You'll Flip!

Create your very own mini movies with this fun and creative flipbook kit! Just like cartoons on TV, these flipbooks short stories through a series of colorful step-by-step images. Made in China. Kit makes 4 flipbooks (30 pages each).

Kit includes:

- 2 pre-drawn flipbooks
- 2 blank flipbooks
- 6 non-toxic markers
- 4 clips

Choose from Butterfly/Frog Kit or Rocket/Robot Kit.

Uncommon Knowledge: Flipbooks were first created in the 1860s, but didn't take off until the 1880s when photographer Edweard Muybridge and inventor Thomas Edison worked with flipbooks as experiments prior to movies. In the 1920s, flipbooks became popular as both toys and ways to learn certain activities.

      I was very pleased with the quality of this product. When I opened it, I couldn't believe how little it cost. It looks like an expensive gift. I purchased it for my 12-year-old nephew who loves to learn new things and make his own creations. It's perfect for him.

        This was a great gift for my 3 year old daughter. We were able to color the flip book together. It's so easy to have her feel like a big part of the project as she could also help rip the pages and put them together numerically into the flip book. I also gave one to my 6 year old nephew who loved it.

          My 6yr old niece loves this flip book kit. She started playing with it as soon as she opened it at Christmas. Also a great teaching tool to show how movies come together one picture at a time.

            It is a really fun activity to do! I like that it includes blank sheets to create your own and even comes with suggestions. But I would also like to see more colors of the markers in the set. Cool, fun item!

            Service and delivery comments:

            It arrived in good condition. I think delivery took a little while.

                  I wish they had listed the age it was good for (5+), it may have been too young for my cousin, but he seemed to enjoy it nonetheless.

                  I gave this to a ten-year-old boy. He stopped playing with a couple of his other gifts and started to draw in this right away.

                    I bought this as a gift for siblings of a new baby. I thought it was a creative and unusual toy that was inexpensive and appropriate for both boys and girls.
