Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fun I got this toy for my niece, and she loved it. She didn't really use it for stop motion

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hours of Fund My two boys were so excited to receive the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator and the product has not disappointed. The app was easy to install and they quickly set up the backdrop and decided on what the first story line would be. My kids love showing me the final product, we watch their movies over and over. Overall it is a great toy, the only two issues the boys expressed were they wish it had come with more figures and it took more time then anticipated to make a decent length movie. My husband helped make the first movie so that they would know what they were doing but after his initial help they have had no problems using it on their own.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for a rainy day My daughter was excited to test this out. She loves creating and she loves MineCraft. I thought this would be a great match for her. It came with a lot of pieces. My daughter is 9 so she is old enough to be able to keep things together but be leary if you think your child isn't responsible enough to keep small items accounted for, Downloading the app was pretty straight forward. It kept my daughter entertained and indoors during a bad thunderstorm. Although it is a great product it isn't something she has cared to play with again. The product is the kind of quality that I have come to expect from Mattel. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for MineCraft fans! My daughter is 9 and loves Minecraft! This set was so much fun for her and very easy to set up and use! You must have a phone/tablet to download the MineCraft stop motion app to use this set but its a nice app that she easily figured out on her own! The set comes with 4 Minecraft figures, The Creeper, Spider Jockey, Exclusive Steve, and Exclusive Creeper. Its also a fun set just to play and set up in different ways. We purchased a package of other Minecraft figures and they go perfect with the set. If your child or you love Minecraft this is the perfect gift or collecters item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for making Minecraft movies I received this product to review. All words expressed are My opinion only!. I Love this product, I like that the product has an app called Stop-Motion Movie Creator that can be downloaded in google play store for devices compatible such as devices Android 4.2 and higher, Not all Android devices are compatible. Can also use app in some I pads and kindle fire. Although I did not get the app to work on my device that is compatible with app, I still got to play around with the Toy and create My own with camera using the background and Minecraft pieces that came with the product. It's pretty fun to create Your own Minecraft world right in real world in your home and enjoy playing with it. My kid's Loved it. all ages 6-12 for my kids. The pieces the product came with are very durable and won't fall apart or break easily in my eyes. I love the product and would purchase as a gift for friends and family and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i loved this toy its a great deal! My kids loved playing with this toy. Pros would be it's very creative it teaches them to use their imagination more and be more creative . Cons would just be the little mine craft people can't hold their accessories very well. Over all a very good product I would recommend this to my friends with kids. It's a great game for kids with siblings to play with and or with their parents! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minecraft fun The Stop-Motion Movie Creator was a wonderful addition to my son's Minecraft collection. After downloading the app on his iPad he meticulously built various sets for his Minecraft movies and then spent hours filming them. The best feature of this product is that it was an open-ended activity that captured his imagination and allowed him free reign to design various sets and action scenes. We would highly recommend this product to Minecraft lovers between the ages of 7-12. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minecraft Stop-Motion is a Hit My son LOVED the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator, he loves all thing Minecraft, and was very excited to receive this item. We quickly talked about what stop motion movies are, and he took off on his own. He has made several movies and loves to show off what he worked on. He played for hours the first night, and asks daily to get it out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for all ages! My son loves anything Minecraft, however this Stop-Motion Movie Creater was on a whole new level! With this imagination and creativity come first. I loved how many options there are in scenery and objects. It is super easy to set up and switch between scenes. The app is very user friendly and has many options that truely make your creation one of a kind. The only con I have is your child will not want to put it up! The possibilities are truely endless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for your Mincraft Lover :) I was given this product as a sample to review and give my honest opinion. I have 2 boys (5 and 10) that were so excited when this arrived. They usually just watch people play minecraft on youtube (boring. They realized they could make their own movies with this they were stoked. I wish that it automatically saved the movies since the boys don't always remember to save them, but they love making new ones as well. It comes with so many options (blocks, backgrounds, etc) that you never have to make the same thing. All in all we are super happy to have this at home to play with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings out the best of their imagination My 6 year old son was so excited with this minecraft stop motion movie creator. Me and my husband both agree, this is very unique compared to all his other toys. It comes with 15 props and 4 mini figures. Once you download the app, you build your scene, take the picture, reposition and repeat and play. My son has a blast! He did ask that we buy him more props, as he’d like to build more. Not a problem for us, we as parents love that he is using him imagination. We love how ecstatic he gets from seeing his creations. This is definitely a great toy to invest in. His 3 year old brother gets in on the fun as well. He may not be making a movie, but he loves helping his older brother build. