Bought this for my son who spends most of his time either playing on his Nintendo ds or reading books. I knew this could be a tough hobby to get him into, and as a visual communication lecturer, I also understand how time consuming animation maybe before you get great results. But it's great! Really easy to use, and the camera is really quite good. The ability to select several frames and copy and paste reversing their order is just like the higher end software you get. You can lay several sounds onto one film! The only drawback so far is you can't have several movies overlapping and fading into each other. Hey! But for the price, and the fact that certain limitations can actually make you more creative, this product is an EXCELLENT gift for anyone who wants to tinker into the world of animation!

My 9 year old just LOVES this present. It was soooooo easy to set up and use. She hasn't stopped making characters, scenery etc. We use an old shoebox as the 'set'! In fact, we are all in the films so great family fun too. Love making up new voices!!! Excellent product!!!!!!!

Here is the first animation made by my daughter, she and her friends have had hours of fun making simple short films. The bendy camera is perfect as you can position it however you like. The software is very child friendly just press a button and you're away... beware, started off making little plasticine models but now nothing in the house is safe from being in her animated films - recommended

I tried to help an 11 year-old grandchild attempting an animation project by putting together different applications available cheaply on the web or packaged with Windows but the end result was terribly complicated, badly connected and difficult to use with lots of opportunity for the whole thing going wrong and result in discouragement. The Hue Animation Studio is not cheap but it is a straightforward joined-up system which overcomes all of the above difficulties brilliantly. The 11 year old had everything up and running with an animation scene and titles created within an hour or so of opening the box with no help at all. Together with another 11 year-old and some low-voltage shelf lights and improvised scenery he embarked on a blockbuster project and the two boys were happily absorbed for hours. Thoroughly recommended. A second set since purchased for the other 11 year-old!

Back in 1974 I remember being glued to a BBC programme called The Do-It-Yourself Film Animation Show. Well, in those days, such a hobby was frighteningly expensive, elaborate and laborious so all most of us could do was dream we would one day emulate Walt Disney. If only this little bit of kit had been available then!

It really is so easy! I was inspited by visiting the 'Animate It!' exhibition in Bristol's @Bristol museum. This does everything you could do at that exhibition. You can pick it up in minutes and soon you'll think you're the new Nick Park.

Top tip: toy cars and engines of the Thomas and Friends variety are excellent objects to animate - really simple and you can make them do all sorts of things when you're first starting out.

No more twiddling your thumbs on the long winter nights - and kids will absolutely love the results! A truly amazing hobby in a box.

An excellent starting point for kids for stop motion animation.
Easy to use straight from the box with minimal set up.
The kids found it straightforward and mastered it very quickly, producing animated videos in no time.
The software is intuitive and versatile and is a full version. Just use the product key on the CD sleeve to activate it.

Always at a loss to find presents that are educational, yet fun for the grandchildren. At last something that fits the bill, this animation studio is great, the kids love it and have spent hours making short animated films, we have all been entertained and amused by the resulting films.

Both the five year old and the eleven year old enjoy it equally (even caught the adult experimenting with it).

My children aged 6 (girl) and 9 (boy) love theirs. This is the coolest toy for your children for christmas 2010 and beyond, it allows them to be able to have computer time, arts and crafts time, and really use their imagination, and no fighting as they can all create their animation and be the camera controller. Not much space it needed. If going away for the holidays, it takes up no space to take with you, and you can use it with anyone else's computer and a little modelling plasticine, or clay. Young and old can master this unique toy, and for under £50.00 it is definitely one for all the family's stocking. Nephews, nieces godchildren, one each!! The bonus is we bought one for a friend and now the two 9 year olds also talk to each other and play funny games with the camera and skype.

Regards
