Following on from our previous Project Mc2 review Big A was sent a smart pixel purse to review.
Project Mc2 is a team of super-smart and seriously cool girls who use their love of science and spy skills to undertake missions for top-secret organisation, NOV8TM (that’s “innovate”!). 2016 saw the launch of two new seasons of the Netflix original show, new products, and two exciting new characters – Devon D’Marco and Ember Evergreen.
Spring 2017 will see the girls return with a host of exciting new S.T.E.A.M focused products as seen in the Netflix original show, with further products hitting shelves in Autumn. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for a super-secret bonus episode launching on Netflix in February!
Marian Davis, MGA Entertainment Marketing Manager, said: “Project Mc2 was launched to inspire the next generation to pursue their interest in S.T.E.A.M subjects. With a popular Netflix show and more exciting products aligned with S.T.E.A.M launching in Spring, we hope to continue encouraging young girls and boys that Smart really is the New Cool!”
Big A was super excited to unbox and get started and has enjoyed creating patterns and images, even Little K has got involved creating her own images. It says suitable 8-12 years however we feel that younger children would be able to navigate the programme however they are unlikely to have a phone so like Big A would need to borrow or use an ipad/tablet (which doesn’t fit in the purse).
A bit about the purse – Pictured below the bottom item is the Pixel Purse. You can personalise the multi-colour LED display with custom designs and phrases by using the free iOS and Android apps.It is made from plastic and opens with a catch at the top with a fake zipper to open it and an accessory hanging clip. Inside is a holder for a phone with a wire to plug it in. You can customise colours designs, words, fonts and speed.
You need a phone or tablet to plug into the bag in order to transfer the images you create onto the bag but it is really simple and Big A managed to navigate the app without any assistance. The purse isn’t overly functional as a purse itself as there is not much room inside however it is an awesome toy and has created hours of amusement. Big A was excited to show it off to her friends too.
Good points –
- Encourages design and learning
- Good quality screen
- Feels quality and unlikely to break
Areas for improvement –
- The purse could have a larger area inside to make it more functional as an actual bag
- Connect wirelessly (although this would mean product costs more)
- Soft edging feels quite rough
Overall – Big A absolutely loves this purse and is getting quite good at creating more accurate pictures on it now. Both girls enjoyed playing with this purse and I had a go to and it was great fun! This would be an awesome present for any Project Mc2 fan.
Thanks for reading.