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a little older kids. My son is 7 and wanted to do everything but actually make the videos with the kit. He enjoyed it for a very short amount of time. I think it may have been a little difficult for him to figure out so he lost interest quickly. I however had a little bit of fun with it. It is a great product, and can be a great product in many other themes and characters, but it needs to be either a little easier or set to be aimed at a higher age.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to use imagination I have to admit I was initially apprehensive but this ended up to be a great time with my girls and their friend. It is also a good way to occupy the kids on a rainy day. This was very easy to setup took less than 5 minutes and we were off making a movie. It took us about 10 minutes to make a 3 second film, which is the great thing about this toy. It keeps them occupied for an extended amount of time but they also have to use their imagination and thinking skills. We quickly learned how much time it takes to move the figures inch by inch to get the to do what we wanted. Then when I left them to their own devices they made an awesome second "movie" that took them about 45 minutes. That was 45 minutes of peace and quiet. They worked together which is rare with my two girls and loved what they created. We also figured out that the iPad is better for creating the fonts and music but can still be done on the phone. They actually used both. I told my neighbor and her son came over and they had a blast! This toy was better than I initially expected. The only thing we would change is to make the lava stickers removable so they can be placed in different spots other than that, LOVED IT! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good toy with some drawbacks My son is a huge Minecraft fan so we were excited to try this product. The quality of the toy seems pretty high, one of the small figures did have some small what look like scrapes on the face but that didn't effect use of the item. All the parts work together well, the figures stand up as they should without falling over. Overall the toy is good quality and sturdy. It's a small set so it's easy to store when not in use. My son preferred to just play with the set as it is rather than make a movie which is time consuming and can get tedious. They need to have a lot of patience if they want to make a movie of any length and my son got bored with that fairly quickly. Overall we enjoyed the toy though and would recommend it to any fellow Minecraft fans. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for beginner movie makers & Minecraft lovers Great activity to do with any Minecraft lover! Simple instructions and one simple download of a free app to your mobile phone or tablet and your ready to let your imagination loose and film a stop-motion movie. My son and I came up with a story and put it into motion. He loved that he imagination was coming to life into his own movie that he created. I have to say we had a lot of fun. The set itself is pretty simple to put together and you just need your favorite Minecraft characters and your imagination. The set comes with 4 characters but you have the option of purchasing more ...so the possibilities are endless. The app to create the movie is easy to use and could have a little more features but all in all my son loved how his movie came out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minecraft Slow Motion Movie Creator Okay, so I really do not know a lot about Minecraft besides my oldest, who is twelve, plays it. So, when we got this I was not sure what the outcome would be, because preteen and mood swings. He loves it. I mean LOVES it. He has spent so much time setting up the scenes and making his movies. I was really suprised about the quality of the whole thing. Between the app and the set and everything that goes into making these mini movies, you really get a lot out of this set. I love how it got him away from TV and games and actually made him think creatively. He was proud of his work as well which was pretty great to see. Of course the two smaller kids were very interested as well, especially my four year old who really wanted to be a part of the fun, too. I would recommend this to all of my friends that have boys 8+. Great product overall. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minecraft wins again! My 11 year old loves this Minecraft movie kit! He has had such a fun time setting up different scenes and making different movies. He loves adding the sound effects and music to his videos. Set up was easy and you can change backgrounds. I love that it comes with 4 little figures and some little props. He has had such a fun time playing with this and using his crazy imagination to make some amazing videos! This product is definitely a win in our house!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This looked more fun than it was We were so excited to get this because we have several mine craft users in our home. The idea for this was great but it doesn't work easily. We tried to use it with our Kindle and it would not let us access our camera. We tried it then with an ipod touch and it did finally work. My kids got bored waiting for us to figure out how to use it. It would be great if this was compatible with all devices. It was hard to use, not very user friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides creativity and imagination My kids love Minecraft, so when I was given the opportunity the test the toy I knew it was going to be a hit. My kids age 2, 6 and 9 have been playing it for ours and take turns making a movie. My husband helped them put it together. They love the idea that they could change the background so they can make different scenes for their movie. This toy allows the kids to use there creativity and imagination to bring it to life. Great toy for the Minecraft obsessed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son loves it! First, I absolutely love the idea of this product bringing out my sons' imagination. With that being said, he literally played with this toy everyday....for about a week. Now he sporadically plays with it. I received this toy for free for my honest review. I will say he still loves it, but he doesn't always have the tablet or my phone to record his movies. Which I believe played a part in him not playing with it as much anymore. He will be getting a tablet of his own soon, so hopefully that'll change. But the quality was awesome! The directions were VERY easy to understand as well. Just wish he would have played with it a little more. