StikBots are stylish poseable characters used to make your own animation films with lots of different backgrounds.
Each Zanimation set includes one solid colour StikBot person and dog, a tripod, stage and two prop boxes. The free iOS and Android StikBot Studio mobile App snaps individual photos and stitches them together into a film, complete with built-in music and sound effects. StikBots can be posed in countless ways - their limbs, torso and even neck can be positioned at multiple different angles. The green Z-Screen function allows you to upload your own photos or use the many images available in the App as the background. Flip the set and it becomes a blue screen to be used with a green StikBot. Film, pause and edit your StikBots then share with friends or on StikBot's popular social media site # StikBot. Ridiculously good fun and very addictive!
Eight year olds like more challenging construction sets, and are starting to get seriously interested in science. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. They can also start doing cleverer magic and love doing tricks. And anything they can throw or shoot at someone else is also very popular.
