On the Drawing Board: Color Studio HD + iMarker from Griffin and Crayola

Kids’ art is cute, but sometimes you just might get a bit tired of picking up uncapped pentel pens and stumbling on stubbed out crayons. Take your kids to the next level of fun with Griffin’s Crayola ColorStudio HD app, an interactive ‘coloring book’ on the iPad which you can take with you anywhere you go – and a lot less messy, too.

Together with the interactive and animated coloring book sounds is a custom-built digital stylus, aptly named iMarker. By animated, kids will enjoy a moving, musical lively coloring book where images come to life at the swipe of a stylus.
