My kids are really into digital games and videos. You could easily say because my husband and I are very tech oriented so are our kids. One thing we encourage with our girls is taking the time to create things and to play. That tech free time is important and I enjoy toys that we can do together.
It’s one of the reasons why we purchased our first set of Qixels when they released the original toy last year. Now they’ve come out with exciting new additions like a Turbo Dryer and Fuse Blaster. Qixels is an activity set that inspires kids to use their imagination with cubes that fuse together with a blast of water. With the cubes little ones can create an 8-bit world of monsters, warriors, ninjas and whatever else they can imagine. If you’re looking for a great tech free gift idea I might suggest Qixels. Our oldest daughter is really into Minecraft and so right away she connected to the 8-Bit world and started creating.

You can use this Qixels demo for a how-to. Kai created a sword first using the Design Creator. Using the Turbo Blaster she had fun spraying her designs with water to fuse them together. Once you’re ready to dry be sure to use the Turbo Dryer. The Turbo Dryer will fuse the designs in half the time! Kids can lay the Qixels out on the Fuser station, spray with water and close the lid. They’ll have a blast pressing the button and drying their creations in no time! She also used the Design Creator to create her own design. She decided to make her own Santa Claus to celebrate the holiday season. I think the Santa turned out really great and our girls had fun creating different things with their Qixels. You can find Qixels in the craft isle at your favorite toy store just like we found them at ours. I like things that help our kids create and use their imagination. This is also a great gift that we can do together and all have fun creating.
You can find Qixels in stores nation wide and view the commercial to learn more.
