Turn your iPad into the 3D coloring book of tomorrow with the striking new patent-pending 3D coloring app that combines the latest in 3D animation and augmented reality. TCKL, makers of The Drip Drops property, will shed some colors on CES with The Drip Drops: Color the World App, an interactive and fun game designed to engage and entertain young children between 2 to 6 years old, in full glorious 3D never before seen in any app in its category. Based on The Drip Drops original digital pre-school property centered on art, color, reading and creativity, the new app will debut at the 2013 CES Show. TCKL also announces that it has partnered with leading art and activity company Cra-Z-Art on The Drip Drops consumer products, which are expected to include a colorful roster of plush, art activities and more.
“The Drip Drops property is the first character-driven art brand to combine 3D technology with real augmented reality, providing a one-of-a-kind digital coloring experience that immerses kids in the world of color and creativity," said President and CEO Tony Lawlor. “By encouraging self-expression through art, The Drip Drops help kids color their worlds using technology they love and characters they will want to befriend, all while they receive constant positive reinforcement. We believe this to be an invaluable teaching tool for parents and teachers, and complements a child’s academic arts program by providing a solid foundation for future learning. Children who engage in art activities in their early childhood develop into more creative, social and articulate individuals, putting them in better stead later in life. ”
The Drip Drops: Color the World 3D Coloring App and The Drip Drops Augmented Reality Racing Game debuting to media at CES, are expected to be available for download by the end of January. In addition to the 3D Coloring App and Augmented Reality Rainbow Racing Game, The Drip Drops pre-school property also currently has two digital books and two iBooks available now for download in the iTunes App Store, the BelugaBloo Bookstore, and Google Play for multiple Android devices. The Drip Drops continue to diversify its offerings in 2013 and is expected to be preloaded on the newest edition of leading kids tablet, the Kurio 2.0 from Techno Source.

"The exciting high-tech The Drip Drops: Color the World 3D Coloring App, the Augmented Reality Rainbow Racing Game, and spectacular ebooks and ibooks, coupled with Cra-Z-Art's dynamic line of plush, coloring products and color mixing activities, will collectively bring The Drip Drops to life, engaging kids globally in their wonderful world of color."
