    Life in Coloring Men’s Coloring Book Kit Review

    Life in Coloring Men's Coloring Book Kit Review

    I love coloring books. While my daughter works on her school work, my son and I like to sit with her at the table and coloring. He usually scribbles on sheets of paper, but I love coloring in my adult coloring books. But why should I have all the fun? Most coloring books have been designed with women in mind, which is great for me but not so wonderful for my husband and other men. Plus, I do not enjoy just girly designs. Sometimes I want to color Vikings, skulls, cars, and more. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review the men’s coloring book kit from Life in Coloring, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add to my coloring book collection.

    Price

    The men’s coloring book kit from Life in Coloring currently retails for $45 with a sale price of $33.99 on Amazon. The kit comes with twelve colored pencils, coloring book filled with masculine motifs, removable case, pencil sharpener, and case with magnetic closure. At first glance, the kit seems a bit on the expensive side. Other adult coloring books generally cost between $5 and $10. However, with this kit, you also get colored pencils, a sharpener, and a case. Once I finish this coloring book, I can continue to use the other pieces of the kit with other coloring books. I therefore rate the price positively.

    Design

    Made in the USA, the men’s coloring book kit from Life in Coloring comes with twelve colored pencils, male-inspired coloring book, removable pencil case, pencil sharpener, and case with magnetic closure. The coloring book features images designed for men such as ships, cars, skulls, nature, and planes. The coloring book flips open at the top, and the pages are single-sided. The black faux leather case with a magnetic closure makes carrying the kit around the house or while traveling easy, and the case is universally sized to fit most books and coloring supplies.

    Performance

    I have loved arts and crafts since I was a kid, and I still love coloring now that I am an adult. I absolutely love the men’s coloring book it from Life in Coloring. Although geared towards men, both men and women can enjoy coloring in the images, which are quite different from the more feminine designs in other coloring books. The reusable and portable case allows me to take the coloring kit with me around the house and while spending the day out with my kids. Because of the faux leather case, I can sit on the couch or outside in a lawn chair and color while my kids play instead of remaining confined to a table. The case is sturdy and high quality. I love that I can swap out my own art supplies and other coloring books, which adds value to the kit. I foresee myself using this case for many coloring adventures to come!

    The twelve colored pencils that come with the men’s coloring book kit from Life in Coloring feature black barrels and red, pink, orange, beige, yellow, dark green, light green, dark blue, light blue, purple, brown, and black pigments. The basic colors represent the entire rainbow, so you can color the entire Life Lessons coloring book with just these pencils. The pencils sharpen beautifully and easy with the included pencil sharpener, which is silver plastic with a metal blade. In fact, this little sharpener works better than my more expensive electric model. You can additionally remove the included pencils and bring along your own gel pens, markers, fine liners, or watercolor pencils in the elastic holders in the case.

    I love the variety of different pictures to color in the men’s coloring book. Instead of following a single theme, the designs include ships, cars, skulls, nature, planes, and more. The variety makes selecting a picture to fit my mood easy. While the pictures are geared towards men, I find myself enjoying most of the designs, especially the skulls and the nature scenes. None of my other coloring books include these types of pictures. I also love that each page is printed on a separate sheet of paper. Oftentimes I cannot use markers or wet pens because the ink bleeds through to the opposite side of the paper, ruining the design on the back. I can color in this book with any medium that I choose without worrying about bleed-through. I therefore appreciate adult coloring books with single-sided designs.

    Final Verdict

    If you are a fan of adult coloring books or are looking for a gift for a man in your life who wants a new hobby to relax with, I highly recommend the men’s coloring book it from Life in Coloring. While more expensive than most other coloring books, the kit comes with twelve colored pencils, male-inspired coloring book, removable pencil case, pencil sharpener, and case with magnetic closure. You can get started coloring right away, and you can reuse the case. The pencils are high quality and easy to sharpen with the included sharpener. You can also swap out your own art supplies and coloring books in the reusable case with magnetic closure. Although the pictures are geared towards men, I am digging most of the designs such as skulls and nature scenes. I therefore highly recommend the Life in Coloring men’s coloring book kit to all adult fans of coloring!
