Your kids will love this hot new holiday toy from Playskool! It is a digital camera-and-projector-in-one called the ShowCam!
The new ShowCam is a 2 in 1 digital camera and projector designed especially for youngsters. The kids can create a silly show all on their own with the projector! They just push the Silly button to choose from a variety of silly stamps, instant stories and fun animations all with silly sound effects transforming photos into fun filled “SHOW-tos.” On the front of the camera there is a switch where the kids can change from camera to projector mode and INSTANTLY share their cool “SHOW-tos” for friends and family to admire. When the camera is in projection mode they can get an instant photo slide show by pressing the orange shutter button and use the Silly button for a surprise themed slide show. How fun!
The camera holds up to 1000 images, has a large color LCD screen on the back, and a USB port making it easy to save, print and email images (USB cable not included). This cool device has been modeled after grown-ups’ SLR cameras!
I was able to try the Playskool ShowCam out with my kids and all I had to do was put the batteries in it and set it on the counter and in no time they were both playing with it! Their favorite part of the camera is adding the silly faces to the pictures and playing the slideshow in a dark room. It’s so fun for them to see themselves and whatever other pictures they took up on the wall! I really like that feature of this camera. We have another camera really similar to this one, but it doesn’t have the projector option, and I think that is a really fun option to have!
The controls are large and easy for the kids to use. I have had to help them a few times, but kids are so smart these days with technology, usually they can figure it out just as easy as the adult!
There are two color options available, a grey, blue and green version or a white, pink and purple version. You can purchase the camera at most major toy retailers and online. It is best for ages 3 and up and the approximate retail value is $59.99. This would make a great Christmas Gift!
