Miss O is a big technology fan. She loves to play on the computer, her tablet, or her LeapPad2. I don't typically let her play on my phone since she got her own Android tablet, the the (free from Amazon, Appstore, or Play store) Painting Lulu app wasn't compatible with hers, so we did download it onto my phone to try it. I believe it's because her tablet only has a front facing camera.
**Note: I mentioned this on Twitter and they got back to me right away saying they would look into it.

Anywho, she was so excited that she got something in the mail just for her to test!

I love that the book is based on recycling, and all the characters are recyclables or tools for recycling. The paper it is printed on is even 100% recycled.

"Is that can recycling herself?"

It can be used like any average coloring book. Each page also has a QR code that can be scanned and will open a blank coloring page. With the Painting Lulu app you can also take a picture of the image and continue coloring it with the app. You can purchase digital copies of the two additional coloring books through the app, or purchase a print copy which has a code for the digital version as well.

Since we couldn't get the Painting Lulu app on her tablet, we tried using the stylus with other coloring apps, as well as other apps. The crayon stylus seems easier for her to use than a regular stylus.  We did have some issue with her pressing to hard and the tip inverting. Wasn't really a big deal though. Overall, she loves it and I would absolutely recommend it for kids that like to color!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
