In this paper we discuss the design of the Junior Director: This is a portable device that enables a child to record its environment along with animations that can be added and controlled in real-time. The device is suitable for children of different ages and for both independent and social play: Younger children are more likely to record interactions between animations and the environment, while older children can use their friends as actors in their movies. Important aspects relating to design for children, such as storytelling and imagination are discussed.Apart from the device itself we also describe parts of the evaluation.
