4 Stars

 

I love opening a new product and immediately being pleased with the quality. As soon as I opened the package my Coloring Notebook arrived in, my first thought was how perfect this would be for traveling or to take along somewhere. The book is around 5 inches wide and 8 inches tall– perfect for me to throw in my purse or something. It has a nice elastic strap that holds the cover (it’s hardcover by the way) closed as well as a yellow ribbon bookmark.

Inside, is a combination of ruled paper (the website also looks like they have dotted page options as well blank pages) and pictures to color. And the coloring pictures are very assorted– everything from scenes, to patterns, to mandalas. There’s cats and cupcakes, racoons and feathers, waves and pencils. Personally, I love the blend of pictures and the idea of having lined pages. Often, I enjoy coloring as a way to clear my mind and focus my thoughts. It gives a handy place to jot down any creative notes I might want to make.

So, why only four stars? The pages appeared to be on the thinner side, and they definitely are. I tried coloring on a page first with Sharpies and they bled through not only to the backside, but through the next page as well (although I intentionally selected a page for a test run). I also tried out some Fine Line Crayola washable markers and those did not bleed through at all. So, this is a book that if you plan to use ink in, you’ll want to be certain to find an area that you don’t mind possibly ruining in order to test. I also wrote with a ball point pen, and because the pages are thinner, you do get some raised marks on the backside and I could see hints of the dark blue ink that I used to write in on the opposite side.

But overall, I’m impressed with this little book and I can see this making a wonderful gift for someone. It would also be perfect for someone who is looking for a great option to take with them “on the go”.
