GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine is a free app where kids can create their own stop motion movies. Kids can draw, color, create the movie screen by screen to see how stop-motion and animation works. It is designed for kids 4 and up, but even younger kids can use it. It is a great free app to have for family fun.
When kids first start the app, they will watch a short movie explaining how animation works in a story setting. Then kids can start creating their own movies.
Each movie can have 12 screens, and kids can play the movies at any point of the creation to get a feel on how the final production looks like.
There are a wide variety of tools kids can use to create their pictures for the movies. They can take a picture of themselves, they can draw with different colors and different sizes of pens and brushes. They can use some pre-made stamps. Of course, they have eraser if they change their mind, or use un-do to take off the earlier actions.
Once kids finished their movies, they can save them in their own BloxTown Film Festival gallery. They can also choose to share the movies with families and friends via email or text.
GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine is a fun app teaching animation that directors of all ages can be proud of. It is free.