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome set for the minecraft fanatics! My son who is 8 is obsessed with minecraft and when we had the opportunity to test this new movie maker play set he was more than thrilled. The set itself is very well designed with plenty of choices to choose from to create the perfect background for our film. My son love setting the platform and rearranging the 4 figurines that was included in this set. I was not sure if my son being eight would know how to use the app that we downloaded to crate the actual movie but, he was able to navigate through it just fine. The app was easy to install and very simple to use. My son likes how he can add sound and text to his movie giving him a custom one of kind film. I thought this is a wonderful playset that the entire family can be involved with the making and creating process. My wife, son, and daughter and I like playing with this set on a daily basis and we enjoy adding our other minecraft figurines from the other season as well. I would defently recommended this to my family and friends who enjoy playing with Minecraft toys! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to use imagination! The Minecraft stop-motion movie creator kit is such a neat and fun toy for children to use their imagination. I think this toy is overall a great way for children to get their creative side going. A lot of kids these days use tablets, phones and game systems as their way of playing. With this Minecraft stop-motion movie creator kit, it helps get the children's imagination rolling while using the technology they love using. The only thing I wish they would have done differently with this kit is make the background cards and the environment pieces plastic. This way it has a longer lasting value. But, overall this kit is a great investment! It gets two thumbs up from this household! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a hit The Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator Kit is a big hit at my house with both my 10 year old daughter and 7 year old son. They have spent hours configuring set ups and using the 4 mini-figures to make short movie clips. The toy was ready to be played with right out of the box. The kids use a mini-ipad to take their videos--and they come out great. They change the backgrounds, move the props and create all sorts of scenarios with the characters. What a great toy to encourage creativity while still incorporating technology. Sometimes when the kids don't feel like making movies, they still use the toy just for pretend play with acting out scenes. We bought additional mini-figures to add to the set to further their creative role playing. It certainly isn't necessary to buy more pieces, but with the hours of enjoyment and creative play they have got from this toy, I didn't mind investing a little more. I would definitely recommend this toy for those kids who are interested in Minecraft. It's a fun and creative way to incorporate the characters into personal stories while learning a bit about animation. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did not hold interest My eight year old son received this product through the play, rate, review program. He was very excited when he initially opened the package and set everything up right away. The kit comes with everything you need to create stop motion movies, something that he had no experience with. My son created his first movie within 30 minutes and has made countless since then. The app that you download to go along with the kit is free and very easy to use. I love all of the creativity that this has inspired in my son, he spends so much time creating stories to share with his friends and younger brother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Time Fun My children really enjoyed creating scenes and making movies. The assembly was actually fun and challenging. It was at times difficult to place the weapons in the figurines hands, but that was the only issue. It was great that it came with different backgrounds which made it more fun to make different scenes. My kids enjoyed placing stickers on the blocks as well. This toy also establishes teamwork, which is good in any household. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product The Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator Kit is a good product with a few kinks that could be worked out. On the box it states that it is for children 8 years and up. After helping my 8 year old son I would have to say the age appropriateness is more like 10+. The set is very easy to assemble and the figures that come with the kit are of good quality. The app itself is a bit hard to figure out. As an adult I struggled so I couldn't imagine a 8+ year old child trying on their own. The videos were fun to make, but you definitely need patience. First of all there are not really any guides to walk you through what to do so you are on your own for figuring out the app. It took around 15 minutes to get a 5-10 second movie. In the app you can add text to your movie which is a great idea, but the words are small and hard to read. You can also use other figures in the scene. So if you have lots of mini-figures then you can expand on your movie making. Also the app does sometimes lose sound, and the frames per second is kind of fast. Overall though this product does a great job of keeping kids engaged and wanting to make more movies. I would recommend it to others. