    Whilst it is advertised as a 'TOY',its main purpose for me is to transfer photographs etc. onto canvas before painting. So it is not used as a toy, but an aid to my painting. It does lack a lot of refinement (uneven finish on the base means I have to level it) and the lens falls out if you are not careful.
    All that aside, it is the cheapest way I have found of transferring images onto canvas,whilst maintaining correct perspective etc.

    Amazon's price was the best I could find, and with no postage to pay it made it a decent buy.

    It does the job I want (just) and as the next alternatives such as overhead projectors etc. are so expensive, it is the only option within my purse at present.

    I bought this not as a toy but as a serious aid for my daughter in her A-level Art studies. The notion of this being a toy had escaped me till I wrote this review, which asked for ratings with reference to this item being a toy. I answered positively on all even though it is not a toy, as far as my daughter is concerned. This is a serious bit of useful kit for her.

    My daughter loves this tool -it works exactly as it is supposed to, and her results from start onwards have been completely what she wants. It provides very clear enlargements of even quite small pictures, and she is happily working on scaled-up images traced onto paper on which she shone the projected image.

    The optics are good enough to produce an image that is accurate enough for tracing work, and it is very easy to use and set up. It is reasonably robustly constructed. It should withstand minor knocks and bumps though as with all optical instruments, it's better to avoid the knocks and bumps.

    A good product which has fulfilled expectations.

    Highly recommended,

    AA

    I bought one of these, some years ago, have used it many times and can say it really is a good and, for the money, cheap, easy to use projector. artograph also have the 'prism' projector, which is hugely expensive for what it is, as it works on the same principle as this tracer, in fact for the same price you are into digital all singing, dancing projectors. A reviewer said they have used it for photographs, I never have but would question whether the heat from the bulb would cause the photo to warp?, as the image is not that far from the light source. Basically what you have here is light and mirrors, simple but very effective way to transfer a image to another surface.
    Size matters; the image needs to fit within the 5x5inch base, but don't let that fool you as it will enlarge greatly. The further away from the surface the larger the image and visa versa, focus is manual/turning the front focus ring, which has never fallen off during my use. Very easy to use. As another has pointed out, the tracer can get a little warm, and as it is an electric item then if a child is to use it an adult should be in charge, and for that reason I feel it should not be classed as a toy. It is lightweight/portable and I do not consider it flimsy.
    If you want to transfer images to walls,canvas, paper... whatever, and do not want to pay the earth then this will do the job very well.

    THis projector is a brilliant way to enlarge any image - from your own drawings and photos to a pretty leaf found out on a walk. Good for artists of all ability and kids too. Just what I was looking for. I think it is a fair price too. I was worried it would be heavy but it is very light a movable.

    After trying to get an inexpensive LED projector which was no good,I returned to this,my original choice.I now wish I'd saved myself the time and expense of the LED projector and ordered this at the start.

    It does what it is designed for very well.The bulb was broken on arrival but a quickly replied to email sorted it out and I got credit as compensation which will come in handy as I shop with Jacksons art anyway.

    The build quality is good enough and the lens is easy to focus and it didn't fall of as all it takes is moving the unit a little.Even print was easy to read.

    I have ordered a daylight bulb as a replacement as they are the brightest.All in all, I recommend this projector.

    This is a lightweight plastic projector so not really suitable for little hands, however once set up by an adult, it is a great educational tool.
    The maximum size it accepts is 5 inches square but you can copy larger images by shuffling them round.
    Zoom goes from x2 to x40, if you've paper large enough.
    It gives children the opportunity to produce realistic pictures the can be coloured in and with continual use, a child will soon not need it, they will have the shapes in their heads and so this is an excellent beginners introduction to drawing just about anything.
    Having seen my two children 'fight' over who is going to use it, I would say that this is excellent value for money.

    I've had my Tracer Projector for about 15 years now, and it is still going strong. Yes, it does feel cheap but the money has clearly gone into the lens and mirrors as blown-up images are crisp without fringing or distortion. It is a very simple piece of equipment and doesn't need threaded focus which would just have increased costs without improving performance! Gently pulling or pushing whilst rotating the lens allows fine adjustments to be made. There is a bit of to and fro to get a crisp image at the size you want but once set (about 5 mins max) all the action is then at the art end with the projector just doing its thing. You do have to use in a darkened room.

    I wouldn't describe this as a toy, it would be a useful tool for a sensible teenager interested in art.

    I use mine to create applique for the kites I make and have never failed to get admiring comments.
