Parents who have an old smartphone around the house or who are about to upgrade to a new device can make use of it with the 'Pixlplay' in order to create a kids camera out of the device.

Smartphones of all kinds have revolutionized the way we take and view photography, so the 'Pixlplay' aims to upcycle technology into something that young kids can make use of rather than letting it sit dormant until it's recycled or thrown out.

The 'Pixlplay' is the design work of Pixl Toys and is compatible with iPhones ranging from the 4, to the 7 as well as a number of Android smartphones. The 'Pixlplay' kids camera device works by connecting to the smartphone via the headphone jack (or jack adapter in the case of the iPhone 7) and allowing users to snap away.
