Create Your Very Own Personalized View Master Reels: Image 3D Review & Giveaway (Holiday Gift Guide)

Did you have a View Master when you were growing up?  If you did, then you will remember how cool it was to put a new real inside and be taken to another beautiful place somewhere in the world.

 

I was recently given the opportunity to create and customize an Image 3D reel of my very own, and I have to say that it is one of the coolest things I've seen in quite sometime.  Not only is it fun and unique - it's the perfect gift for everyone - young and old alike!

With Image 3D it’s easy and fun to create and customize your very own personal view-master style reels and viewers using your own photos!  You can even add 3D captions to your photos as you build your reel. The viewer is available in four colors: white, black, red, and blue.

I decided to create a special gift for my daughter for Christmas of our summer beach vacation, as a view master was one item on her holiday wish list this year.  Although she hasn't seen it yet, I know she's going to be SO excited when she opens it and looks through her view master for the very first time.  It will be a keepsake memory that she can cherish for years to come!

Our customized Image 3D reel
Image 3D view masters and custom reels are the perfect gift or keepsake for any occasion.  Family vacations, the birth of your children/grandchildren, birthdays, weddings, graduation, and so much more!  Each Image 3D Celebrate set comes with a handout box and handout boxes ARE mailable!  All you need to do is seal the lid closed.  It's the perfect gift made easy!

One of the exciting things about our Reel Builder is that when you add text using our text tool, the text will appear in 3D

I would add some photos of my husband and I, our wedding, and pictures of my son throughout the years.

I would make a reel of photos from my beautiful granddaughter's first year as a gift to her parents

Heather! said...

This is so cool! I think being able to add captions is cool enough, but 3D? Awesome! Also love how customer-centered the company seems to be, offering lots of help and instruction and seeing that your order goes out to you within a week, usually five days. Cool.

Heather! said...

I think I would make one of our recent wedding. It would be a cool gift to give my husband for our first anniversary!

Joy N. said...

I read about Rich Dubnow and how he started the company. What a neat product! I love these viewers when I was young.

karenmed409 said...

This is cool, I learned with the Reel Builder,you can add standout 3D captions and edit your 2D photos. And they have pretty quick turn around on shipping, usually within 5 days.

karenmed409 said...

I would create a reel for each child for each of their birthday. Just so they can see how they have grown each year. Or do a reel with all the grandchildren photos from our family reunions. I am sure great grandma would love it.

Brenda said...

You can add text, awesome!

Brenda said...

I would make a vacation one

Smart Shack said...

It is one of the best device for smart home automation system

Jennifer Young said...

You can personalize it with your own pictures and add 3d text to it as well!

Abigail said...

Awesome idea - I used to love my view master! I learned they will create and ship out your order within 5 days!

Abigail said...

I think Id create a reel of my favorite pictures of my kids and add 3D captions to each one.

wen budro said...

I learned that they ship super fast within 5 days and that you can actually add text to your personalized 3-D images....pretty darn cool indeed.

wen budro said...

I would def give this to either my niece or nephew and I'm sure that they would use images of their family and friends in the personalized 3-D reel.

EJ Morales said...

Super easy you can add text & ships within 5 days

EJ Morales said...

I would create a year in review, an easy way to keep those milestone memories

Carmen Van Deursen said...

I like that these are real pictures and not the tradition toy reels. I like that they have fast shipping because it would be hard waiting for one of these. Super clever item!

Cheryl said...

Customizing a Viewmaster reel would be so much fun to do!! I think I would start with vacation pics. I actually have a collection of old Viewmaster reels and some of the old Viewmasters (including the old black ones).

Cheryl said...

Oh and I learned that the last day to order to get the product by Christmas is UPS next day air, December 15th.

lisagee1234 said...

The custom reel would be the recent visit to my town and all the places myself & my visitors went.

lisagee1234 said...

I learned that they come in these colors---> Red, black, blue, and white.

Michele P. said...

I learned that the view masters in the last few decades had photos shot by one man, Rich Dubnow, who in 1997 went on to form his own company Image3D and that the viewers can come in red, black, blue or white.

jeanette sheets said...

that u now can add text to them i like that

Kimberly said...

Wow! I had a View Master as a kid and so did my kids. This is an awesome idea to have your own photo and texts.

Kimberly said...

For a custom reel I would create one for our youngest daughter with all the extended family on it. She would love it.

Mrs_Fish said...

These are a great gift- 7 pictures per reel, and you can order just a reel once you have a viewer.

Sandra VanHoey said...

Once we receive your order, we get to work on making your custom reel. Literally, every part of the process is hand checked by our team, made right in our shop, and from the U.S.A.! Then, in just 5 short business days, your custom reel heads out the door. Quick & an awesome product

Sandra VanHoey said...

I'd make one with all the grandchildren

Anne N. said...

I like I can put my kids favorite pictures on it. So cool!

PeacePeach said...

What a beautiful thing. I've just come home from a sort of sad family reunion, but with lots of happy memories and new relationships with far-flung relatives. This is how I'll commemorate the trip for the grandchildren who were unable to be there, too. A View-Master series on "Where You Come From."

Michele P. said...

a custom reel I would like to make would probably be one that had several of my favorite photos from our trips to Guatemala to visit hubby's family over the last 3 years.

Aubrey said...

Would love to make a reel of our baby girl for my husband! I learned that it would be hard to pick only 7 pictures, though!

Tylerpants said...

What a unique gift this would be! I learned that if you have 3D images, you can make a 3D reel. tylerpants(at)gmail.com

This is so cool! They designed their products to be compatible with View-Master products
