One of my Little One’s favorite shows for some time now is Project MC2 that is a Netflix Original Series. I love the series also because it encompasses learning with fun and empowers young girls.
MGA Entertainment has an entire lineup of educational STEAM products from the Project MC2 show. We have reviewed a number of the Project MC2 products and have LOVED them. The newest Project MC2 product we have tested out is the Smart Pixel Purse and it has not let us down.
Watch the Project MC2 Smart Pixel Purse in action…
My Little One went head over heels with excitement when the Project MC2 Smart Pixel Purse arrived. She could not wait to get the Smart Pixel Purse out of the box and start programming her own images onto the purse.
The Smart Pixel Purse comes pre-programmed with 10 animations so the user can see how it works right away. In order to program your own animations onto the Smart Pixel Purse, the user will need either an Android or iOS device and download the free App. To check if your device is supported, check out the list of supported devices here.
My Little One had absolutely no problems at all using the App and creating her own animations. I actually had her using an older Android device that is not even listed as compatible on the Smart Pixel Purse list of compatible devices, and we had absolutely no problems or errors at all in creating multiple animations.
The device that is used to program and upload new animations to the Smart Pixel Purse is plugged into the purse with the connector in the inside of the purse. You unzip the top opening and plug in your device, then start creating the animation on the device and upload it to the purse. Once the creations are uploaded the device can be unplugged and the new animations are on the device.
I loved seeing my Little One create her animations. She created empowering sayings and wonderful pictures. She did not get bored of creating the animations and was so excited to see them displayed on the Smart Pixel Purse.
I have been impressed with how often my Little One has gone back to play with her Smart Pixel Purse. She does not get bored of it and loves to show it to everyone that comes through the door. People’s reactions are always impressed with the product and the creations that my Little One has made. Kids that come over for play dates cannot wait to get their hands on the Smart Pixel Purse and create an animation of their own.
The recommended age for the Smart Pixel Purse is 7 to 12 years old. I think girls even younger than 7 years old will enjoy the Smart Pixel Purse. The younger ages might need to just get set up with the App and their first run through creating, but will be pros before you know it.
I have read a number of reviews on the Smart Pixel Purse and I am surprised that anyone would give this product anything but 5 out of 5 stars. Let me cover a few of the things that I have read…
First of all, this is not a purse that your little one will be carrying around. The purse is a hard plastic to protect and house the technology inside. This is an electronic device meant to encourage your child to be creative, use their imagination, and program the purse.
The plastic purse is solid. I read one review where someone said it could break. Well, any plastic can break, but this purse is absolutely heavy, solid plastic and pretty darn durable. I am sure I could break it if I tossed it across the room, but of course, it is not intended for that type of treatment. Simple, normal care of the Smart Pixel Purse has ours lasting and proving to be durable.
There is a list of compatible devices on the website and I found it quite easily and provided it above so please check if your device is compatible or not. I also tested the Smart Pixel Purse out with some older devices not even listed as compatible and we had no troubles at all.
We have not experienced the App crashing or freezing at all at any time during all our times using and programming the Smart Pixel Purse.
We think that the Project MC2 Smart Pixel Purse is amaaaazzzing. It is a wonderful product that gets kids learning and programming while engaging in fun. The purse also encourages imaginative play while little ones act out their Project MC2 adventures with their Smart Pixel Purse in hand.
