My daughter loves to watch herself dance! This only works best on a tv 13" or smaller. No complaints about distortion since we use the product the way the instuctions tell us to.
I've read other reviews and it seems as if the parents take this toy back to the store because the picture isn't a good quality. THIS IS A TOY!!!!!! If you want your kids to have a better quality picture, hook up your own cam corder and let them watch themselves.
Playskool Dance CamInspire your child to shake and shimmy when they step in front of this kid-friendly console that projects them onto your TV (TV not included) and dance along to kid-friendly tunes and adorable preschool characters! Simply insert the batteries (not included) into the console and connect it to your TV VCR or DVD player. Adjust the camera angle and select a mode to get the dance party started. In Dance Along mode kids can get down with adorable Playskool characters while bee-bopping to 20 popular and playful preschool tunes - as kids move and groove to the lively music an animated Playskool friend appears on screen in a colorful background setting. Cool Moves Mode help teach your little toe tapper some new moves to four different songs. Kids simply follow the animated on-screen character to learn a brand new dance. And for kids who like to march to the beat of a different drum Freestyle Mode lets you connect a CD or MP3 player (not included) into the consoles audio jack. Then kids can bust a move solo-style on screen to their favorite music. An auto shut-off feature helps conserve battery life until your little star is ready to rumba again!
