I received ZIPIT Interactive Coloring and Activity Book for review. All Opinions are my own.
As much as I push screen free play during the school week, I still love technology and letting my kids experience it. The new ZIPIT Interactive Coloring and Activity Book does just that.
These books have changed Lincoln. My girls all love coloring, but Lincoln never has. Until we opened the ZIPIT Interactive Coloring and Activity Books. The pictures themselves were fun and held the attention of all the kids. The real fun began when they realized coloring meant they could also get on an electronic.
Lincoln was especially drawn to these fun books. All I had to do was tell him he had to color the picture first, and he needed to not scribble on it – at least the best a 5year old can do – and then I’d show him just how cool the rest of it was. Worked like a charm. We spent a good amount of time coloring together. Mostly him dictating what colors and spaces I was allowed to work in.
Taking photos of apps turns out is really not that easy…but what you are seeing here is a page Rosalina was working on. After coloring the monster she added the sun sticker, then snapped a photo with the ZIPIT App. The sun sticker became interactive, and many other virtual stickers popped up that she could then add to her photo. It’s really a cool book and app combo that my kids are absolutely loving.
Since my photo skills are lacking, here’s a video straight from Zipit that shows how it all works.
