If you had the original Polaroid this one will be a tad disappointing for you, at least it was for me... It does what the original did but with much less quality. A good gift for a kid, although the printer paper is a tad pricey for the quality it produces and how quickly kids go through the "film". All in all its an okay purchase but I'm a little bias as I am an 80s kid that misses the good ole days with the original of things. Not the diluted knock offs we have today.
