Often, we’re writing about classic toys that have been given electronic updates. But in the case of the Emoji Maker, the digital age has inspired a manual plaything!

Crayola’s Emoji Maker lets kids create and assemble up to 16 different custom emoji felt-markers. Each marker is filled with coloured ink and capped with an emoji nib, like a heart, smiley face, animal, pizza slice, and others.

The colour mixing guide shows kids how to create a wide variety of colour combinations. In addition to the three ink bottles and components for 16 emoji markers, the Emoji Maker also includes two customizable cases that can be personalized and used to store the markers when they’re not being used.

The Crayola Emoji Maker checks in at $19.99USD and is available from a variety of online retailers.
