Snap a pic and show it off instantly with the ShowCam kids' camera from Playskool. One flip of the switch instantly turns this easy-to-use digital camera into a real working projector. With over 50 ways to customize their pics and 3 ways to display them through the projector, kids will love to create their own show over and over again.

We designed the ShowCam 2-in-1 camera and projector with real kids in mind. The chunky size, soft grips and added hand strap make it so easy for little hands to hold and play. Big, colorful buttons let kids navigate the simple controls with little or no help. Plus, our built-in photo editing feature is literally child's play - no computer or extra software needed. They just press the Silly Button to choose from lots of fun stamps, frames, animations and sound effects, then snap a funny picture.

Now it's super easy for kids to star in their own show to share with friends and family. Take some pics in a well-lit area, then turn down the lights to get started. Stand about 2 feet from a wall or any other flat surface and your little photographer can choose from 3 different ways to make a show. One option is to set an automatic slideshow with fun sound effects. They can also choose from 5 slideshow themes, or scroll through each photo on their own. With so many ways to customize your show, smile, say "cheese", and get snappin'!

Great kids' electronic hardware helps make great fun. The ShowCam kids' camera can store approximately 1000 photos without a memory stick. Just like the built-in stamps and animations, you won't need any extra software to download and print your pics with your home computer - just your own USB cable (not included).

My 3.5 year old son was so excited to get his very own camera - "just like Mommies!". He is a budding photographer and even though at the young end of the suggested age range, quickly picked up on how to operate and use the Showcam. He gets such a kick out of the faces and effects. I really like the idea and ease of use, but feel the picture quality is really lacking. With today's technology, this camera should be able to produce at least an 800px wide image along with perform better indoors. Even in a room with 4 windows and sun shining in at every direction, 90% of the photos come out blurry or too dark to view. I realize this is just a "toy", but at the same time its very discouraging to the child user and they lose interest quickly when they are unable to to see anything but a dark blob for a person's face. Take the camera outside on a sunny day and it performs much better.

Color Name: Gray Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My son is a bit of a camera snob. He's 'broken' at least one of my older point and shoot cameras, so he's on lock-down with kid cameras for a while.

We previously used the VTech - Kidizoom Digital Camera, which is about comparable to the Playskool one in terms of functionality (though our Vtech has a flash and the Playskool does not), picture quality (both are pretty 'awful' even with bright daylight) and durability (though I think the Vtech edges this one out).

I think the controls on the Playskool are much easier for a preschooler to operate (my son is 3.5yo), and the shutter 'speed' is quicker with this camera.

But the best thing you get for the $10-15 extra bucks you'll pay for the Playschool camera is the projector capability. My son loves it. The image is presented on a weird grid-like backdrop, but it's clear that it's the picture he took. He likes that immediate large-scale gratification.

I'm not bothered by the lack of a USB cable since most of us have millions floating around.

Overall, cute, not disappointing, but not amazing either. I wish someone would make a kids camera that had slightly better picture quality. Kids do manage to take some interesting photos from time to time, but the resolution on these cameras leaves MUCH to be desired.

Color Name: Gray
My kids are constantly asking to use my digital camera and I constantly telling them to use their own. Now they do have a Fisher Price one but honestly the pictures are terrible and the screen to view them is so small. My kids used it for awhile and then gave up. I did think about getting them a real digital camera but I also wanted to rubber protection the kids ones have.

I absolutely love this digital camera for kids. As I said we used a different brand camera for awhile and it was awful, I can't remember but I don't think the screen light up as nice and colorful as this one does. Operating the camera is beyond easy, once you add the 4 AA batteries in it which are not included. Just hit the power button and take the pictures. Want to add silly effects? Just hit the smiley face button and then scroll through the list then take the picture. I love that there are only a few buttons the camera and they are big and kid-friendly. You can even turn the "lens" in front, but it does not actually zoom like regular DSLR cameras.

Once your child takes a picture they can then flip a switch and project it onto the wall. Now I did find this works best in a dark room or hallway which is what I did it in. The projected image looks pretty dang good! You can even push a button to have it do a slideshow of your photos with sounds included! This is seriously awesome and I can't wait for my kids to use over the holidays!

Now there are some grid marks both on the image on the camera and on the projected image which kinda bothered me at first, but once I uploaded the pictures they were gone and honestly the pictures are amazing! Yes these are un-edited pictures right off the Showcam camera. The best part though is there is no software to download!

We received this Playskool ShowCam through BzzAgent, and we were so excited to give it a try! I had bought another children's camera for my then 3 year old last Christmas, and returned it due to quality issues.

What we love about this camera:
It's a very sturdy camera; it's been dropped a few times, and nothing broke off, and it didn't seem to affect picture taking ability or quality. The big buttons are easy to push, switch, and understand (red with an X = delete). My son loves the silly sounds and animations; this is his favorite part! Also, the projector option is so much fun! When it's dark enough, my son loves to flip the switch to projector mode, and we have a picture party on the wall. The camera also holds A LOT of photos, which is great because my son loves to take pictures of everything and anything! I also just like that my son has his own camera now, so he feels included in capturing his own special moments in life, and I don't have to worry about him possibly dropping mine, or deleting photos I've taken.

What could use improvement:
The only way to get the pictures from the camera to computer is by USB cable, but it is not included in the box. I had to search all through the house to find one that was compatible to download them. Once connected, I found that the USB port is on the bottom of the camera, so it's awkward to set it down when trying to download the pictures. I kind of wish there was also an option to use an SD Card, which I find much easier to use. The viewing screen on the camera is somewhat small and the view is fuzzy. Not easy to see the subject of the picture. The quality of the pictures is so-so. If you are taking pictures with plenty of light, the quality is pretty good. If you are in low light, the quality suffers immensely. I realize this is a children's camera, and don't expect it to be perfect, but just thought it was important to point out.

Overall, a quality product that kids will LOVE!
