Pix Brix building blocks allow your creativity to flourish as you design your favorite characters or create ones from your imagination!

The below flat designs, created during October and inspired by Halloween, are great examples of the masterpieces you can design with Pix Brix.

We can define creativity, but where does it stem from and reside? How do the Pablo Picasso’s and Frida Kahlo’s of the world create an artistic masterpiece from a blank canvas? We’ll let the scholars hash out these great human mysteries, but one thing’s for sure– people’s creativity never ceases to amaze.

Our Pix Brix building blocks facilitate creativity and stimulate the imagination. And they happen to be compatible with most major building block brands so they can easily be integrated with your existing building blocks! But if you prefer purely pixelated creations, the sky is the limit for what you can create, design, and build using only Pix Brix!

Below are a few Pix Brix creations, including nifty keyboard holders!

Building block toys can be creative masterpieces whether you're recreating your favorite superhero or building something solely from your imagination.

Pix Brix Flat Designs

Pix Brix Flat Designs

Pix Brix building blocks offer endless hours of pixelated fun. In this blog, we’ll focus on flat designs and how Pix Brix are a lot more convenient than the “other guys.”

Building blocks are popular for many reasons, but the main one is likely the imaginative component. You can either create your favorite character or design a scene straight from your imagination! How cool is that?! With the influx of technology and streaming services that let us binge watch TV shows for hours, it’s nice to flex those brain muscles from time to time! 

Above designs made entirely with Pix Brix! #pixbrix

Other similar products are way more inconvenient than Pix Brix. You either have to purchase a base plate separately (this is in addition to the actual pieces) or you have to use a hot iron and parchment paper (iron can be dangerous, and since the design isn’t necessarily locked in, it can easily be disturbed).

Pix Brix takes the headache out of all of that. With our patent-pending design, each piece interlocks with the other. No base plate is needed nor an iron or any other materials besides the Pix Brix themselves. Easy peasy! 

People are creating some true Pix Brix masterpieces where they use THOUSANDS of pieces. Be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram to check out the awesomeness! And be sure to use hashtag #pixbix so we can see your cool designs too! Happy Pixelating!
