DISCLOSURE: I received Stikbots for free and was compensated for my time. My opinions are honest and I am not required to post a positive review. This post also contains Target affiliate links. I truly appreciate your support for Los Gringos Locos :-)
Stikbots are super cute little toys that your kids will have fun with for hours. One of my favorite things about Stikbots is that the concept is very simple. You have these cute little human models that you position on a green screen stage making short movie clips or animations. Just download the app to your phone, set up your green screen stage, chose your backdrop, hit record, and start modeling your Stikbot. That’s it.
If you visit the Sikbots site you will see that their motto is “Bring your imagination to life.” Using stop motion you can turn your Stikbots into whatever you want, perhaps that is “a secret agent, dragon-slaying knight, or the next rock star!” Pretty much whatever you or your little one can imagine you can become with a Stikbot!
You can also share your Stikbot video on social media. Be sure to use the hashtag #Stikbot so that others can find you and see your movie making skills ;-) The app is available on Google Play and the App Store and it includes various backdrops and a few editing options just for fun.
Stikbots has received several toy awards, and the makers of Stikbots hosts online contests where you win up to $10,000! How cool would that be?! Be sure to visit Stikbots to learn more. You can purchase Stikbots in Mexico at Wal-Mart and H-E-B. Or if you want to buy a gift online for your kids that they will be sure to love, check out Target’s options below:
And as always I feel the best way to express myself is via photos :-) Below you can clearly see the fun my kids had with their Stikbots. (Note: I didn’t realize till weeks later that the photos in this post had a green tint! I must have been a tired mom when I posted this… whoops… well at least the kids are still cute!)
They made several videos but I thought this one was the cutest. And yes, it is super short and high speed so pay attention :-) For some serious stop motion animation in action check out the Stikbots YouTube Channel. Signing off, Tina
