It was similar to an Etch-a-Sketch, but you could animate the pictures you drew.

I had this toy! I absolutely loved it! It was the coolest, so much better than the etch a sketch. Challenging too!

I had this toy! It was awesome! It wasn't bogus--it worked the way they advertised it would.

it made these wild, chirpy sound effects when it cycled through the frames, too.

I loved this toy. Especially the noises it made when you animated your art.

I had this! I got it for Christmas in 1986. I spent hours with it, kinda frustrated me a little at first, but then I'd make simple animations of a dog and etc. It was fun.
