What do you think about adult coloring book?
I have a few friends who have published adult coloring books on Amazon. They say their coloring book is doing well. What do you think about adult coloring book? Would you buy an adult coloring book?

At a party I had for seniors from an old age home I gifted them with things that a child would normally get. There were puzzles and colouring books. Spending time that involves creativity is not something that only children need to do. Those with time on their hands could go for such activities and enjoy them too.

I have never bought a coloring book ever since I left childhood. However, when I see people gaga over an adult coloring book, I am surprised over their fascination. having said that I believe adult coloring book can be a good pass time activities to the old people.

An adult is a person who is supposed to have an inward clear picture of what he/she is doing.To me adult colouring books is not an ideal target and to the adults.Congrats though if someone is earning selling this in Amazon haha.

The child in an adult comes out when opportunities are provided such as in this case when the adult decides to get busy with colouring books. The fact that there is demand for these books confirms what I have just said.

Purposes of adult coloring book are simple
to spend time doing full activity
to channeling your emotion
to destress yourself
to throw your boredom.
These books are targeted towards the adults who have spare time, want to do some fun activity while sitting in their armchair, These books also try to bring an artist inside the person who is doin this.

It is said that people generally return to their childhood state when they grow old, and so they are satisfied with simple pleasures in life, much like a child.

That's true. We begin as a child, move towards adulthood and old age. When we are old, we again turn to childhood. In our old age, we behave and think like a child. Children love coloring so will the adults with adult coloring books.

I saw this trend get really big once in the last few years but I don't know if it has died down since I don't hear much about it anymore. I'm sure there are still a lot of adults who are into this as most niches are able to survive now with enough of a cult following or a small audience online. I think it's alright and if you can excel in it then you should definitely get into it and if you have a good product eventually people will respond to it.

I think adult coloring book is getting trendy. I have many friends who have published adult coloring book as well as bought adult coloring books. Those who have used the book say it is a good way to spend your time. I don't have experience of adult coloring book, but I might buy it for my parents. Since coloring is a mental exercise, I guess adult coloring book will keep the mind occupied.

I some design in the net recently and from my point of view it is a kind of activity that has promising results. I do love the intricate designs and I would like to get my hands on one or two of those designs so that I could add my personal touch. I think is becoming a trend since I see a lot of these kind of coloring books in bookstores. Whenever I pass that section where the coloring books are placed, there would be somebody checking it out.

I have seen them before because my aunt buys them and colors them. But it's not something that I would want to do because it involves a ton of time just to color one picture. And I don't have that kind of time to sit there in front of a coloring book and color for hours on end and not to mention that its very tedious work.
January 5, 2018, 6:52 am
Haha, that's true. It takes hours to color a single picture because most of them are different patterns and structures. It roughly takes me 3-4 hours of coloring to finish a single picture but I often do it while just watching the TV. I listen to the program and color as well. It's weirdly relaxing.
January 6, 2018, 12:35 pm
The coloring books are meant for the people who have nothing to do or have a plenty of free time. LOL.
Well, actually there is also a positive side of using a coloring book. It can substantially reduce your stress and anxiety levels. It makes you feel happy by occupying you in the work.
January 9, 2018, 6:09 pm
It is still okay, and it still trends especially when you are artistic too, adult coloring is still its led in the online marketing network. You can sell them at Amazon and even on this platforms and other SEO owned sites, it is that easy because definitely you will get who to buy it.
January 5, 2018, 1:01 pm
I have seen people's fascination for an adult coloring book. I also think there is a market for such books. I am not an artist, therefore, I may not be able to create such books. I have not bought adult coloring books yet, however, someday I might become a consumer. I see many benefits of adult coloring books and the obvious ones are spending quality time, being creative, destressing etc.
January 18, 2018, 6:18 pm
This is just a way to kill off boredom and we need to allow those to express themselves in such way. I don't think there is any reason we should be worried since those people feel cool with using adult coloring books.
January 6, 2018, 8:20 am
Killing boredom is one benefit of coloring book, however, there are also many other benefits. For instance, an adult coloring book might help people suffering from depression, anxiety and stress. Since you will have to spend a great deal of time coloring the figures, your mind will be occupied for a long time. When the mind is occupied, there is no time to remain depressed.

I actually bought a few of those mandala type of adult coloring books. You know the ones that have all sort of patterns and then you color it freely? I tried it as part of meditation and relaxing and it truly works. It's so amazing being able to fully let go and be creative.
I usually color 2-3 pictures per week and I would highly recommend it to everybody. Just give a try and see for yourself.
January 6, 2018, 12:33 pm
I see that you have acquired a good hobby. I am a firm believer that time should be spent with things that is meaningful and can enhance one's creativity. I guess I tend to lean towards that belief because as you age, you find things that are more practical and mature.
January 7, 2018, 6:34 am
I have never done an adult coloring book, I mean I have never used an adult coloring book. I might also never publish an adult coloring book because I am not an artist. However, I have friends who publish adult coloring books as well as purchase adult coloring books for themselves. These books feature diagrams, for instance, a mandala, as well as illustrations of human and animals. Some pictures look easy to color, whereas some pictures are as complicated as a landscape.
January 24, 2018, 6:12 pm
I don't know. I mean, I still do word search puzzles or crossword puzzles when I'm traveling but coloring books aren't something I've ever thought about partaking in since I was a kid. If you find through market research that the niche audience for such things is big enough, I guess it wouldn't be a terrible idea.
January 7, 2018, 6:17 pm
Exactly. It isn't such a terrible idea. This is the point I've been trying to make all along. It's actually a good niche and I've seen people make good money out of it. So put asides boredom, hubby or just fun, it's probably a source of living for someone.
January 10, 2018, 10:53 am
These days there's money in just about any niche I imagine. But the question becomes, is there enough money in 'this one,' to make it worthwhile to crank out a line of adult coloring books and then market them.
January 11, 2018, 10:57 pm
You have a point. There is money to be made on any topic you can imagine. However, how much money you can make or how much effort you need to put to make a certain amount are some of the questions you need to answer. Recently I met a writer who has published over a dozen ebooks on Amazon Kindle. each of her books has over 20 reviews. Looks like she is selling well, however, she says she hardly makes $25 in a month as a royalty from her 12 plus books.

