Action packed accessories in a spiffy orange striped bag!
Z's Filming Accessories feature a colorful backpack, a 35mm camera with strap, a camcorder, a smartphone with three scene cards (double sided), and a tripod that works with all the devices.
I love the backpack! The straps close with velcro but the faux buckles are a terrific detail. The bag is roomy enough to hold all the accessories but the fit is a bit jumbled and snug.
The camcorder flips open to a "blank" screen. The screen cover also flips open to be able to place one of the included three double-sided images inside for a realistic touch. The right side of the camcorder has a generous built in loop that allows for a poppet to hold it easily in hand.
Above is the three cards with images, one of them placed in the camcorder viewer.
The 35mm camera looks great--black instead of teal or some other funky color, lending to its realism. The little plastic "C" shaped pieces on either side of the camera slip over the first finger of the doll hand for ease of holding.
Similar to the camcorder, the back side of the 35mm camera also has the ability to place one of the images in its view screen.
And a cute smart phone! I think it looks most like an iPhone without being an iPhone, lol, perhaps the older and smaller iPhone 5. But the phone shape is generic enough to be a pretend any-brand. (Personally, I think AG should up the size a bit to more resemble a 7 Plus!) An image can also be put behind the clear view screen.
Best of all the case construction of the phone allows for it to be held by the hand.
Lastly is the tripod which can hold the 35mm camera as well as the smartphone. The legs of the tripod are a bit wobbly and annoying to get to spread out evenly, but it can be done. It is hard to describe the type of wobble with the legs, but it is a type of extra looseness that gets exacerbated by some sort of elastic or magnetic joint construction that makes each leg want to independent of the others to slide back to center.
A lot of fun in this accessory pack! The pieces are all very interactive, and for that alone I think this set should earn an A. However, I can't say all the plastic pieces are perfect, in particular the mismatched top plastic seam on the camcorder and the weird wobbly legs of the tripod. Overall, A-.
