Playskool ShowCam Digital Camera and Projector - White/Pink

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! Let the show and the laughs begin.

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 1 of 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).

The PlaySkool Showcam 2 in 1 digital camera and projector is my pick to be the most popular gift for Christmas 2013. It is part toy - but it is still a fully functioning camera and projector. While there are a couple of areas for improvement (a bit brighter projector and a higher resolution picture) it is still to be a huge hit with your kids.

Notes -

- Works as a camera - the image quality is similar to circa 2004 camera phones, but it is good enough. Files come in at about 100k, and the low light performance is somewhat lacking. However, your child will never know.

- The pictures can be transferred to your computer using a mini-USB cable - for some reason the cable is not included.

- A flip of the switch turns the camera into a LED projector. Very simple to use and navigate through your pictures - ideally, I would have preferred if the projector was about 25% brighter. Also, the focus of the pictures can be adjusted by turning the camera lens.

- Requires 4 AA batteries.

- In addition to the projector the camera also has a 2" by 2" LCD viewing screen.

- Includes special modes (as you can see in the video) that let's you take pictures as a soccer player, super hero, pirate, various animals and other funny scenes. Many of these special modes are automatically animated and generate sounds.

- Easy to operate - our four year daughter was able to take pictures within a couple minutes. Using the LCD view finder for framing her photos - most of her shots turned out much better than expected.

- Does not feature a flash.

Final Verdict - The PlaySkol Show Cam is probably the top toy that I reviewed in 2013. While I would have preferred if the pictures were a little bit higher resolution - it is still an awesome gift for young (under age 7) children. Buy it early because this is likely to be one of the toys for Christmas 2013. Recommended

I gave this to my 3.5 year old today and it was a hit. It was easy for her to use and she loves it. Do know that the picture quality is poor, but passable considering it is a camera FOR A TODDLER. It has lots of cool features. If you want image quality consider the v-tech kids camera. I really think she would have been less interested in that camera.
And of course she has dropped it at least twice with no discernible damage.

Rugged and easy to use, viewer is terrible, picture quality so-so. I wouldn't expect it to perform like my cannon, but I would at least expect parity with disposable digital cameras. Projection is ok but needs to be dark and close to the wall.

Great concept - durable and easy to use - but VERY POORLY executed. I figured this item cost enough ($50 - $80 depending on the retailer) so the image quality should be decent but no! My son kept asking me why his pictures are so "foggy" when he's trying really hard to keep still. How sad for him!!! I told him it's not him but the STUPID CAMERA.

Would be wonderful if the camera took decent (not asking for great - just decent) pictures. 4-5 Mega pixels would be just fine but from what I can tell it's like 1 Mega pixel. And the screen for viewing is also ATROCIOUS. Playskool must have a nice profit margin on these cameras since the parts used to make them are JUNK.

I sent this stupid camera back and got a basic adult camera. My son doesn't have as much fun but at least he's not feeling insecure about his budding photo-taking abilities.

My two- and three- year olds love this camera and taking pictures of everything they see. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with our screen, but there are two horizontal and two vertical dark line that cut through the screen, which makes things harder to see, but doesn't seem to bother my girls. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and haven't had to change batteries as often as other reviewers have... But I also avoided showing my girls the projector option and they haven't figured it out yet! When they fiddle with the switch, I just tell them to be sure not to touch it.