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innovative & fun I was given this product for free to offer my honest opinion from Mattel. First off I would have researched this product myself seeing as my kids love minecraft and stop motion, it screams gift worthy! My kids were thrilled from the moment I pulled it out of the box, they could not wait to open it. They had no prior knowledge that this kit existed, so big shouts of cheers rang thru the house. I have 4 kids from age 14 - 4 and they all loved playing with this. My older two, age 14 and 12 are very familiar with stop motion and developed some really awesome videos. With the helpful grid on the playset stage and the device stand their videos were near streamless. The older 2 kids would have liked to see possibly a fold out edge to shelter the eyes from the out side frame, as we were either to close or to far from the board set. They were pretty particular in getting the scene full frame. My 9 year old was happy with it and had no complaints about this product. He is more of a enthusiast of stop motion so he was happy with just being able to make his first movie. He even went thru the provided tutorial on the app. My four year old loved it also, even though I would not recommend this product for younger kids. She just used her imagination and wanted to be like her brothers and built with the blocks and moved the characters around. The accessories (sword, ax, and torch) are extremely small and easy to misplace. Over all Im thrilled with this and more importantly my kids love it . We have owned it for a week so far and my kids are still interested in the minecraft stop motion movie creator kit. They spent half of their weekend in the room making videos and sharing them with their friends. We played with the kit as a character set, as well as with stop motion, using a Ipad mini 2 w minecraft stop-motion app. It offers a good variety of figures, blocks and 2 double sided backgrounds. They will be seeking out more characters and especially would like to see more accessories. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy for your little future movie maker My son is 10 years old and he constantly is on his tablet making movies. He does a lot of stop motion animation and puts the pictures together to make the funniest movies you have ever seen. I received this toy as a free sample as part of the Mattel Play, Rate, and review program to try and get my honest feedback from it. The Minecraft Stop Motion Movie Creator was made for my son, or any other child that loves making little movies. When we opened the package, it contained four Minecraft figures, a stage, four backgrounds, and a tablet/phone holder so that his hands are free to create. There are several props also included with the package so the sky is the limit for him to make his videos. Often, he makes his own sound effects while he's making these movies. It's so neat that this toy is bringing out so much creativity in my child. He has played with it every day since receiving it. I wish there were other toys similar to this on the market because I would buy them all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My son originally wanted another product but after getting this and trying it out he wants nothing to do with the other. I planned on him getting it for xmas but it is so much fun that I dont think I will be able to. It has great graphics to go with the platform. He gives it a thumbs up and a smile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minecraft For the Win! The Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator is great for "techy", creative minded kids. This kit comes with: -4 Mini-Figures -Pickaxe, Torch and Sword Props and Prop Blocks -Camera Stand -4 Background Scenes -A Stage After downloading the App, my daughter was able to get started creating her movie. With the variety of props and backgrounds, my daughter really got into changing things around to create a unique story. My 5 year old son enjoyed moving the figures around and helping to stage each section. I liked that this is a great open-ended toy geared towards older kids. Once the camera stopped rolling, the kids were still able to use the props and figures to play with. My only complaint would be that my daughter doesn't have a camera/phone of her own, so she is forced to steal mine or my husbands device to create her stories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for mine craft lovers My son is usually just into watching people play mine raft on YouTube. So when we got this toy her was super excited that he would be able to make his own movies with it! I wish it would have come with some sort of carry case for the small items because he has already lost the super tiny weapons they came with. He can sit hours on end playing with this toy even without making movies. It is a very great quality product any mine crafter would love! His favorite feature when making movies is having his mine craft men jump! It really excited him and sparked a new interest in making videos. He has ADHD and usually don't play with a single you long but this grabs his attention and keeps it. I receive this product free for review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for imagination My 9 year old was so excited when this toy came. He recently discovered the world of Minecraft and is constantly on the lookout for new things to play with (and I'm always grateful for something that's not just another video game). He was able to read the instructions and do the initial set up by himself. The app was easy to download and he used our iPad mini to record his videos and it worked perfectly. Over the last few days he has spent hours changing scenery, moving characters, and making movies. The set comes with a few characters and even some tiny weapons. It also comes with background scenes to use in your movie. My son found himself wishing he had more options, but he ended up just making his own. Overall, my son was extremely happy with this toy. It took some time in the beginning to figure out how to make the figures move smoothly on comers. And it takes patience to make a video that's longer than 5 seconds, but my son has spent hours playing with this toy over the last few days and I think it has many more hours of use in its future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of Fun! I have three kids; 11, 9, and 6. They all three LOVE Minecraft. This was a fantastic way for them to all play together. It was an easy, quick setup and they had so much fun coming up with new ideas for their movies. They were even able to incorporate more of there other Minecraft toys with it. It was really great to see a toy that they could play with for hours, not just a few minutes and walk away from it. We have already had some of their friends over and they were in awe over it and asked their parents for one! Five stars, our family loves it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, tech savvy game! The Minecraft stop-motion movie creator is the perfect toy for your little tech savvy kiddies. This game is very cool in that it brings out the imagination in your children as well as letting them play and have fun at the same time. The movie creator comes with 4 different backgrounds that can be the set of your child's movie. There are multiple props and 4 mini figures who can be the "stars" of your child's movie. If you would like to give your son or daughter a toy that will spark the creative side in them, this is just the toy for you to give! This would make a great Christmas, birthday, or anytime gift. For the future movie director or just a child who has a huge imagination! