Sakar’s Crayola Digital Camcorder Honored With iParenting Media Award
EDISON, N.J., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Sakar International, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of technology, toy, and consumer electronic products, today announced that its Crayola Digital Camera has been honored by Disney's iParenting.com with an iParenting Media Award for '2008 Outstanding Products' in the toy category. Reviewers praised the Crayola Digital Camera because it encourages creativity, withstands drops and bumps, is lightweight, and inspires children to play interactively with each other.
Sakar's Crayola Digital Camera comes in purple or green and includes a 1.5" color preview screen, durable rubberized parts, proprietary software for creating movies and special effects, a built-in microphone and connectors to watch directly on TV or PC."The camera was so much fun for the kids," commented one iParenting Media Awards' Reviewer. "They loved taking pictures of each other and then we hooked it up to the TV so they can see themselves perform. The functions were easy to figure out. The camera is very light and was dragged all over the place and probably dropped a few too many times, but it still works great!"
Other reviewers mentioned that the Crayola Digital Camera was "easy to use" and helped teach their children how to handle sensitive electronic equipment without damaging an expensive camcorder. The rubberized parts of the camera provide for the durability that some reviewers found most convenient.
