Mini-Mizer and Weemees: Create characters

When I was looking for ways to create character graphics for inserting into Inspiration, Kidspiration or Smart Ideas, I was very aware of finding something to use that was 'free'. I used WeeWorld to create character Weemees, and took screen captures of them to place into the diagram I was creating.

I came across Mini-mizer from 'Reasonably Clever' which creates Lego style characters, but there was adult content, so I put a tweet out on Twitter and received a link to the 'Kid Friendly version of Mini-Mizer'. It has a lot less graphics but you can still create great characters or Avatars.
Again you will still need to take screen captures to copy these images.

R rating: R13

Used the Mini-mizer with my class last year, they absolutely loved it. Haven't used it with my current class but will be at some point.

It is really fun, great way to create a avatar, just make sure they use the 'kid friendly one'http://reasonablyclever.com/mini/kidsafe.htm
