Toys that allow kids to be creative and expressive are good ways to help them develop important skills. This Crayola Emoji Maker does exactly that, and is perfect for both boys and girls. It’s certainly a good gift idea to consider, but please consider reading our review below first.
Crayola have been a trusted brand for many years and are well known for their quality arts and crafts products. This Emoji Maker consists of all the equipment you need to make 16 colored emoji stamps and markers. The 16 emoji’s include different faces, animals and sunglasses.
For those who are asking what is an ‘Emoji’ it basically a little image that is commonly used to give expression to a text message in digital form. If you are still confused think of the little smiley faces you see in emails and on Facebook that’s an Emoji.
The set is marketed for kids of 6+. We would suggest parental supervision for children under the age of 8 as this could get a bit messy.
Reading reviews online kids up to 11 have been enjoying creating Emoji stamps with this. Children younger than six years old have also enjoyed it with help from parents.
If your child enjoys arts and crafts they will love this set. It’s also a nice way of getting them away from computer or TV screens. It is also a nice way of spending some quality time with your kids.
Things We Like About Crayola Emoji Maker
On first look all the various components might look a little bit daunting but if you read the instructions or watch the video it will soon become clear what to do. We liked that it is a great arts and craft set that the whole family can join in with.
It also teaches young children about colors and how they can be mixed to form other colors as well as how to measure.
Once the child has created the Emoji they also will be very proud that they have actually made something with their own hands and will encourage them in their creativity.
Things We Didn’t Like About It
It can be a bit messy so you do need to keep an eye on what is going on, make sure that you put down newspaper first. The paints are described as washable so you should be able to remove any stains but it would be wise to be prepared.
The stamps are a little small and you need to practice a bit before you can get that ‘perfect emoji’
Is The Crayola Emoji Maker Worth The Money?
We’d say it is a reasonable price for an arts and crafts set that has a lot of repeat play value. Siblings could also play with this at the same time making it good value if you have more than one child using it.

We have seen it being sold online at Toys R Us and Amazon – it’s getting some good reviews on Amazon at the moment so it’s worth taking a look at what users are saying and also their best suggestions on getting the most from this Emoji making set.
