Itty Bitty Instax Camera

So over July 4th weekend, Hubby and I brought the kids on a short road trip across the border to spend the holiday in Vancouver, B.C.. We visit the Richmond Night Market every Summer and this year was no exception. We always find interesting trinkets at the fair and on this trip, I was especially thrilled to find these:


At first sight, they resemble the balls from the Gacha Gacha machines that we bought at the MT Expo. When I looked closer, I realized that they were mini Fujifilm Instax camera keychains! They were just like miniature versions of the Fujifilm Instax Mini-8 instant film cameras! *freaking out*


Ever since Hubby bought me a Fujifilm Instax Mini-25 several years ago, I have been slowly building my collection of Instax instant film cameras. I just never knew that they come so small!


Seriously, how cute is this? It measures only about 1.25" x 1.25". My Instax Mini-25 looks huge next to it!


If you are or will be in the Vancouver B.C. area, you can find these at the Instax booth in the Richmond Night Market. I was so giddy with excitement when I found these that I did not take note of the name of the booth but you cannot miss it. "Instax" is on their banner and they only sell Instax-related stuff.


These keychains were $8 for a pair but I had to have one of each color available. Who cares that they are not real working cameras? They are too stinkin' cute! When the Instax Mini-8 were first released, I had a hard time picking out the one color that I had allowed myself to buy. With these keychains I can finally pretend that I have them all.

Hubby calls this shot "The Family Portrait". lol!

And they look just as pretty as I imagined that they will be.

  1. Were your kids wondering why you were so hyper excited? LOL! You have a beautiful collection! Thanks for sharing this post. I had no idea these cameras existed. I'll be sure to check out that booth. Each time I'm in Seattle, I MUST visit Uwajimaya and the Kinokuniya bookstore to inspect every aisle till hubby can't take it anymore.
