Lens Caps Off to Moshi Monsters Holga indeed!
I always like to see photography being introduced to kids through the media they watch on television or in the books they read. Why? Because I feel it helps to develop an interest or a small connection with photography at an early age.
I believe that photography has the ability to make people of all ages more perceptive to their surroundings and if you can get a child to develop this at an early age then it can only be a good thing right?
So I was very pleased when my 8 year old came running in about a month ago shouting “Mum I have a card with one of your cameras on”. The card he held in his hand was the Holga card from the Techies set, Holga belongs to the Happy Snappy species who likes to take photo’s and hand them out to other Moshlings. He has been collecting the very poplar Moshi Monsters game cards produced by Topps for quite some time and it seems many of his friends also collects them.
I have tried in the past to get him interested in photography but to no avail. Today is different and thanks to Topps he now owns his own camera, (film camera) and now understands the basics of photography with the zest to learn more. He has also asked for a digital camera for his next birthday, I won’t say if we will buy him one or not as he has access to the computer and this website.
So lens caps off to Topps for their Holga card, thank you!
