Kids will be inspired to explore different color combinations and will be thrilled to see their artistic creations come to life through augmented reality. Color Quest AR takes the digital coloring experience to another level by allowing kids to interact with their characters in their own physical environment. Navigating the app is simple, and many aspects are intuitive. The how-to video is an added bonus that ensures little ones learn how to navigate the app on their own. The visual and audio tutorial is comprehensive and covers nuances such as choosing shades of color, switching brush size, and pinching the screen to zoom out. Kids can access the tutorial at any time by tapping on the first character in the lineup, the heart. Another cool feature that promotes independence and accessibility is the narration function. Little ones will hear all prompts and health facts read aloud to them when it's on.

In addition to providing a platform for kids to color and express their creativity, this app also layers in opportunities to learn basic health facts about the human body and food. The facts are trivia-like but definitely promote a sense of curiosity and draw connections between how food impacts the body. Each character is linked to a fact. When kids revisit a character to try different color combinations, they'll hear the same fact again. Although the facts are quirky and interesting, they are limited, and the app's main emphasis is on coloring and AR. The photo and video features are a simple way for kids to memorialize their creativity and create content that they can watch at a later time or share with friends using their digital device. Kids can animate their characters at the park or at the grocery store. Seeing the characters they create move and dance in different places or with people they know will definitely keep kids entertained. The experience empowers kids to create content and explore creative possibilities. Overall, Color Quest AR is a fun app that gives little ones an opportunity to use their imagination, use their fingertips as coloring tools, and create content using their imagination and own physical space. Plus, they can learn health facts along the way! The app is completely free, and there aren't any in-app ads interrupting kids' experience, so with a little supervision while kids use AR, it can be a multifaceted experience for kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
