Zoetrope Animation Toy - Large - Lunar Moon Design


Zoetrope Animation | Traditional Vintage Classic Victorian Toy

Lunar Moon Design

Modern Design Graphic! 

The Zoetrope is an animated vintage toy that was originally developed in 1830s.

The Zoetrope has recently been a major feature in the film, "The Woman In Black" starring Daniel Radcliffe. This is a modern replica of a traditional Zoetrope.

A Zoetrope is a device that produces the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static pictures. The zoetrope consists of a cylinder with slits cut vertically in the sides. On the inner surface of the cylinder is a band with images from a set of sequenced pictures. As the cylinder spins, the user looks through the slits at the pictures across. The scanning of the slits keeps the pictures from simply blurring together, and the user sees a rapid succession of images, producing the illusion of motion.

Just insert an animation strip, spin the drum and look through the slots. The pictures instantly spring to life!
Change the 19 included picture strips at will!
