Little Shutterbug

Annie Lebowitz. Ansel Adams. Your little one. The journey to becoming the next acclaimed photographer, or just to more creative play, begins with this clever device. Blending modern technology and an old-school shutter, the design features a place to slide your old Apple or Android phone in the back. Once your mini paparazzo starts snapping, they can use the Pixlplay app to add silly filters like bunny ears on Dad and a bowtie on Boots the cat. Designed by JP Stoops in San Francisco, California. Made in China.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

Big toy companies have nothing on designer JP Stoops. He left his gig at a toy chain so he could run free with his creative ideas like the Pixlplay camera. The clever design solves two common household problems: Old cell phones that lie around, unsued, and parents' concerns about too much screentime. JP has always been passionate about finding the points where technology and toys overlap, and he is constantly inventing new toys and tech savvy ideas at his company in San Francisco.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Pixlplay Smartphone Camera:

      We love to watch this toy in use. Our granddaughter has a ball trying to get the dogs to pose. She runs around everywhere saying cheese. I wish the button on top took the picture instead of zooming.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Timeliness for delivery was right on. The box came mangled but the camera was fine.

        For our little guy, its near perfect. As a parent we have to unlock he smart phone through the plastic screen, which can be a challenge, but it opens and closes easily to access the touch screen. The phone has an exterior button that allows the kids to not have to use the touchscreen! The interface is pretty cool!!
