I remember using an instant camera when I was a kid. It was all the rage to see a photo developing right before your eyes. I love that technology has been updated for the current digital age and that kids everywhere are still enjoying instant pictures.
Our new Canon IVY Cliq+ was perfect to take with us on our vacation, the kids got a kick out of making instant 2×3″ peel-and-stick photos using the camera. I love that the printer is built into the camera, making it very travel-friendly. I also love that there is an option with this camera to add a MicroSD card so that you can save the pictures digitally as well as printing them out, this is such a great feature of the camera and makes it stand out from the others that we have tried.
The Canon IVY Cliq+ also features an app that you can download onto your phone where you can add fun filters and text to your pictures before you print it out. If you have taken a pic with your phone that you want to be printed onto the sticker paper, you can print it from your app as well! I love how interactive Canon has made these new products.
Both my kids love using the camera. It is easy for them to navigate and use on their own and I love that they can be independent when using it, they just grab it and go.
