For Moms: “Look At Mommy” Phone Attachment

What it is: If you’re like most people, your phone is your camera. “Look At Mommy” helps you start taking better pictures of your kids!  You can attach it anywhere on your iPhone or Android as long as it avoids the camera lens and the product will work its magic. This $28 funny fuzzy face attachment also comes with 3 lighting modes to draw attention to the lens and project soft lighting for a professional looking photo.
Why we love it:  Like us, we are confident that almost every parent would agree that it is nearly impossible to get all the kids to look at the camera at the same time for that picture perfect moment. Now instead of offering ice cream for a winner smile or having to give your kids “the look” – the universal one all moms do when they want to scream at their kids but instead just beg them to look at the camera – you can use the “Look at Mommy” phone attachment, and voila all kids are laughing and looking straight at the camera. It is your very own mommy magic.  Who would have thought all it would take was a funny looking face to actually capture the attention of your little ones (tested on kids up to age 5)?

For Munchkins: Fujifilm Instax Mini Camera

What it is: The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is a polaroid camera perfect for elementary school kids that brings instant fun and excitement everyday. It is cute, compact and comes in 5 different vibrant fun colors. It is very simple to use. All you do is turn the power button on, adjust the dial to the lit position which tells you the best lighting for the image you’re shooting and then you take a picture, and you get it instantly.
Why we love it: This mini polaroid camera makes kids forget (even if momentarily!) about your iPhone and want to spend hours taking great photos of absolutely everything!! It is easy to use and provides hours of entertainment and lasting memories. A great holiday or birthday gift to keep in mind!
*If you have a younger child who loves taking pictures consider The Kidizoom Camera Connect from VTech.  With this real 1.3 megapixel camera your child can capture great digital photos and movies. Your child will become an instant photographer and movie director at the press of a button. They can edit photos with wacky effects, shoot video with fun animated borders, use the voice recorder with five voice changing effects and even play three cool games all right on the camera! This safe and durable camera features a 1.8″ color screen with an easy-to-use viewfinder and it comes with 128MB internal storage so it can hold approximately 800 photos. This camera has our vote for the little ones because it provides endless creative fun! M&M tip: this is a great gift for parents to give to their child when they become an older sister/brother so they can feel like they are a part of all the excitement and taking  lots of pictures of the new addition like his/her parents.
