The GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine toy works alongside an app that teaches kids how to make their own movies in two ways. While the toy presents the more oldschool way of making movies with a pre-cinema zoetrope, the app presents a more modern approach.

The kit for kids is excellent at helping to foster the development of spatial skills, creativity, inventiveness, as well as basic engineering principles, as the toys by GoldiBlox are so well known for. Rather than working as a standalone kit, one of the neatest things about GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine is that the building components that make up the toy are compatible with other GoldiBlox toys, meaning that once kids have mastered this machine, they can go on to creating even bigger and better things.
