D Behind the Lens

D has been obsessed with taking pictures and he likes to use my phone to do it. He has already broken the screen twice and I would end up with hundreds of pictures of his foot or a red blurry blob on my phone. And not to mention having to fight with him to get my phone back! Instead we decided he needed a camera.. and after much researching and review reading we went with the Playskool Showcam

It is toddler proof.. he has already dropped it a few times. It has big buttons for easy usage.. and comes with a view finder meaning he gets to shoot like mommy :) It has a few other gimmicks I don't care about like noises and you can put a pirate hat on your pictures and things like that.. but the best one is the camera becomes a projector. With the flip of a button D can view all the pictures he just took standing inside our dark pantry his choice of location not mine.


Here are some of D's pictures..  














The resolution, not so great.. but after the gazillions of reviews I read of dozens of kid friendly cameras none of them had great resolution.

The camera allows D to be creative, see the world through another perspective and we get a better look at how he sees things..

That's hilarious! All the faces are happy the same way, even the baby. How did D get such a great shot of his brother. Fantastic pictures. He's quite the photographer.

It's so wonderful that you are encouraging him creatively with such a great tool! The pictures he took are really great. And it's lovely that manufacturers make such kid-friendly items.

I think his talent already shows through the photos he's taken. I think it's great idea to give kids opportunity to do things as their parents do. They feel so grown up then. xx

How wonderful that you chose such a cool kid camera. I don't think any of them are very good with resolution, but it's good for the kids to be able to get creative and have fun. The projector feature is really nice.

That is so cool and has me thinking it may be a present for my soon to be 4 year old this year. I love D's perspective - you should start a series on your blog showcasing his pictures. Maybe even find some that are similar to your own.

Being Myself said...

He takes great pics! I'm wanting to get a camera for my grandson. I think I will check out this one. Thank you!

That is so cool! I love that it's unbreakable, and his pictures are awesome and hilarious! I am sure he will be happy to have them when he gets older:)

Corinne said...

I think that this is lovely and he has taken some very creative pictures! I'm sure when he gets a little older and can is able to take care of things a lil better he can get a camera with better resolution, but for now, this is great!
