Colorama Coloring Books Review
The idea of an adult coloring book is not new, although seeing such a product advertised on television is something of a rarity. The beauty of the Colorama Coloring Book is that its simplicity almost guarantees consumer satisfaction. Indeed, the designs are lovely, and most consumers would probably find some designs worthy of displaying. Obviously the skill of each consumer is different, and the the method of coloring can vary (water color, crayon, etc.). These factors will no doubt affect the final product. Even if your final output doesn’t resemble Monet, however, it is still a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend time away from the stresses of everyday life. Reaction from those who have obtained a Colorama Coloring Book has been almost uniformly positive. Unlike coloring books for children, the designs here are displayed on one-sided paper, meaning bleed-through is less likely, and that you don’t have to choose which side of a page to display.
Based on the small number of television spots, it would appear that the Colorama Coloring Book is in the test marketing phase by Telebrands. This is further bolstered by a small number of inquiries on social media about slow shipping. It is common for a test marketed product to only be produced in limited quantities, often leading to back-order status until further products can be manufactured.
A cursory search of Amazon yields a variety of adult coloring books, many selling in the $10-$12 range. You can also find similar products locally at such stores as Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.
The Colorama Coloring Book offers beautiful designs in an adult coloring book of high quality. Slow and expensive shipping are perhaps the product’s biggest downfall, especially when similar adult coloring books can be obtained locally for less.
