Review: Spy Gear Undercover Spy Cam Phone, The Walls Now Have Eyes

Spy Cam Phone

Moms and Dads, we can’t hide in the shadows anymore.  No more sneaking into the kid’s room to play with their toys while they are at school.  No more night trips to the kitchen to grab the last donut and then sprinkling powder on the dog’s snout in the morning to try to frame him.  The gig is up for us, for siblings…for everyone.

The Spy Gear Undercover Spy Cam Phone has now been released.  Kids can now suction cup a motion activated camera where ever they want and grab still shots of everything that goes on in the house.  We can try to deny everything, but all they need to do is snap the camera into the Undercover Spy Phone and the LCD screen on back reveals everything.

Please watch our video review of the Spy Gear Undercover Spy Cam Phone…

Looks Like A Phone…Acts Like a Spy Camera

As everyone knows, the key to any good spy toy is that nothing is as it seems.  The Undercover Spy Cam looks like a cellphone or smartphone, but it’s not.  It does not look much like a detachable motion activated camera…but it is!  Ah, deception, the key to being a good spy.

We love how you can quickly transform the toy into a motion activated spy cam.  The camera pulls off, you slide open a secret compartment, attach a suction cup and get to the business of being a spy.  It is all very James Bond like and adds a great deal of imaginative play value to the toy.

Here are some more details on the Undercover Spy Cam –

  • The Spy Gear Undercover Spy Cam looks like a cellphone, but has a secret detachable camera that can be placed on walls!
  • Catch suspects red-handed with the motion-activated stealth camera as it automatically takes photos.
  • Re-attach the camera to view the captured images on an LCD screen.
  • The Undercover Spy Cam is made for spies ages 6+ and requires 2 x AAA batteries for operation (not included)
  • Includes: 1 Undercover Spy Cam, 1 USB Cable, 1 Suction Cup, 1 Instruction Guide

Remember, This Is A $30 Toy

While the Spy Gear Undercover Spy Cam has some cool technology and absolutely does take photos…it is still a toy.  The quality of the photos is not great, there is no memory expansion and no ability to shoot video.  If you are looking for a serious spy camera, you will not get it in this $30 toy.

As a Spy Toy, the Undercover Spy Cam is great because it combines technology with imaginative play.  Kids are going to love transforming the camera and being able to instantly view the photos on the built-in LCD screen.  My guess is most kids will never even bother hooking this up to their PC.  The real fun is playing spy games and having a cool toy with a functional camera and TV screen.

Hmm, while the resolution is not great, it does seem to be good enough to prove it was me who ate the cookies.  Time to go with Plan B…I was being controlled by zombie cookie monsters at the time…
