Crayola's DigiTools Effects Pack Lets Kids Paint Without the Mess!

Here comes more artistic fun for you iPad! Remember crayons from Crayola? This company is a survivor that thinks outside the box, recently developing a whole canvas of creative digital design tools, most recently the DigiTools Effects Pack ($39.99).

With Digitools Effect Pack, you can use your finger or stylus to control colored pencils, crayons, and markers with a color changer. You can create dazzling effects and colorful designs. It also has a digital stamper for even more design effects.

The software comes with the Crayola Effects app as a free add on that offers pages of line art to color and digital stamps to manipulate.

One thing I appreciate is that kids can be artistically creative without creating a mess. No need to worry about them getting paint or pieces of crayons on the floor. There should be less inclination to decorate the walls. And of course, you can always print out the results and put them on the refrigerator.

Here is a video that shows the Effects Pack in action: 

Note that the product only works on iPads with iOS 4.3 and above. The suggested retail price for this box of fun is $39.99, but you can get it on Amazon for $14. 

In closing, I have to say that while this product is meant for kids, it is fun for big kids too.
