Want to get a bird's-eye view of your house? All you need are the Aerial Camera from Smithsonian Adventures and a good-sized kite or helium balloon. Just assemble the pieces, insert a disposable camera (one is included), and up you go. Experiment with different camera angles and different elevations. Then bring the camera back down, develop the film, and see a new perspective. --Rob Lightner
A nifty craft activity for older kids (10 and up) and adults to enjoy together, the aerial camera adds a new dimension to the age- old hobby of flying single-line kites. Send the unit aloft, trigger the shutter, then look forward to seeing your bird's eye views once the film is developed. A 1999 Parents' Choice® Silver Honor Winner.

Seriously, this is not an exaggeration. All it is is a thin piece of cardboard and a shinny sticker to stick to it.
They also forget to mention that not only do you need scissors, glue, and tape (an Exacto knife would be helpful with the cutting out of the holes), but you also need an extra reel of kite string - otherwise, you can't get the peg out of the box to let the camera take a picture.
All I can say is this was one of the most disappointing toys we've ever bought, and I really thought it would be so much fun and the instructions would be clear - it has the Smithsonian's name on it for goodness sakes!
