Painting Lulu Review

on September 10, 2016

So my kids have been fascinated for the past 2 days with a new app called Painting Lulu. A friend recommended the app to me for Baby Girl (six years old), who loves to color and draw.

What is Painting Lulu you ask? (And so you should)

Well, it’s a really great way to engage your children in creative activities (and not just because you want time to yourself with a glass of wine). Basically, you download the app of the coloring pages your child wants to use (i.e. My Little Pony, Barbie, Transformers, etc). Then, simply choose the coloring pages option and select a picture to color on screen. In this option, they can also take a picture of an object or person and turn it into a picture that they can then color.

Also available for purchase from Painting Lulu (www.paintinglulu.com) is a coloring book with “paper to digital” pages that can be colored on and then scanned (using the app) to a mobile device. From there, kids can continue to color on screen. A crayon shaped stylus is provided with the coloring book which is small enough for little hands and made of a very flexible material that makes it easy to hold. They come in different colors and won’t damage the screen if your child is overcome with excitement.

Wait…is that just my kids?

In the page scanner option, they can scan a page from their coloring book, which will then appear in the app and allow them to color right on the screen.

The photo booth option takes it one step further by enabling your kids to take a selfie and upload it into the app with one of the characters from the coloring book. Did I mention they can color that on screen too?

The color options are very vast, with varying shades of greens, reds, blues, and so on and there is the option to use a crayon, paintbrush or marker effect. This makes it easy to create several different masterpieces with just one picture. But there are a variety of pictures available, so the outcome is really only limited by your child’s imagination!

By the way…the kids can save their pictures in an online gallery.

Baby Girl loves this app and even my very sophisticated Diva girl who at nine, is now too cool to like the same things as her younger sister; was engaged for an hour just trying the different effects. A certain adult that shall remain nameless had some fun too. (No, I’m not telling you my name)

 

What my kids loved about it:

  1. The crayon shaped stylus – comfortable for small hands and easy to use
  2. Multiple coloring options including crayons, markers or painting in a gazillion colors (yes, I said gazillion!)

 

What my kids would change:

  1. The trash can icon should be moved to another page to avoid accidental deletion. We had a few broken hearted moments when they lost their first masterpieces.

Overall, both my kids and I think this is a really fun app. You should check  out the fun at www.paintinglulu.com!
