Clay Animals

Hey Clay Animals
Reviewed on 7/27/18

Have you ever wondered how those cute claymation-style animals are made? This app walks users, step-by-step through the process of making one animal for free and you can unlock the other 5 tutorials with a single in-app purchase.  Instructions are given in both spoken word and animations of hands. After each step, users must press the arrow to proceed further through the tutorial which means that you’ll never fall three steps behind. You can also press a back arrow to go back a step if you want to see it demonstrated again.  The app was created by a Russian company, so occasionally the words they’ve chosen might seem a bit unusual (e.g. the pig has a “muzzle” instead of a “snout”), but still acceptable. If you’re really into this concept, you can also purchase packages of clay designed especially for this app in the colors they recommend.  There are also partner apps for Clay Monsters, Clay Aliens, and Clay Birds.
