Crayola Virtual Design Pro Car Collection
( Crayola $29.99 Score: )

Car designers of the future are going to get their start with this virtual design kit. The kit comes with a 20 page car design book, 36 colored pencils, 20 super tip markers, 4 stencils and a pencil sharpener. After they color one of the 20 pages of racing vehicles they take a photo with a smart phone or tablet and using the app they can further customize their car and drive it on a stunt track on their phone or tablet. Although the payoff is in watching their designs come to life on the screen, the actual designing is done without the need to use the tablet. It is done by hand and puts some of those old eye-hand skills to use along with artistic expression.  They say 6 & up, but our 7-year old tester found that making some of the on-screen tricks pretty challenging. Also, putting names on the vehicles is tricky since the word prints correctly on one side of the vehicle but backwards on the other side. We think this kit will be better for slightly older kids. We discovered that other markers work just fine and you can print new templates directly from the app (no charge) so you always have more options and don't have to buy new notebooks in order to continue to create.
