StikBot Zanimation studio – Lets go crazy and create
We recently had the pleasure of trying out the new StikBot Zanimation Studio in exchange for our honest review. We have had such a fun time playing with it Jack loves it.
When you first open the box it doesn’t look like much for the cost of around £12-15 depending were you purchase it from but once you see what you have to do and can create its actually a pretty cool toy for kids to learn and experiment with.
The set comprises of 2 Stikbots, tripod, green screen background and additional boxes. The additional boxes are to help with positioning the Stikbots as needed. You will need to down load the Stickbot app which is free so you can make your images and movies.
It took myself and Jack a few attempts to create an image but once we had worked it out it was really easy and we have had loads of fun making videos and pictures. The app is really simple to use and has a demo option but it’s more a trial and error play around kind of app and toy and see what you can create.
Our first picture was a StikBot invading Jack and his rugby team when they were mascots for Salford red Devils.
Our first video was a simple one using the images that came with the app. On this video we make the StikBot do cartwheels on the moon, not bad for a first attempt.
After we had worked it out we have been able to be a bit more adventurous. Below is our StikBot playing on the trampoline.
You can have some much fun with the StickBot your children can really use their imagination they can do it on their own or you can help them. I had as much fun with Jack it was great to have some mum and son time together. We now need to work on a longer animation as we have only managed a few seconds so far but we have loads of fun ideas so keep and eye on our You Tube Channel.
You can purchase additional StikBot in different colours to go with the red and orange one supplied. You then just need a phone or tablet that you can download apps to and your up and running.
You can purchase the StikBots for £12 from The Entertainer.
The cost of the Zanimation studio is £12-15 and addition Stick bot start at around £3
