EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Help preschoolers draw shapes, objects, animals, and more with the DigiArt Color by Lights. By following light-up dots on the board, kids can trace to draw or be guided by the lights to color on Magic Coloring Pages. Fifty coloring pages plus 10 blank pages and six crayons are included. You also get a stencil card that serves as a cover for storage on the back of the unit.

The Magic Coloring Pages are a lot of fun. Slide one into the board, and it will recognize the page, then guide you through the process of coloring it using voice instructions and light-up dots. There are three types of pictures with different skill levels: basic coloring pages, hidden picture pages where you color the picture to make a hidden object appear, and lines exercises. 

Kids can also use the blank side of each coloring page or the included blank pages to practice drawing 12 shapes, 30 objects, and 30 animals. Just follow the lights to connect the dots and draw.

And in Free Play mode, you can simply draw whatever you want on a blank piece of paper as music plays and the light-up dots go through different animations.

The board itself is a white board surface, so you could also use a dry-erase marker or water-based marker, each sold separately, to draw write on the board's surface. You can also download extra Magic Coloring Pages from the VTech website.

Is It Fun?

This is a creative new method of coloring that helps preschoolers with color matching, shape recognition, and just learning how to draw. It makes it easy for kids to draw and color cool works of art and get creative.

Who It’s For

DigiArt Color by Lights is for ages 3 to 6. It will be a fun way to help creative kids learn to draw shapes, objects, and more.

What To Be Aware Of

The toy comes with two AA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so you'll want to replace them before you play for best results.

A clip on the board keeps the paper in place as kids play.

This toy does have volume control.

Extra Magic Coloring Pages can be downloaded from vtechkids.com/colorbylights.
