Build Your Own Movie

Learn some of the magic behind stop-motion animation with this comprehensive construction / production kit. Stop-motion animation utilizes the principle of "persistence of vision" to create the illusion that inanimate objects are moving through a series of still photos displayed continuously like frames of a movie. A collaboration between a popular toy company and a UK animation studio, this kit pairs the imagination-fueling fun of a building toy with an easy-to-use stop-motion camera and software to edit individual frames together and share your results. The figures you can create lend themselves to the incremental posing of the stop-motion process, while the camera and software will have you shooting and sharing the antics of your own unique characters in no time. 101 pieces. Made in China.

    Comments about STOP MOTION ANIMATION KIT:

    My 9 year old niece was delighted with this gift. She already has some experience with stop motion film. She is busy planning her first movie. My six year old niece was very desirous of the clamation figures so this product appeals to a variety of ages. These two products go well together. They are appealing and interesting. I think my niece will learn alot using the products.

            My goddaughter showed an interest in stop motion animation, but wasn't certain exactly how it worked. This gave her a hands on way to explore and grow. She loves it!

                    Comments about STOP MOTION ANIMATION KIT:

                    My son is very into stop motion animation and saved up his allowance to get himself a book/kit about it, only to find out to his disappointment that the kit didn't have everything he needed to actually experiment with it. Then I found this kit and it's been awesome. The software is easy to use, the camera appears to be of great quality, and there are lots of bits and pieces included for building little people and things. My only complaint is that the pieces are a little difficult to pop together, but that might loosen up the more we use them. A bonus is that even if you don't like the included figures, the camera and software can be used to animate anything, from Lego to blobs of clay. So far I'm very pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone with a child interested in stop motion animation.
