Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

To watch videos, parents will need to buy add-on software for $20. Each of the nine new video software titles lets kids watch about 20 minutes of cartoon or live-action footage, and the software includes a video creator that lets kids manipulate the video footage to create something new.

Watching video on the Pixter is not like watching it on a TV screen -- it is grainy, and the action does not flow smoothly. However, the video creator software is easy to use and kids will enjoy recombining snippets of video to create their own short movies. Don't buy Pixter Multi-Media for its video playing ability. Rather, select this handheld if you are looking for an excellent, highly portable, compact creativity tool. Its activities will spark your child's imagination.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
