When your grandparents went to school they carried Crayola products in their bags. That’s how many decades the brand has been trusted and revered for delivering arts and crafts products with good quality and reasonable pricing. Now they are into the 21st century in a big way with a creative play accessory for making emojis. This equipment is all kids need for creating sixteen different stamps and markets that are emojis.
In case you are not in the know, an EMOJI is one of those digital symbols used in text messages, Facebook posts and Twitter tweets that represent various emotions. The very first emoji was the smiley face, and now Crayola lets kids stamp 16 of them on their stuff.
Children six years and older are who Crayola says their art set was designed to be enjoyed by. If you’re going to let kids any younger than they probably should be supervised. We feel that if they are younger than eight they could be making quite a mess with these items.
From looking at the online reviews we discovered that children as old as 11 have been enjoying creating Emoji stamps with this. Kids below six years old have also enjoyed it with assistance from adults.
If your boys and girls like arts and crafts they will love this Emoji Maker set. It’s also a nice way of luring them away from the television or handheld devices. It is also a nice way of enjoying quality time with your kids.
Thumbs Up Points
When you first unbox it, all of the bits and pieces could seem somewhat confusing, but if you read the directions or watch the video it will soon become clear what is is that you need to do. We appreciated the fact that it is a great arts and craft product everyone in the family can use together.
It also instructs young children about colors and how they can be mixed to form other colors as well as how to measure ink.
After your kids have made the Emoji they also will be very proud that they have actually created something with their hands, which will encourage them to become more creative.
Thumbs Down Points
Making emojis can be a bit messy so you do need to keep watch on what is happening and make sure you put down newspaper first for protection. The paints are described as washable so you should be able to clean off any stains but it would be wise to be ready beforehand.
The stamps are kind of small and you need to practice with them before you can get that ‘perfect emoji’
What Consumers Are Saying
Average Amazon.com rating is 4.2 out of five stars.
My 6 year old was perfectly content to pass away the time making markers. It has the feel of a science experiment.
The main con with this kit is that the stamps are not that great. They tend to be too wet
I’ve been having so much fun with my 5 and 11 year old girls making emoji markers with this kit.
