Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
The "Baby Camera" was manufactured by the
Japanese Company Kamera Kenkyujo in
1931.
It was called a "no darkroom" camera and
came in a set with the camera, film,
printing paper, developer and fixer, a
contact printing frame and the users
manual (one sheet of paper).
I have the camera, film and instruction
sheet for sale.

The 2 film sheets are held in paper holders.
The camera is made of embossed
paper over a wooden body.

It measures just 3 1/4 x 2 x 2 5/8 inches.
It's in awfully good condition for being such
an old and tiny camera.
The corners have wear marks and the
paper covering is torn in a couple of spots
on the back and underside of the body.
The "baby camera" nameplate is scratched,
but readable. The wooden body is
beautifully intact.
The rectangular film pack is in good condition
excepting a 1 inch diagonal tear on the right
front (or back-depending on your orientation : )
side, under the word "film".
The instruction sheet is folded and very fragile, as
the paper is quite thin. It's creased and shows
small tears, but the instructions are
clear and completely readable.

It's an adorable little collectible and an interesting
bit of photographic history.

be USED by any CHILD!!!!!!!!!*******
