Hi and Happy Friday all!
What is SqueakNSnap?
The concept is genius, and using the SqueakNSnap is a breeze! It is super easy to use. Most of us who photograph children and pets know just how hard it can be to get them to look at the camera. SqueakNSnap is a cute little bear, with a button hidden in his belly, that when you plug the end of the cord that comes with it into your iPhone or Android phone headset jack or hole (with the camera app OPEN), each time you squeeze the bear’s belly, it makes a squeaky (hence the name) sound. The “squeaky” sound is nearly guaranteed to capture your child or your pet’s attention. With each “squeak” the camera “SNAPS!!” a photo!! Brilliant!! No more struggling to get the attention of your child or pet, they will automatically look in the direction of the camera, (most of the time!)
The only glitch that I thought of is, if you have an iPhone that came out BEFORE the new 7, the SqueakNSnap will work. Apple has removed the headphone jack from the new iPhones, but I have a feeling that SqueakNSnap will come up with something to compensate for that.
Here is a collage that depicts Dakota’s from when he first heard the “squeak” til when he came up close.
It worked super well with Dakota, Cody, not as much. (I think dogs are just more tuned into that “squeaky” sound).
I will use the SqueakNSnap until I get the new iPhone. One thing I learned is your first instinct is to keep squeezing the bear’s belly to get the attention of your pet, but each time you squeeze, the button in the bear’s belly, the SqueakNSnap takes a photo. (I had about 20 of the same photo until I realized that, because stupid me was too lazy to read the directions FIRST before trying it.)
Dakota is my more reluctant “model” and it worked like a champ to get his attention, I definitely recommend SqeakNSnap if you have a hard to photograph pet or child.
I would like to thank Ellen again for ALL of the fantastic prizes we won, you can see the rest of them, (and Cody somersaulting into his bed……..here!)
