Kid Pix games are part of a series of educational programs that is functionally the same as a painting software, but with a few extra features for kids. Kid Pix differentiates itself from traditional painting programs, such as MS Paint, with the addition of unique features such as custom brushes.
Kid Pix Deluxe, which is the fourth version of the Kid Pix software, includes a "wacky brush" function, which creates random effects on the blank canvas. The program also includes a mixer tool and "unique stamps," which places clip art on the computer screen. Previous versions of Kid Pix, such as Kid Pix Studip, also include a slideshow feature that allows users to add music and images to their work.
