PixlPlay Smartphone Camera

If you’ve got a couple of extra Smartphones stashed away, you’re not alone. Put that “old” technology to work by turning your phone into an easy-to-use camera. The exterior case has the look and feel of a 35mm, but it’s totally functional with a splash-resistant screen, working shutter button, a focus lens with a “clicking” sound for play, and there’s even an iOS app. Kids can go on scavenger hunts, learn about photography, give their friends funny upgrades with digital accessories and more.

Available at, $29.95.
