Crayola Gigantic Colouring Book
Advantages: Nice bold pictures, easy to keep in lines
Disadvantages: Poor quality paper, pen goes through
A while ago I bought my daughter some Crayola felt tip pens from Aamazon and as I had some credit in my account I decided to treat her a little and buy her some new craft and colouring items so I could get rid of some of her older things.
I decided to buy her this colouring book as being Crayola I thought it would be great quality and a lot of the colouring books she had were cheap books on mucky looking paper, the book cost about £4 which is quite a lot considering what you can pick up in the pound shops but I thought it would be worth it.
The book has a picture on the front of a cartoon like boy covered in splodges of paint and the nakme of the book is displayed, the surrounds are bright yellow in colour which is the standard Crayola colour.
The front cover of the book is made of a thin cardboard and has a glossy finish to it so I expected it to be great quality inside too however I felt that the pages were a little thin and they weren't a proper white in colour but a little off white and when my daughter colours in it in felt tip it all soaks through so the pages need to be removed so we have now decided she will only use pencils with this book.
The pad is A4 in size which is good for me as we have a set of plasric drawers to keep toys in in the front room and they will only take the depth of an A4 pad, the colouring book has 130 pages and each one of them has a large picture on it with bold black outlines. For all my daughter has always been creative she hasn't really liked colouring in ready drawn pictures previously but she likes colouring in this book and I think that is because it is easier to keep in the lines with the thick outline.
The colouring book is satifactory however for the price I paid I would have expected the pages to have been white so they look clean rather than my daughter spictures looking grubby and I would certainly have expected better quality paper. I won't be buying this again although it is an ok colouring book it is nothing special and no better quality than what you can get at the pound shops.
Summary: Buy a cheaper book
