Lego & Steven Spielberg MovieMaker Set

The most important characteristic of the software is its ability to perform stop-motion animation. By taking a series of pictures, and moving the Lego models just a little between each one, kids can easily make their own animated films. It's easy to understand the technique, and Lego provides a well-illustrated instruction book.

The theme of the kit doesn't limit imaginative exploration. The components are compatible with hundreds of other Lego parts and, of course, the camera can be used to animate other objects as well. With some inspiration and a little patience, any bunch of toys or household objects has the potential to become a junior Kubrick's masterpiece.

The software incorporates three major functions - filming, editing and viewing. While it doesn't have the sophistication of "serious" video editors, it does allow stop- and full-motion video recording, sound recording, importing pictures and sounds from other sources, synchronisation of sound, and a range of basic scene transitions. There's plenty here to keep a creative child, or a young-at-heart adult, busy for many hours.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
