Holiday 2021


Get ready to put this quick gift in your shopping cart for your young, aspiring artist. The Pixter by NSI International will help any child be more confident in their drawing skills, and it’s surprisingly simple to use. The Pixter is a simple concept, but NSI executed the design so perfectly that parents lavished enthusiastic praise. Everything on the Pixter has a purpose, and they are all well thought out, from the packaging to the minimal buttons. Pixter takes a step-by-step approach to drawing. They don’t overwhelm the child with too many instructions at once. This helps teach them how to draw something specific and teaches them an even bigger lesson; Everything takes time, and it’s always best to approach a task step by step. And if you approach it like that, you’re more likely to be successful. There is a good range of pictures for most children to choose from and a few of different skill levels. It’s simple to toggle through the pictures with Pixter always ready with directions guiding children about which lines to draw next. The Pixter helps with building the skill of drawing as well as any product we’ve seen. It’s among the best in the art category to educate, enhance, and get children excited about drawing. Additionally, Pixter travels really well, so you can easily provide your kids an on-the-go creative outlet. With a price of just under $20, parent testers told us that they felt Pixster was an affordable gift, suitable for anyone’s wishlist this holiday season.

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:
