Each story is interactive and fun for young children. They teach colors, shapes, counting, and more in a fun format. Users can choose to have the story read to them or they can read it to themselves. Here are a few clips of The Drip Drop books:
Early childhood art education is so important for young children and The Drip Drops are the perfect way to introduce colors and foster creativity. As children go through the pages of the different stories they are asked to click on things, help the characters, make choices, and more. This is great for their fine motor skills as well as decision making skills.

“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. ”
