Crayola LLC Key Developments

Lulu Jr. and Crayola Join Forces to Create Book-Making Kits for Kids

Lulu Jr. reported that it has entered into a licensing agreement with Crayola to develop book-making kits for children ages four to 12. The kits will give children tools and inspiration to write stories and bring them to life as full-color hardcover or paperback books that are professionally printed and bound. The kits are designed to nurture children's creativity and help them build self-esteem while strengthening their communication skills. Each book-making kit will come with Crayola markers or colored pencils for the child to use in making their book.

Crayola Announces Color Alive! 4D Experience for Kids, with Augmented Reality Interactivity

Crayola announced plans to launch Color Alive!, the first augmented reality product offering among its growing digital portfolio, in early 2015. Partnering with 4D company DAQRI, Color Alive! will feature an innovative offline and online play experience through color and 4D technology, allowing kids to bring their coloring to life. Color Alive! follows the successful launch of Crayola's Virtual Design Pro -- Fashion and Cars, which allows kids to merge offline creativity with a virtual experience. As the technological landscape evolves and kids increasingly become digital natives, the company's key strategic focus is on providing innovative ways to spark their creativity and merge the physical coloring experience with cutting-edge digital platforms. At launch, Color Alive! will be available in four coloring books: Mythical Creatures, Enchanted Garden, Skylanders and Barbie. Children activate the 4D Experience(TM) through the Color Alive! app, by aiming their device's camera at the colored page to bring their unique drawing to life in their own surroundings. The included Magic Crayon transforms coloring by activating special effects through drawing on the page, in real-time. Kids can also interact and take photos with the coloring book characters.
