The Minions Come Alive With Crayola

Minion's are everywhere and the cute little yellow, banana-loving creatures seem to have stolen everyone's heart, they are adored by children young and old. It is not often that my 12 year old and 2 year old actually like the same thing, but they both really like Minions. So when I was sent a Crayola Colour Alive Minion colouring book I knew that this would be something that they would both like and could enjoy together.

Before we were sent the Colour Alive book I had no idea what to expect and was just expecting a normal colouring-in book, when it arrived it did look just like any other colouring-in book. It came with a pack of coloured felt tip pens included and had pages of different Minion characters to colour in. But we found that Colour Alive is way cooler than just a regular colouring book as you use your smartphone or tablet to make your drawings 'come alive' in 4D. You simply download the free app from the app store or Google Play, then once you have coloured your Minion in you quickly and easily scan the image on the app and it turns into a 4D image right before your very eyes.

My two were amazed at the 4D Minions, especially my 2 year old and my 12 year old wanted to get a 'selfie' with a Minion as you can easily take photos of the images or can move them around to place them in your desired photo location. The image that 'comes alive' is actually your image that you have coloured in not some preloaded image, which just adds to the charm.

This book is so much more than just a colouring book and I am sure it would bring hours of fun for children of any ages as they colour and then watch their creation come to life with the app. With the start of the summer holidays I am sure they would make a great addition to stop any "I'm bored " moments on day's at home or whilst travelling. I really think this is such a clever product and I only wish that I was still a child myself so that I could have a turn colouring a Minion to life.

* Disclosure: We were sent this product free of charge for the purpose of this review, however, all opinions are my own.
