This product has gripped the whole family with animation-fever! It does exactly what it says - enables you to make animated movies in minutes. Even our eight year-old has been able to use it with minimal assistance.
My criticisms are quite minor - firstly, the tripod is a bit flimsy and doesn't work at all if your camera's tripod socket is not positioned centrally. Secondly, the plastic figures provided are a bit flimsy - we had to superglue the arm of one of them, and the plasticine tends to weigh them down so they don't stay up or outstretched. Finally, the plasticine provided isn't huge in quantity, and the colours easily get mixed up however careful you are. We had to purchase more almost straight away, and it isn't easy to buy in any great quantity unless you want to buy bright primary colours - flesh tones are hard to come by.
It's worth being aware what you're actually purchasing. The product makes it clear that you need to have a PC and a digital camera. It doesn't provide you with any kind of software beyond a demo disk with downloadable sound effects. It assumes you have Windows Movie Maker (and most people have). Therefore, most people will find they have 95% of the things needed to make one of these movies without buying 'Animatazz'. That makes it seem a bit overpriced, but it's worth bearing in mind that the step by step instructions are very very useful if you haven't used Movie Maker before.
Also bear in mind if you have a modern PC with Windows 7 on it, you will not have Movie Maker loaded on but Movie Maker Live, which is a watered down version and the step by step instructions contained in Animatazz will not apply. You can download Movie Maker 2.6 for free. I have not visited the Animatazz website as yet, and this issue may be dealt with on there, but best to be advised in advance.
