This toy camera has a good weight to it, a handle, a button you can click, and the front lens area moves around to distort (kaleidoscopic) the images seen through it. I bought it for my 16 month old son to use when we are using the camera or binoculars. Of course, he prefers trying to figure the real objects out right now but he will walk around with it. Since it has moving parts, I am sure it will become part of his play once he starts imaginary-type play. I have not been let down by any of the Plan Toys I have bought thus far.
