If you have girls and Netflix in your life then you have probably heard of Project Mc2, and you most likely like the idea behind it. The idea behind it is that smart is the new cool. A team of super-smart and seriously cool girls who use their love of science and their spy skills, which is exactly what you get with their Smart Pixel Purse.

You and your child can customize the purse’s multi-color LED display with your own designs or phrases using FREE iOS and Android app. If your child doesn’t have their own phone, and mine doesn’t, you will have to work with them on this one. Not a bad idea, as it makes for good parent/child time. The purse does come with 10 pre-programmed animations as well a smartphone.

The purse has a good length and a flexible strap, despite looking quite stiff. However, the zipper on the top is plastic and does not actually open. The back (plastic) snaps open for you to connect your smartphone, and to store it there. That’s the only thing you can really store there. The purse is more for designing your own pixel image on the front than for practical uses. But at 8 years (recommended age) your child probably doesn’t have a whole lot she needs to carry in a purse.

The concept is interesting and supports your kids S.T.E.A.M. skills, which is becoming more and more prominent today. This would be a great holiday gift idea for the upcoming holiday season!
