Things I Love Thursday- Disney Pix Jr. Digital Camera from Digital Blue (and a giveaway!!)

tilt Being the mom to 2 girls, our house is pretty Disney Princess-ified. To think there was a time when I was childless and I swore to my friends who were mothers of little girls that MY daughters would not be Disney Princess obsessed. It seems to be hard wired into them. I was powerless against the pull of Ariel and her equally disproportionately curvy friends.

So I jumped up and down when I was asked to review the Disney Pix Jr. digital camera by Digital Blue. The Disney Princess version. I knew my crowning as “Super Mom” would take place the minute that package arrived in the mail. My girls have the Fisher Price digital camera and love it, but there is only one of it and two of them and apparently taking pictures of the carpet and ceiling is just to appealing to share the thing. Plus it isn’t pink and princessy.

To say they love it would be an understatement. Because, get this, you can choose from a whole host of princess overlays so it looks like you are standing next to Cinderella (or insert favorite princess here) in your picture. Look, it’s Cinderella on the ceiling, Cinderella on the wall, Cinderella upside down on the fireplace. The possibilities are endless.

Here are some other facts you should know:

  • 1.3 Megapixels
  • Rubber grips make it easy to handle and hard to destroy
  • Holds up to 150 photos with 32 MB of storage
  • Requires AA batteries, but has a long battery life
  • Because of the memory it allows kids to snap pictures quickly with easily labeled buttons that don’t require reading.

I am also impressed that this camera has won the 2008 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold and Platinum Seal Awards and is a 2008 iParenting Media Award Winner. It also won a few other awards, but I seriously use the above two regularly to discover new toys cause I trust those awards. The consistently pick great, innovative toys and I have yet to be steered wrong.

Here is the great news. I have another camera to give away to a lucky reader. It is the Mickey Mouse version you see here. Isn’t that a great giveaway? I would love for you to win it and here is how:

  1. Leave a comment on this post. I would love something better than just “pick me”, like flattery, but any comment will do.
  2. Participate in Things I Love Thursday by linking up your own post. Please read the guidelines here. If you participate you need to leave a SECOND comment telling me you linked up. Yes, I know I can see that on Mr. Linky, but I draw winners from the comments so if you have earned a second entry you have to leave me a comment letting me know. Please follow the guidelines or your second entry will not count.

That’s all folks. The contest will be open until next Thursday March 5 (how the heck is it March already?) at which time I will use random.org to pick a winner. Good luck!!


  1. I don’t even know if I should enter this one. Big Brother already has a camera that we love. However, this would make a great gift so….. I love kids cameras.

  12. Janet F says:

    The Disney Princess version sounds like it is the perfect camera for a little girl or anyone who loves Cinderella!

    I would love to get one of these for my twin granddaughters when they get a little older.

    OH!! My 4 year old princess would love this!! Thank you for the review. Someday when one of your picture takers is a professional photographer, you can show them the ceiling pics!!!! LOL

  18. My son (21 mo.) recently broke my daughter’s (4) supposed indestructable fisher price camera. She is devastated. She’s my little budding artist- loves to take pictures, paint, draw, etc. and that is what she does all day long. So things have been sort of stressful around here without her camera. We really need this!!

    I love this givaway. I have 5 kids (12 to 4) who would use this like crazy… Im pretty sure they will fight over it …. constantly.

  27. Well, there are 5 boys in this household, and the eldest is the only one w/a camera. When the little ones watch M.M. Clubhouse, and he asks, “So do ya wanna come inside my clubhouse?” All 3 littles (ages 1,2,3) nod their heads with a great big smile. I definitely think they would LOVE it if big brother(5yo)took LOTS of pics of them w/Mickey!!! Thanks for this great offering.

  28. My kids would love something like that.

    Lizs last blog post..Changes

  29. I like your site – from another Michigander! One of my favorite things ofr my kids are the flat, foam dolls they play with in the tub. They come with clothing pieces, kind of like paper dolls, but for the tub. Both my girls like these. I know they’d love the camera too!

    Love your blog and my son would love a less pink version of this camera!! Thanks so much!

  31. I signed into the Linkey thing but have not seen it on my blog so don’t know if I did something wrong? I finally broke down & wrote a Things I Love Thursday post. How do I sign up to have items sent my way for review???
    Oh and by the way I have granddaughters who would love to put that camera to use.

    Annes last blog post..Things I Love Thursday

  32. Jill thank you for the chance to win a really cool camera. As I said in my previous comment I have grand daughters who would love to put that camera to use. The thing I think I would love best if I won is that I would not have to chose who to give it to. I would keep it for when they spend time with us and they could have a blast taking pictures & we could put them on the computer. (They all spend time with us regularly so it would be put to use often.)

    Annes last blog post..Things I Love Thursday

  33. I have a little girl who is in love with princesses too. We just had a princess birthday party and she would love this camera.

  34. My princess would greatly appreciate this! What a great giveaway! Sorry I don’t have anything fun to say – just thanks!

  35. i am but your humble reader…if you would pick me i would forever be in your debt.

  45. My son LOVES cameras. I’ve been wanting to get him his own but we just can’t right now. I know with our new little one coming, he will want to take lots of pictures, so having his own camera would be great. Thanks for the giveaway!

  46. Lindsey says:

    I would love to win that!

  47. We have been looking at kids cameras. We must have accidentally thrown our fisher price one away (while cleaning up after a bday party). ugh. And, we’re headed to Disney in June so it sure would be awesome if my girls had their own camera to take pictures while there. Thanks for the review.

  48. Oooh, my son would love this. And it just might save my camera as he likes to take it and run in circles snapping pictures. :)

  49. I bet you look like the prettiest, pretty princess when your daughters take your picture with the camera.

    [Um, how’s that for flattery?!]

She will even pose her stuffed animals and dolls, push the delay button and run to get in the picture with them. Would love for her to have her own camera instead of using mine all the time. Enjoy your princessy girl. Aren’t they so girly?!

We would love that camera, although I will need to buy one as well if we win so we won’t having any fighting about who gets to take another pic of the ceiling! Awesome giveaway mama..

  108. E would love this! She’d have so much fun. I never thought I’d have a princess crazed child…but she’s getting there quickly.

  109. My kids have our old broken digital camera, it powers on and records audio but won’t take pictures. Winning this would make their play time a bit less pathetic :)

  122. Heather says:

    This would be a great camera for my four year old cousin and when I am at my mamaws when she is there she’s always trying to take pictures with my camera or phone and I’m afraid she will break it. This would be wonderful for her.

  125. Wehaf says:

    The overlay feature sounds great; I would put Mickey everywhere. :)
