Christmas Gift Idea: Frozen Puzzle Play Mats for Babies to Toddlers

Having a 3-year-old niece is such a delight to the whole family, most especially if this little one can already sing, dance and even perform lovely Disney Princess that they adore. Our little Elaisha Monique, for example, is still captivated by the magic of the latest Disney Princess movie, Frozen. Every time she hears or sees Elsa or Anna, there’s definitely a loud shrill around the house, then followed by “Let it go, let it go,” which is the famous line of the movie’s soundtrack, Let It Go.

And since seeing her grow to be a jolly and music loving kid, who also love dress and Disney princess, giving her some Frozen collectible would surely delight her most and will make her childhood more fun and memorable.

FUJIFILM X Series Leads the Revolution in Photography

Any photography expert and enthusiast will tell you that the best camera is the one you have with you. In this age when we’re constantly trying to unburden ourselves, bringing around a big and bulky DSLR is no longer practical and simply does not suit our daily lifestyle. But imagine shrinking a DSLR while retaining, even improving its most viable features—high resolution, color accuracy, and advanced auto-focus technology: That is exactly what you’ll get with a Mirrorless camera.

More compact, capable, and user-friendly, Mirrorless cameras are the future of photography and can out-perform DSLRs in form and function. A Mirrorless camera does not have the mirror-reflex found inside DSLRs, which reflects light into the viewfinder - and in turn makes DSLRs bulky. By removing this mirror, light travels directly into the camera’s sensor, allowing for a lighter and quieter camera, while still giving users the option of changing and choosing from a variety of lenses. It gives great image quality that can rival that of full-sized DSLRs - but without the back strain.
