I received one Playskool Showcam for my kids to try and to see how they felt about the product. My kids have always tried to use my digital camera but because of how young they are they just aren't able to get the hang of it. Our first impression: After we got the package and take it out of the box, all three of my children are thrilled and bickering amongst each other on who gets to try it first, my 4 year old immediately goes to get 4 AA batteries so we can see how it works. The Pros:
It is very kid friendly for children of all ages. I have a 5, 4, and 2 year old and they are all able to edit the pictures with silly effects and project and take pictures. The button are big and they are very obviously marked to show what they do on the camera. It stores up to 1000 pictures! This is amazing for a children's toy! On day one my children had taken over 300 pictures of random things in our home so I am very glad it holds quite a few pictures. There are more than 50 special effects. And they are all silly and perfect for young children that love taking pictures of things to make silly. There are hates, animal ears, pirate stuff, ect. You can save, print, and email pictures to send to all the people you know! The projector is another one of my favorite features, every morning and evening my children have a slideshow and show me all the pictures they have taken together. The Cons:
It didn't come with the usb cable, but I have to say I will be purchasing it to send pictures to friends and family. The quality isn't as good as a standard digital camera. But I have to say it is a toy so it is kind of expected. Overall this is an amazing product and keeps all three of my children entertained for hours, it is amazing for days where the weather is bad and the children cannot go outside. Me and my husband just adore seeing them get so excited to show us all the pictures they have taken. Thanks so much and we will use it for years to come I am sure.
