Have you been down the Crayola (Crayola on Twitter) (Crayola on Facebook) aisle at the store lately? I always take a stroll down the aisle when I am shopping. To me, arts and crafts start with Crayola: crayons, markers, paints, colored pencils, drawing pads and so much more. I was looking at the Crayola Holiday Gift Guide and drooling over the fun projects that I can do with Eva. The guide is great because you can search for gifts by age range, very helpful to find the appropriate products.
Back to the Crayola aisle int he store. There are so many cool products and many that have a High-Tech aspect to them. Now when you pick up a box of crayons or other crayola products you get to print out some special content. You can also buy a Story Studio to create a personalized story starring your child. There are three story studio versions at this time and there are Crayola Story Studios for Disney Princesses, Disney/Pixar Cars 2 and Spider-Man. We were sent those three Story Studio sets and love them. Eva enjoys being able to become a part of the story.
We also got a Crayola iMarker digital drawing tool from Griffin Technology (Griffin Technology on Facebook). This is a special stylus that works with the Crayola ColorStudio HD app for the iPad. With this device we can choose so many amazing digital tools to color in interactive coloring book pages. You can use the iMarker to select Crayons, Markers, Paints and colored pencils to use on the iPad to color pages that respond to your child’s movements with the stylus. Music and animation that they can color.

|Remember how cool it was to receive the Crayola 64 Box with the built-in sharper as a holiday gift when you were growing up? Just imagine how excited your kids will be to turn an iPad into an interactive coloring book using burnt sienna, carnation pink and a rainbow of Crayola colors from the Crayola digital 64 Box! The Crayola ColorStudio HD app and iMarker let kids´ imaginations run wild as they color moving, animated scenes that come alive with music, sound effects and hidden surprises. The app is free on iTunes App Store with the purchase of the iMarker for $29.99 at Toys R Us, Best Buy, the Apple Store and www.griffintechnology.com.
Kids can select from 64 colors in the digital Crayola 64 Box and then use the iMarker to create the look of Crayola crayons, markers, paints and colored pencils as the stylus interacts with an iPad. The digital coloring pages respond with movement and sound as the pages come alive as kids color.
Animated images stop moving on the screen so kids can easily color them in without going outside of the lines, so objects look picture perfect when they start moving again. Tidy up your page with an eraser function or an “undo” arrow that removes larger areas of color.
In addition, kids can save their work in a gallery to be emailed, printed or uploaded to Facebook (mom´s account, and with her permission and help of course!), and also free draw, play interactive games and create their own customized coloring pages they can print and color off-line.
Recommended for children ages 3+, the Crayola iMarker includes, a set of AA batteries, and free download of the ColorStudio HD app.
