Fun app with issues
My daughter and I are huge fans of Crayola so of course we subscribed as soon as we saw this app! She totally loves it, especially the coloring and making items in the molds. However there are a couple issues that caused us to eventually cancel our subscription. One is that the app is very temperamental. Some days we just flat-out couldn’t get it to load, other days it would load very slowly, other days it was fine. The other problem we had was that it takes up TONS of room on her iPad! 3GB! This was over 3x bigger than any of her other apps and when you only have 16gb to start with, that’s huge! We would love to resume our subscription if they can streamline the app with reliable, fast loading times, and have it take up much less space.
WTH! You can’t even play without paying?! Not free!!!
**THIS IS NOT A FREE KIDS APP YOUR GREETED WITH A NON CLOSABLE SUBSCRIPTION MODEL PAGE AS SOON AS YOU OPEN THE APP & GO THROUGH THE WONDERFUL THINGS YOU CAN DO! NOT FREE AT ALL!** A one time price is great, but this is forced. Soon as you open your greeted by a screen showing you everything you can do, then your put on a subscription page & that’s where it stays there is a features button & a parent button but nothing takes u to the so called main app, so by this demo this game is subscription only or a fake or a scam. There is no free things to play with. iOS is getting as bad as Google Play. Free Apps & Games should be FREE THATS WHY IT STATES FREE NOT FREE DOWNLOAD THEN LETS FORCE A SUBSCRIPTION ON YOU AS SOON AS U ENTER!!! Crayola is terrible now heck most kids apps are not free, they take advantage of kids & do this in app junk. Can’t trust Apple iOS kid games anymore there just as bad as google plays freemium garbage. This coloring app isn’t worth paying MONTHLY especially when nothing is free to play with to start with, sorry to say but when a premium dev that used to make grand apps does this subscription junk it means they want to make money. They are hoping on a kid to download this & then see that start up video & that they can’t play & beg mommy or daddy to buy so they can play. What a joke.
A colorful, fun app for kids to learn & play!
This is a great app for kids to learn, play, and create! Coloring in this game is just like using real crayons and markers. The pets are fun to hatch, dress up, and feed. The pet music game could be a game on its own, my kids spend most of the time playing it, sooo good! The learning games are perfect for preschoolers who are just learning to read. The lab area is like you are a worker inside the Crayola factory. There are so many things to play and do. The subscription might be a big NO for a lot of parents. But there is a lot to do and my kids are enjoying it. It’s worth it as long as they continue to add new games, features, and content.
This game is horrible. In the beginning when it shows you all the features, it crashed my phone almost 10 times. After waiting patiently rebooting my phone around ten times rewatching the beginning, I get greeted to a subscription screen where you cannot exit out of till you pay for a subscription. You may think that “oh this is going to be a nice coloring book app for kids to learn in a fun way with technology” but for 4.00 dollars a month I am not paying when I could go print out pictures on a computer for a kid to draw on or go to a simple coding website for kids. ( at my school we were actually required to learn coding before going to middle school). If you just do your research you could get these same exact things from the app for free. DO NOT BY THIS APP IT IS A SCAM I REPEAT “A SCAM”
DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!!
When you first go into the app, is shows what you can do. Totally fine, right!? But then when you were done and swiped through the instructional videos, you have to pay!!! What is the point if the app is free but you need to pay for it!!!! It drove me crazy!!! I downloaded this game because I thought Crayola would not trick me and if it was free you could color free!!! Also the adds looked cool!!! But, I was wrong and you can’t do anything without paying for it!!! Instead of wasting your money, there are free coloring games for children that are expense free!!!! Do not buy the trial and do not waste your money!!!!( P.S. I did not buy the trial because I thought it Elias a waste of money!!!!Also this was the first app I ever complained about because is frustrated me so much!!!!)
