My husband and I were torn on whether or not such a camera(one that prints like the old school Polaroid camera’s) was a good idea or not.
We though that in theory, she would love taking pictures and then in turn writing about the pictures. That was all in theory. Just like how thousands of parents paid hundreds of dollars for hot selling expensive toys only for them to not even be taken out of their boxes.
Recently our daughter turned 6 and we gave her the Instax mini 8 camera. We could not be more thrilled with the passion for writing and creativity that it has inspired.

She is taking her own pictures and captioning them.
These books she is making will be cherished memories when she is older!
Is there a chance that she will blow through the packages of film…yes…however, the fact that the instant gratification is there…something tangible…is just amazing to her. Hello stocking stuffers and other random holidays that people love to give each other’s gift for! No more random pieces of stuff that I will dread finding a home for. Instead of buying $10 worth of that stuff, we’ll buy her film<3!
We thought outside the box for her birthday and I feel it paid off!
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3
