Started off Annoying

This will be short and simple. I am 18 years old, 90% of things I do I do on my own. How is Pixton about to tell me when I try and sign up for a college project that since Im not 19 I need my parents to allow me to sign up... What? Excuse me? What difference does 18 and 19 make? Literally nothing if you're 19 you're still probably as mature/immature as you were when you were several months or a year (tops) younger. Also, Im a month away from being 19. Sorry Pixton, but Im not using you because you have stupid rules and screw that. Im actually so mad about this and none of y'all probably care but JESUS CHRIST. Im not about to ask my mom and dad for permission, that ended a while ago.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (10 ):

The creators of the award-winning Pixton show their love for comics with a site that is thoughtful in design and thorough in its offerings. In short, they’ve thought of everything. Comic-building tools are unbelievably easy to use and simple click-and-drag actions let users create and customize all parts of their comic. Users can even upload photos to their comic or just pop through to Flickr commons and borrow one there. For the comically-challenged, “remixing” lets you borrow someone else’s comic and tweak it to make it your own. Users can also share their comic online, download and print them, or even put them on a t-shirt.

Pixton’s multiple awards (Webby, People’s Choice, Digital Media to name a few) are well-earned and well-deserved.

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.