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Favorite in Our House! My 10 year old daughter really enjoyed playing with the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator. She really loves anything that has to do with Minecraft, as do all of her friends her age, so she was really excited to try this out. She is constantly talking about how much she loves the Minecraft figures and jump tiles that were included, and her only recommendation for this product was that she wished that it came with more! She thought that the app which she downloaded on her iPhone was easy to use and she had a lot of fun creating her own movies. We have had it for about a week now, and she is still enjoying playing with this and creating new scenes and having fun by changing the sounds and lighting with the app. I don't see her getting bored with this toy any time soon and I think that it has a high play value as she usually gets bored quickly with other toy sets that we have purchased in the past. She loves the fact that she is in control of creating movies, and is very proud of what she is able to make using just this toy and her phone. It seems as if there are many options and things that she can change up so that she can play with this particular toy over and over again, which I appreciate. Overall I think that this toy is great for her age, and of high quality. It is definitely something that I would consider purchasing for any pre-teen child who is as obsessed with Minecraft as she is! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mind Craft Ever This toy was amazing. Something that was easy for my kids to set up by themselves as to where they didn't need me or dad to help them set up. Its quick to set up and easy to take down for them to put away once they are done playing with it. Its a good toy for both girls and boys. Its worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non Stop Creativity My 10 year old son has been creating different scenes non stop. It would be great if it came with a carry case for all the small parts, especially the super small torch, sword and pickaxe. You do have to be super careful not to move what electronic you are using to film with. Make sure you are on a very sturdy table, so nothing shakes. He has been wanting to do the movies less and just doing action plays with the characters. So he's still getting joy out of it, I just find that he doesn't have the attention span to keep making movies. I see the movies being more of a thing he does when he has friends over. I like that they have double sided backgrounds. You get 4 characters to start with. Plus blocks you can decorate with the included stickers. My son has other figures, not for this game, that he's been including. If you have a minecraft fanatic that can sit down and concentrate on one thing for an extended period of time, then they will love using this for it's intended purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a cool toy! My son loves minecraft and was so excited to try and create his own movie. The set comes with backgrounds and accessories to make a video. You need to download the app on an electronic device and then you are ready to go. The instructions give ideas of how to move the characters, even create characters jumping in the video. My son had so much fun that we went out the next day and bought another accessory set to add to the set. This is great for kids to play and use their imaginations. Very creative toy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best early birthday present my son has received My son loves anything that has to do with Minecraft. I gave him the Minecraft movie creator to him for his early birthday present. My son was ecstatic when he opened the present. My son made a couple mini clips and really enjoyed It. My son also plays with the set without using the app on my phone. Wherever he goes the mini figures go. He loves to play with them in the car. I would highly recommend this product to any parents who have children that love minecraft. Our next goal is to buy more mini figures to add to the set and use the app to make more movie clips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for bringing out the Imagination My boys love Minecraft so this Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie kit is perfect for them. I must say they really enjoyed it. It was very easy for them to read the instructions, to download the app and navigate through it. It came with different backdrops, 4 characters, lots of blocks and a stand for your phone/tablet. Plenty to mess around with. They must of spent hours setting up the different scenes, messing with the different sounds and acting as director and actors. The size of this set is small, but perfect for what it's meant for. As a parent I enjoyed seeing my boys use their creativity, imagination, and skills with this kit. If a toy can have my boys work together without fighting than it deserves 5 stars and that's what this Minecraft toy did. My youngest wants to add that "it's Cool" [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product ever My son absolutely loves minecraft , but this item/product was very different than what he has, in the form of being able to build and take pictures to play as a slid show on the app. My son has hours of fun playing with this since we received it , everyday after school. He loves the fact that he can make his own movie/actions the way he wants it, the way his mind creates it. It's very easy, mind