Sparking Creativity with Stikbot and Knitting


stikbot
Stikbots are easy-to-pose figures with suction cup hands and feet, which can stick to almost any flat surface. With the free Stikbot Studio app, available on iOS and Android, children can snap individual photos and stitch them together to make a film. The app has built-in music and sound effect options.

These toys from Z-animation studio brings imagination to life through stop-motion video using the free downloadable app Stikbot Studio, the Z-animation studio, and Z-screen technology.

It is fun for children to use technology similar to what is used in making movies to make their own videos. We had first seen and experienced the notion of green screen at TIFF several years ago and it is amazing how quickly similar technology is available for us to experiment with using our phones. These toys are a good way for children to create story scenarios that can prompt them to write their own versions.

If you enjoy making your own toys they you will like following the instruction on the Knitted Toys: 20 Cute and Colorful Projects book to make a teddy bear, propeller plane, fire engine or other cuddly toys. We like that the instructions are clear and easy to follow, the basics are also explained. The illustrations are inspiring and helpful as well.

The 20 toys range from such traditional items as a bunny and a puppy to winsome versions of more unusual animal companions ― a snake, bumblebee, mouse, caterpillar, and other endearing creatures. This book is suitable for knitters at all levels of experience.
