StikBot Zanimation Studio is an amazing stop motion animation set to shape kids' imagination and creativity into endless possibilities. Each StikBot set includes two exclusive solid colour StikBots, a tripod, stage and two prop boxes.
StikBots can be posed in countless ways - their limbs, torso, and even neck can be positioned at multiple different angles! The stage is designed for the Stikbot to be easily posed from multiple angles using their suction cup hands and feet. Two prop boxes can be placed in front of Stikbot to create a 3-D effect. Have a green Stikbot? Flip the set and it becomes a blue screen to be used with a green StikBot.
The free Stikbot Studio mobile app, available on iOS and Android, snaps individual photos and stitches them together into a film, complete with built-in music and sound effects. (Device not included)
The green screen function of the app allows kids to upload their own photos or use the images available in the App as the background in their stop-motion animation movie. Share your creations and see what others are making all over the world.
