Merry Christmas - a short video from my daughter

Awesome video, which I'll show to my eleven year old very appreciative audience when he gets out of the shower. He's going to be taking a Lego stop-motion animation class at the Charles Shultz museum, starting next month. What kind of camera did you use to make this?

Thanks. Peter, we just used her cheap Nikon Coolpix Digital camera on a tripod. Then used iMovie to throw the 35 pictures together with a very short display time, like .6 seconds. It is a very rudimentary method, but works. I am getting a new toy for Christmas though, a USB stop motion camera and software (Claymation Studio 3.0 Deluxe), found it for $25.
