Ethan loves playing Minecraft and this toy we were sent reminded him of this. He was ready to dive right in the moment he set his eyes on it. He had also already decided that he was going to create a Star Wars themed product.
Qixels are pixelated bricks that can be joined together with the help of water.
We were sent the Qixels Turbo Dryer and this set contains –
- 500 Qixels cubes
- 1 Turbo Dryer
- 2 Cube design trays
- 4 Design templates
- 2 Display bases
- 2 Stands
- 2 Plug in accessories
- 1 Bag tag & thread
- 1 Storage tray
- 1 Water spray bottle
It is fairly easy to understand how to go about starting off. First you take a design template and after fixing it into place, add the qixel cubes onto it. This is the tricky part as you will have to ensure that your hands are small enough to fit the tiny pieces onto the template deign, There are 4 designs to choose from – rocket, scorpion, viking and dinosaur.
Once you have added the qixels to the template, you need to use the spray water on. Use the turbo to dry out the excess water. Take out the excess water and wait for about 25 minutes.
Your 3D Qixel toy is ready. You can either make it stand with the help of the stand or make it into a bag tag.
Ethan had decided when he saw the Qixels box that he wanted to create something out of Star Wars so he used the paper template but created Luke.
I love the creativity that the Qixels allows. It also teaches the child how to be precise and patience as you do need to work carefully with the small cubes.
I also like that you can buy refills as though 500 sounds a lot, it soon gets used up.
The Qixels Turbo Dryer is available for £19.99 at all major retailers.
