My son LOVES getting packages in the mail, even when they aren’t for him, because they mean (at the very least) another cardboard box to play with!
When he opened our latest box and discovered a package of Qixels, he couldn’t hide his awe!
“Look! How cool!”
Qixels (pronounced “Quick-suls”) is a creative activity set that inspires kids to use their imagination with cubes that fuse together with a blast of water to create an 8-bit world of monsters, warriors, ninjas and more, all while stepping away from screens. With Qixels, Moose Toys has carved out the “craftstruction” category, the newest creative activity play pattern that appeals to boys too. Let the imaginative, fine motor play begin!
Upon opening up the toy, I explained how to use them and then let him go to town. (Wanna know how they work? Check out this tutorial!)
He made a small orange monster with wins. It took a LOT of patience and fine motor skill for a four year old. But with Grammie’s encouragement, he stuck with it! I’d love it if they came out with more patterns to follow, especially simpler ones. But again, my son was up for the challenge.
My son was most excited about spraying the creations with the Fuse Blaster and then whisking it around in the Turbo Dryer.
Even my youngest couldn’t contain his excitement and had to try the Turbo Dryer. (He made a “soccer ball”. He actually really impressed me with his interpretation!)
The hardest part for the boys was waiting the 20 minutes for the designs to dry. But once complete, they were in awe!
The unique play pattern in Qixels inspires boys to be creative and hands-on as they construct their favorite pixelated characters using the design templates and their own imagination.
