Cool but....

Very cool idea here. Unfortunately there is no chalk as others have said. Can’t even purchase anything as it looks abandoned since 2016. Otherwise needs more everything.

My three-year-olds love this app. They are big fans of coloring apps, however this one is the best because of all the interesting effects which can be applied to the picture. For example, butterflies and bumblebees may be added to the picture, and they continue to fly around the picture. The confetti effect is awesome too!
The developers may want to consider adding background music while the kids are drawing.

Not your mother's coloring book

My granddaughter has always loved coloring. She uses markers, paints and crayons. When she uses this app, she is so excited about all of the new ways to color. We have other coloring apps, but this one is her favorite, because it does so much more. With this app, she is more creative and uses her imagination to a much greater extent.
