John Adams recently launched their fantastic new Facebook page JA Craft Club, packed with ideas, tips, competitions and reviews. It’s the perfect place to inspire creative fun. To celebrate the new Facebook page we have joined up with them to review some products from their fabulous creative toy range. First up is Pixelo Neon, the electronic pen that you can create oodles of dotty designs with.
The Pixelo Neon from John Adams has an RRP of £18.99 and is suitable for ages 6+. The set comes with everything you need to create fabulous pictures with dotted effects. Here’s what you get:
A Pixelo electronic pen (requires 1 x AAA battery not included).
7 different coloured markers (6 neon 1 black).
10 neon printed sheets to colour and complete.
Daisy was really excited and couldn’t wait to get started. To begin you choose a colour, remove the lid and push it into the electronic pen until it stops. I was quite impressed that Daisy found this part easy to herself. I did have to remind her not to press on the nib to hard though.
The Pixelo pen has a simple on/off button, once it’s switched on the pen will move quickly up and down to create a dotted effect.
Daisy chose the sugar skull colouring sheet and quickly got to work creating her design. She held the nib gently on the paper and switched the pen on, slowly moving the pen around the colouring sheet. Daisy held the pen upright to create dots and then tilted it slightly to create stroke effects.
After using the pen she decided to colour some of her picture in using just the markers. She also decided to freestyle on some plain paper.
The only thing to note is that I did keep having to remind Daisy not to press too hard on the nib of the markers. Other than that I think it’s a great product.
I also had a go of the pen and it’s very addictive, I was reluctant to give it back. The Pixelo neon gets a big thumbs up from us.
