Your resident little James or Jane Bond may have a keen interest in spy gadgets of all kinds, but many of these covert gadgets are either cheap, fake kids’ toys that don’t work at all, or they’re real, actual gadgets that cost WAY more than you want to spend on a toy for your child. Playmobil, however, has made a big push recently to expand their reputation beyond sturdy plastic toddler toys and have been developing more sophisticated toys for older kids. And one of their more innovative toys is a spy camera that will not only allow your special secret agent to spy to her heart’s content, but will also allow her to get a very cool view of the world.
The Playmobil Spy Camera is part cool toy, part modern tech wonder. This affordable and sturdy system comes with a small camera that has a USB port and a color monitor. Your child can place the camera wherever they want to spy (so be careful!) and then they can watch their spy subjects remotely on the monitor. But the coolest part of this hookup for kids is that the camera is built to fit into some Playmobil vehicles. There’s a spot on the Playmobil Robo Gang Truck for the Spy Camera Set to be attached to it so your child can drive the truck all around the house or neighborhood with the camera recording the truck’s view of the world. Your child can then watch that view on the monitor for hours of entertainment. There’s also word that the camera will soon be able to attach to the Playmobil pirate ship so your child can view the world on the high seas (or a small lake) as well.
