The mobile animation studio for phones and tablets Live on Kickstarter in Summer 2020 

 

Play Video

Join the play revolution

Children consume media more than ever. Constant access to 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.

Stop motion for everyone

From three years and up. No previous experience needed

Open the box, download the app, and you’re ready to make movies.
If you can click a button and move things with your hands, you can animate.

Unleash your creativity

Bridge the gap between digital and physical play

Tell stories  frame by frame by moving, bending, or breaking stuff.
The only limit is your imagination.

A mobile movie set

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 toy 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.

FAQ

Have a question that’s not answered here? Feel free to write us.

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.
