WholesaleKeychain.com {Review & Giveaway} Digital Photo Keychain with Stand and optional engraving

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

I have found that I'm quickly turning into one of those parents. You know the ones, the kind that, when asked by their children for a new toy or the latest gadget, respond with, "Back when I was young..." Geez, I sound old.

Really though, back when I was young, if my mom wanted to show people pictures of my or my brother's latest accomplishments, a recent event or just a beautiful sunset, she brought out actual photographs. As well as having to worry if fingerprints were going to get on the image or if the paper would get bent, carrying around pictures was just not all that practical.

These days, technology has made life so much easier and more convenient. And, thanks to WholesaleKeychain.com, much more affordable as well. Which of these would be a more convenient way to have 100 photos with you when you're out and about?


The Digital Photo Keychain & Keyring with Stand - Silver is a simple and stylish way to always have your favorite photographs with you. Compatible with both a PC or Mac, it does not require any special software or skills so anyone can have their pictures uploaded and ready to go in minutes. Right out of the box, I plugged the provided USB cord into the keychain and my computer and was already on my way.

Although the program did not automatically start, the provided instructions told me exactly where to look to begin. After opening the window, I simply browsed to find the pictures I wanted to upload and they immediately popped up in the preview window.


After cropping to the dimensions of the frame, one click on the Download button and my photos were transferred right to the Digital Photo Keychain. Viewing them is just as easy on the 1.5" screen, as there are only 3 buttons (forward, backward and menu) right on the keychain itself.

Hold the menu button for 3 seconds to turn the power on and you're ready to scroll through the images for friends and family. Or, turn on the slideshow option and let the show happen all on its own.


Two features that I really appreciate from the Digital Photo Keychain & Keyring with Stand are the ability to display a clock (I never know what time it is) and the auto shut-off. During the time I've used it, I've set down this keychain and walked away multiple times, so the fact that it turns itself off and saves the battery is a big plus for me.

For the convenience of having a personal mobile photo album right in your hand, the Digital Photo Keychain & Keyring with Stand is a great little gadget to have. The instructions suggest to charge the battery once a month, which is easily done by plugging it right in to your computer, and uploading or removing pictures is simple enough that even those with limited knowledge of technology will be able to do it.

For individual or large orders, WholesaleKeychain.com has keychains and keyrings for every personality. From fun and whimsical Disney Keychains and Games & Toys (who doesn't need an Operation Game Keychain for impromptu entertainment?) to practical Flash Drives and Pepper Spray, they have it all. For a personal touch, WholesaleKeychains.com even offers engraving to commemorate any occasion or create the perfect gift.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will have a portable way to carry and display 100 of their favorite photos (16MB memory!), because...

One lucky person will win a Digital Photo Keychain & Keyring with Stand - Silver AND have the option to have it engraved!
