What our experts think
This talking play camera engages children’s observation and listening skills while encouraging them to explore wildlife and nature. The children found it easy to use and enjoyed answering the quiz questions and testing each other.
As children learn facts about wildlife, they develop their knowledge and are encouraged to use more scientific vocabulary. The camera also makes a great addition to imaginative role play, with children pretending they were on a jungle adventure, observing insects and bugs in the garden. Parents particularly liked the auto-switch off feature, meaning the camera switches itself off after a few minutes of not being used.
