If you’ve ever attempted to take posed photos of young children, then you know how difficult it is to get them to look at the camera. Seriously, it is like trying to pose a worm. Fortunately, there are camera accessories called Camera Buddies or Lens Friends to assist you with keeping a child engaged and happy while you snap away!

While attending the recent PhotoPlus Expo in NYC,  I just had to stop at the booth for Phoxi Tog, who make line of vibrantly-colored camera buddies called Phoxi Friends. They caught my attention right away!

OMG So Adorable

Phoxi Friends Camera Lens Wraps are a line of insanely cute photography tools designed for those who shoot portraits of kids.  These patented, eye-catching accessories are different from any other camera lens wrap or lens buddy on the market.

Phoxi Friends are designed to help you capture a child’s attention without having to waste your energy singing, dancing, waving your hands, and making strange noises.  The patented design has a soft plush stuffed toy on one end (that also includes a built-in squeaker), with the other end serving as a  flexible tail that can wrap around any camera lens you use. The tail can also extend the toy to interact playfully with the child.  Kids do have a short attention span, and with a nice selection of critters available, you can switch it up and wrap a different Phoxi friend around your lens to keep the smiles coming. Some kids are very shy, and this tool is a great icebreaker!

The last couple of times I passed by the Popaganda Pop Up Store on the corner of Washington and Gansevoort Streets in the meatpacking district, the shop was closed. So I’m not sure if it’s closed for good, or was just not open for business on those days. But anyway, that’s where I saw this cow.

Talk about Fierce! I’ve heard of going on a “Couch Safari” but this Taxidermy-inspired Tiger Skin Sofa is taking it a bit to the extreme! If you’re looking for a conversation-starting centerpiece for your living room perhaps this will work? Animal lovers and conservationists can rest assured that the tiger pelt is an upholstery reproduction and we are guessing that the head is a fabrication as well. Not sure of the price tag but you can find out how to get one of these Rodolfo Rocchetti designed beauties for your home at Tappezzeria Rocchetti Dot Com.
