Keeping Master 6 busy over the holidays can be mission impossible sometimes – I think being a lion tamer would be easier. The constant whining of “I’m bored” or “What can I do now” are chanted through our house every 32 seconds during the school holidays. These school holidays I had the pleasure of reviewing Qixels a super fun product from Moose Toys.
Qixels is essentially a creative product that comprises of tiny little plastic cubes that when blasted with water create a very cool qixel design. Each pack comes with a design kit and trays to create your picture on making it very easy for kids to follow.
Master 6 tore open the box screeching at the top of his lungs “These are the same ones that are on TV, Mum!” (Things are apparently way cooler if they have been TV). He quickly got to work creating and within 20 minutes (or one green tea and 10 magazine pages) he was finished and ready to move onto the next step of spraying his design with water. I helped with the spraying which was very easy and required 25 sprays which meant Master 6 had to put his maths head on and count with each pump. After the design was sprayed with water we let it sit for 30 minutes and just like magic the tiny cubes molded together to create a design that Master 6 showed off proudly. So thrilled he set to work and started his next project and continued over the next few days until he ran out of cubes. Given how much he loved the Qixels, I popped down to Big W and purchased another 3 sets and let my little creator get back to work as I enjoyed some ‘me-time’ with a green tea and a recorded episode of The Real Housewives.
Of all the reviews I have done on kids toys this one without a doubt has been my favorite, Master 6 loved it and I enjoyed seeing him get creative and using his mind rather than being glued to the TV or video games. Watching him proudly display all of his designs in his bedroom and starting his own ‘Qixel art gallery’ was very heart-warming and I think it’s safe to say the Tink’s are addicted to Qixels. 10/10 for this toy and big snaps to Moose on a great product.
