Avatar Legos figures are just some of the great figures from LEGO that children can have fun with and use to make stop animation films with the LEGO video camera.
You will find a huge number of different minifigures to choose from and many of these can be purchased individually as well as in larger Lego sets. Any child who has Directorial aspirations can easily put together their own mini studio and use their vivid imaginations to create a great little animated film with their favourite figures as the stars.
The principle of stop animation is to film the action, one frame at a time. My HubPages article about the Lego Video Camera has a video tutorial about how to animate a lego figure so that the finished film shows a running figure. It is very easy to do and is a great way for children to build hand-eye co-ordination. It is also extremely good for building concentration and attention span.
The LEGO brand was founded in 1932 and has been in the same Danish Family ever since. Whilst all LEGO toys are designed to be educational toys, they are fun to play with and are loved by children from three to ninety-three! However, it is true to say that some of the pieces are not safe for young children to play with. This is due to the fact that the little pieces might pose a choking hazard. Minifigures, like the Avatar Legos mentioned earlier are not recommended for children under eight years for this reason.
The LEGO video camera would probably not be suitable for very young children but Lego have also teamed with Digital Blue to create a Lego Camera which is a 3MP digital camera. This camera is a brilliant way to get children from the age of around four years interested in photography and makes a great first camera.
Lego products are a big hit with children, parents and grandparents and the Lego video camera is no exception. This makes them really good for helping adults to play with children and to co-operate on projects. The shared sense of achievement when a film project has been created or a Lego set built is great for everyone involved.
The focus of Lego on playful learning has resulted in the continued production of a wide range of Lego sets and Lego versions of popular items such as walkie-talkies and MP3 players. The result is that Lego are always producing something new that will challenge our children’s creativity and fire their imagination.
Avatar Legos figures could be teamed with a Lego video camera to provide a brilliant and very special present for any child. Hours of imaginative play and entertainment for all the family will be certain to follow.
