Note: SKIT is providing the giveaway prize, which I will also receive. I was not compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions are honest and my own.

I adore toys and games that encourage creativity, so when I heard about SKIT! I knew we had to give it a try.

SKIT! is an app created by Storytime Studios. Their mission? “With SKIT! anyone can be creative…together!”

SKIT! is a mobile app for creating and sharing animated video messages with the community. You can create fun animated videos for free using your vibrant photos and decorating it with stickers, crazy outfits, filters and more. You get to animate your stories and memes, and you can share them with the online community.

I was already impressed by the concept of SKIT! and then I found out that they have just released Emmet, Batman, Wildstyle, Unikitty, and dozens of The LEGO Movie characters  as part of the app. You can also use CloudCookoo Land, Wild West, Bob’s Kabob Truck  and 20 plus other backgrounds: SKIT! is partnering with Warner Brothers to put LEGO Movie assets into the hands of fans to allow for story-telling, play and creative expression.
