A gift that grows with your loved ones


Whether you're making a LEGO brickfilm with lasers and explosions, animating flip books, reshaping reality in a claymation movie, or watching a flower bloom using time-lapse photography, you can bring any object to life in minutes with this easy-to-use software.

Stop motion animation is an educational pastime that can be enjoyed by kids aged 7 and beyond, for school projects or at home. It's a hobby where children can develop new skills over time for unlimited play possibilities.

  1. STEM education

    Featured in Newsweek’s highly prized ‘Best in STEM’ list, and a STEM.org Authenticated educational product, the kit is popular with hobbyists, children, parents, and teachers.

  2. Special Educational Needs (SEN/SEND)

    Animators develop a range of multi-sensory skills when creating stop motion videos. Everyone in the group can take on a role that suits their abilities such as model maker, storyteller or director.

  3. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)

    Creating animated movies offers a wide range of activities that support the development of social and emotional skills, including responsible decision making, self-management and social awareness.

  4. Balanced play

    Animation promotes a healthy, non-competitive use of technology, inspiring children to step away from their screens to make models and write stories with their friends and siblings.

  5. Family fun for all ages

    Create a family memory forever by making videos for friends and relatives. The kit is so easy and fun to use that everyone will want to get involved (grown-ups included).

  6. A new lease of life for old toys

    Toy cars can drive around the living room, toy dinosaurs can roam free in the garden, LEGO models can build themselves and teddy bears can have picnics: all through the magic of stop motion.
