Coosi Box | Free Creativity App with interactive Drawings
✔ iPad + iPhone ✔ Android ✔ Kindle Fire | Kids App for ages 3-7 years
The funny Coosi Box Drawing App is our personal App Store tip for you today: The app has been offered for free for a while now by the Korean App developers Yellephant – and this is a permanent offer for all systems (iPad, iPhone, Android and Kindle Fire)! In addition, one special feature makes the app stand out from other drawing apps: The creative drawings of your kids will come to life in the Coosi Box! Read in our review below, as to how this is works.
Interactive Drawing Pictures
First of all, kids get to create themselves a Coosi Monster avatar, which is used for the sharing-function, which we will explain to you later on. However, the actual creative act starts with the so called »Carry-on pictures«: At the moment there are 9 templates with drawings to choose from, on which at least one element is missing, that needs to be drawn and completed by kids. The drawn Object is also automatically added to the template and will come to life with a very funny animation.
Example: On the following screen-shot, you can see one of our self-created cuddly piggy-slippers, with which the big bear stomps off with…
By the way, the actual missing object of each picture is not given. Whether the angler is catching a fish or an old boot, is up to the kids imagination to decide.
Simple Drawing Tools
Considering the target group, the drawing tools that are offered are assessable, but also sufficient enough. There are three different brush sizes and as many as 16 different colors, with which you can surely transform each idea, that the kids have in mind. It is still a little unusual that kids need to keep the arrow button pressed for so long, until the numbers 1, 2, 3 are visible. This is supposed to prevent kids from leaving the coloring mode by accident.
Worldwide Drawing Contest
If the app is used with an active Internet connection, the created drawings can be shared with other app users – which by the way happens automatically without registration, which may not be appreciated by some. However, as no other kind of information or data is shared or published, for us, the fun of this function simply outweighs, because beautiful pictures are marked with a heart by the Community, which is really motivating and encourages kids to create even more pictures.
For those of you who don’t like to do this, you can use the app in the offline mode (switch off the wlan on your device or switch to flight-mode).

Coosi Box | Kids App Rating
The Coosi Box definitely deserves a download recommendation: the app may not be perfect – but free, interesting and furthers creativity. We’re already looking forward to the upcoming updates, which are supposed to complement the existing templates.
Besides new pictures, we’d also like two more adjustments: Although we appreciate the artistic freedom of the Coosi Box App, it would be helpful to have a guideline or contour for some of the pictures, because the automatic function doesn’t always add the objects precisely enough into the animation sequence. The loading times are also pretty long.
Tip: If you’re using the app with no internet connection, most of the loading times do not apply.
(+) Animated Pictures
(+) Permanently free without in-app purchases
(+) Share function with other Users
(+) Pleasant music & funny sounds
(-) Loading times could be shorter
(-) In the “door scene” quite often the hat flies over the heads
