A coloring application for toddlers with a twist! It is a fun way for little kids and toddlers to color while they listen to the color or stamp that they pick as well as the name of the animal or object they are coloring. I wanted to have a way to help our kids practice their spanish vocabulary and since they love coloring, I decided to write this application. Now it also includes English and Korean words.

Designed for toddlers (I would say two and up) ; it contains 15 easy to select and easy to color pictures plus a blank page that can be used to create their own designs. Double clicking will fill in the area with the selected color and the crayon becomes thicker as you draw which allows your kids to have both fine and thick pens without explicitly having to make any selections. The stamps can be used as an easy way to decorate a picture.

As your kid selects the pictures, colors or stamps he/she will hear the Spanish/English or Korean word depending on the active language and also see the spelling so it is easy for kids to relate colors to words and learn the pronunciation. Think of it as a coloring book with spoken words.

There are a few big buttons easy to click for two year olds to save, erase, switch between languages and even take a picture to use as a background.

You can also control which languages are enabled in the settings panel, basically you can decide which languages you want your kids to practice and disable the ones that you don't.

In this version a new "Slideshow" mode has been added: When the app is in the main picture selection screen for more than 5 seconds, a slide show will automatically start. In this mode, random pictures of your kids' creations will expand and move to the center to create a slideshow and while the picture is in the main area, the corresponding word will be pronounced in one of the languages enabled.

This is a great way to see your kids' drawings as well as a way for your kids to listen to the words in different languages while they contemplate their creations!

The slideshow mode can be turned off via the settings panel.
