"My Coloring Thing" by Pixelated Press Review/Giveaway and COUPON CODE !

I am so excited to share with my readers today this amazing new program from Pixelated Press !
It is called "My Coloring Thing" and it is wonderful. My children, and I must admit -myself, have been having a total BLAST playing with these and creating so many versions and so many pictures. This is an "interactive computerized coloring book" for kids of all ages. The various kits include Zoo Animals, Musical instruments, Favorite Dogs,
ballerina/tomboys, super heroes, archangels, "The Things We Feel" (emotions) and more to come in this expanding library. I assure you the brilliant colors and ease of "painting" will keep your children's attention for hours!

Since there are so many options to choose from your children will not get bored easily.
My older sons favorites were the Musical Instruments because they both play (one violin and one viola) and I love the fact that they learn while they are coloring and also can hear what the instruments sound like and the music. My daughter who is 3 loves the zoo animals one. She loves to use her creativity and color the lion green (her favorite color) and flamingos orange, just for fun. Plus she is learning the sounds and fun facts about the animals too.
And me, well, I love them all !!

I also love that I can print the pictures my children make, I can save them, they can erase and start all over again. It is so much fun. (have I said it is fun yet?)

It is the best way to learn, while having fun !

FEATURES:
MY COLORING THING (MCT) is easy to use, but also jam-packed with features for both kids and parents. Enjoy coloring, music and learning in a fun to use interface. Or print out the line art to color on paper!

GENERAL FEATURES:

For All Your Artists My Coloring Thing is designed to work with as many children (or adults!) as you may have in your family. Each gets their own User Name so everyone can color their own copies of the images. You never have to worry that Sally will draw over Bobby’s work, it’s all kept separate. Add New Coloring Kits Choose from our growing library of new coloring kits, and add them to your child’s collection. Each contains 10 images, 10 matching musical scores, and 10 matching Fun Facts for hours of enjoyment. Instant Save MCT auto-saves all art as it’s created. So you never have to worry about losing your child’s work. Child-Safe Computers MCT makes it safe to put your young child on your expensive computer without worries. Once the parent logs the child into their own User Name, the child will not be able to exit or access any other program or desktop. Application switching is also disabled while in MCT. Your computer is password protected and its files are kept safe! Internet Child Safety Unlike some online coloring options, MCT keeps your child OFF OF THE INTERNET and away from adult content.

PAINTING FEATURES:

Simple For All Ages MCT has the most elegant and easy to use interface you will ever find. Perfect for the young artist! Pick a color, pick a brush, pick the image you want to color. Start having fun! Designed For Learning MCT intentionally omits painting tools like fill buckets and instead asks the child to use and develop their eye-hand coordination and motor skills. The benefits are tremendous!

My 4.5 yr old son and I tried MCT and found it difficult to color with the mouse and brushes...so we printed the demo pictures,but he needed a break and didn't feel like coloring anymore.
