Toy cameras

-

Normal cameras made as toys are generally not collectabl­e. Cameras that are contained within a more convention­al toy or cartoon character are. The most obvious examples are Mickey Mouse-shaped cameras and, less common, Donald Duck. Others include Charlie the Tuna, Snoopy the Peanuts dog, various clowns, panda bears and even Father Christmas. Such cameras might be shunned by serious collectors, but they are still a lot of fun.
