I know I do one of these ‘ best things ever’ posts quite often. But when I make them I’m usually genuinely excited. And this is no exception. Fuzzwich.com have created a really simple tool for creating and sharing animations.
You don’t need to know anything to get going, it takes the most basic functions of something like flash and repackages them in a way that you can start using straightaway without any instructions. Here’s something I made in a few minutes with absolutely no reading of any instructions or anything (and believe me I’ve got practically zero skills in animation principles or tools) – it was really fast and satisfying to do, even if the results are a bit pony:

It’s only been out for a couple of weeks and it looks like they’ve got plans to do some stuff to it – but part of it’s charm is its roughness and simplicity so I hope they don’t over complicate it in any way.
I love Fuzzwich!
