Are you looking for an excellent opportunity to get your kiddos to tap into their creativity? You’re in luck! In today’s post, I will be sharing why you should grab a smART Pixelator from Flycatcher Toys for your little ones.
As parents, my husband and I love and are committed to giving our two kiddos opportunities that allow them to grow and learn through play.
Play allows kids’ imaginations to run wild. To create avenues that will strengthen their willpower and boost their confidence—giving them a sense of their innate power and abilities. To feel good about themselves and feel safe expressing who they are.
A smART Pixelator from Flycatcher Toys offers your kids this and so much more!
It is recommended for seven-year-olds and up; however, my five-year-old did amazing with this.
The smART Pixelator from Flycatcher Toys is a great way to help kids build on their dexterity, as you can see from the video below.
Four Reasons You Should Get The smART Pixelator For Your Kids
Apart from building on their dexterity, the smART Pixelator from Flycatcher will offer your kids :
1. An opportunity to stay focused
Working with beads and pegs requires a lot of focus and attention. Your child will be so motivated to get their creation done that they will dive all of their attention into the art, strengthen their concentration muscles, and become more present in the now.
Kids’ mindfulness has been receiving much attention lately because it has been shown to have so many benefits for our kid’s mental health, from helping kids perform better in school as well as feeling happier.
The smART Pixelator from Flycatcher Toys will encourage your kids to dedicate their time and efforts to creating beautiful images.

2. The smART Pixelator from Flycatcher Toys helps build resilience
This is an excellent way to help your kids build resilience.
It was such a beautiful sight to see my kids picking up those beads and inserted into the Smart Pixelator time after time when it fell off or accidentally got knocked over while attempting to plug another bead in place.
Let’s face it, not every one of us got steady hands. Myself included.?
But the beautiful thing is never giving up, and I believe it’s because the smART Pixelator is not dull but rather intriguing that they were committed to getting their artwork done.
3. Cultivate Patience
As I mentioned above, a bead will get knocked over every so often, and you will have to replace it. But the kids didn’t seem to mind or get frustrated. Instead, the kids kept going at it.
The beginner stage takes about fifteen minutes to create ( but this may differ depending on your child’s age and ability). The advanced and professional levels can take you about forty-five to sixty minutes.
Because the smART Pixelator is so much fun, this time will fly by without anyone recognizing it. But yes! It will help both you and your kiddos to cultivate Patience.
4. The smART Pixelator From Flycatcher Toys allows your child to tap into their creativity
Flycatcher Toys allow kids to take their creativity to the next level. And the smArt Pixelator didn’t fail when it came to doing this.
Using pegs, beads, or sequences, your child can build fantastic art with the smART Pixelator. All she has to do is tap into her creativity and create art.
The skies are definitely the limit with this smart tablet!
How Does The smART Pixelator Work
The smART Pixelator From Flycatcher can either be plug-in into an outlet, or you can use four C batteries (which are not included) to power on the smART Pixelator.
It also comes with an SD card with over 60 preloaded images, which you and your child can use as guides to create your art.
The SD card comes with its storage kit, which I loved. There is also additional space for SD cards.
This smart tablet uses light technology to inspire children to build pretty much anything.
Your child needs to choose a design and place pegs, beads, or sequins to create their art using the light on the smart tablet.
The light also shows you how to build in 3-D. How incredible is that?
Your child can also upload her favorite picture to create her own designs. Now, isn’t that amazing!
This set also includes a storage tray to hold your beads/ pegs or sequins. The tray can easily connect to the smART Pixelator. You will also get two tweezers which your child can use to quickly pick up beads to place on the tablet’s screen.
You will want to download and install the smART Pixelator app from the Google play store on your child’s tablet or your mobile device.
Once the app has been downloaded, you will be prompted to login into your Flycatcher account or create a Flycatcher ID if you are new. You will then be asked to enable your Bluetooth ( make sure the SD card is inserted into the smart Pixelator) so you can connect your tablet or mobile device (whichever one you choose) to the smART Pixelator.
Once you are on the app, you will have many options to choose from, from beads to 3-D beads, pegs, sequins, or bracelets. And don’t forget the camera option, where you can create and customize your own unique picture.
You will have a beginner, advanced and professional options to choose from when working with beads,
For sequins and pegs, it’s a bit more advanced, which we did not try when writing this review.
When your art is completed, carefully remove the tray from the smART Pixelator, cover your art with the ironing paper (included), and iron the beads together.
You will want to iron the beads for your kiddos for safety reasons. We iron our creations for about a minute. But again, this will depend on your iron settings and the size of your art.
Allow your beads to cool for a few seconds before removing the ironing paper. And voila! You did it!
Below are a few pictures of the images we did.
Where Can You Purchase The smART Pixelator
If you are impressed by the Flycatcher Toy’s smART Pixelator like we were, why not join on in the fun and grab your family’s very own?
And please don’t forget to grab additional beads, pegs, or sequins, all sold separately in sets. This set won’t disappoint.
Yeah, it can get a bit messy with curious toddlers wanting to dip their hands into the beads (thanks to their brilliant colors), which can quickly get all over the floor.
But, hey! It’s all part of the fun.
