Holiday Gift Guide 2014
Crayola has been bringing children fun, great products for many many years. I always have been a big fan of Crayola from their crayons to their art products. My parents never bought me any other kind of crayons or markers besides Crayola. My mom is a brand snob and I typically try to buy only what is on sale, however, when it comes to Crayola products I can completely understand why she always chose Crayola products for us.
I recently had the opportunity to review a few of Crayola products that I felt would be of interest to all of you. These are some fun products that I think would make a great gift for the holiday season.
Crayola Virtual Design Pro has everything you can imagine to create a virtual fashion show. The Fashion Collection includes a 20 page book with fashion templates, colored pencils, markers, stencils, and pencil sharpener. All the supplies fit into a stylish case to keep everything intact and organized. In addition, the set includes software to bring the creations to life. The Virtual Fashion Show App is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. It also will work with iPod touch. To check compatibility visit Crayola.com/appcheck You can print off additional templates for free from the app. There are additional fashions, including male fashions.
My daughter loves to play all the fashion design games on the computer. Now with Virtual Design Pro she can have her own fashion show. Design on paper and customize the templates with your own patterns, colors, styles and compositions. Using your imagination and creativity the options are limitless. When you finish your design, it is time to bring it to life. Using a compatible device scan the design into the My Virtual Fashion Show app. Next, the design then appears on the virtual model.
This is where my daughter has a lot of fun. You can customize the designs within the app and choose the model’s shoes, accessories, hair and skin tone. You can also pick the location on the runway show. Once that is completed it is time to watch your model do the virtual walk on the runway! To make the product even more fun you can share your creation with your family and friends! Simply, email them directly from the app and your friends can see what you have created.
Crayola makes an array of products that are perfect for stocking stuffers. I remember waking up on Christmas tearing through my stocking to find lots of Crayola products. Now today they even have a wider variety and of course their traditional products that are always fun. Crayola markers last for a long time and do not wear down after multiple uses. In addition, I find their crayons are very durable and do not break easy. Kids can have fun with the Cool Blue Sky, Chalk or make crafts using the glittery glitter glue.
Color Wonder products are fun and mess free as they only work on Color Wonder paper. There is many different varieties of Color Wonder coloring pads and different style markers. These would make perfect stocking stuffers.
The Pip Squeak Markers in Disguise are cute figure markers that have quite a personality. You can change their feet, arms, hair and accessories and have fun creating new characters.
These are just a handful of products that are fun from Crayola. You can find more at nationwide retailers and on Crayola.com