creative, made to last and easy to put together. The back drops for it I was worried they would tear easily switching them out but hasn't yet. My son loves to switch out the back drops for different movies/pictures he take. I did how ever laminate the back drops myself to make sure they don't get any wear or tear from how much he switches the back ground out, so this way it will last for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of a kind toy! As soon as I gave this to my eleven year old, he went right to work. He was making movies in no time. He used his Kindle to download the app and create his movies. He had no assistance from me or anyone else and his final product was amazing. It was so much fun to see his creativity in motion. The toy itself is fantastic quality. All the little parts are detailed and look just like the game. I was amazed at what my son could create and I am so happy we received this toy to test, I would purchase it again and again! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Making Movies! I received the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator Kit and my daughter was so excited to play! She had a friend over the next day and they went about setting up the game. I downloaded the App on my iPad and we were ready to go. We went about moving pieces and taking pictures and videos. The girls were excited and had fun watching ther results. They enjoyed that aspect of the movie creator but thought that there would be a game involved also. Overall they had fun and spent about 30-40 minutes playing with the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator Kit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Imaginations!! I received this product for my son who is almost 9. From the moment he saw the box he was very excited. He was able to set everything up by himself with very little help. The instructions were easy to read and understand. When you download the ap there is a tutorial that you can watch and we highly recommend it. The only thing that I thought was missing was making sure that it is understood that you need A LOT of pictures t make a good movie. For my sons first movie he did 30 pics and the video was only 6 seconds long. In the 5 days that we have had this toy it has already been played with for many hours. My son also adds other minecraft figurines that he has and they all work great!! One thing that he has asked for is more clear blocks so more figurines could be jumping at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Autism approved My 7 year old son loves Minecraft. He also has Autism and does not speak. He really loves watching his brother and father play Minecraft but can not participate because he lacks the fine motor to work a game controller. I was so excited when I seen this toy because he can participate with with some physical prompts from me. He was very happy about it and handed me all the pieces to open one after another. I like the size of the pieces they fit in his hand easily. We had fun putting the stickers on. Right away he began to put the pieces on the stage and the little guys on the blocks. He plays with this for hours. He can't work the app for movie projection but with hand over hand assistance I helped him make a movie and he played it over and over! With lot's of hand over hand help he will be able to create his own clips soon. This is a great help to the special needs community. So sometimes a toy is intended for being used a certain way and when you have a kid with special needs you adapt that toy to fit your kid. This toy is totally adaptable to fit all abilities!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Me and my 10 year old daughter just received our MineCraft stop movie motion creator! First off the box it's self was very helpful and we loved that it shows the different sets of figures available. Also gave us helpful hints for setup and great illustrations. All the pieces are well made and love that it comes with changeable backgrounds! The figures are small but well made and detailed and even come with small accessories for Steve to hold. We also like that you get to put your own stickers on to personalize it even more! The directions were very easy to read and very helpful too! Me and my daughter had so much fun setting up the senses for our stop motion movie! This toy gets you so involved and useing your imagination and creativity! And when your all done you get to sit back and enjoy the show you've created!! For me and my daughter this is hands down a 5 star product! We can't wait to pick up more figures and keep the movie magic going! The app was a little tricky at first but once we figured it out it was easy and lots of fun! Its was awesome adding sounds, music and other effects then putting the movie all together..... And in the end it was a family event to watch the grand primer together! And as a parent i loved seeing how proud my daughter was of herself and what she had created! I'm sure there will many more movies to watch for years to come! Thanks for such a awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For minecraft lovers Get the kids off the video game systems and let them create a fun movie. If you are buying this to create movies keep in mind you will need to download the app to create movies.The app was easy to download and easy enough for my 10 year old to use on his own. If your child loves minecraft this will provide endless hours of fun! You can use it without the app and just pretend play which my kids also found fun. My 5 year old thought it was just as fun as my 10 year old. The 10 year old did wish it came with more scenes but I suggested he make his own which he thought would be fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use The product itself is of great quality. The tools are extremely small therefore very easy to misplace. They really don't make much of a difference in the movie making process though. I intended this for my 10 year old but he hasn't succeeded in making a movie as of yet. He comes back to it quite often. I'm just not sure it'll be one of those toys that he plays with all the time. It seems a little time consuming for that age. My 17 year old seems to be more interested in it.The app is fairly easy to use and making movies has been a simple task for him so far. They both play minecraft so they are intrigued with this idea.

