OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Make pixel art that's also functional with Pretty Pixels Eraser Maker. The kits in this lineup allow kids to make their own erasers with cool pixelated designs, such as happy face emojis, pandas, butterflies, and more. There are three kits to help you get started making erasers and try out more advanced designs: Mood, Fashion, and Deluxe. But no matter which kit you choose, the process is the same.

You pick the template that you want to use and insert it into the maker. Peel off the eraser pixels that you'll need. Each template tells you how many pixels you'll need of each color. Once you're done, remove the template, add half a teaspoon of water onto the eraser surface, and close up the maker. Pop it in the microwave for 90 seconds and then put it into a bowl of cold water for 10 minutes.

Each kit includes an eraser maker, eraser pixels, templates, and other accessories depending on the size of the kit.

Is It Fun?

In terms of erasing, these are just okay. But in terms of cuteness, these definitely get high marks. And we think that kids will probably most enjoy the process of making the erasers and showing off their cute collections to friends. It's easy to do, and there are multiple designs and themes to appeal to a variety of kids.

Who It’s For

Pretty Pixels is for ages 8 and up. Because this involves the use of a microwave, adult assistance is required. 

What To Be Aware Of

The instructions are easy to follow, but pay careful attention to microwave times. Even though the instructions say 90 seconds, microwave times can vary depending on what type of microwave you have. There's a chart in the instructions to help you out.

These really don't erase that well.

The Deluxe ($39.99), Fashion ($16.99), and Mood ($10.99) kits are each sold separately.
