With an aluminium and plastic body, this camera taking 6×6cm pictures on 120 film is often considered a "toy camera" probably due to the toylike appearance and the meniscus lens. It was made by the Fuji from 1957 to 1963 and was released for sale exclusively in Japan, marketed as a camera for the whole family. It is said that it was designed by Nishimura Masaki (西村雅貴), former head of Kōnan, and Tanaka Yoshio (田中芳郎), professor at the Tokyo University of Arts.[1]

A leaflet advertising the camera had factual information in Japanese only, and the following text in English only:

With the Fujipet Camera you can the pictures very easily just as you manipulate your knife and fork. So you are a good photographer from the instant when you have bought the Fujipet Camera. The Fujipet Camera enjoys great popularity among children, mothers and all the members of the family and affords happiness in all homes.

There is also a Fujipet EE and a Fujipet 35.
