Mini Camera Keychain | found on Amazon.com
What’s in Sienna’s bag? Her camera!
If Sienna had her own American Girl magazine description, it might say something like this:
I’m Sienna Copeland.
My family calls me the “resident shutterbug,” because I always seem to have a camera in my hands. I love taking pictures of everything – tasty-looking food, silly pets, perfectly-formed flowers, and of course, my family and friends!
Someday, I want to be as good at photography as my mom. She used to take pictures for a local magazine, but when it closed down two years ago, she had a hard time finding a new job and got really depressed. I tried to cheer her up by asking her to teach me more about cameras, and we ended up spending a lot of time taking pictures together. When she realized how much more she enjoyed teaching me how to use a camera than seeing her work published, she decided to become a photography teacher.
Now she works at our local high school! I can’t wait to take my mom’s class someday!
A Doll-Sized DSLR
And of course, every photography-loving doll needs a camera accessory of her own!
Sienna loves her DSLR camera – especially because it used to be her mom’s. It’s the same one they used for photography practice while Sienna’s mom was out of work, and the same one her mom used during her teaching interview. Sienna thinks of it as good luck.
Just don’t tell Sienna that her digital camera is really a light-up keychain!
This tiny camera was a Christmas present from my mom-in-law. It has a surprisingly detailed lens. The rest of the camera also has nice attention to detail. The body has the same shape and features as a typical DSLR, right down to “Camera” written in a very Canon-like font above the lens. As a nice little bonus, the camera lens actually flashes and makes noise to mimic a real DSLR.
Even the back is detailed, from the eyepiece to the dials and buttons. All that’s missing is a camera strap and tiny memory cards!
You can find this style of camera and others by searching for “camera keychain” on Amazon.com. They can cost anywhere from $2-5 dollars – well worth it if you consider how much American Girl would charge for something this detailed.
Camera Close Up
The keychain is just the right size for doll hands, too. Just one clear rubber band and Sienna’s ready to take pictures!
