PopArtPixies.com - arts and crafts fun for tween girls
As part of my follow up to our fabulous NYC trip for the Pop Art Pixies Blogger's Premiere, I should preface by sharing a little bit about the site before getting into the nitty gritty of the tourist activities.
The Pop Art Pixies site by Crayola is a website designed for tweens. Girls can register for free, find out more about the pixies and personalize their online experience by selecting a nickname, creating an avatar, sharing bits of personal information (likes, dislikes, favorite color, favorite music, etc.) Online you can also meet the Pixies: Skye, Maya, Naomi and Tatum. Registration is free. I would give this site a "G" rating, so totally appropriate for children in my opinion.
Once registered, your girl(s) can navigate through the site to various games and activities, look over items offered in the Pop Art Pixies product line, earn rewards, invite friends to their network, print coupons, etc. My girls and I loved finding out more about the Pop Art Pixies and creating our own avatars.
Before we went to NYC, the girls and I created our own avatars and sent our avatars to Crayola - see mine @misaacmom and above. The girls thought it looked just like me! When we arrived in NYC at the hotel, we were presented with large canvas gift bags containing our names and personalized avatars. I thought this was SO thoughtful and it's is a wonderful souvenir. My girls love our bags and use theirs for sleepovers, day trips, etc.
If you get a chance, stop by the Pop Art Pixies and see what fun you can draw up! Also, stop back by Momanthology.com to hear more about our trip and how to bring a bit of the Pixie magic into your own home.
I was invited to the NYC event by Crayola. Our travel accommodations, meals, travel expenses and samples of Pop Art Pixies craft projects were provided by Crayola. I was not required to write a positive review. For more information on this blog and on my posting practices, please refer to the disclosure policy below.
