NEW YORK , Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ — For pint-sized photographers, point-and-shoot fun is just a shutter away with three new Crayola-branded camera products from Sakar International. New 5.1 and 2.1 MP digital cameras – each with its own new just-for-kids design plus entertaining Crayola Color Genie photo editing/activity software – are scheduled to ship in Q3, along with a new digital scrapbooking kit that pairs the 2.1 MP camera and software with accessories for dressing up printed photos.
Sakar's Crayola 5.1 MP Digital Camera (SRP $49.99 ) features a fresh, easy-to-hold form factor with large open handles on both sides, sturdy rubberized housing with splashes of color that seem to have jumped out of a crayon box, crisp 5.1 megapixel image capture, 1.5″ preview screen, built-in flash, and SD card slot for memory cards up to 2GB (not included). Young photogs also get a Crayola-exclusive software CD with a photo editing center, “write a story” template, finger puppet and jigsaw puzzle creators, games, and printable photo frames – all enabling children to create permutations of their pics for hours on end. Ages 3 and up. (#28071)
Sakar's Crayola 2.1 MP Changing Faceplates Camera (SRP $24.99 ) is a whimsical trapezoid-shaped point-and-shooter with three colorful faceplates that can be changed for variety and self-expression.

Sakar's Crayola Digital Scrapbooking Kit with Changing Faceplates (SRP $29.99 ) provides a complete package for creating, printing, decorating and showing off pics of the family dog or yesterday's play date.