I see a lot of comments talking about this subject as a way of killing time when bored or for people who have little or no engagements.
I'll like to disagree with those remarks above. I read once in an article which states that a majority of seniors in homes especially those with mental conditions who participates in adult colouring show a great amount of improvements with regards to their mental states. Just as colouring helps kids, it also helps seniors in the same manner.
January 10, 2018, 10:49 am
I have not heard about it or even saw one online or in a physical store but I want to have one.
I'm really curious on this. I'm a painter. So, why not?
January 11, 2018, 11:42 pm
I agree that adult coloring books have become more and more popular, and I have been seeing them online and offline always nowadays. It's said it is a therapeutic way to help one releasing stress and feeling more relaxed too. It's nice to look at the transformation from plain to colorful or how you want it to be. Not only the process of coloring is healing, the end result is satisfying too no matter how we make it.
I won't buy a coloring book, as I am not a person who enjoys coloring, I actually prefer doodling as I can do it more freely. Doodling is healing too. Sometimes after I draw something, and I color it myself, and I actually feel better this way.
January 12, 2018, 6:50 pm
Same here. I prefer cooking up a weird character or portrait on a stencil pad in my spare time instead of coloring in a coloring book. But that's just me though.
January 13, 2018, 12:04 am
Well, it's not going to be allowed here in our country as we're very conservative. Many people would protest if that kind of book will be sold. I think it is indeed a good idea as a business as many will patronize it. This can be used to relieve stress, kill time or a past time for some. My idea is it can be sold here online and of course with age restrictions as to who can buy it.
January 14, 2018, 11:31 am
I think the OP meant 'adult' as in a coloring book for grownups. Not 'adult' as in pornography or smut related.
January 22, 2018, 7:36 pm
Hahaha... to continue your remarks...It is in fact an upgrade of traditional coloring books, with amazing detail and a different form of difficulty. It is not even near of being malicious in any sense. It is a wholesome and user-friendly way to kill time and be creative as well.
February 4, 2018, 9:00 am
I've seen those and I do like them. In my country we don't have books like that of our own, we just get the ones you can find on Michael's or Barnes and Nobles. Personally, I love the ones with Mandalas, they are meant to help you increase your attention, and to focus on a single task. All of them, come with stress relieving patterns, they are affordable for everybody, and even not so grown ups can handle those. In case anyone here doesn't like them, feel free to give them to me as a donation hahaha.
January 18, 2018, 5:09 pm
Such things doesn't tickle my fancy for any reason. I have seen tons of adult coloring books both in real life and online but not for once have I considered getting it. It's sometimes messy from how I see it. Although I'm aware that some people actually cannot do without it but as you know what they say, individual differences plays a good role in what one likes and don't like.
January 28, 2018, 7:00 am
I'm not a great fan of coloring books but if you do have a market then why not produce and sell it? Right?
But that concept is intetesting, what if you sell a canvass with outlines, to be used by people who want to learn how to paint. Be it watercolor or acrylic. To me that's more appealing and feasible with grown-ups.
January 31, 2018, 8:07 am
Hello! This subject can be considered relative! I see no problem if these books are only for adults. After all, adults know what is the best way for them! But if the books are for children, then I do not support it! Children are still innocent and they don't know what they're doing. So, I think all parents should keep these books away from their children! Best regards!
February 1, 2018, 1:13 pm
Coloring books have been made for children for a long time. In fact, as a child, I used numerous coloring books. I never excelled in drawing and coloring, however, drawing and coloring was an important subject in the school.
The adult coloring book has a different purpose. It does not try to teach the adult how to color a book, instead, it tries to make the adults creative and help them manage stress and other mental problems by engaging in the creaative activity.
February 2, 2018, 6:09 pm
I've actually heard about this before, and I think it is a pretty good idea, to be quite honest. I paint as a hobby because I find it to be one of the most therapeutic activities I can do. Obviously coming up with ideas and drawing the outlines is the hardest part of drawing, so I think skipping that phase and going straight to coloring can be quite helpful for those who aren't so artistically inclined. I've noticed a lot of "child-like" activities becoming popular among adults, such as coloring and finger painting, because I think that many people have come to realize that we take life far too seriously as adults and are missing our child-like wonder.

I actually have the app Colorfy which is like an adult coloring book for smart devices. I can see their appeal as they are relaxing to do but I personally would not buy coloring books as I've never been a fan of actually shading and coloring in paper. I prefer a more digitalized style and I think it helps more when designing online stuff.
February 8, 2018, 9:16 pm
If I see an adult coloring book. I would definitely buy one. It is a good stress reliever and it can also help me too increase my creativity. I am actually a frustrated artist that is why I try my best to develop the skills that I have just for t he fun of it.
