This is going to be a two part review because I haven’t received the actual comic book, that my son created, back in the mail yet. This is such a great idea and so fun to help him create. Here is the kit we received in the mail. What a great way to make your child’s stories come to life and to cherish them for years to come.
- You Make it
- They Print it
- You Share it
There are different ways you can do this too. You can use the paper they include with step-by-step instructions and simply draw it all out and mail it in or you can do it all online. Here is a video about how to use their included papers to make your book.
If you choose to create your book online, they have characters and objects you can insert as images into your comic book, as well as using your own images. My son drew and colored images and then we cut them out and scanned them into the computer and used them to create his comic book online. We used some of the images LuLu Jr. has to add more to it as well. You choose the layouts for each page and then pick your background pictures. For background images they have these different categories to look through: City day, city night, exterior day, exterior night, interiors, outdoor day, outdoor night, favorites, bridges, buildings, hills, indoors, outdoors, night, sea, nature, animals, miscellaneous. Then they have pages of stickers you can add too with these categories: effects, hero, villain, heroine, villainess, extras, alphabet, animals, baby, beach, buildings, fairy tales, farm, flags, food, historical, holidays, indoors, love, music, numbers, outdoors, people, religious, school, shapes, space, sports, stickers,, symbols, toys, transportation, and vacation. It was a lot of fun and he cannot wait to get it back and show it to his friends! This is a perfect gift for birthday parties and for the upcoming holidays. The finished book is shipped to you with free shipping as well so there aren’t any extra hidden fee’s or anything like that. All you do is order your package, ours was the comic book, create your book and wait for it to be shipped to you.
