ColorMe Company

If your kids are anything like mine, they LOVE to color. I am constantly purchasing coloring books and they use a ton of recycled paper. However, sometimes they get bored with just the same old thing. I was sent a ColorMe Company pillowcase for my kids to try out. Wow, you would think they had died and gone to heaven. They had so much fun! I only had one, but they seemed to manage just fine taking turns. And as a mom, that was surprising!

The ColorMe Company was founded in 2003 by Dr. Paul Marciano who holds a Ph.D in child clinical pyschology from Yale University. He was inspired by his goddaughter's coloring from a Christmas card. He began to think that traditional Christmas cards were not that inspiring or meaningful for children. Soon he created his own "coloring card." This combined the joy of a coloring book as well as the thoughtfulness of a greeting card.

The idea didn't stop there. Soon the Color Me Company's product line included t-shirts, pillowcases, and seasonal items. All of their products are 100% cotton and include fabric markers. Their products would make great gifts for that creative child in your life.

Take a look at their Pillowcase Party Set. They are perfect for slumber parties! When my daughter has her first party, this is definitely a must.

Every design you see on their products is drawn by children. I think that is what's so great about the ColorMe Company. As they say, their expression is "by kids, for kids." On top of that, all products are made in the USA. They do what they can to make their products safe. They also donate 10% of their total gross proceeds to children's charities through their customer-driven Charity Choice Program. They were even featured in a 2007 Wall Street Journal article for their unique and generous corporate giving plan.

The ColorMe Company is one that not only inspires our children, but helps the world around us. I love to support companies like this that want nothing but the best for our children. Their message is simple. They want to provide a positive world for our kids and I think they are doing one heck of a job.

If you would like to purchase one of their adorable designs, please use discount code: COLORMEXMAS for 15% OFF. The offer is good until 12/20/08.

  1. Very cute idea. I think anything that allows kids to color on something they wouldn't normally be able to is fun for them!
