Fun with a Praxinoscope

No, I didn’t know what one was either (unless you did – did you?!). I thought this was a zoetrope, but no, it’s a Praxinoscope. It was dead easy to put together and looks brilliant.

It comes with a few pre-prepared animations and then some blank discs so you can draw your own. Harry wanted a Kirby one, inevitably.

It didn’t work brilliantly because the drawings were to different and so it just looked like he was leaping about, but H was still impressed. We’re got a few more, simpler, ideas to try.
