So as I mentioned in my post from yesterday, I recently picked back up my colored pencils after months (and months) of not coloring. Despite already having lots of coloring books on my shelf, I purchased two new books (that were deeply discounted) from Barnes & Noble online. I’m really excited to tell you about the tokidoki Coloring Book because it is still on sale for 75% off!!! My brand new copy cost only $2.48!!! I love kawaii art so this coloring book was perfect for me.
I had never heard of tokidoki before seeing this coloring book online — I know, I know, I live under a rock — but I’ve since learned that tokidoki is a Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand with iconic characters (such as The Cactus Friends, The Moofia, and Donutella) appearing on clothing, bags, footwear, accessories, toys, and more. And now these adorable iconic characters are available to color!
tokidoki Coloring Book is sized 7 x 9 inches with 64 pages. The designs (32 total) are printed single-sided on good quality, medium-weight, white paper. Of the 32 designs, 9 of them are wallpaper designs meaning that the page is filled with a repeating pattern or repeating images to color. I’m definitely not a fan of wallpaper designs because I prefer to color different things. I wish that the art on the front and back covers was rendered in black in white as coloring pages inside. The book is glue bound with a tight spine but perhaps over time (afterall, the book is brand new and I haven’t even colored in it yet) the spine will loosen up a bit and the book will lay more flat when open. But since I only paid $2.48, I can put my quibbles aside and just enjoy all the cuteness inside 🙂

Where to buy: At the time of this post, this specific tokidoki coloring book (FYI: there are three tokidoki coloring books that all released in October 2016) is still deeply discounted on Barnes & Noble for only $2.48!!! Also available elsewhere online — Amazon USA has the book discounted currently for $6.02.
Have y’all gotten any really good deals on coloring books lately? Let me know in the comments.
