When I first heard of Stikbots, I had no idea what they were. The guys looked a little goofy and simple, but Goonie seemed to love them. Then we were sent the Stikbot Studio and it started to make a little more sense to me. While the Stikbots are pretty simple, they’re articulated and paired with the app, these little guys can make some pretty awesome videos and images.
StikBot Studo is a complete set that comes with 2 action figures, reverseible green and blue screen, and a tripod that will hold your phone. With the studio, you simply can pose and stick your Stikbots anywhere and use the Zing Stickbot app to record the fun you’re creating. The app allows you to change the background and put your Stikbots in fun and funny locations for their adventures and you can change them as you go. Stikbots also have a wide variety of accessory packages you can select giving your characters personality, character, outfits, hair and more.
It seems that Stikbots are super popular with kids around 7-10 age range. But what most of them don’t realize is they’re learning the basics of stop animation. From posting their characters taking a shot, moving them again they can create their own movies and videos and have a lot of fun with the toy. StikBots blend playing with toys and technology bringing them to life. And at the end of the day, your kids have their own animations and images to show for it. We love this type of creative play!
