Whast the easiet way to tell a flipbook animation to play/stop, rewind to start etc

I’m working with single animation instance flipbooks. Basically what i want to do is to set up two keys or buttons that control the flipbook states.

Button 1: “Arm” - this would rest all targeted flipbooks to frame 1 and stopped from playing.
Button 2: “Action” - this will tell all targeted flipbooks to play

Does any one have any ideas on how this can be done?

Anyone? Beuler?
