This pocket-sized video camera goes where no other digicam dares and is more versatile and durable than a camera phone! Kids can clip the ATC GeckoHD wide-view camera anywhere, even on themselves, using the included wrist strap and capture everything - dancing at parties, exploring with friends, or screaming down a rollercoaster! Three changeable camera covers lets users mix-up the look and color to match their mood, and with the optional waterproof casing they can even capture video at the pool or beach!

SmartGlobe Infinity  
Expanding on Oregon Scientific's award-winning SmartGlobe line, the new SmartGlobe Infinity offers multiple themes, inspiring content, and includes a wireless talking Smart Pen. This high-tech educational toy teaches countries, capitals, population, history and so much more! And by simply replacing the globe with a SmartGlobe Theme Globe (sold separately), you can explore multiple fascinating themes such as Mysterious World or the Stars. Best of all, the Smart Pen can record notes with its built-in voice recording function. With information that's always up-to-date, the SmartGlobe series is the smarter way to play and learn! 

SmartGlobe Discovery  
The SmartGlobe Discovery provides amazing value in an economical package. With 19 exciting activities and games, this Globe provides hours of educational entertainment with amazing facts about planet Earth. Learn about the continents and compare countries to learn about their populations, areas, and more. Users can then test their knowledge with the Ultimate Challenge activity!