First off, they don’t even let you play the game. They show the game off then they go straight to the subscription. Usually in games they would let you have a few choices. Continue the game without a subscription, or get the free trial, and lastly pay for the actual subscription. In this game it doesn’t let you go on without paying for the subscription or getting the free trial. If this game didn’t have that, I’m pretty sure that if I would’ve been able to play the game. Then I would be able to evaluate, and explore the game to see how it is. Then put my opinions, and recommendations on it, but so far it hasn’t let me go on with the game. Therefore when that issue fixes then I shall be able to review the game.
A stupid trial
It doesn’t let you do anything else except for color and a egg and what if you don’t want to have a trial what if you just want to play the stupid game but now you have to have the trial to play the game but what if you don’t want to try out what if you just wanna put the stupid games out having the trial no the only thing you can do if you don’t want the trials color a stupid egg This game makes me want to cry because I really wanted to play it but I guess that’s not possible because I have to fill out a stupid trial with stupid money that I could be spending on food things that help me live but no if I wanted to play more of the game and actually play the actual game I have to fill out this stupid trial and waste my stupid money🥺😤😢
Started the trial, good features but constant crashing
We would probably subscribe to this app if it didn't constantly crash. Our iPad is older but the specs say it's compatible (tried restarting the ipad, checking if we were low on storage space) But we have spent more time attempting to load a part of the game (most recently the design a pet level), only to have the app force close repeatedly when loading the level. When we've been able to load in, the games are great and well designed. But the crashing makes it unplayable and not worth a purchase.
Kids love it but......
This is such a cute app! My kids (4 and 6) LOVE it!! There are lots of ways in the apps for them to be creative. It’s a paid subscription, which overall I would find worth it, BUT it freezes all the time on our iPad mini ☹️ And our other iPad is in my husband’s name and I haven’t figured out a way to do sharing. Login is linked to the Apple account - you don’t sign in like you do with an app like ABC mouse. I emailed them, though, so maybe they can help.
I mainly got this game so my daughter could paint her own pet. They give you a few free starter eggs then you have to earn them. To earn them you have to play games. My 3 year old had to do about 10 games per chest so it takes a good minute and after 3 chests or so still no more eggs. So we just uninstalled. If I’m paying for a game I want my daughter to have fun, not grind out games she doesn’t care for to win prizes she doesn’t care for. Unlimited eggs would’ve been the way to go! Less grinding, more fun!
First and foremost. Yes you have to pay a subscription fee. Big whoop. The developers state they are constantly adding new material to the app. Second, I’m current signed up for the week free trail. I went through the app and it’s similar to other “free” apps. I say “free” because you pay for the app in one way or another. There are no hidden features or adds. AWESOME. My child loves many of the drawing apps but the ads are insane in them. So yes, this is a creativity app with many features. So if my child doesn't feel like drawing and painting for real or we’re in the car this is a great alternative. Especially when you compare it to a movie or random brain numbing game. Remember, you get what you pay for.
This app advertises itself as free and nowhere says you MUST make a payment to use it on the store, but once you actually open the app you are required to pay to do anything. It’s the quality and advertising of a regular free app but is really behind a paywall. There’s plenty of free alternatives on the App Store if you want a game to color or a game to take care of pets. If you want us to pay, at least tell us we need to instead of hiding it until you download. The subscription also seems very expensive for what you get to do. $3.33 a month if you buy the annual package or $6.99 monthly.
A new Idea
We can have a solar system page where you can go to all the planets, moons, dwarf planets, and the sun! We can have books and you read it by yourself or it reads to you. Age 6+ read by myself. 5- read to you. The books can be about crayons and space. The solar system page can teach you basic and advanced facts about the solar system!
My kids LOVE this app!!
Well done Crayola, what an awesome app. We’ve always been a fan of your apps, but this one takes the cake. My kids absolutely LOVE designing and creating the pets! There’s so much to do and explore in the app, but our family has just enjoyed the create a pet so much. Glad to see it’s high-quality as well, they look beautiful. Bravo, we’re big fans over here!
This game is awesome!!!!!!
I love drawing pictures on it, and it really gets my creativity flowing! There are many fun activities on it. When I am grown up I will download this app for my kids! Those people who give bad reviews are brainless. I absolutely love the drawing section and the coloring pages. I hope you make more apps like this. It is amazing.
