Any fan of the iconic Hello Kitty character will appreciate these activity books, which are full of fun scenes to color, as well as mazes, puzzles, word-finds, and more. Many come with stickers, such as the Thermos Travel Set, which includes 25 stickers that are fun to add to one’s folders, artwork, and more. In addition to a coloring book filled with scenes of Hello Kitty at school, you’ll also receive a two-compartment lunch bag, which is good for anytime you want to bring some snacks on the go. We also rounded out the list by adding in the Hello Kitty Word-Finds, which consists of two volumes, each of which contains 81 puzzles. Each layout is centered around a fun theme, like sweet treats, rainy days, and more. Many of the words are hidden around the perimeter of each puzzle, making this well suited for young children. These two choices replace the Crayola Mini Pages, which isn’t suitable for kids under three, and the Bendon 64 Page, which some reviewers have complained is made of very thin paper.
Our list also includes a nice option sure to be enjoyed by any grown-up fan of the popular feline character. The 96-page Hello Kitty & Friends book is a good coloring book for adults and children alike, filled with intricate illustrations you can spend hours decorating with either some fine-tipped art markers or colored pencils. You’ll enjoy finding many characters from the Sanrio world, including My Melody, Keroppi, Pochacco, and Tuxedosam.
For an option that’s good for a play date or multiple siblings, look to the Bendon Publishing Set of 4, which comes with fun, whimsical scenes to color as well as counting games and other learning activities. If your youngster prefers painting, check out the Sanrio Paint with Water, which includes a Hello Kitty book as well as a Lisa Frank one, and all you have to do is dip your paintbrush in water and run it over each page, to watch the colors magically appear. It’s sure to make less of a mess than watercolors or other types of paint, with cleanup that’s quick and easy. Speaking of mess-free options, the Crayola Color Wonder Pad features Crayola’s popular markers that only show up on the special corresponding pages, so you won’t have to worry about your little one marking up your walls or furniture. This set includes 15 playful illustrations, and pink, green, blue, and yellow pastel markers. No matter which coloring book set you go with, always supervise young children and their art supplies and toys to help ensure a safe playtime.
