Now your child can create dozens of pixel-style models with Pixio Neighborhood. This multicolored magnetic construction set allows children to create objects, characters, and structures using 160 super tiny cubes.
Each of the Pixio Neighborhood’s plastic cubes is about the size of a pea and connects on all sides. Inside each of the cubes are six powerful magnets that allow models to be easily assembled and disassembled. The Neodymium magnets are powerful enough to stay intact but not so strong that taking models apart is difficult. Each Pixio Neighborhood set includes both brightly colored and around-the-world flesh-tone cubes.
Pixio Neighborhood comes with a unique code to use for the exclusive content of the Pixio downloadable app. Here you will find countless interactive, 3D design ideas to explore. Pixio Neighborhood will help your child develop fine motor skills, spatial reasoning, creativity, and problem-solving.
Age Recommendation: 6+
CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
WARNING - This product contains small magnets. Swallowed magnets can cause complications leading to serious infections and death. Seek immediate medical attention if magnets are swallowed or inhaled.
My children (boy 5 and girl 12) BOTH love this set! Most toys are not versatile enough to keep a varied audience happy. This toy does just that! They both can find something to build that is within their varied skill sets. The app gives them so many options and the modeling is highly responsive. There are many different styles and options (dinosaurs, animals, people and more), enough to please everyone both young and not so young.
PROS: Easy to use, endless possibilities and small (which make it highly portable and great to take along wherever you may be headed). Some people may not appreciate the sizing but for us, it is a plus. Kinda like legos.
CONS: Sets don't have many pieces and they are expensive.
overpriced, more applicable as a learning tool for beginning mathematics, pieces scatter
