Partnering with Bendon, Disney has released a new Color and Play app for iOS that will have you look at coloring books in a brand new, innovative way!




With this new coloring book, kids can create their own coloring pages and bring them to life, or color story pages and interact with favorite characters such as Mickey, Doc McStuffins, Baymax, your friends from Frozen, and more! Another fantastic, amazing feature is coloring page you can print out, color, then hover your device camera over the picture to have it jump off the page. Once Elsa jumps off the page and starts throwing snow in the air, you'll never go back to a regular coloring app. But, not only are there coloring pages available, you can make interactive coloring pages and word searches.




You'll enjoy the tools you already know from similar Color and Play apps released by Disney, such as stickers, patterns, markers and so on. One of my absolute favorite tools in this version is the Magic Brush- a brush that will paint on the exact colors you'd find on the character with no mess, as it stays in the lines. After you've finished coloring your initial character, press the magic wand to bring your character to life! They'll walk to their room, where you'll find that you can personalize the entire room, either exactly the way you normally see it, or with your own new twist.


As soon as I saw Mickey come to life, I was absolutely sold! Both my daughter and I were amazed with the 4-D characters and really haven't stopped playing with this interactive coloring book. With most apps, I find that the base app is fine, and when they have in app purchases, I really don't bother buying more for one app, but for this app, I strongly recommend it! This particular app comes with a Mickey Mouse playroom and a Mickey Mouse coloring page, but as mentioned above, there are so many more characters that are so much fun to animate! Something else I absolutely loved was that each page comes with a Summer, Fall, or Winter setting, but again, it was an additional in app purchase. Along with the different seasons, you could personalize with fun stickers that you can also save in your gallery to visit later, or go back and edit any time.




I've said it before, but Disney really knows how to do these coloring books right, and partnering with Bendon only proved that they know how to do this right! You won't regret the additional purchases you make that are very reasonably priced for the amazing value you get. What are you waiting for? Try it out and see the magic for yourself!iting for? Try it out and see the magic for yourself!
