Introduce young minds to the art of making movies!

Long before film cameras and digital film making were invented, movies were made using moving slides. One of the first movie-making machines, the Retroscope, uses “persistence of vision” to create an illusion of moving images. This exciting do-it-yourself kit introduces the fundamentals of storytelling and movie-making by encouraging kids to build a fully-functional, gear-driven, movie-making machine from scratch.

The kit includes two sets of pre-made cartoon slide panels. There is also a set of blank slides so kids can design their own animated flick!

The laser-cut wooden pieces are also a blank canvas. Use your own paints or markers to decorate it any way you want!
