    Demonstrates animation in action

    This was fun to build and learn more about animation. It was fairly easy to assemble and my son loved watching the still pictures come to life. It came with ready drawn slides but my son also was prompted to experiment and make his own pictures.

    Easy to put together

    This was a fun and easy project to put together with my daughter. It was nice to learn how to build a bearing and the magazine did a great job explaining how a ball bearing works. Great exposure and introduction to animation and my daughter was fascinated watching the images fly and move across the screen. The magazine also had a lot of other things to build that we were able to accomplish easily!

    Great concept and project

    It was a cool, historical project that was able to teach basic skills for kids. It was neatly packed with easy instructions and exposed my daughter to new ideas. It was interesting to learn more about animation and the completed project ran smoothly.
