    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my first adult coloring book. I really do love it. There's a nice blend of intricate, detailed areas for folks that like close up coloring and areas that are bigger for those that enjoy large area coloring.

I was just delighted to have found a mini–stress toy for my child who collects giraffes, but now that it's here I'm quite delighted with the great shape of this. Most stress toys are round or oval, but this one is a great design for gripping and squeezing — we love it!" —kemilie
