We were sent the Pretty Pixels Eraser Maker set to review.  The kids have loved making cute erasers (or as I still call them rubbers) to give to their friends and also add to our own collection.  It’s a fun craft and handy as it makes something useful that we always need.  Take a look at our tutorial about how to make erasers using the Pretty Pixels Eraser Maker Set and to find out what we thought:

We decided to use the provided designs for our first attempts and then to make our own eraser designs once we’d got the idea.

The Pretty Pixels Eraser maker is not suitable for under 3’s due to the small pieces.  It is aimed at children 8 years plus.  Isabelle is just 7 and enjoyed making erasers under my supervision.  Caitlyn, 10 and Rebecca 12 enjoyed making erasers on their own with supervision while using the microwave.

Making erasers is very fun and great for design and fine motor skills.  It can also test your patience as a few times the kids accidentally nudged their designs and needed to redo their pixels.  The best things come to those who are patient and wait!

We will  continue to make Pretty Pixel Erasers (the design cards are great for young kids to begin simple cross stitch patterns too!) and will definitely purchase another set in the future (or buy refills if we can).

There are other sets available:

Mini Pack RRP £9.99

Starter Pack RRP £16.99

Deluxe Pack RRP £24.99

Would you or your child enjoy the Pretty Pixels Eraser Set?  Which design do you like?
