I LOVE the idea of this! A toy that will teach your child some basic Games Design skills. Let's face it in a world of tech and apps, our children will need to know what they are doing. Ask a child what they want to be when they are older and I bet many will say a Games Designer - now they can be with Mattel Bloxels, Build Your Own Video Game. Just £37.68 delivered at Amazon Seller: Shop4World.
Mattel Bloxels Build Your Own Video Game Toy allows your child to create a game with boxes.
Includes Game board, 320 blocks, challenge poster and instruction manual, the Boxes Builder app is downloadable for free.
Make and animate play spaces, characters and objects just the way you want it.
Everything in this set works with the FREE Boxes Builder app to transform your physical work into digital. This allows your work to be on-screen and playable.
Get started by downloading the FREE Boxes Builder app onto a smart device. Then use the 13 x 13 Game Board and coloured Blocks (Boxes) to design a room, and details for your very own video game.
There are eight different colours and 320 blocks to make characters with, so you can go on and on with this really.
Once your game is ready, it can be posted it to the Boxes Infinity Wall to share. This means other 13-bit game designers can play your game and buy your very own design to use in their own games. In return for this you will earn coins. The coins you earn can be used to buy content from other players.
If your kids love Minecraft, Mario Maker and the likes, then this is the Toy for them.
