Google Toontastic 3D Storytelling App For Kids Launches For Free On Android And iOS
Google just launched their brand new storytelling app designed for kids that enable them to make their own cartoons. Toontastic 3D allows kids and kids at heart to use a set of pre-generated characters. Why not make your own character though? The app allows you to do that with their editor and camera. You can even record sound and finally create a story that you save as a 3D video. With the app, you can basically capture proof of crazy kids' stories.
Google previously acquired the startup company Launchpad Toys some time in 2015. The company was responsible for Toontastic kiddie app that allows storytelling through animation for iOS devices. With this new edition, Toontastic revamped into 3D. The backgrounds and characters are now 3D objects but you can still move the characters onscreen in what is basically a 2D space like a digital puppet theater.
You can already download the app for free on Android and iOS app stores. The website promises that there are no annoying ads nor in-app purchases. Toontastic 3D works on your smartphone, tablets, and select Chromebooks. Another plus is that the app works without the need to connect online, unless you want to visit the idea lab which showcase works from other kids.
TechCrunch reveals that Launchpad co-founder Andy Russell said that their team wanted to "make a tool that feels a little bit more like a toy and how kids create by play than your average video editing tool."
The app demo shows that you can draw any character in a 2D, customize it with your own quirky drawing style, or add your face on characters, then have it rendered in 3D, ready for you to smack on scenes. The app is perfect for fun storytelling times with family but it's also great for school reports. Educators can even use the app to create engaging tutorials or lessons.
