'Shapekit' is a new educational animation that helps children learn about colors and shapes by creating their own digital illustrations. Developed by the design team 'c+y,' the Shapekit app takes its inspiration from stop-motion animation and early twentieth century design to make learning about illustration a fun and interactive experience.

Aimed at children ages six to 12, the educational animation app is designed to target different stages of a child's development. For younger children, the app features a play mode that teaches children about the basics of colors and shapes. Once a child has a grasp on the basics, the app offers tools for merging shapes and adding other decorative touches.

Finally, the app has a more advanced feature that provides simple tools and directions for creating frame-by-frame animations. With its creative interface and straightforward instructions, Shapekit is the perfect app for any child interested in design and animation.
