Whimsically fun and functional

I absolutely loved putting this beautiful camera together (enough to write a review) and using it is truly a fun experience. The build is great, instructions are clear, and it's just complex enough to feel like you built something but easy enough to not ever get frustrated. Super fun, will be using it on my for sure! I got a timelapse of the build here:

So much fun to build!

I built this kit with for 7 evenings with my 6 year old, each session was 10-15 minutes. So much fun!

That's great! Our goal was to create a product that would be a cool activity to do with kids away from the screens.

A great entertainment and amusement!

I purchased a Joylook from Germany and sent it to Japan as a souvenir. It was delivered to the address within 1 week after order. I built it up with my siblings and took many pictures while we had a family meeting. We were all curious about the mechanism of the nostalgic camera and amused it. Thanks!

Such an amazing story! We are so glad you enjoyed the assembly and the process of taking photos with your family!
