If You Had Seen This Charming Paper Stop Motion Video You Might Not Have Failed High School Anatomy
Sometimes when I see a really fun-looking toy I wish I was a kid again so I could spend hours playing with it. A similar feeling came over me when I came across Tinybop‘s Human Body App. The app provides children aged four and older a way to explore human anatomy through a working model of the human body. In the app, every part of the body is animated and interactive: the heart beats, the lungs breath, and the stomach gurgles. The app even comes with a recording tool so your child can record questions for you and you can record answers later.
Artist Kelli Anderson created the 200-some illustrations that make up the app. To promote her work, Anderson created this charming stop motion demo video. She used paper cutouts to represent body parts – even the sounds in the video were created using paper! On her blog, Anderson documented her creation process; check out her behind-the-scenes photos below as well as her stop motion video.
The Human Body app is part of The Explorer’s Library, a new series of games that aim to help children develop a foundational understanding of the world through fun, interaction-driven play. The app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPad 2 and 3, iPhone 4, 4s, and 5, and the 5th generation iPod touch. Download Tinybop’s Human Body from the App Store.
