Crayola sent us a bunch of free art supplies including their brand new Colors of the World crayons so that we could make our True Selfies. Opinions are our own.Crayola has created the Colors of the World crayon packs so that kids (and kids at heart) everywhere can truly represent themselves in their skin tone. With the 24 pack there are the 24 skin tones and in the 32 pack there are the 24 skin tones plus 4 hair color and 4 eye color crayons. The crayons include colors like Rose, Almond and Golden from Lightest to Deepest.

Colors of the World

I was asked to work with the kids to create their True Selfie and with that we used the Crayola Camera Color app which takes photos and making them black and white for coloring. I took the photos of the kids and then we converted them and printed them so the kids could color them. They took great care in determining which crayon best represented their skin tones.

We were given a case of Fungisaurs for free to unbox and review. Opinions are our own.

Here’s an interesting idea. What if you take dinosaurs and cross them with Mushrooms. That’s how you get Fungisaurs. These are cute collectible figures are great fun for dinosaur loving and science loving kids alike. These edutaining toys help kids learn about biodiversity, dinosaurs and mushrooms all in one. In addition to the toys being collectible there is also a robust app and a full website with even more information. Kids can use their fungisaurs to learn about the worl around them. They can also take their fungisaurs on fun outdoor adventures.

We received a 12 pack of Fungisaurs so that we were guaranteed a full set of the 8 Fungisaurs from series one. They were, Bracko, C-Rex, Chick-Rap, Paradots, Pterocap, Sailamander, Scaly-Anky and Trishroomops. Each Fungisaur is a combination of one dinosaur with one type of mushroom. I thought the idea was fantastic when I first heard of them and out of all the different ones my favorite is Trishroomops. Triceratops has always been my favorite dinosaur. Although, Andy seems to think that I would rather spend more time with the Chickraps.
