Description: This is a working camcorder (video camera) designed just for children and a small TV to watch the movies that they record! The camcorder records sounds and pictures on high bias audio cassettes. These cassettes do not look like VHS movie cassettes, they look like music cassette tapes that can be played in standard tape players. The camcorder comes with TV hook up accessories to play the recorded tape either on the TV that was sold with the set or on any other standard television (no VCR required). The recorded pictures are black and white and the picture is fuzzy, but the PXL 2000 was not only the first camcorder ever introduced by Fisher-Price, but it also marked the birth of a new era in technology making it quite desireable as a novelty to video buffs. Designed for children ages 8 years and older.
