Animation software for kids!

hi friends!
I am looking for some animation software for my nephew who is only 11 years old. He is supposed to do some computer project either hardware or software. so i thought to learn him graphic animation (of course the most beginner one)

but i am unable to catch any software which is easy enough for small kids to work on. Can you help me figure out one such software?

How about Microsoft Paint lol? :lol:

Purchased Anime Studio Pro 6 for my 11 year old for Christmas and he really enjoys it. I think you can pick up a copy from TigerDirect for about $30us… Its a great program…

The Flip Boom program from Toon Boom ( teaches young users the basics of animation, including the principles of timing and motion. It works on both Windows and Mac OS X systems and costs less than $40. A free trial version is also available to download, and the company makes more sophisticated animation software for older users as well.
Anim8or, a free 3-D animation program for Windows, can be found at CrazyTalk, a $50 Windows program from Reallusion ( can create 3-D talking animations from digital photos.
