Create Amazing Custom Animations Quickly! With Crayola Easy Animator, you can easily create custom animated videos using your own character designs! Use in-app characters, or design your own on an Easy Animator Coloring Page and scan it with the app using your device’s camera. Your design becomes a 3D character on screen! Choose cool moves for your character, create custom backgrounds, record your own voice and sounds! You can also playback your video and save your creation. If you have the Crayola Easy Animation Studio, place your mobile device on the included stand and position the posable mannequin in front of your device. Move the mannequin into a series of poses. Your on-screen character mimics the mannequin's position and the app captures the action. Easy Animator creates additional animation in between your captured poses for full, smooth motion! Your favorite poses can also be saved and applied to any character, allowing you to create custom animated videos with unlimited creative possibilities! FEATURES • Design your own character from scratch using one of ten different templates! • Includes custom-built, high-quality animation sequences such as: Breakdance, Back Flip, Golf Drive, Air Spin, and many more! • Create custom colored backgrounds with one of six designs or take a custom photo. • Record your own voice, sound effects and music to complete your custom video creation. • The Easy Animation Studio retail package includes: o Fully articulated and posable Mannequin that allows you to create custom poses and animations.

  • Need an update

    By Mazzitto
    App doesn’t appear in the privacy/camera settings to allow it to access camera, therefore isn’t working.

  • Doesn’t work

    By Matt McD.
    Have tried to get app to work on both a iPhone X and iPhone 8. Download the app but it says we need to give camera permission. Go through settings and privacy but the app doesn’t appear anywhere to be able to give it access. Tried looking up the app through settings and it doesn’t sho up there either. So basically we have app that doesn’t work. Have kid who is disappointed. Strong recommendation to pass on this!
  • This is a joke.

    I got 1.0. Great. I get the app. Great. I add the camera access... WHICH ISNT THERE! So I get 2.0. It asks me for the camera access, (after it takes FOREVER to “download”. How about doing that while the APP is downloading?) great. It works this time. Now to scan my character. OH WAIT, THE 1.0 CHARACTERS DON’T WORK EVEN THOUGH 1.0 IS BROKEN FOR ME! I don’t know if this is my device, (iPod touch,) or iOS in general, but this was a complete rip-off. It deserves no stars whatsoever. But the least I can give is one. (Apple, are you listening?) This review was slightly edited from my other review on 2.0, but is basically the same.
  • Camera doesn’t recognize app

    By Shwoolard
    I tried to follow the instructions in the app but my camera is not recognizing it so we can’t scan. What a bummer for my little one who received this as a birthday present! Please fix the app to ask permission from the camera!! Update: still not fixed
  • Really Disappointed

    By dad467271
    I bought my daughter the set for this app. She was really excited. When we arrive home she unpacked the whole set only to open the app and see she needs to enable camera access. We go to her Settings and the app did not show up. There are much more reviews exactly like this. Do not get this set. You only waste money.
  • It does not work

    By Micky605

  • Very bad

    By AilsaBrow
    It does not work the camera doesn’t work and is just bad
  • I want to be fair

    By Doubletap2008
    Crayola, I believe, made this app mostly so that younger kids could have a taste of making movies or learning how to do stop motion animation, which is always fun. But this is only a TASTE. Especially for older users, probably age 9 and up, this would get boring quickly because there is not much you can do. There is a limited amount of characters you can pick from, and you can only create 10 poses, which basically gets you no where. At least it worked for me, but it’s is still limiting. It might be fun, but you can‘t do a lot.
  • Does not work anymore!

    By sergeantwhite1981
    This app will not request camera permissions. It does not show up in the camera permission list. Don’t waste your time or money like we did. I’ll never buy interactive Crayola products ever again.
