HUE Animation Studio : Easy way to animate and great fun

Bought this for my son for his 10th birthday, he loves it, so easy to use and great fun. The availability of colours of this product is great too.

My 9 year old just loves this present. It was soooooo easy to set up and use. She hasn’t stopped making characters, scenery etc. We use an old shoebox as the ‘set’. In fact, we are all in the films so great family fun too.

Pretty good product we’ve made some lego movies already which have proved entertaining and full of graphic violence of the red felt-tip variety. My 9 year old thinks it is great. Our old computer is groaning abit though due to the size of the files generated. Roll on buying a new computer. Here are the specifications for the HUE Animation Studio:

My children aged 6 (girl) and 9 (boy) love theirs. This is the coolest toy for your children for christmas 2010 and beyond, it allows them to be able to have computer time, arts and crafts time, and really use their imagination, and no fighting as they can all create their animation and be the camera controller. If going away for the holidays, it takes up no space to take with you, and you can use it with anyone else’s computer and a little modelling plasticine, or clay. Young and old can master this unique toy, and for under £50. 00 it is definitely one for all the family’s stocking. Nephews, nieces godchildren, one each. The bonus is we bought one for a friend and now the two 9 year olds also talk to each other and play funny games with the camera and skype.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great camera better than using your tablet/phone
  • Very nice product, super easy to use
  • Great product for all ages!

Brilliant classroom resource. I was lucky enough to be given one of these to try with my year 1 class at school. Since the beginning of september it has been passed throughout the school and every class has loved it. It has supported learning in all curriculum areas such as science (zooming in on leaves) and literacy (making stories come to life with play dough animations). The camera is super easy to use and my class of 6 year olds can access it independent after a bit of training. I’ve also used the camera to show their work on the iwb. Great classroom resource and i’m sure we will want more in school soon.

An excellent starting point for kids for stop motion animation. Easy to use straight from the box with minimal set up. The kids found it straightforward and mastered it very quickly, producing animated videos in no time. The software is intuitive and versatile and is a full version. Just use the product key on the cd sleeve to activate it.

    Very nice product, super easy to use. Very nice product, super easy to use. The software is a bit clumsy here and there, but works. Biggest gripes i have are that you can’t resize the picture and film views even on larger monitors, and that it doesn’t allow for non-english characters in texts.

The ergonomic, colourful design of the cameras is an instant attraction. It is intuitive to use; pretty much plug it in and you’re ready to go. I did have a few issues installing the hue animation software from the disc but my email to the support desk was answered within an hour and the problem solved – great customer service. The animation booklet is full of projects and ideas to get an animation novice started. I would thoroughly recommend purchasing this package to fulfil the requirements of the ict curriculum regarding animation as everything is in one place. All you need is your existing pc or laptop. My son loved using his toys to create an animation, the sky really is the limited as the product builds on children’s natural curiosity and desire to investigate. The program feels “safe” – my son wasn’t scared of making mistakes as they were easily undone.

    1. This kit is so easy to use, and to set up. The software was easy to install as well. The only thing i would say is that you need to install quicktime, which i might not have known had my sister not been there to help. Other than that though, it was fast and really easy to get to grips with.

  9. This animation studio is fantastic. I researched other animation studios before i made my purchase and this one kept reviewing as the best so i went for this one. I agree with all the reviews i read. My 8 year old can easily operate it on his own. The only talent needed is imagination. And the quality is fantastic.

      1. This is a must have for any child age 6 upwards. Keeps them occupied in a positive educational way. My 8 year old son has been on this for most of the week creating his own animations using plasticine and legomen. Once installed, i left him to it and he managed to navigate the programme easily, with very little support. I just left him to it and he has created so many animations. It also links with the national curriculum, as it helps support digital literacy and information technology as it promotes, creating and saving own work.

    Excellent item, quickly delivered. Excellent item, quickly delivered. Much fun being had in our house as a result of the purchase. Can’t praise the hue customer service team enough – after a small installation error (on our side), they gave us so much help to rectify the problem.
