Lights, camera, action! This trendy toy is roaring back to life with the Stikbot Dino Movie Set, perfect for your little kid's directorial debut. Stikbot allows kids to create their own stop-motion animation films using figurines, a DIY green screen and props. Building the set does require adult assistance (the pieces need to match up correctly to numbered slots), and a bit of care too, since the props and backdrop are made of cardboard. Once it’s ready, the movie set becomes a great way to for kids to engage in imaginative play on their own or with friends. There are six poseable dinosaur figures available (sold separately), so kids can also explore and create their very own prehistoric world. Stikbot also has a free smartphone app (Stikbot Studio) that lets kids film multiple frames on the set, and then stitch it all together with music and sound effects to create their very own movie. Jurassic Park Jr., anyone?

The dinosaur-park structures are interesting and multi-playable. They make for a great movie set.” —Craig, dad of one
