I bought this as a 10th birthday present for my grandson, who loves to make plasticine figures and invent stories for them. However I think that this book would suit a wide age range. Inside there are instructions for several types of animations and links to a site showing what the results should be. A very good buy.

Very easy to use. I have had great fun with my 11 year old son making videos. He is able to follow the instructions himself. Sam animation is a little glitchy - need a little bit of patience.

I got this for my 7 year old daughter who is interested in stop motion.
Easy to follow and fun with loads of ideas.
Brilliant value for money, so I bought one for my daughters friends birthday!
Also very speedy service.

!This a very good book and the free animation software looks quite good too, but unless you have a camera which is suitable for streaming video/pictures you can not use it. There is nothing written in the book which tells you that you have to have a specific type of camera (most cameras are flash memory type not streaming!), it doesn't even tell you this on the website, it just says that there is no camera connected.

My daughter loves this book,
It gives you a code you can use to download animation software for free which is useful.
It has step by step instructions for creating your own animations.

I purchased this book because I am just about to start in claymation having previously done 2D animation. I found it fun to read but it also gave me the start I needed. Well done Klutz!

Didn't realise that it was aimed at such a young kids' age group, so I made a mistake.
It also refers to other resources online that no longer exist.

My 9 year old was able to follow the instructions and make basic films within an hour. Would recommend this as an ideal gift for any tech-minded child.
