Happy Coloring Book
Educational application Happy Coloring Book for Android mobile devices is available for free download in the Google Play Store. Most of the characters in the application are drawn simply so it is more accessible for younger children.
Using this game, the child learns the names of colors, letters and numbers, animal species such as birds, insects, and fish, and vehicle types (Image 1). There are 14 categories where you can view a gallery of saved drawings (Image 2).

Now in the top menu, select an icon that looks like a gift, and from the menu below choose the object you want. What is interesting in this category is that all the objects that we put on our drawing can move and increase by double clicking. If you want to remove an object, just click on it (Image 10).
The last icon in the top menu allows you to put the letters on your drawing. Choose the letter from the menu below. Find a letter you want by moving the bottom menu left or right (Image 11). You can move all animations and stickers around the drawing.
