Enable animated stories to be created simply and quickly
Item # Product Description Photo Price


Grades K-6
Anithings is a creativity tool that allows children to produce animated stories. Children can design and create their own characters and settings or use ready made ones from the bank. Animations are made by changing objects properties such as position, size and color, or by recording motion using the mouse.

Animated stories can be created to link with any topic from Vikings to pirates to fairy tales, or wherever your imagination takes you. The addition of speech bubbles to your characters enables a unique storytelling medium to enhance and build upon literacy skills. Add special effects to enhance your mini-masterpieces or use the storyboard to plan an epic movie.


Character creation - Objects can be combined to create Anithings characters. Drop shapes on top of each other to build up faces with eyes, mouths, etc. Snap objects together to make animated hinged limbs. The bank contains a selection of ready-to-use characters that you can add your own creations to by simply dragging and dropping.

Storyboarding - Use the storyboard mode to plan your animated story. Add and arrange scenes, then choose backgrounds and characters.

Recording Motion - Simply press the Record button and move your characters. The movement will be captured and added to your animation.

Tweening - Animations can also be created by setting an object's properties. Simply drag the timeline slider to the required time position and move the object to its new position. The object will now automatically be animated by moving to the new position when the play button is pressed. Other properties such as size, transparency, color and rotation can be added in the same way.

Speech Bubbles - Bring your Anithing characters to life by using speech bubbles to help tell your story.

Sharing Online - Share your children's creations by uploading them or embedding them in your school's Learning Platform, website or blog.
