A pregnant Ashlee Simpson Ross wasn’t shy about taking coloring tips from her 6 year old son Bronx while attending the February 5 Manhattan launch of Crayola’s newest product Color Alive . The pregnant star and her husband of five months, Evan Ross were smiling and having a great time seeing Bronx enjoying himself and coloring alongside mom bloggers and their kids. Excitedly showing his mum his drawings and his coloring skills Bronx was having loads of fun.
.The mum-to-be and her new hubby were not to be left out of the coloring fun jumping into the crayoning action and using the Color Alive app to bring their coloring creations to life. The young couple definitely showed that Color Alive is as much fun for adults as it is for kids.
Simpson and family also spent time mingling alongside Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein, co-creators of the MOMS and amongst invited mom bloggers and their kids. The singer even stopping to take pics and a few selfies with attendees.
Dressed in black skinny leather pants and an oversized burgundy top covering her baby bump the mom-to-be glowed. Ross making his own fashion statement was fashionable in an oversized coat and worsted boots. The young couple are expecting their first child, a girl together this year
The fun afternoon saw kids and adults alike enjoying Color Alive which is available in four coloring books : Skylander, Barbie, Enchanted Garden and Mythical Creatures. Each book contain 16 pages and features a unique character and animation and comes with seven crayons including one Magic Crayon that unlocks a special virtual effect. Everyone enjoyed learning how Crayola is changing the world of coloring forever with their free Color Alive app.
My kids loved everything about the Color Alive event. They weren’t fully aware that there was a celebrity in the house as they were all about checking out the different coloring books, playing dress up in the character costumes, spending time coloring the different characters and getting to launch the app . The finger foods was also a big hit with them especially the colored french fries, the fried green beans and the chicken skewers. They could not get enough of the lemonade and found it ah-mazing that they could order their own flavors from the server at the Lemonade Stand. The Blueberry flavored offering was their favorite choice.
It was hard to pull the kids away and head for home but when told that they would each receive a swag bag of Color Alive goodies to leave with they were beyond overjoyed. When they saw that it was a mini backpack containing Color Alive loot the look on their faces? Well it was pure excited Joy! The excitement is still ongoing.
Looking to add some excitement to your kid’s afternoon . I suggest you grab yourself Crayola’s Color Alive. Trust me, it is non-stop fun for everyone in the family. Just go to crayola.com .
FRIDAY’ S CUTE PIC OF THE DAY on crownheightsmom goes to Magnolia, the heart-stopping, cute-as-ever little 20-month old happy tyke who along with her BABY stopped me in my tracks on Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon.
Meet MAGNOLIA . She literally brought the sun out today. In fact I think her cuteness is the reason the expected snow storm for Thursday went bye-bye!
I spotted the lil darling taking her baby out for a walk on Eastern Parkway. Along for the stroll was mum Natalie and dad Matthew. The 9-year Brooklyn residents have been residing in Crown Heightsfor the past three years. Before Magnolia came along the gorgeous couple were living in Do-or-die Bed-Sty!…
Brooklyn is fast becoming that borough young families are flocking to. Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Lefferts Gardens and Flatbush are the new favorite areas for new renters and buyers. Don’t get me wrong there is still interest in Fort Green, Bedford Stuyvesant, Ditmas Park, Sunset Park, Park Slope and Boroum Hill areas .
Let’s not even begin to talk culture. Brooklyn is a gumbo pot of cultures. It is the epitome of what New York stands for. For young families moving to Crown Heights you can walk down the street and bump into someone from every caribbean island known to man, meet young hip fashionable Hasidics, or a Korean grocer selling the freshest fruits and vegetables this side of Chinatown, or even talk politics with the Yemen corner store owner . The cultures my friend in Brooklyn are infinite .
So as our little cutie pie Magnolia continues on her walk here’s to wishing her a wonderful year and hoping when she hits her 2 year mark on May 19 that she stays as sweet as ever for mummy and daddy .
Enjoy your walk little Magnolia and take in all that your wonderful neighborhood has to offer. Soak it up!
