My nephews and niece came to visit the studio a couple of weeks ago. They're the exact age to which stikbots are marketed, and the tiny place blew their minds. Eli and Viv especially have been going crazy, making short animations ever since. I'm such a proud auntie..! One of the fabricators gave them a pile of stikbots to play with and they've been having a blast.
I wish I had such things as a kid. Not necessarily stikbots, but easy access to cameras and frame grabbing. heh. Back in the day it would have been a heavy, sits-on-your-shoulder VHS camera that you press record and stop as quick as you can, and hope the movement worked when you played it back. And after weeks of work you'd get the Ben Wyatt animation from Parks and Recreation. Yay for claymaysh.
Anyway, it's been fantastic to see them creating and to have kinda spurred that on.
