Question Need Input: Disney Pix Jr. Digital Camera for kids

Does anyone own one of the Disney Pix Jr Character digital cameras for kids? We're thinking of getting one for DD for Christmas so she'll stop wanting to use our good cameras, but have some questions that I can't find the answers to anywhere online.

Each camera states they include Disney overlays to add characters to your photos, but none state which characters are included. Since there are different characters on the cameras, including Mickey, Toy Story, Princess, Pooh and Tigger, Cars, etc, I am wondering if the character overlays are specific to the character on the camera? For instance, does the Princess camera only have Princess overlays or do all cameras include all characters?

Thanks for any help you may offer!

walgreens had these on clearance for between $5-$10 check there first the camera is not worth anything over that but the software is cute.

Thanks, I have seen those but they are the Pix Click, not the Pix Jr. The Pix Jr seems to be a much better camera and includes a SD card slot to expand the memory.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I know you aren't asking about this particular model but I just wanted to tell you that my ds's pix max he can put different characters on the pics, not just POTC ones. In fact, I'm not even sure there are POTC images on it. I would think that all the Disney cameras were the same way.

Thanks for the info. Will definitely look into it for my sister 5. She's always taking pictures.

Thanks! None of the reviews that we can find for any kid's cameras are that great, but we realize this is just a toy. We like the option of adding a SD card so we won't need to continually download the pix from the camera to make room. Also, it looks pretty easy to use for little hands.

Since we haven't found any kid's camera with great reviews, we figured we'll just go with Disney as adding character will be like having a photopass.

Thanks again for all the help!

Hi I bought the pix mix camera for toddlers that has the rubber protection on the outside and poohbear and darby on the outside. The overlays that are available on that camera are mickey, pluto, pooh, tigger, rocket, annie and june, micheal, leo adn maybe one or two others. With this camera if you are going to use the overlay they need to push the magic button to make it come up on the screen then take the picture then if they want to take another pic with the overlay they have to start all over again. There is an SD slot and it uses 4 AA batteries. The other thing that is annoying is that use have to use a screwdrver to get to the SD slot and the batteries. I know this is for safety and I appreciate it but you always have to carry a screwdriver with you because batteries like AA in a camera do not last very long.

Hope this helps

That is a huge help! Thanks so much!

I'm not really finding any sales on the camera right now, but it looks like fun for DD and will keep her from wanting ours. ;-)

Keep an eye on Amazon.com, they should start their Christmas sales soon. I order lots of things from them every year.

Thanks to all! So far, best prices I'm finding are on auction sites but I hadn't checked Black Friday yet.
