Advantages: Lots to do
Disadvantages: Only holds attention of little one for short periods
We brought this for my daughter on her second birthday she loved trying to steal mummy's camera and I knew this would be perfect for her we paid about £5 for this from our local b&m store and they usually retail at around £10 - £15 which is rather good for an interactive toy like this.
What is it?
This is a lovely camera made of solid plastic that is bright colourful and stands out straight away to grab little ones attention. There are a few different features all which keep little one entertained.
On the front is a smiling face with numbers 1-10 surrounded around it there is a button to click just like a real camera and 4 different songs that play.
The camera is really light although a good size it is rather chunky and very easy for little one to hold all the features are spread across the camera making it easy for little one finds what each one does.
How to play?
There is lots to do on this camera all the baby can do by themselves the only thing I needed to do was turn the toy on but little ones soon pick this up themselves too.
The smiley face at the front is a ball that little one can push and it rolls around it is very easy to do as are most functions on this toy.
When you press the button on the top as you would to take a picture a little voice says smile and then 1 of 4 songs begin to play. The songs all sing about colours numbers and can become quite catchy I find myself walking around singing the songs. There is a volume control on the top of the camera but it is not over bearing so I do not need to use this most time unless we maybe take this toy with us in the changing bag to a restaurant.
There is a flash light on the side and this dance's to the music when it plays which my son found rather amusing although I thought this would bore him he seemed to enjoy it. On the other side of the camera are toggles for little one to play with and move around.
On the back of the camera where the screen usually is to view a picture baby has their very own picture to look at a small picture of a cute character puppy with lots of bright colours and small details.
It is a simple toy with lots of little things to do it helps catch little ones attention by bringing them something different to do on each place they lay their hands.
My children think this is a lovely toy lots to do and it is great to carry around as it is so small it can be easily transported out and about with us to keep little man entertained while mummy gets on with day to day things.
The toy is not one to keep a child entertained for long periods of time maybe 5 to 10 minutes at a time but they do seem to come back to it a lot and it has lasted extremely well over a year now and not a scratch. It is easy to clean as it just needs a wipe down which is essential with young children.
My only downside if anything with this toy is they could have included more camera noises clicks or something to make it a little more like mummy's. It dies say smile and then sings a song but my daughter always asks me why it does not click like my camera.
It is suitable from 12 months plus it recommends a highest age of 3 which I think is about right as my daughter loved it at first but it was more suited to my son who seemed to enjoy it more and he was only around 8 months when we got it. It requires 2 AA batteries which are included when you purchase this toy.
All round this is a fantastic toy that all 3 of my children like. My youngest son maybe uses it more than my two older children but I think that is because the concept is very simple yet lovely at the same time. I would recommend this toy as it gets a fair amount of use and although it does not do as many things as it could my children love it and that is what matters.
