If you have a little one in your house who loves Nick Jr cartoons then this app is a must buy. Nick Jr Draw & Play is a fantastic new children’s art app featuring Dora the Explorer, Team Umizoomi, and the Bubble Guppies. Not only does this app keep kids happy playing with their favorite characters but it also features a variety of creative activities that will keep them engaged for hours. Kids can create their own masterpieces starting with a blank canvas, choosing a preset background, or selecting one of the character coloring pages. Children can then choose to color with chalk, crayon, marker, charcoal, pencil, spray paint, paintbrushes, and watercolor. After selecting which type of coloring medium they want to use, kids can select between different colors and sizes. The fun and creativity doesn’t stop there, Nick Jr Draw & Play also includes a collage maker, splatter art, and 60 animated stickers. Children can add some magic to their artwork by using the magic wand tool (magical colors turn into special effects), character fireworks, surprise blocks (surprises from characters), and bouncing balls (balls bounce around screen based on tilt of iPad). Another amazing feature of this app is that children can create their own e-cards (templates are provided) to send to family and friends. All artwork can be saved to your child’s personal art gallery or the camera roll on your device. Artwork can also be shared through email, facebook, or printing. A helpful guide is always available to instruct children on what certain tools or sections of the app do. If needed, there is also an area where children can look at examples of artwork to give them ideas for their next masterpiece. Nick Jr Draw & Play provides young children with endless possibilities for unleashing their creative sides.
