Coming up with new ideas to keep kids busy can be tricky, especially when they're glued to electronics, so when I found OOLY, my world was rocked. OOLY creates products to inspire, explore and express, so I was so excited to try out one of the 3D Colorables.
3D Colorables are a really neat craft idea as they are multi-functional. Once you're done coloring and creating, you can inflate them and play with them! Colorables come in a variety of designs like masks, swords, action figures and a guitar. I originally thought the material of these coloring toys was plastic, but they are in fact, paper. You can color these designs with colored pencils, crayons or markers and by letting your imagination run free, you can come up with a pretty neat toy to play with.
Again, once you've finished coloring, you simply inflate the toy with the straw provided and then it's time to play! I got to try out the guitar and it was so much fun; it even came with a guitar strap so I could have an awesome jam session. The double-sided guitar has different designs on each side, so it'll be like a brand new guitar every time. The kids are sure to have a blast!
Perfect for coloring the 3D Colorables are the Rainbow Doodlers; they come in a set of 36 fabulous colors. These colored pencils twist up, so you don't have to worry about sharpening them and they're water soluble. The set also comes with a brush if you decide to do a little water coloring. The Doodlers combined with the Colorables make the perfect gift for any child, tween or teen.
