Animated Product Videos
An animated product video can be the perfect way to show potential customers how a product works and the benefits of using it. Unlike live action explainer videos, animation gives you the freedom to break out of the real-world and simplify complex ideas or processes using whatever environments, characters, and graphics you dream up.
Looking for a little inspiration? Here are 8 of the best animated product videos, which all do a great job introducing a product to the world.
1. FridaBaby Animated Product Video Series

Because after all, what’s more appealing than a device that lets you suck snot out of your baby’s nose?
2. Wallprotex Animated Video
