Lights! Camera! Action!
With kids these days knowing more about technology than we do, I’m always excited to let my children play with technical toys that are going to ignite their imagination!
If they’re going to play on their phones, it better be educational! a future Movie Maker? with Stikbot Studio Pro, it’s all about creating animated images, videos and sharing them with family and friends! without the help of Mom and Dad.
Today my 10-year-old daughter is taking over the blog to give you the scoop!
Hi, it’s me, Sophie! this weekend I had a chance to review the Stikbot Studio Pro with my cousin who was visiting from out of town. It was pretty cool to show him what Mom and I get to do for fun. He thought it was even cooloer that we were going to make a movie just using my phone.
First, we read the instructions and downloaded the free Zing StikBot Studio app. That was pretty easy. Next, we assembled the green screen which came with the package. It was like setting up a stage for our bots. Be careful that you don’t rip the stage while opening the box since the green screen is made up of cardboard The suction cups made every pose easy to maneuver. You can really get silly and creative here.
After looking through the Zing StikBot Studio app for backgrounds, we both agreed on the space background but you can also choose your own background from your own camera roll if you prefer to do that too.
We then went over the different poses we were going to use for our animated film. We really felt like we were making a movie. We had a lot of fun imagining what our StikBots could do and say. We noticed that we could eventually edit our video to add audio such as our own music and even a narration of our own voices. That would be pretty funny once we set up a script, which we plan to do when he comes back to visit.
What I like about the Zing StikBot Studio Pro is that we can collect more StikBots for future films and my friends or family can bring their own StikBots to create an even funnier film with different characters. We can even make our own StikBot Youtube show if we wanted to. I will definitely play this again because of how much fun I had and I can’t wait to see what’s next with StikBots.
Stay tuned for more of Sophie’s Scoops!
