Pixicade Pets is an innovative and accessible STEAM kit that allows children to create virtual pets and their universe! Each kit comes with 2 QR codes to access the app, 8 vibrant washable markers, an easy grip pencil, 37 fun color stickers, and an educational Learn to Draw Pets book. The revolutionary technology allows one to design magical and mythical creatures, their personalities, and worlds on paper and then interact with them on a hand-held device. People must nurture and care for their pets to help them flourish. This pioneering pet design system provides an open ended and unique play experience powered by imagination! It’s easy to create a pet! First, you draw your creature & its egg; snap a picture of your work in the app which comes alive on your device in 30 seconds; and then play, care, and interact with your creations in the Pet Universe! The app allows kids to problem solve so that the player can evolve. Kids develop meaningful relationships with their beloved pets. As children design toys, accessories, foods, and home goods for their new friends while they explore, they get to play more! This friendly universe encourages kids to be adventurous, nurtures creativity while building confidence in their artistic skills, and is gender neutral while being inclusive.
