With blockbuster hits like Frozen and Inside Out, there are few movie genres that enchant and inspire kids more than animated films. Using a steady hand, a bit of patience, and plenty of imagination, junior animaniacs can create stunning moving pictures of their own, thanks to a crop of kid-friendly stop-motion animation apps and studio kits. Click through our animated album to zoom in on some of the coolest products to help your mini-movie moguls shoot their own stop-motion masterpieces!

LEGO Movie Maker

LEGO’s Movie Maker app may be barebones (the interface includes only three tiles: Movie Gallery, Instructions, and Make a Movie), but it definitely packs a wallop. With the “snap your fingers” function to take photos, which the app stitches together to create a stop-motion movie, young LEGO movie makers won’t need to worry about maintaining a steady camera. Stickers can be added to individual frames as well as title cards to the beginning and ending of movies. Bonus tip: apply filters, music or sound effects to take your LEGO stop-motion movie from ordinary to totally awesome!

For ages 6 & up.

Available on iTunes, free.
