Chimpancheez ~ Smile with Eez! (**GIVEAWAY**)

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

CHIMPANCHEEZ™ has one simple goal in mind: Bringing smiles to children’s faces!  Chimpancheez is a product to help you take photos of children, to capture their attention and get a smile on camera!

This plush green monkey will captivate your little ones when its time for that perfect smile! Hopr, an award winning design studio based in New York City, designed and developed the world of CHIMPANCHEEZ™!

MY THOUGHTS

The Chimpancheez is super easy to use!

You place the Chimpancheez on your DSLR or SLR camera lens, and you are ready to go!  This camera accessory comes with batteries, and you simply activate a variety of different color LED lights by pressing on the monkey’s hand.  The lights go in a rapidly increasing pace and then stops until you activate the lights again. I am a photographer by trade and primarily photograph children, so I was extremely excited about this product.

Unfortunately, though, the Chimpancheez did not work for me very well.  I am an outdoor natural light photographer, primarily, and this product was not a good fit for me outside.  Since the product does not make any noise, and only produces flashing lights at various speeds, the light cannot be seen while outdoors.  I used it on two different children without success.

Here is a photograph that I took using the Chimpancheez:

Determined not to give up and to give Chimpancheez its fair chance at success, I found another local Dallas photographer (iMamarazzi Studios) who was willing to take the product and test it with her own clients.  She, too, had the same experience, and found the Chimpancheez a bit heavy for her DSLR camera.  Her children also tried to grab the monkey off the camera rather than it being used as a focus point.

Here were a couple of shots from iMamarazzi Studios using the Chimpancheez:

I think that if the Chimpancheez were to only be used in a studio setting and also have the ability to make a sound, then this would be an amazingly successful product.  I can see how a child’s attention would be attracted to the monkey and bring a smile to their face!
