Creative Possibilities Abound with the Playskool ShowCam Camera

Over the past seven weeks, The Kids have been playing with their Playskool Showcam Camera non-stop. Make that NON-STOP.

In October, it was all about the cameras projection capabilities. Last month, we showed you how everyone at Uncle Mike’s Sausage Fest 2013 got all silly and animated. And today, I’m here to share with you all that The Kids have learned. Okay, it’s a big ole brag post with a giveaway at the end!

Playskool ShowCam

At 3.5 years old, The Kids had the camera figured out from the very beginning. The interesting part was I never told them anything about the camera. Not even “clicking the big orange button took a picture” or “moving the lever activates the projector”. And, if that was all the camera did, it might not be brag worthy. However, it animates, and takes funny pictures on top of taking pictures and projecting them.

There are so many Creative Possibilities!

Artemis has turned into the official family photographer. It’s been really interesting to see the change in subjects that she chooses. I love this one that she took of Max and I and the one where she asked me to hold up the cat. The quality of her pictures has improved with her being able to hold the camera more steady and line up the silly pictures with the subject. Neither is an easy feat; even for an adult.

Quite an improvement from the 532 pictures of our carpet (I’m not exaggerating by one picture).

Max has turned into quite the videographer and cinematographer. There are movies playing all over the house and on every surface (including the cat!). His favourite subject matter? Himself of course!


And he can be picky because there are tons of animations to choose from.
I swear I hum this song in my sleep.

If you’re looking for just the right present to put under the Christmas tree this year, this camera is it. While it’s recommended for ages 3-7, that is only a recommendation as our neighbours child is 12 and she’ll be receiving one!

    I had some of these toys when I was a kid – and I couldn’t wait to share them with my children. Playskool has been a huge part of our lives… from toddler toys to transformers, Mr & Mrs. Potato Head and Elmo – I love them all

    My daughter loves her Hungry Hungry Hippo game that she picked out and had to have. This Christmas I would love to put the Playskool Showcam Camera under the tree for her. She loves capturing moments using Mommies cell camera and needs a camera of her very own. I love the creativity this product encourages! Merry Christmas!

    My twins would love this. We have a little camera they use and build stories on the computer with but it’s not quite as nice.
