Just when I think it’s safe to emerge from the dizzying heights of loom bands, there’s something else rubbery and brightly coloured to take my kids’ fancy.
Both equally functional as it is fun, the rather cool Upixel products are potentially fantastic gifts for both children and creative adults. Bags and other products in the collection have a flexible silicone base plate that allows you to design the look you want over and over using little silicone pixels. The choices in the Upixel range are seemingly endless, with an impressive line up including school basics like the Junior Backpack (priced $59) and Pencil Case (priced $24), plus there’s a bevy of phone covers, adult bags and purses.
A heap of pixels are included with each product to get you started, but you can also buy extra colour packs in 24 shades in case you have something specific in mind. Pixel designs are endless – if you can imagine it, you can pixel it. Cast your eye over the Upixel gallery for some inspiration and ideas – it’s nothing short of amazing and will leave you pining for Upixel products for yourself rather than the kids!
Get your hands on the most creative and clever accessories getting around directly from Upixel. Please note due to the nature of small parts, Upixel products are recommended for children aged six and over.
