Granddaughter loves it
07/08/2018 by Brent
She only 2 1/2 but loves to act like she taking pictures with her mom's camera. She loves this and she learned how to use it already.
Major let down
12/28/2017 by Audrey
None of the phones we had fit inside making it useless. I was so embarrassed that the child I bought it for was unable to play with her Christmas present from me.
Things to consider
12/02/2017 by claire
Our 3-yr old grandson was disturbed when he saw his phone being enclosed into this camera case, and then pitched an absolute fit that his phone was gone! We are giving the product a 5 star rating despite the unhappy maiden voyage... because it's well designed and attractive, and a great idea. We recommend if you're giving it to any child under 5 that you have it completely set up and ready to go when you gift it so as to avoid drama.

Smartphone Enabled Kids' Camera

Budding photographers can get snap-happy with this smartphone case that turns the phone into a camera just for kids. The classic point-and-shoot design protects the phone while letting kids access its camera function. Plug the phone into the case and connect to the app, and let the little photogs take it from there—they can even edit shots and explore photography-themed play, too.


Pixlplay is a smart smartphone case—it turns an old or unused phone into a camera for just for kids.

This connected case looks like a traditional point and shoot camera. Once the phone is inside, pair it with the companion app so little photographers can shoot, edit their own pictures, and even go on photo adventures.

Pixlplay is easier for kids to handle than a phone, and the app’s large buttons and clean interface make it simple to navigate. It has a child-resistant latch to thwart little hands from opening the case. And because it’s scratch- and drop-proof, there’s no need for any please-don’t-drop-it hovering.

Kids will be delighted to be on the other side of the camera, and thoroughly engaged with the world of photography opened up to them. more Their Story
