Crayola Expands Pop Art Pixies Craft Kit Line with “Fab” New Activities for Tween Girls

Easton, PA – February 13, 2011 — They’re popular, artistic and love making cool stuff! They’re Skye, Maya, Tatum and Naomi -- the Pop Art Pixies. These true-to-life characters, each with unique personalities and special interests, are the basis for a line of Crayola activity kits for tween girls also called “Pop Art Pixies.” New activities including “Fab Snaps” designer fabric patches that snap together to create multi-layered fashion accessories and an “Ice Jewelry” making kit are coupled with Popartpixies.com, the characters’ online world. This online world allows tweens to “hang out” with the Pixies, make new friends and show off their crafty creations through an on-line community created just for them.

The Pop Art Pixies characters form a group of friends that tweenage girls can relate to. Whether they’re eco-friendly and into saving the environment like Skye, love to throw parties like Tatum, all about music and technology like Naomi, or love expressing their creative side like Maya, tween girls will enjoy learning about themselves and sharing their unique style at an on-line destination that totally gets them.

The craft kit side of Crayola Pop Art Pixies just expanded with the introduction of several new design kits. Each kit lets girls make and personalize something new that reflects their personality and interests, then share it online with their friends by uploading photos of their creations at the Pop Art Pixies Web site. Here, they can discover new things, express themselves without judgment, build their self-confidence and enjoy a sense of belonging.
