Suzy Toronto Coloring Books - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

I have no shortage of adult coloring books.  Coloring actually brings me stress relief and calms my nerves.  I'm no fusspot and don't expect perfection out of my pages, but rather go with the flow and enjoy the finished project.  

Because I've purchased and reviewed so many adult coloring books, I can decently say that I know which ones are high-quality and which ones are subpar.  The Suzy Toronto coloring books are some of my favorite, both for the designs and the condition.

Suzy Toronto. Toronto is a self-proclaimed "wacky" woman, and she wants others to embrace their inner wackiness too. She's created an entire art brand that speaks (mostly) to girls and women, inspiring them to embrace their rarity, goofiness, and everything that makes them unique—no matter how silly it may seem.  This is the first I'd heard of Suzy and I imagine we'd be good pals in real life.  I love her attitude and sass.  She doesn't take life seriously (Same!).  

If coloring books aren't your thing (although I can't imagine why not!) Toronto also creates and sells cell phone covers, Christmas ornaments, gift bags, and much more.

Suzy Toronto's newest creations are the coloring books with the latest one being Tingle Boots, Four additional books make up the series:  Friendship Coloring Book, Sisterhood Coloring Book, Inspiration &Encouragement Coloring Book, and Light & Laughter Coloring Book. In each book, Suzy Toronto sprinkles encouraging and empowering quotes.  The illustrations correspond with the theme of each book. 

Toronto also advocates on behalf of breast cancer survivors. Some of her product proceeds benefit cancer research. Ultimately, Toronto's goal is to continue empowering women.

There are several reasons I really like Suzy Toronto's coloring books.  For one, the designs are cute and whimsical.  They're pictures that I want to color.  In fact, it's hard to choose which one I want to color.  I've had friends over and we've spent several hours coloring at the table in Suzy Toronto's books.  

The pages are perforated, so you can tear them out.  I have one page I'm working on right now that I'm going to frame and gift to a friend on her birthday.  


There are 80 pages in each coloring book, so there's plenty to color.  The paper itself is prime and doesn't rip easily.  There's also a guide to coloring basics with coloring wheels and suggestions, if you are into that sort of thing.  I, honestly, just go with my own colors and choices.  There are also some fully colored illustrations in each book to help you with ideas.  I've used several coloring instruments on the pages and they all flow well on the paper.  Gel pens, markers, and coloring pencils can be used.  I've not tried other mediums.

These coloring books are Wack-tas-tical!!

Win It!

One person will win a Tingle Boots Coloring Book.

MyKidsMom said...

I had a blast coloring with you!Thanks for letting me...(&the kiddos) I could have stayed coloring for a little longer (a lot longer- actually) it was very calming and therapeutic... as I don't feel we make much time for ourselves in the busy course of our day, and when we do, it's on our phones or "relaxing" and watching TV...it was a great moment to just relax and yet still be "in the moment" with the friends/family around us. Mindless activity but definitely worth taking 30 mins to 1 hour to decompress....alone, or with the Kids....and it's always fun with a bestie! Love you Terra

MyKidsMom said...

Jeez I always have 'a lot'to say⤴
It probably doesn't help that I use my "talk text" instead of actually typing...
