As parents we’re always trying to find ways to engage our children and keep them busy. Sometimes it’s simply to preserve our sanity but for the most part we realize how important it is to fuel imagination and foster creative abilities, so we constantly hunt for the latest and greatest toys that we think will accomplish these things. As a blogger, I get the opportunity to work with some amazing companies that create products that are specifically designed to entice the natural curiosity in children and empower them to embrace their own creativity.
OgoSport is one such like-minded company. They’re made up of a team of designers but they don’t just design products, they create toys for children that are meant to keep kids active and busy. Their products for all ages that keep both mind and body active all while keeping the fun flowing. Founded in 2004, OgoSport operates under a certain formula that is applied to every product they create. Their aim is to encourage active play while incorporating exercise, incorporating fun for both children and their parents/grandparents to foster important play time together, allow for open-minded exploration and experimentation and a battery-free experience.
While working with OgoSport I was able to review one of their OGOBILD with AnimateIt Studio Kit and Camera. If you have a little one who likes to create, this is the kit for them, especially if they have a love for movies or making videos on their tech gadgets. The kit includes Animate It! Express software, created by Aardman Animations Studios (the creators of the animated movie, Wallace & Gromet) and is the premier UK education stop-motion animation software. The software is fantastic for kids who have expressed interest in creating their own stop-motion videos and everything they need to get started is included in the kit.
Your little one will start by learning the basics of creating stop-motion animation and soon be able to create their own. Not only is the software easy to follow but it’s also fun, hands-on learning that’ll keep them busy for endless hours as they learn and ultimately create videos of their own. They’ll be proud, when at the end of the learning process, they’re able to create stop-motion animated videos and share the end results with family and friends!
