Alive app, while free, does offer in-app purchases, but parents can turn off in-app purchases through their device's settings.
