Qixels Kingdom Castle Play Set

This week we have been very excited to have been trying out Qixels Kingdom Castle Play Set from Character Online. Qixels are colourful cubes that fuse together with a spray of water, enabling little ones to build their very own pixelated characters to play with in their kingdom.

First we assembled the castle which was super easy with the interlocking pieces.

We then prepared the plastic trays that we would be using to fit the cubes too. You get the choice of 6 characters to create.


How To Make Your Qixel Characters

When you have decided which character you are going to make, each template is double sided. Place it facing against the plastic, flip it over so you can see your character through the spiky tray, and then put the tray with holes on top. You are now ready to put on the coloured cubes according to the template you are following.


Once all of the cubes are in place, you spray them with water giving them a generous covering (recommended 25 sprays at least). Then slightly tilt the cube for the excess water to drain and then leave to dry for 30 minutes.


When your cubes are dry, gently pull the top tray off the bottom tray to release your finished creation.

Jayden enjoyed playing with his Qixels kingdom. It made it even more fun that he had to create the characters himself. Overall it gets a big thumbs up for us, and for only £29.99 I feel that it is good value too.

Why not expand your collection ?

Qixels 3D Maker – Once they have mastered the technique of Qixels, children can take their designs to the next level with 3D. There are a variety of 3D characters to create including aliens, bugs and jungle characters. (RRP £24.99)

Theme Packs – There are so many cool designs to create including dinosaurs, pirates and even monsters! Once created, these pixelated characters can be used as individual toys to play with or make a great bedroom decoration. (RRP £9.99)

Mega Refill Pack – The fun is as endless as your child’s imagination with the Qixels refill pack. The pack includes 1500 cubes including 750 glow in the dark cubes. (RRP £12.99)

*We were sent this set in exchange for our honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own*

    This looks amazing. I reminds me of when I used to make endless Lego Castles as a kid!

    This looks like fun! My son loves creating things with fuse beads, so he’d probably enjoy this too.

    These sound really great. Love how it is set with just water. I remember something similar from my childhood that you had to set with an iron. These are much more child friendly! Thanks for the great review. I’ll keep them in mind. Kate

    What a fabulous idea! I love that these fuse together with water rather than having to be ironed like Hama beads. I also like that they make up into real toy models which can be played with – a bit like real-life Minecraft! We’ve made Hama bead models before but then wonder what to do with them.

    This looks like the perfect activity for half term. A creative toy with a sense of adventure, what could be better. With the sense of magic, it all seems rather exciting.

    This sounds like a fun set. I can see my kids loving it.

    We love Qixels in my house. They are clean educational fun and the kids love making all the figures. This looks like a great set. Thanks for sharing.
