In colors from Flamingo Pink to Smokey White, the fun design and added features like a close-up lens adapter and automatic exposure help to ensure you get the perfect picture every time.

Just remember to not shake it like a polaroid picture. Contrary to what Outkast may have advised, shaking it can destroy the chemicals that form the picture. Therefore, remind your mom to simply let it dry, laying face-down and out of the sun for best results.
