Children consume media more than ever. Videos and games are at their fingertips around the clock

 

A recent study showed that two out of three kindergartners would rather play with a tablet than with other children. Piximakey was made to change that.

What Users Say

A few testimonials from children, parents, pedagogues, and teachers:

I thought that all animated films were made in the computer, but in stop motion you animate real world things. I can make my toys come alive and it's much more fun than just watching Youtube.
Emma
Aspiring animator, 9
Seeing my son’s face when he pressed play for the first time was priceless. Suddenly, his toys had come alive – and he made it possible. The technique is simple and easy to learn, but the result looks like magic.
Camilla
Parent
I've been using stop motion in my teaching a few years now, and it's a great tool for working with media, technology, and storytelling. Piximakey is the package deal I've been missing.
Michael
Teacher
We had some concerns about screen time in our kindergarten and considered getting rid of the iPads completely. Stop motion turned out to be a meaningful and social way of using these technologies, and Piximakey is a great tool for this.
Nick
Pedagogue
"Before Andy got his Piximakey for Christmas, I thought that he had forgotten me and his other toys forever. Now we are back together, and I'm playing the hero of his stop motion Western! Thank you, Piximakey!"

FAQ

We are launching Piximakey via the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.com. When you pre-order a product via a Kickstarter campaign, you only pay if the campaign succeeds. You can pay with most credit and debit cards and everything is secure.

The production of Piximakey kits starts when the 30 day campaign ends, so you should expect a couple of months from pre-order to receiving the product – delivery estimates are stated on our Kickstarter page. To reward you for your patience, you get the product at a special discount.

No, but depending on your location, your order might be subject to import duty. If in doubt, ask you local tax authorities. Piximakey ships from within the EU, and European VAT is included in the price. Shipping costs are added to your order when you enter your address.

We will at a later point. For now, you get the greatest discount by pre-ordering via Kickstarter. By choosing an “Early Bird reward”, you get the product cheaper than anyone else – but stock is limited, so you have to be quick.

If you are not happy with the product, please get in touch, and we will do what we can to help you – we offer returns as well as replacement parts.

Who is behind Piximakey?

The vision and the people who created this

Piximakey started as a vision of a learning platform for children of all ages. A place where children can embrace the digital tools available to them, and at the same time be present in the physical world.

In 2020, we won’t try to separate children from their digital devices, but we want to help them find new ways to be creative, active, engaged and, most importantly, together.

We at Spilværk have made this way of thinking our philosophy. For every idea we create we seek the golden middle way between digital empowerment and playful tangible human connection. We call it…
