Our interest in photography techniques started out by creating a "Birdie" toy with Smile for Me Toys™. The Original "Birdie" Toy was designed to help get infants and toddlers, distant teens, relatives and friends to smile for your camera, tablet or cell phone. Fun Photo Booths got more popular and we always had fond memories of family board game night so.......
The SnapShotz Photography Board Game® was created in 2015 which uses "any camera (smart phone, tablet or iPhone) around a table where cards are drawn for poses and photography and photo booth props are used throughout the game." (US Patent and Trademark reg. no. 4,809,362)

(Special thanks to Cartoonist Emily Caesar, "Watch the Birdie" Written by Don Raye and Gene DePaul, as sung by Anita O'Day with Gene Krupa and Roy Eldridge. SmileForMeToys dedicates it to another great American Icon with her connections to the song, Martha Raye in which their legacies live on with us.)
