*Disclaimer - I received the item mentioned below, free of charge, for review purposes. In no way did this alter my review. All of my opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent honest and true.*

43 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT: Image 3D

GET TO KNOW IMAGE 3D 
Image 3D offers unique customized reels for both businesses and also for personal use. Remember playing with View Master toys as a kid? Well guess what? You get to play with View Master now as an adult too! That's because Image 3D offers a patent reel builder that allows customers to create their very own reels customized with special photos and text. Image 3D was founded by Rich Dubnow, who just so happens to be the same person who shot images for the original View Master!   


PRODUCT: ViewMaster Reel






OUR THOUGHTS:
I was delighted to work with Image 3D on my gift guide event. I found out about their unique product while browsing a blog and was immediately intrigued by the product. You see, I grew up playing with View Masters,  so the thought of designing my very own was intriguing to me, to say the least. I couldn't wait to design my very own reel.

Building a reel is very simple and doesn't take long at all. You begin by uploading photos that you can select to use in your frames. You will get to include a total of 7 photos, so that's 7 frames. You will also get to add a center photo which is for looks more than anything. After you upload your pictures you can then edit them one by one, by adjusting the photo in the frame, selecting a photo color, and adjusting the image. You are also given an option to add a personalized text. Once you are finished, add your selected photos to the reel and then preview your reel. You will be given a choice between three different options when ordering:

  1. Reel Only
  2. Reel & Viewer Set
  3. Reel & Viewer Set w/a Custom Viewer Imprint
The viewer comes in four colors: White, Black, Red, and Blue. I chose the Red viewer because it reminded me of the original View Master that I played with as a child. 

I kept an eye out for the box and as soon as it arrived I immediately opened it up. As I looked into the viewer it reminded me of my childhood. However this viewer offered something the ones in my past did not - special photos of my family!  The photos really pop out at you, especially the ones that include text. I included atleast one picture of each one of us in our family, and also a special photo of my daughter and niece together. Because, you can only add 7 photos, I had to be selective with my images. 

My kids enjoy showing the photos off to their friends as it makes such a fun way to share photos, while I enjoy sharing the photos with my friends and family, for the same purpose! 

The View Master Image 3D product would make an excellent holiday gift for any child, mother, father, grandparents, teachers - basically just about everyone!



BUY IT: You can purchase a Reel & Viewer Set for $29.99.

My youngest is developmentally disabled and her passion is her pictures of our family that she likes to line up. I think this would be really fun and a different way for her to enjoy family pictures.