They spent most of the day making movies. They have even had fun just playing with the toys. I love that it brings out his imagination, creativity and encourages patience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift For Minecraft Lovers My 9 year old son loves Minecraft. He talks about Minecraft all day long. The free app was easy to find and download. It is easy for him to use while making his little videos. He loves that he can play with the characters without making videos if that's what he wants to do. This is a great toy to get a child that not only loves Minecraft but loves using their imagination. It takes a lot of patience to make each video and this is perfect for my son. My husband and son have spent hours making videos and gives them the opportunity to work together. We love this product! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best toy for creative minds The minecraft stop-motion movie creator kit is an excellent toy for my 9 year old. Kids that are into minecraft will love this. It lets him use his imagination and create a story line/movie while he plays. It works well with the ipad mini and is real easy to setup once you download the free app. I like how he it gets kids involved with using electronics and creating something they can watch; definitely great if you have a kid that loves electronics. This is something he will enjoy for years. I plan on getting more figures to go with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minecraft Stop-Motion Creator = Creative Fun! I received the MInecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator Kit as part of Mattel's Play, Rate & Review Program. Both my son and daughter were very excited when we received this set. The minifigures that come with the set are really cute, and it appears that more are available for purchase to expand the set and creative play. We loaded the free app onto our Android tablet and had no problems getting it work. The app is very kid-friendly, and my kids had a lot of fun making their mini stop-motion movies! You can preview and edit the movies very easily, however it does take a while for the videos to render (save to the device) once your child has completed their movie. Both of my kids are already asking to buy more minifigures to expand the set, so this kit was definitely a hit for us! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours and hours of fun! This toy has kept my son very busy for hours. He absolutely loves it. It was very easy for him to download the app and figure out how to use it. The toy set is easy to assemble and is so much fun even if you don't download the movie app. But, I would highly recommend you do so. My 8 year old was able to take pictures and set up his movies all on his own. It is a total blast. We have a lot of fun with this and I can see many, many more movie creations in our future. Very durable, high quality product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome and fun! I received this from Mattel the other day and my step daughter had come to visit during this time. We were so excited to download the app on her iPad and get it all started.. It's so neat that these little pieces could be so much fun!! I think that this is a very creative, inventive and imaginative toy for small and young kids. My 2 year old daughter absolutely loved joining in on the fun and watching the animated movies! This was just an added bonus to the already obsessive minecraft household. I know this is something the whole family can have fun with! When my nephew comes to visit, he will enjoy it as well with everyone. I wish they had toys like this when I was a kid in the 80s/90s. So much fun and we are all about toys and games that spark creativity and give you a choice to play and imagine your hearts desire. Thank you!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

He was able to do it by himself which is always a plus since he likes being independent. He spent most of the day making movies but has even had fun just playing with the toys. I love that it brings out his imagination, creativity and encourages patience. He spends a lot of time decided what set background to use and how to set it up. My husband even got in on the fun and made his own movie. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest product we own I let my 13 and 9 year old set this up and download the app. Which was super easy for them. It was very easy to set up the toy part and the app. They made probably 15 videos in like 30 min. This product is probably the coolest thing we own. They are having so much fun with it and when there not making videos with it they have an awesome time playing with it. I would highly recommend this for any child over age 7 who loves mincraft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Big Hit in Our House My boys were so excited to get this Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator Kit. They couldn't wait to open it and see how it worked. We read the directions and assembled all the pieces. We had to install a free app on our phone in order to make the movies. There was a nice tutorial on the app that showed us how to get started. My 9yr son sat down and dived right into creating a movie with the mini figures. After seeing what the 9 year came up with, my 5 year old son had to try it also. They are so excited to set up the scenery and then see their own movie. It is the favorite toy of the moment in our house. My husband even had to see what he could create!

