What can you do with this kit?
Build yourself a 3D animation cylinder (model number 38828N) and see the figure start to move. With 22 parts the fun starts with assembling the kit. A motor is included to spin the cylinder at the right speed all you need to do is flick the switch. You can even create your own moving image, just remove the existing figures then draw a series of nine images on paper that can be slipped over the white panels at the bottom of the cylinder and watch it come to life.

What does this teach?
Explore the origins of moving pictures with this spinning 3D animation kit. This type of spinning animation cylinder is called a zoetrope - the slits on the side allow your eye to see the images without them blurring together and let a static 3D figure look like it’s moving. The reason your eye is fooled is due to the visual perception of motion so a series of still images moving fast enough look like one image moving.

Mix and match with Connex
Be creative with your kit by mixing components with other Connex kits (take care to match power requirements). No soldering is required with this kit, all the components can be connected using the supplied wires fitting into the springs on the board. No need to worry about losing pieces, the kit comes in a box that doubles as a base to assemble the kit on and a storage box when you tidy it away. This kit requires one AA battery (sold separately Order Code <L43AL>).

This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance and is suitable for children aged 8+.