I especially love that tjis is understandable for so many different age ranges. I highly recommend this toy for so many children. It lets them bring their imaginations to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from kids loved it non stop play time The boys were blown away when it came out of the box. The didn't stop playing with it to bedtime. The wanted to make movie after movie. They loved how they could move the men and blocks around and record it and watch how it all played out. Great for kids 3 and up not to many little pieces which is great, you don't have to worry about losing them. Also a friend came over and he played with it he even stated he wanted it for Christmas. This toy is for any toy lover or someone who knows minecraft. The best part you have four exchangable backgrounds. Now that's awesome. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Innovative, Creative Product in a Long Time When we received the stop-motion movie creator kit, my 11 year old daughter was so excited. She has been playing with Minecraft things for a few years and has other Minecraft toys so this was right up her alley. Even upon initial removal from the shipping packaging, I was impressed with the quality and appeal that this product had. The outer packaging, especially the back, was very informative and really described the product in accurate detail. I wasn't sure what this product would entail, so I let my 11 year old daughter play with it for a while before I went to her room to help so that she could figure some of it out on her own. After just a few minutes of reading, she was able to completely independently unpackaged all of the contents, download the app on her iPad, and began making videos. She was able to make 2 videos within just a few hours and had a lot of fun doing it, she was really proud of her final product as was I, she was able to completely independently unpackage and make a video start to finish that was very creative. I am very impressed with the creativity that this product encourages. The only improvements that my daughter suggested were related to the four characters, that they could possibly be able to be moved and positioned a little bit more, otherwise she gave her overwhelming approval [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome idea, needs just a little more oomph. This is a really clever little setup! I have children ranging in age from five all the way up to ten who are Minecraft obsessed, and they're all enjoying this toy--and Mom is enjoying the creativity it encourages! The figures and props are just as well made as the Minecraft blindbag figures, the backdrops diverse. All of them had some difficulty figuring out the app and how to set up an animation, but after about an hour, they all had the hang of it with minimal tears, even the littlest. I will say expansion packs seem necessary, and I hope they're coming--the kids had to break into their blindbag figures to get the kind of set ups they were looking for with their animations, there just weren't enough props included in the original set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minecraft fun with out the t.v I was lucky enough to try this product for free and I have to say my son loved it. I thought the double sided backgrounds where great and the pieces were great replicas. I do wish there was more single blocks and that the box didn't say the app may end had I seen that in store I would not buy it hopefully they change their mind and come out with add on packs of characters, blocks, and gems. My son is 8 and picked up on how to use the app super fast. The app has tons of effects and sound choices that really makes the whole product. I also love that he can use the board as a display piece if not in use. Over all great product to get their minds going. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Movie Maker My kids just got into making movies themselves and taking pics so this was pretty awesome for them. I have one whos a Minecraft lover and has a few of their charters and toys. He enjoyed setting up the characters and different scenes he liked the sound effects. His exact words where mom this is so cool I can make different sounds with it. Its pretty easy to use and very fun for them once I downloaded the app and set them up they wanted to use it themselves. We made a few funny movies and we had a lot of fun. I like that it had a few characters so several kids can play and use it together. It has a good amount of parts to make different scenes. My son liked Steve and the spider charter sorry I'm not that familiar with their names. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Promotes creativity and imagination The toys is a great way for kids to explore stop animation. With the addition of other minis, this product has unlimited possibilities My kids loves the whole concept of Minecraft. The only drawback is that there needs to be more backgrounds, blocks or the ability to purchase more and more little items to hold in their hands like the torch and different pickaxe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing idea We have been collecting the silly little minecraft mini figures as fast as they come out but then they just sort of sit there after the first day or two. When I saw this set I thought How brilliant! My daughter loves the whole concept and I don't feel like all those little toys are a waste. The only drawback is that there needs to be WAY more blocks or the ability to purchase more blocks and more little items to hold in their hands like the torch and pickaxe. Really hoping someone realizes they could get more money out of me and they come out with some expansion sets for this.
